Course Overview

This programme equips students with the knowledge in physics and instrumentations, and operational technical skill, which would lay the foundation for applications in various industrial areas. Students will go through training in the applications of physics and instrumentations, computer simulations, designing virtual instruments using Labview and handling advanced equipment such as thermal evaporator and atomic force microscope. This programme would lay the foundation for future applied physics innovators in material sciences, instrumentations, biomedical and healthcare equipment designers. Academically, this programme has adequate coverage in its core physics contents, and graduates are well prepared to continue their post-graduate studies in physics, locally or overseas. Additionally, they can also pursue post-graduate studies in cross-disciplinary fields such as nanoscience, biophysics, chemical physics, medical physics, and geophysics.
