The design of the Undergraduate physics course reflects the need to provide as wide a base as the human resource of the department permit.  It is intended to provide a sound basis in the subject during the first three years, with some specialization in chosen areas offered during the final year.  It is designed to equip students with the necessary knowledge, experience and skills to pursue careers as scientists within industry, administration, education and, of course research. 

At a later stage, the B.Sc. programme in Physics equips students to join Postgraduate courses (both locally and abroad).


  • Undergraduate Programme of Studies - Joint Area
  • Undergraduate Programme of Studies - Computational Physics



Students are to submit a Declaration on Plagiarism for all their submitted work. 



The department of Physics offers a range of postgraduate programmes, including Masters (part taught/part research or fully by research), M.Phil. and Ph.D. in the following areas:
  • Electromagnetics
  • Instrumentation
  • Astrophysics, Cosmology and Astronomy
  • Quantum Optomechanics


Additional Information


There seems to be an increase in the number of reported cases of plagiarism, especially, but not exclusively, from Internet sources.  This has happened at all levels and in all types of submitted work.
You are reminded of the definition of the term plagiarism according to the Regulations Governing Conduct at Examinations, 1997: “the unacknowledged use, as one’s own, of work of another person, whether or not such work has been published”.  Your attention is also drawn to the document Guidelines on Plagiarism, jointly approved by the Faculties of Science and Information and Communications Technology in June 2007.  Students are instructed to follow this link, when relevant.   


All students taking physics study units requiring the submission of course work, including laboratory reports, are therefore required to submit a duly filled paper copy of the standard declaration form (available here [PDF]) along with every piece of submitted work and also to submit a “soft” version in machine readable form, which will be retained by the Department for future reference.
