Engineering Physics is the application of physical principles and techniques to engineering and technology. This degree provides the knowledge and skills of a physics training that are required for producing engineering solutions in real-world situations. Physics at Aberystwyth University is accredited by the IOP (Institute of Physics). Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, but one which makes significant contributions to modern society, with theoretical breakthroughs feeding into new sciences and fostering modern technologies.

Cyflogadwyedd

What can I do with a degree in Engineering Physics?

This course is designed to allow students to progress and pursue a career in Engineering, Research and development.

But other graduates from the Physics department have discovered other pathways:

  • Medical physicist
  •  Radiation protection practitioner
  • Research Scientist
  • Systems developer
  • Product development
  • Technical author
  • Meteorologists

 

Employability is embedded across all of our teaching and ethics. We instill these skills to our students:

• research and data analysis skills
• enhanced mathematical and computational skills
• effective problem-solving and creative thinking skills
• the ability to work independently
• time-management and organisational skills, including the ability to meet deadlines
• the ability to express ideas and communicate information in a clear and structured manner, in both written and oral form
• self-motivation and self-reliance
• team-working, with the ability to discuss concepts in groups, accommodating different ideas and reaching agreement

What work experience opportunities exist whilst studying? 

If you are interested in undertaking a work placement, then our sister course BEng Engineering Physics with integrated year in industry will be for you. This course is identical to its sister course, however you will have an additional year to undertake this placement.

  • Instrumentation, Electronics and Sensors
  • Opitcs
  • Electricity and Magnetism 
  • Experimental Physics 
  • Quantum Mechanics

In your third year you may research:

  • Concepts in condensed matter physics
  • Numerical Methods
  • Systems Engineering 
  • Engineering Control Theory 
  • Semiconductor Technology
  • An individual project
  • Probing Atoms and Molecules
  • Professional issues industry
  • Modern Optics and Photonics
  • Condensed Matter Structure Determination 
  • Machine Learning 
  • Space Robotics

How will I be taught?

We teach our students through lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, practicals, individual and group-based project work.

We assess our students through coursework, presentations, lab reports, lab diaries and examinations.

Further information:

You will be assigned a personal tutor throughout your degree course, who will help you with any problems or queries, whether these are academic-related or personal issues. You should feel free to contact them at any time for help and advice.

You will also have the opportunity to complete a Personal Development Plan (PDP) at Aberystwyth. This is a structured process of self-appraisal, reflection, and planning, which will enable you to chart your personal, academic and professional development throughout your time at university. By recording your academic performance, and highlighting the skills you already have and those you will need for future employability, the PDP portfolio will equip you with the necessary tools to plan effectively, develop successful approaches to study, and consider your future career options and aspirations.

Students wishing to study through the medium welsh may do so with our welsh medium modules.
