Overview

Physics is the study of the fundamental laws of nature, and is widely applied in modern science and engineering. Physics is also the basis of research advances from subatomic to cosmic scales, and underpins the development of new technologies such as quantum computing.  Physics combined with mathematics is fundamental to science, technology and engineering.

USQ’s physics courses and degrees enable students to survey classical and modern physics, develop professional knowledge and skills in optics, photonics, modern physics and quantum mechanics, apply physics in different areas including astronomical and space sciences, obtain research project experience, and graduate with widely useful scientific, numerical and critical analysis skills.
