Physics

Physics is the study of how the universe works, from the smallest atomic nucleus to the largest galaxy. It includes conceptual challenges such as quantum theory, relativity and chaos theory, and lies at the heart of most modern technology – without it, there’d be no laser scanners in the supermarket, no smartphones, and no space flights.

Physicists are critical-thinkers and problem-solvers who are in-demand across a range of industries: you might choose to work in aerospace or physics, or transfer your skills to finance or IT.

From an intellectual point of view, Physics at Queen’s is an exciting challenge designed to encourage you to ask the bigger questions that can help unravel the mysteries of the universe.
