Applied Physics

University of Groningen

Bachelor Undergraduate Groningen

Course description

Qualification Bachelor of Science
Field of study Engineering
Course summary Physics is concerned with describing and predicting natural phenomena. Applied physics is concerned with applying physics in technical solutions. Design and construction are important aspects of this.
Course description Applied physics is at the heart of society. It forms the basis for many of the products we use in daily life. The programme has a strong interdisciplinary orientation, with an emphasis on combinations of subjects: physics with design studies, nanotechnology, new materials and systems and control engineering Applied physics involves studying not only how phenomena come about, but also how to use them for technical solutions. The programme focuses on theory and practice. Critical appraisal skills Applied physics is an academic subject, which means that you acquire not only knowledge, but also skills such as presentation, working in a team and setting up and conducting research. We teach you critical appraisal skills, which you will learn to apply to your own and other's work. Tough subject Applied physics can certainly be described as a 'tough' subject. In order to study it you need to have an affinity for sciences and you need to have an enquiring and creative mind that wonders how things work.
