Physics: Frontiers in Physics
- To expand student's experience and knowledge of physics from experimental to computational and theoretical
- To give an introduction to the skills required to do physics on this scale
- To provide an insight into what it means to be a research physicist
A series of seminars, interactive lectures and practical workshops will be used to stimulate thought and discussion.
Students will have the opportunity to work in groups to research and present their own ideas in formal and informal situations.
There will also be a guest speaker and a visit
