About

This course is about understanding the world around us at its most fundamental level. The knowledge generated through the study of physics is also the driving force behind most new technologies, from radars to lasers, from transistors to quantum computers, and from electron microscopes to advanced medical imaging scanners.

You will develop a combination of high-level research, analytical and problem-solving skills which are highly valued by industry and government employers. The Master of Physics can be undertaken in one of the following: astronomy and astrophysics (astronomy techniques, astro-statistics, galactic dynamics, compact objects, astrophysical shocks, plasma astrophysics, space electrodynamics and high-energy astrophysics); computational physics (numerical methods, high performance computing, graphics processing unit (GPU) programming and methods of computational physics); experimental physics (data analysis and methods of experimental physics); medical physics (commissioning, calibration, safe operation and maintenance of these medical systems that help to diagnose and treat thousands of people every year); OR theoretical physics (discipline-specific knowledge at the frontiers of modern physics).
