Hours & Credits
In this subject, students explore fundamental quantum physics and its application to understanding the electronic and thermal properties of matter. This subject is one of four such subjects at third year level that together constitute the Physics major stream. This stream is an excellent preparation for a career in research or education in the physical sciences and also for honours and post-graduate research studies in Physics.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
