This course will teach you how to apply physics to improve and maximise energy efficiency.In Levels 1 and 2, you'll study modules within physics. You'll develop a deep understanding of fundamental physics, from astronomical phenomena to quantum mechanics.As the course progresses, you'll gain knowledge in classical physics as well as advancements in modern physics, and apply this knowledge to renewable energy science. In your final year, you'll undertake an independent research project related to renewables.Our Physics Society runs regular social events. They have organised trips to CERN, Munich, and Amsterdam as well as the annual Physics Ball. You can meet with students from all year groups to help guide you through the more challenging aspects of the course. We are the only Scottish university taking part in the CMS Collaboration, a major experiment at the Large Hadron Collider CERN.
