definition of Physics is that it is “the study of matter, energy, and the
interaction between them”. It is a broad field that includes heat, light sound,
electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms. It is one of the most
complex and abstract sciences to understand.
degree in physics equips you with highly critical skills that include:
analytical and problem solving skills that are in demand in many fields, which
offer a sound background for understanding an increasingly technological
society. Additionally, the course equips you with experience for life-long
learning in a rapidly changing world; mathematical skills that can be applied
in wide ranging environments; computational skills that are marketable in many
sectors of the economy.
course at Wits covers the fundamental concepts of classical physics and covers
some modern physics topics.
partner subjects are Computer Science and Computational and Applied Maths.
Adding Chemistry opens the route to Materials Science. Adding Geography adds a
route to Geophysics.
