Physics - Applied

The course aims to equip students with a wide variety of skills essential in experimental physics, with particular focus on electronics, computer programming, and computerbased instrumentation and interfacing.

Key features of this course are its hands-on nature, its emphasis on applied project work and extensive staff input to individual students. It puts strong emphasis on skills that are transferable within the wider science-based industry and academia, including: computer programming, electronics design, prototyping and testing, instrumentation and computer interfacing, modelling, data analysis and presentation.


In general, there are two levels of fees payable. EU students from EU countries including Ireland pay a subsidised level of fees for both taught courses and research programmes. Tuition fees for students from outside the EU are not subsidised and are thus somewhat higher than for EU students.
