PHYS208 Topics in Advanced Physical SciencesUpdated: 25 October 2018
Intensive schools are for students enrolled in Online Mode only, unless specified in the notes.
|Supervised Exam||There is a supervised exam at the end of the teaching period in which you are enrolled. The paper-based exam will be held at an established exam venue, and coordinated by UNE Exams Unit.|
|Pre-requisites||(PHYS121 or PHYS131) and (PHYS122 or PHYS132) and (MATH101 or MTHS120) and (MATH102 or MTHS130) or (candidature in a postgraduate award and permission of head of school) or (candidature in a Bachelor of Education and permission of head of school)|
|Restrictions||ASTY221 (for Astrophysics topic only)|
Not all topics will be offered each year. Currently the Astrophysics/Cosmology topic is being offered. The students may consult the unit coordinator for advice on whether additional topics will be available.
Candidates for a postgraduate award may seek permission from the head of school to waive the pre-requisites.
This unit is a repeatable unit.
|Coordinator(s)||Stephen Bosi (firstname.lastname@example.org)|
The unit will cover a topic taken from advanced physical sciences such as computational physics, astrophysics, cosmology, superconductivity, particle and nuclear physics, quantum and classical mechanics, thermal and statistical physics, relativity, medical physics, sensor and wireless networks, technical sensing and electromagnetism. This unit will deal with scientific models, theories and laws, and structures related to the physical world, matter and space; the history, nature and practice of physics; the application and use of physics and the social and ethical implications of physics.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
|Disclaimer||Unit information may be subject to change prior to commencement of the teaching period.|
