The Bachelor in Physics is taught in English. This degree programme develops critical thinking, rigour and creativity, preparing students for present and future industry needs.

With a strong foundation in physics and mathematics, the Bachelor in Physics encourages critical thinking, problem solving and innovation. Students are prepared for further study or international careers in engineering science or in the many different fields of physics.

The numerous laboratory sessions and the hands-on projects help students to understand the concepts studied, and train them as future scientists and experimenters.

Over three years, students will partake in lectures, problem solving sessions, laboratory sessions, projects, internship, written technical reports and oral presentations. A language course has been integrated to expand our student’s capacity in this area, which will stand them in good stead for further study or international careers in physics. History of sciences, career planning and introduction to engineering courses are also part of the programme.

The Sciences and Engineering Department maintains close collaborations with the Masdar Institute, Cleveland Clinic, the UAE Space Agency, FANR and other institutions and companies, which will increase our student’s exposure to real-world expectations and interests.

The Bachelor in Physics helps students launch successful careers in engineering, research and development, teaching and other professions. Jobs can include an engineering associate or research assistant in a laboratory, work for a government institute or major industrial firm, journalists in science and popular science and a sales representative for technical products.
