Bachelor's Degree Programme, 3-years, Trondheim



About physics

Nothing is too small and nothing is too big in the world of physics. Questions from the innermost to the outermost secrets of the universe are parts of this subject area. As are questions about how for instance the future climate and processes in the human body are governed by the laws of physics. The course covers many areas, from elementary particles to cosmology, and from biophysics at cell level to the development of oil technology, climate models to new understanding within the fields of material physics and nanotechnology.

In the Bachelor's programme you will first of all gain basic knowledge in mathematics and in the basis of physics: mechanics, electromagnetism, wave physics, thermal physics and last but not least; quantum physics, which play a central role in large parts of modern physics. Here you will acquire both theoretical and experimental techniques and skills. This study also provides you with a basis for further specialisation into the Master's degree programme. The Bachelor programme supplemented with a Master's degree will be a good starting point for a lot of jobs within the field of physics. For some, it may be of interest to go further, with research studies in the form of a PhD degree.
