Year - 2020

This unit is normally restricted to students not majoring in Physics, or for students during the transition period from 2018 units to 2019 3000-level physics units, giving them the flexibility to take a combination of modules that is not offered in the standard units. The unit consists of a combination totalling 6CP from the following modules offered in PHYS3034 and PYS3036: Particle Physics (2CP), Statistical Mechanics (2CP), Quantum Mechanics (2CP), Condensed Matter Physics (2CP), Computational Physics (2CP) and Experimental Physics (2CP or 4CP). Please obtain permission from the Senior Physics Coordinator.
