  • PH-203 Statistical Physics

    The aim of this module is to derive thermodynamics from the fundamental laws of microscopic physics and to introduce the student to the fundamental aspects of classical and quantum statistical physics. Maxwell-Boltzmann, Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein statistics will be discussed.

  • PH-312 Advanced Research in Physics

    Experiments conducted in two weekly 3-hour laboratory sessions on topics related to advanced research themes in Physics. Students will be allocated by staff to appropriate themes.
