Honours BSc in Physics/ BASc in Electrical Engineering – 159 units

Academic year 2017-2018

Discover the fundamental laws of nature, and then apply this knowledge in the design of breakthrough technologies that will transform our society. While physics probes big questions, from the origin of the universe to the workings of the quantum world, electrical engineering underlies the technologies that are ubiquitous in our modern world, from power generation to the computer chip. 

By teaching you the foundations of how nature works, and then how to innovate with this knowledge, this integrated program will uniquely equip you to tackle societal and technological problems facing us and future generations. In five years you will earn two degrees, in physics and electrical engineering, and will be truly challenged to defy the conventional.
