About the Department:   


To create knowledge of interest and applications in physics, and to educate students to excel in it.


To be unambiguously recognised nationally as the leading Physics Department for its outstanding research and teaching.

Physics a “knowledge of nature”, is the natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion and behaviour through space and time, along with related concepts such as energy and force.

Physics is the study of the laws of nature.

Physics principles are at the foundation of all natural and applied sciences



  •  Produce research which has significant international impact, maximising our opportunities and resources.
  • Deliver teaching programmes of exceptional quality, recognising the research themes within the Department.
