About this course

The Division of Physics & Applied Physics (PAP) offers both Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Physics and Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Physics programmes. Both are four-year direct honours programmes for undergraduates interested in majoring in Physics or Applied Physics at NTU.

The curriculum is tailored to provide students with a good working knowledge of fundamental physics and cultivate the application of the knowledge to a wide range of technologies. The students will also understand the limits of accuracy and sensitivity of scientific measurements so as to derive meaningful values in real life applications.
