From the Physics course you will have a fundamental understanding of physics, which can allow for further studies into engineering, environmental management and health sciences.

The physics in this course are mainly concerned with explaining physical phenomena and being able to create predictive mathematical models or theories to explain why things occur as they do and to then predict future results in a reliable manner.
