On completion of the year/programme students should have provided evidence of being able to:- demonstrate a basic knowledge and understanding of common physical laws and principles, and some applications of these principles;- identify relevant principles and laws when dealing with problems;- manipulate numerical and other quantitative information, and apply manipulative skills to the solution of problems;- apply a variety of rigorously-based mathematical skills to the theoretical understanding of physical phenomena;- communicate in writing or orally the results of their work or other scientific information.
Transferable (key) skills
Students will have had the opportunity to acquire, as defined in the modules specified for the programme:- qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment related to physics and mathematics;- skills necessary for the exercising of personal responsibility;- decision making.
Achievement will be assessed by a variety of methods in accordance with the learning outcomes of the modules specified for the year/programme and will include:- demonstrating the ability to apply a broad range of knowledge and manipulative skills in physics and mathematics to complex, albeit standard, situations and simple, albeit novel or atypical, instances;- work that is often descriptive in nature but drawing on a wide variety of material;- demonstrating basic professional competencies relevant to physics and mathematics.
