This subject contains a 3 day Compulsory Residential School.
The residential school will provide an opportunity to complete a practical component of the subject which is an essential part of physics studies as it develops skills in simple experimental design, use of experimental equipment, equipment setup (e.g. calibrating equipment, equipment installation, etc.) data acquisition, data analysis and communication of results. This exposure to the experimental side of modern physics will further extend understandings in both the experimental and theoretical nature of modern physics studies.
