About MSci Physics with Innovation

The innovators of the 21st century will bring together arts, science, engineering, humanities and enterprise to deliver innovative products, services and ways of living. They will be team players with a breadth of skills and qualities that enable them to work across specialisms and cultures.

This course combines in-depth subject specialism in physics with interdisciplinary breadth, creative teamwork and entrepreneurial skills. Alongside your physics studies, you will apply your subject knowledge by translating ideas into plans for digital and creative enterprises, both social and commercial.

The course will equip you to use the critical, theoretical and practical skills central to physics, allowing you to develop knowledge and skills across a range of areas as you proceed through the course. You will learn about the fundamental building blocks and forces of nature and how quantum physics and relativity enable us to understand the world around us - from the infinitesimal scale of particle and nuclear physics, to the microscopic level of atoms and molecules. This is a new programme and has yet to be accredited by the Institute of Physics.

You will come together with students from other innovation disciplines, such as computer science and psychology, to learn and apply design and systems thinking to digital and creative ideas. You will work in transdisciplinary teams to put these ideas into practice, ultimately creating new ventures together.
