    Course details

    Summary

    Massey’s physics programme gives you the skills that most employers seek. You will develop well-developed abilities to ‘think outside the box’, to rapidly acquire new knowledge and skills, to communicate effectively with others and be numerate and analytic. Physicists try to understand our physical environment with the smallest set of ideas that will provide that understanding.

    Understand the world and how it works

    There is a continuing evolution of physics theory, based on tried and tested ideas from more than 400 years of continuous development. To understand today's interesting and challenging ideas, you must first understand yesterday's great ideas. The Bachelor of Science (Physics) will enable you to do that with a mixture of theoretical and practical study. You will also be able to focus on either experimental physics or theoretical physics.

    The ideas of physics and their interactions are most naturally expressed in mathematical form. Studying physics also requires that you study mathematics and many students complete a double major in mathematics and physics. Physics also has many applications throughout the other sciences, such as chemistry and biology.

    Strength in biophysics

    Massey University’s strength and reputation across the life sciences feeds into our physics major. We consider DNA as a physical object and examine how cells apply force and movement to DNA. You’ll get to use NMR imaging (MRI), optical tweezers and laser beams to extract single strands of DNA. You’ll solve biological problems from a mechanical point of view. We also have strengths in mathematics and particle physics for those interested in more traditional physics studies.

    Topics:

    Some topics taught in physics courses include:

    • Quantum physics
    • Physics of waves and vibrations
    • Classical mechanics, chaos and
    • fluids
    • Analogue electronics
    • Digital electronics and
    • communications
    • Advanced experimental physics
    • Thermal physics
    • Applied electromagnetism
    • Microelectronic circuits

    Careers

    People who major in physics have a driven curiosity about the world around them and how it works and this is an attribute highly valued by employers. The skills you will get during your study for a physics degree are in high demand: analytical ability, numeracy, computational skills and an ability to write organised, coherent reports.

    As a physics graduates you can find employment in a wide range of occupations, not all of them directly using physics knowledge. One Massey University physics graduate is CEO of a major infrastructure company. Another runs a chemical company. Many have built excellent careers based on their computational skills. Others find their knowledge of modern electronics helpful.

    In the world of physics, your Bachelor of Science qualification will enable you to seek employment at research technician level in the Crown and other Research Institutes, MetService, hospital laboratories and in industry. You could explore a career as an officer in New Zealand’s defense forces. There are Massey University physics graduates working in all of these areas.

    As there is a continuing shortage of qualified physics teachers, secondary school teaching will always be open to you after graduating with your Bachelor of Science and adding a further year to achieve a Graduate Diploma in Teaching.

    If you want to pursue a career as a professional physicist, you will have to undertake more study. Usually, this means a fourth year of formal course work to obtain a BSc(Hons) in physics followed by three to four years working on PhD research that culminates in the presentation of a thesis.

    Entry criteria

    Students must have successful completion of a qualification equivalent to the New Zealand Year 13 - NCEA Level 3 University Entrance.

    It is strongly recommended (but not compulsory) that students beginning their study of physics should have a sound background in physics and calculus (mathematics with calculus) at NCEA Level 3 (or equivalent). However, once students enrol in the compulsory first year mathematics course 160.111, they must have obtained 16 credits in NCEA Level 3 Calculus (Mathematics with Calculus) or 24 credits in NCEA Level 3 Mathematics or an acceptable alternative.

    English Language Requirements:

    • IELTS score of 6.0 (no band less than 5.5)
    • TOEFL iBT score of 80 overall (min 19 in Writing)
    • PTE Academic score of 50 Overall (min 42 in communicative skills)
    • Cambridge English score of 170
