PHYSICS

Understanding the world around us

Physics is the basis for all sciences, not only because it allows us to understand matter, interactions and radiation, which are the basis for all other sciences, but above all because it has constantly contributed to the development of the scientific method, based on experiments, formalising results, and prediction.

Further, research in Physics has often led to the development of new technologies, which have revolutionized our daily lives: computers, the World Wide Web, medical imaging, microscopy, energy production, compact discs, etc...

The curriculum organized by the Physics Department allows men and women to not only understand nature through rigorous observation and the invention of experiments and theories, but also to develop a creative and critical spirit.
