Course contentToday, there is a tendancy towards furthering an education in physics with postgraduate studies regardless of whether a career in industry or research is persued. Many Physics graduates traditionally enter careers in Applied Physics and Engineering, especially Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The Department of Physics in UCC provides opportunities for achieving higher degrees either by research or coursework. The Postgraduate Diploma and the MSc in Applied Physics are intended to provide a high technical knowledge of physics for industrial applications.
Fees and fundingThis programme receives funding from the Government under a major initiative to meet IT skills needs identified by the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs, therefore EU Students admitted to this programme in 2009/2010 will pay a reduced annual tuition fee of 2,000 euros.
