School:Brock University
Faculty:Faculty of Mathematics and Science
Degree:Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study:Physics, General
Description:The core of the program is designed to provide an understanding of the principles and fundamental interactions of classical and quantum physics as well as many applications of these principles in technology and everyday life. A Concentration in Applied Optics and Laser Technology is offered with Niagara College to fulfill the demand from the fibre optics and telecommunications industry for graduates with knowledge and technical skills in photonics; opto-electronic devices; and laser, thin-film, and high-vacuum technologies.

The Physics Co-op program combines academic and work terms over a four and one-half year period. Students spend two years in an academic setting, where they acquire the necessary background prior to taking the first work placement. In addition to the current fees for courses in academic study terms, Physics Co-op students are assessed an annual administrative fee (see the Schedule of Fees).
