Physics is one of the most fundamental natural sciences. It involves the study of universal laws, and of the relationships among a wide range of physical phenomena. With a solid foundation in Physics, students should be able to appreciate both the intrinsic beauty and quantitative nature of physical phenomena, and the role of Physics in many important developments in engineering, medicine, economics and other fields of science and technology.
