Course Description

Physical phenomena dictate everything around us in our daily lives, and studying them is therefore an incredibly eye-opening and fascinating experience. Having produced the likes of Isaac Newton and Stephen Hawking, there?s no better place to study Physics than at Cambridge. The application of Physics in Engineering provides the opportunity to look at how basic physical forces help to produce incredibly complex structures such as bridges, towers and machines.The Reach Cambridge Physics & Engineering course introduces students to University level study in both disciplines independently, as well as exploring the many links and interactions between the two subjects.Students will examine both the theoretical principles and the practical applications of Physics by covering topics such as special relativity, electromagnetism, particle physics and nuclear physics. There will be a focus on problem-solving, exploring theoretical models and developing the skills necessary for advanced studies. The Engineering component of the course mixes interactive lectures with hands-on, practical sessions, such as bridge design challenges and tower construction tasks. Topics to be covered include structural engineering, materials, sustainability and water-structure interaction.Whether a budding civil engineer or an eager physicist, students will benefit enormously from the Reach Cambridge Physics & Engineering course.
