PHYS4200 Physics Research Project

Course Coordinator: 

Dr Yvonne Wong (the Undergraduate Director)

Course Description : 

•    A research project allows students to attempt some independent research under the supervision of an academic member of staff, and to gain some experience in writing up the results in a coherent and logical manner.
•    PHYS4200 Physics Research is a 6 UOC course. According to UNSW guidelines, this means that students should be expected to complete approximately 150 hours of work, including time spent working with the academics, reading, and writing their final project report.
•    PHYS4200 is available to students in the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Advanced Science, and dual science degrees, who are taking a major in Physics or Advanced Physics. It is also available to exchange students.
•    It cannot be counted towards the subjects required for a Physics major. It can only count towards the Science electives within a degree.
•    Enrolment in this course is only available to students who have maintained a 70% average in the Physics and Mathematics courses.
•    Students can only undertake one PHYS4200 project within their degree. Advanced science students can also take research projects through SCIF2041 and SCIF3041.
•    Project is assessed by a literature review, seminar, and final report. Their laboratory performance will also contribute to the final grade.
•    A list of research projects will shortly be available here. Students must nominate 3 projects by the advertised date.
•    The School reserves the right to vary the conditions of entry in individual cases
