Department of Physics

Physics is the study of nature at its most fundamental level. As such, it is the science upon which all other sciences and technologies are based. Because it is so basic, a major in physics is ideal preparation, not only for further study in physics, but also for advanced study in such diverse fields as biophysics, medicine, astrophysics, chemical physics, engineering, meteorology, and computer science.

UPCOMING CONFERENCE:  The upcoming CCUWiP (Canadian Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics) will be taking place at the University of Ottawa from January 17-19, 2019. This national conference, attended by physics students and professionals from across the country, is a unique opportunity for students to learn about future opportunities and projects, and to network to help their careers and ultimately innovate to serve and help the community.  Please see attached poster.  ccuwip2019-poster-compressed.pdf
