The boundaries between Engineers, Physicists, Mathematicians and Computer Scientists are becoming ever more indistinguishable. We are at the brink of the 4th Industrial Revolution and entering an age of intelligent machines. It is predicted that by 2025 one third of jobs will be replaced by robots. One source claims that 65% of students entering primary education will be working in jobs that don’t yet exist! The landscape of work is undergoing a radical transformation and students need to be fireproofed against the rate of technical change. At the same time the U.K.

Newton’s Laws can explain many of our everyday experiences and are fundamental to our understanding of the physical world. While textbooks simply state what they are, many students find them difficult to apply and work with in practice. This is because common sense ideas that we develop from experience with motion can lead us astray. Students attending this course will come away with a deepened understanding of the physical world. Combining explanations with hands-on experimentation, these courses combine fun and learning in a unique and dynamic fashion.
Circuits may be found all around us and are fundamental to the devices we use every day. In this course, students are introduced to the basic physics behind circuits through experimentation. They are introduced to key components of circuits and their application, helping them understand how to design circuits for a specific purpose. MATLAB and Arduino are essential tools for much of the practical work on the course.
Quantum Physics is a subject often thought of as being too abstract and having little to do with our everyday lives. All too often popular science journalism and the media focus on the weirder and more outlandish aspects of this branch of physics. Our course will show you how we rely on Quantum Physics every day through our use of a whole range of technological devices and processes. While there are many difficult aspects to the subject, our course is concerned with a basic understanding of concepts and emphasises the practical applications.
