BSc Industrial Physics - CK409 **NEW 2017**

BSc Industrial Physics - CK409 (Joint Degree UCC/CIT)


September 2017 sees the launch of a new Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Physics (CAO code CK409). 

The degree in Industrial Physics has been developed to meet the rapidly changing demands of a our modern economy and society where highly skilled and adaptable graduates with a strong grounding in fundamental scientific concepts are equipped with industrially-focussed training and expertise. This joint program between the Department of Physics at UCC and the Department of Physical Sciences CIT, offers students a unique training and educational experience based at both of these internationally regarded institutes.  


Program Content

Students will discover the exciting aspects of fundamental physics including nanotechnology, photonics and quantum electronics that forms the basis of todays state of the art and emerging technologies in addition to experiencing the modern industrial environment through applied training in subjects such as instrumentation, automation and process control. 

Work Placement and Research Project

The program includes a third year placement of minimum 10 weeks at one of our industrial partners sites and a final year research phase at either of the joint departments or associated research centres, the Tyndall National Institute and the Centre for Applied Photonics and Process Analysis (CAPPA).
