As a Physics with Space Science student, one will acquire an appreciation of the scope and impact of modern physics and the use of mathematics, computing and experimentation to solve important real world problems, and develop specialised knowledge of space science. Leicester's Physics students study the same core of fundamental physics and maths, based on Institute of Physics (IOP) 'core of physics' material. This includes classical mechanics, waves and fields, electromagnetism, special relativity, thermodynamics, quantum and atomic physics. Students of this course will study these alongside specialist space science options and take part in research projects covering the major areas of space science research. Leicester has one of the largest campus-based space research centres in Europe, and the space science and technology options that students will study are based on the research we do. This includes a strong involvement in the BepiColombo mission to Mercury and detector design and development for satellites like the joint US-UK-Italian ‘Swift’, a remarkable observatory designed to study the most powerful explosions in the Universe. The four-year MPhys degrees are aimed at students considering a career or further training in scientific research
