| A year of study is 60 credits. First year - Mathematical Physics
- Mathematics
- Choose 2 other Science subjects - Biology or *Engineering Science, Chemistry, Computer Science [15 or 30 credits], Experimental Physics). Mathematical Physics cannot be taken with Chemistry in third or fourth year. *Engineering Science cannot be taken with Biology. Students taking Engineering Science must also take Computer Science. Students may take Computer Science and not take Engineering Science.
Second year - Mathematical Physics
- Choose 2 of your first year subjects
- Optional 10 credit Critical Skills or Electives in second year
Third year - Mathematical Physics
- Choose 1 of your second year subjects
Fourth year - Mathematical Physics may be taken as a Single Major or as a Double Major with the other subject taken in third year
Duration: 4 years Disclaimer The modules below are indicative of the content associated with this course of study. The modules are subject to change as the curriculum is revised and reviewed annually. Please check periodically for updates. | Year 1 | | Mathematical physics, or theoretical physics, is the study of the fundamental laws of nature that govern our existence; from the interactions of quarks and gluons through the properties of metals and the aerodynamics of flight, to the evolution of stars and galaxies. - Many of the technologies we now take for granted have their origins in fundamental physics research, including PET scanners, lasers, Wi-Fi and the world wide web.
- Mathematical methods developed in mathematical physics have found their way to a wide range of applications, from financial markets and computer science to genetics and brain studies.
- The study of Mathematical Physics at Maynooth University has a long and distinguished tradition, of over 200 years. Modern theoretical physics and applied mathematics are exciting and dynamic and that excitement is reflected in the research projects which are pursued in the Department.
- As well as being introduced to the major ideas and developments in theoretical physics and applied mathematics, you will be equipped with the tools to meet current and future developments in science, engineering, finance and other technologies of the future.
- If students achieve at least 70% in both subjects and an 80% average across both Mathematical Physics and Mathematics in first year, they may choose to specialise in Mathematical Physics and Pure Mathematics from second year, following the course structure of MH206 Theoretical Physics and Mathematics.
- 15 credit option only in 1st year.
- Only one of these can be taken as a double subject since the extra 15 credits for each are taught at the same time: Anthropology, Computer Science, German (beginner), History, International Development, Law, Sociology, Spanish (beginner).
