Degree

Civil Engineering

A civil engineering degree prepares students to design, construct and maintain the infrastructure that supports modern society such as buildings and bridges, to dams, power stations, and motorways. Students will learn about how to manage construction projects from start to finish, including site preparation, excavation and building erection. Technical knowledge of key areas in civil engineering, such as fluid mechanics, materials and geotechnics will also be studied.

Degree

Antropology

Anthropology examines the variety of ways in which human beings live in the world. There are two types taught in this course. Social anthropology looks at how people live in the contemporary world, observing what people there do, how they think and how they relate to each other. This helps explain a culture on its own terms and the historical, political, economic and ecological factors that have shaped it.Biological anthropology investigates how humans evolved to have such a diversity of cultures. It compares human social behaviour with other primates and analyses archaeological and fossil records to see how human life emerged.

Physics and Astronomy

Physics and Astronomy degrees focus on the relationship between the physical laws of the universe and how they apply across different scales of space and time. Cosmology is the study of the origin, evolution and eventual fate of the universe. Astrophysics is concerned with the stars that fill it, and space science is the study of our local planetary neighbourhood. Physics focus on the atomic and subatomic domains to probe the physics of matter at its constituent level.
