Unit Code: PHY704

Unit Title: Special Topics in Physics

PHY704 is a special topics unit that covers various applications in Physics that are relevant for engineering & industrial applications and scientific research. It covers all the major elements of a measurement and control system including transducers, signal conditioning, data acquisition, signal manipulation and programming. Depending on the expert areas of the physics lecturers that will be supervising students in their research projects, students may select areas under the following topics:

  • Electronics (analogue and digital)

  • Renewable energy (solar, wind, hydro, biomass etc.)

  • Thermodynamics

  • Fluid Mechanics

Therefore, PHY704 provides opportunities for students who are majoring in Physics to study specialized physics topics of their interests and carry out a practical project in the specialized area.
