Everything we know is either matter or energy. Understanding the ways in which matter and energy behave and interact is critical to an understanding of the universe at every level, from the submicroscopic constituents of matter to the macroscopic behaviour of galaxies and star clusters. This understanding comes through a mix of mathematical description, computational modelling and experimental investigations.
These techniques are covered in the Chemical & Physical Sciences Gateway, which is the appropriate preparation for Level 2 programs in Astrophysics, Biophysics, Chemistry, Chemical Biology, Medical and Biological Physics, and Physics.
