CareerLink | Department of Physics & Astronomy | Expectations for Incoming Students | V4
Incoming students are going to learn, of course,
the fundamentals of the way the physical world works: classical mechanics, quantum mechanics,
statistical mechanics. It goes beyond that, too, in terms of things
like critical thinking, numerical analysis, advanced mathematics, and computing: tools
that you basically need to go out into the real world and start doing your own research,
making your own discoveries and advances.
