About Technical Physics and Mathematics
Physics is a basic field of knowledge dealing with the properties of matter, the phenomena occurring in the matter and finding out the laws governing those phenomena.
Physics is the foundation on which the whole contemporary technology is based. At the same time the tools and techniques which are the product of the engineers' thoughts are frequently used in physics.
Studies in Technical Physics may be a good platform for combining physics and technology.
Having mastered the basics of physics and having received good mathematical, IT and technical background, a Technical Physics graduate is excellently prepared to work in many sectors of economy and research centres.
In addition to attractive abstractness, mathematics finds various applications - particularly in exact and technical sciences and in economy. Mathematics is a universal language allowing to write precisely the laws governing the surrounding reality and it is a tool to develop a number of state-of-the-art methods and theories to cater for the specific nature of the investigated phenomena. Such methods denoted by the common name - Applied Mathematics, in particular, make it possible to:
- describe complex phenomena in economic, sociological, biological and other sciences;
- conduct a computer simulation of processes related to management, finance, social phenomena as well as scientific research in physics, chemistry, biology, astrophysics and other sciences;
- model and test new techniques and technologies, e.g. in nanotechnology, genetic engineering, issues related to storage and disposal of waste.
Studies in Applied Mathematics at the Gdańsk University of Technology create a perfect opportunity for educating an engineer mathematician- a specialist finding a common language with an engineer, creator of the state-of-the-art technology, or a specialist in the field of economy and management.
Studies at our Faculty make it possible to develop interests in physics and mathematics at the same time directing students interests to technology and its implementation.
