The progression of modern technology is largely based on fundamental physics research and
instrumentation development. Innovation in all areas of science, engineering, measurement and
technology relies on the development of new instrumentation and measurement techniques. The aims
of these programmes are to satisfy those who have an interest in fundamental science and present
them with opportunities to find rewarding careers. Throughout the programmes, there is an emphasis on
practical work and projects. Projects are often based on individual students’ interests and have included:
medical instrumentation development, remote measurements using drones, building electronic musical
equipment, investigating solar cells and many more.
