“I think nature's imagination is so much greater than man's, she's never going to let us relax” said Nobel Prize willing physicist Richard Feynman. Through our programme, our students take a significant step in acquiring knowledge of nature and of how the universe behaves. Students would be able to draw links between physics, mathematics and the other sciences, which enable them to relate to advances in scientific research and design solutions while utilising new technologies. They will build a strong foundation for their pursuit of a career in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
Students will be encouraged to think more broadly about the physical world through the exposure to a rich learning experiences, both within and beyond the college grounds. We aim to deliver a teaching and learning programme that inculcates problem solving skills in every student, to be able to evaluate real-world problems and generate plausible solutions. Our teachers regularly engage in in-depth discussions with the students, to develop their cognitive ability and to nurture an appreciation and love for the subject.
Our students benefit from a variety of enrichment programmes that are offered by the many partnerships that the Physics department has established over the years. Students take part in competitions, overseas experiential programmes and hands-on workshops and seminars, which deepen their interest and knowledge for the subject, and provides opportunities for their learning at an advanced level. Hands-on learning experiences gained through sessions such as SUTD’s Women in Tech and Rocket Building Workshops, have challenged our students to come up with more creative ideas to meet the needs and improve lives in our fast-changing world.
