Study Physics in Ireland

Trinity College Dublin Ireland

 

Trinity College, one of Europe's oldest and most respected universities, lies at the very heart of Ireland's capital city. Its historic buildings represent a famous tradition in both arts and science. Modern laboratories and research facilities now offer an inspiring environment for the study of physics, in a department that excels by international standards.

 

The FitzGerald Building, completed in 1906, still houses part of the Physics department.

 

Various undergraduate courses are offered in which physics is a major component. Each of these is a four year course, leading to an honours degree which is officially recognised by the Institute of Physics (the professional body for physics in the UK and Ireland.)
Theoretical Physics combines physics and mathematics in a demanding but rewarding programme, whose graduates are in strong demand by graduate schools in the US and elsewhere.
The main Physics Degree provides a good grounding in classical and modern physics, and includes an extensive research project in the final year. There is an Astrophysics option in the final two years.
Other courses are the degrees in Computational Physics and Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials.

Undergraduates enjoy a close relationship with staff of the Department. There are ample facilities for study, and students run their own Physical Society.

Graduate students are recruited from all over the world, and contribute to strong research programmes in materials science, nanotechnology, astronomy, information and communications technology, and computational physics. Together with our highly distinguished academic staff (three Fellows of the Royal Society), a large international community of postdoctoral fellows and our strong technical support staff, they form a lively intellectual community.

Choose to study physics at Trinity, and enjoy life and learning in the university which has educated many great physicists in the past - Hamilton famous for quaternions and for his formulation of Newton's mechanics, FitzGerald of the FitzgGerald-Lorentz contraction in Relativity theory, Walton who with Cockcroft 'split the atom', and many others. Trinity published what is claimed to be the first physics textbook for undergraduates (in 1739) but  is 'bang up-to-date'  with the  latest exciting developments in  the subject, and is networked into European research throughout the continent.
