Our distinctive MPhys Physics with Space Science will build upon the MPhys Physics programme and give you a greater breadth and depth of study of a diverse range of topics in remote sensing and space engineering. Remote sensing of the Earth from satellite-borne instruments is particularly important in studies of global warming and environmental protection.
You will have the opportunity to study specialist topics at an advanced level and to acquire key generic and research scientific skills.
Key areas of study include:
- space plasma
