400-Level Papers in PHSI and ELEC

Organization of Papers

Papers are worth ten points each, and have 15 one-hour lectures and 6 one-hour tutorials. Some papers may not be held every year depending on instructor availability and student demand.

PHSI students:  We expect that most Physics BSc Honours or PGDipSc students will take the 40-point project PHSI 490 and 80-points of taught papers. Those papers must include at least six 10-point PHSI (or combined [ELEC,PHSI]) papers. You may select up to 20-points from 400-level MATH papers or ELEC-only papers.

ELEC students: Electronics BSc Honours or PGDipSc students take the ELEC 490 project and 80 points of taught papers. Up to two PHSI-only papers can be used, as well as up to two papers from the MATH 400-level programme.
