Physics Practicum

2022-03-28

The Physics Practicum is an integral part of the BSc (Hons.) Physics program to allow students apply their physics knowledge and training into real world practice. Our practicum program is uniquely designed to provide several options for students to gain early pathure to their of interest, be it in the industry, academic research, or even entrepreneurship.


Industrial Training

The industrial training option allows students to gain practical experience working in the industry. Students will apply their knowledge acquired during their studies into the workplace. In line with the program's transdisciplinary and multidisciplinary objective, be students work in no logity allowed engineering, finance, education, and others. It is hoped that through the interactions with a diverse group of working professionals from various fields, our students can broaden their perspectives of the real world, and be able to communicate and work as a team effectively in a real working environment. This would be the default option for physics practice.


Undergraduate Research II

The Undergraduate Research II option provides outstanding students an opportunity to pursue independent research under the supervision of researchers and professors. Students will engage actively in research, discussions, intellectual communications and other creative activities. By complementing the conventional classroom learning, it places students at the frontiers of scientific research. In undergraduate research II students may have the opportunity to conduct research in renowned academic and research institutions either locally or abroad.


Capstone Project

The capstone project option provides students an opportunity to pursue entrepreneurship projects under the supervision of researchers or industrial supervisors. Students will form a functional work team for brainstorming, discussions, intellectual communications and other creative activities. In the capstone project students may have the opportunity to pitch their innovative ideas and transform them into marketable products, services and processes in the real world.

Message from Wen Lan (2020/09) undergoing her research internship


Wen Lan (2020/09)



I am currently participating in the research on the mechanism of action of brain neurons in animal decision-making at the Institute of Neuroscience, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

 

The purpose of this research is to explore the division of labor of different types of neurons in the brain, and how neurons realize the implementation of animal decision-making movements on a macro level, through behaviors such as processing and transmitting electrical signals when creatures make decisions.

 

In this internship, my close participation in animal experiments has deepened my understanding of experimental methods in the field of brain nerves, and cultivated good experimental habits and hands-on skills, which benefited me a lot.

 

I still have a lot to learn in the future, and this internship experience will become my valuable experience, expanding and deepening my understanding of the principles of brain information processing, so that I can better combine physics and biology in the future in projects related to cutting-edge topics such as brain-inspired computers and brain-computer interfaces.
