This programme is aimed at students who are interested in physical phenomena, mathematical connections and philosophical positions, and who wonder how nature and the world in general function.
The day-to-day teaching is based on assignments and projects that train our students to think logically and abstractly. They are faced with real-world problems that must be approached creatively in order to find a useful solution.
Theories of science and natural scientific methods are not merely topics for debate but are tested and applied in experiments.

1 lift and 2 C-level subjects
Astronomy C + elective C + a lift in one subject
Statics and strength of materials C + elective C + a lift in one subject
A lift could be in: technology A, English A, social studies B or chemistry A.
C-level subjects could be: innovation C, material technology C, psychology C, German C, philosophy C, media studies C, music C, sports C, programming C or business economics C.
The different subjects in the study line often shape the content of subjects to revolve around one or more aspects of physics. Here is an example of a mathematics project from the study line:
Project carbon 14
A typical project in mathematics could be age dating using the carbon 14 method. With the knowledge of radioactivity from physics, the radioactive decay can be modelled with a differential equation using mathematics.
This enables our students to calculate the age of an archeological discovery based on the remaining amount of carbon 14. The project takes place in the third year.
