Physics of Earth and Universe

The Physics of the Earth and Universe Major is designed to provide the rigorous background in Mathematics and Physical Sciences required for a career in theoretical, computational, or experimental scientific research and/or education. During the first two years, all students will take foundation courses in Basic Science and Mathematics, with an emphasis on Physics. They are also exposed to the three concentration options available for advanced study: Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Astrophysics, and High Energy Physics. During the final two years students pursue advanced study within their chosen area of concentration, together with advanced training in Physics. Each concentration includes specialized instruction from Zewail City research center experts in Theoretical Physics and Environmental and Space Sciences. The advanced Mathematical and Computational skills of PEU graduates can be readily transferred to many applications in business and industry, as well as academic and government research.
