Understand the world, ourselves and the universe in which we live
Physics helps us understand the world, ourselves and the universe in which we live.
Physicists have a very solid knowledge of the physical universe and use this knowledge to explore new ideas that will advance humanity.
Their skills can also help us better understand and predict the behaviour of complex systems.
