It all began with Physics, from the creation of our universe, to the creation of the world wide web. Physics is an exciting intellectual adventure that inspires us to understand a world of black holes in space, and electrical impulses in the brain. Physics contributes to the technological infrastructure of today and generates the fundamental knowledge needed for future scientific advances. As such, Physics is an important element in the education of Chemists, Engineers and Computer Scientists, as well as practitioners of the other Physical and Biomedical Sciences.
