Physics is the universal bedrock of science and Engineering. It has wide application in all spheres of life. Itâ€™s applicability to the military cannot be mitigated. Some of the core courses that are directly related to the military include inter alias.
(a) Nuclear/Radiation Physics: - Useful for both peaceful purpose and modern way of warfare.
(b) Lasers and Masers:- A modern tool for detection and homing
(c) Atmospheric/Astro Physics: - The study of the atmosphere and its composition enhances better performance of the Air force.
(d) Projectiles: - Analyze targeting and Ranging (target acquisition and ranging).
(e) Computational and Numerical Methods: - Ensures indepth knowledge and use of computers and is a vital tool in ICT.
(f) Environmental Science: The simulation of military noise/signals.
(g) Electronics: - Lays emphasis on Electronic warfare and the rule of the game.
(h) Mechanics and Properties of Matter: - For mechanical check up and build up of military vehicles and the strength of materials.
(i) Military Physics: - Discusses fuses, explosives, missiles, mines, space shuttles and different types of bombs. It is a military course.
(j) Marine Physics and Oceanography Deals with the ocean, Submarines and Navigation. It is vital for the Navy.
