Physics is an exciting science subject with the study of the universe from the smallest to the largest scale: it generates fundamental knowledge for technical advancement in future. Discoveries in physics have formed the foundation of countless technological advances and play an important role in many scientific areas. Many techniques used in medical imaging, nanotechnology and quantum computing are derived from physics instrumentation. Even the World Wide Web was a spin-off from the information processing and communications requirements of high-energy particle physics. The contributions of physics to solve global problems such as energy production, environmental protection, global warming and public health are essential and have an enormous impact on our society.
