PhysSoc has been at the heart of the Department of Physics & Astronomy for a long time, the Schuster Building. From the discovery of the atomic nucleus by Rutherford in 1911 to pioneering the discovery of graphene, Novoselov and Geim, in 2010, there are 13 Nobel Prize winners linked to the Department. Recently, the Physics and Astronomy department has ranked in the top 15 positions of the Global Ranking of Academic Subjects in Physics (Shanghai Ranking) since it was created in 2017. We pride ourselves on being part of this community, with a rich history and promising future.
