Organization Profile

Organisation profile

The Physics Department advances basic science and educates students the basic science which allow them to innovate and solve problems in the contemporary world. We achieve this mission by conducting basic, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge research, and educating students with the skills and nurturing them with the environment conducive to such an education. We conduct world-class researches in applied physics and in interdisciplinary science with two focused areas: (1) Advanced Materials, and (2) Biophysics & Complex Systems. Our faculty members publish research findings in top journals including e.g., Science, Nature Physics, Nature Chemistry, Advanced Materials, and PNAS. The Department is extremely effective in translating research findings into patents, inventions and the establishment of start-up companies. Three multi-departmental and interdisciplinary institutes and research centres are being led by Physics colleagues. These include: Institute of Advanced Materials (IAM), Institute for Computational and Theoretical Studies (ICTS), and Research Centre of Excellence for Organic Electronics.

In teaching, the Department offers a 4-year BSc (Hons) programme in Physics and Green Energy, with 2 concentrations: Applied Physics and Energy Technology and Management Concentrations. In the taught Master programme, we offer a 1-year MSc programme in Green Technology (Energy). There are close interactions between teachers and students throughout classroom, labs, and independent projects. Both BSc and MSc programmes offer foundational and practical trainings for tackling the global energy concerns. Graduates can secure jobs in the energy, environmental, education, and government sectors. Our research programme is vibrant and trains highly competitive graduates who succeed in science, technology and broad disciplines requiring quantitative and analytic skills.
