Department of Physics
The ultimate aim of Physics is to understand the fundamental nature and interaction of matter and energy in the universe from the elementary constituent particles to the highly complex stellar and galactic systems. At the dawn of the 21st century, physics research has geared itself towards exploration of the whole spectrum of natural and social sciences-from the physics of living cells and viruses to the synthesis of polymers and nanostructures for novel materials, and from the evolution of complex social interactions to the physics of stock markets.
The Department of Physics offers Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics and Master of Science in Physics programs, all supported by highly competent faculty and state-of-the-art facilities. Unlike other physics programs within the region, our programs put a strong emphasis on research to address questions arising from the most recent developments and a clear-cut focus on applications that cater to the needs of the local industry. The Department aims to produce exceptional physicists ready to contribute towards expanding the frontiers of science in a fast-changing world.
