Overview

Physics has always remained and still is at the center of science and technology. The laws of physics that are reached through observations and careful experimentation find applications from the subatomic particles to astronomic formations such as stars and galaxies. On the other hand, the design of advanced technology materials, fabrication of semiconductor devices, the development of optical communication systems have all evolved as applications of physics.

Our department has both theoretical and experimental research activities. Quantum information theory, gravitation, and condensed matter physics are among our theoretical research interests. On the experimental research side, we have three advanced laboratories where we focus on solid-state lasers, optoelectronic, and nano-photonic materials and devices.

Our Ph.D. program aims at teaching fundamental physics at a high level and coupling this knowledge with a research experience in either theoretical or applied physics depending on the interests of the student.

Programme structure

The Ph.D. degree requires successful completion of 14 courses within 3 years and take the Qualifying Examination within the 7th semester at the latest beyond the B.S. degree and 7 courses within 2 years and take the Qualifying Examination within the 5th semester at the latest beyond the M.S. degree.

In addition to the credit courses, students must complete the non-credit courses; PHYS 590 Seminar, ENGL 500 Graduate Writing, and TEAC 500 Teaching Experience.
