Physics & Electronics
To be a physics education centre of excellence, serves to promote and disseminate knowledge and meet the personal development agenda and national socio-economic development.
The goal of the Physics Department is to become an organization that is proactive in expanding and developing knowledge through teaching as well as basic and applied research.
The Physics Department aims to produce graduates who are competent in the disciplines of physics, competitive, innovative, ethical and able to provide expert services to the country and internationally.
1. To become a center of excellence and source of reference for physics.
2. Produce high quality graduates in the fields of physics and develop a force of excellent scholarship continuously.
3. To establish an education management system and the physics research that is efficient, innovative and committed.
4. To establish and enhance the professionalism of physicists in order to contribute towards national development and wellbeing of the people.
5. To strengthen relations and cooperative links with research and education institutions, and industries related to the fields of physics within and outside the country.
6. Explore new areas in physics research.
Physics is the most fundamental of sciences. At its most basic, it is about explaining and predicting what happens in the physical universe. This covers topics so vast they don’t get much bigger, such as how the universe has evolved into its present state, to topics of daily importance. Physicists want to know how things work. If you have an enquiring mind, enjoy a bit of innovative thought, can think logically, aren’t afraid of some hard work and like to know what’s going on around you in nature, in science and in technology, then a physics degree could well suit you.
In recent years, electronics, the world over, has made unprecedented growth in terms of new technologies, new ideas and principles. The rate of obsolescence of technologies also has been extremely high. Researchers, academicians, industries and the society at large have to work in unison to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing discipline. The research organizations and industries that work in this frontier area are in need of highly skilled and scientifically oriented manpower.
Physics & Electronics graduates go forth into a huge range of jobs. They become involved in meteorology, medical physics, environmental monitoring, astronomy, particle physics, geophysics, materials science, invention, design, teaching and even financial modeling.
