The relevance of advanced Physics education and research to businesses and industries has never been greater. From energy production to communications and computing, industries rely heavily on modern Physics research to remain competitive.

A Ph.D. in Physics from a reputable programme provides a comprehensive education in the field while providing the opportunity to contribute to the field through their own research.

The three-year Ph.D. in Physics programme offered by the Department of Applied Science & Humanities contains a core of General Physics including Mathematical Physics, Classical Mechanics, and Quantum Mechanics. This core is then built upon with more in-depth courses in topics of special interest such as Electrodynamics, Nuclear Physics, Solid State Physics, Electronics and more. To complete the programme, students must complete dissertation research in their specialty field and defend it before a committee of faculty members.

The benefits of a Ph.D. in Physics go beyond the knowledge and skills gained. The research experience and dissertation work provide students with the opportunity to work closely with experts in the field and gain valuable experience. Also, a Ph.D. in Physics opens doors to a variety of career options, including teaching, research, industry, and consulting.
