MASTER OF SCIENCE (APPLIED PHYSICS)
Applied Physics is a field that studies of both classical and modern physics and combines it with topics on most recent applications of these principles. It is the science which has made possible the design and operation of many everyday components including computer chips, lasers, solar collectors, medical equipments, sensors and mobile phones.
The curriculum of the graduate program in Applied Physics consists of core courses and elective courses. The core courses are designed to provide students with the fundamentals of physics and skills in computing, mathematics and instrumentations. The core courses also include the management and evaluation of technology and communications skills. The electives which can be taken from a range of topics are designed so that students can develop their own course of study according to their interests. A research project is required to be undertaken through out the duration to provide the experience of doing independent research under the supervision of school members. The research project focuses on applying physics to scientific and technological problems. The research project starts by conducting extensive literature review, followed by performing experiments and writing a thesis.
This programme is designed to develop professionals with broad capabilities appropriate for careers in technical research or advanced graduate study. It provides valuable graduate training and research project experience sought after by industry, government and R & D organizations.
The interests and expertise of school members include the following areas of specialization: material science, solid-state physics, the physics of thin films devices, the physics of medical radiations and theoretical/ computational physics.
DURATION OF STUDY
Full time: 2 - 4 semester.
Students must take and pass 40 unit throughout the studies (including 8 unit - project and 32 unit - course).
