Physics Programme

Physics is a field of science that studies the properties, motion, behaviour, force and energy of matter. Physics uncovers the hidden laws that govern and explain the orderliness of the universe, from the behaviour of particles to the life cycle of stars scattered in our night sky. By studying Physics, the students will be competent and skilled in putting to use knowledge of physics in a scientific and professional manner commensurate with the demand of development in contemporary time.

The Physics Programme evolved from the former Physics Department, when the faculty was then called the Faculty of Science (FS). The Physics Department was one of the earliest departments established, together with the establishment of UKM itself in Mei 1970. In 1983, the department was then under the Faculty of Applied Physics (FSFG). In the year 1999, FSFG together with three other faculties merged to form a single faculty, namely the Faculty of Science and Technology (FST). Now, under the new restructuring of FST, the Physics Program is one of the three Programs in the Department of Applied Physics (JFG).
