BS Physics Post ADP/BSc

Program Introduction

Physics is the study of nature at its most fundamental level to discover and apply the general laws that govern force and motion, matter and energy, space and time. It addresses questions and complications on the frontiers of human knowledge from the smallest to the largest scale. The answers to these questions and complications have the potential to overpoweringly change understanding of the world. The intellectual component resides in the innate desire to understand the physical characteristics of the universe.

Physics can be as concrete as the stresses in a bridge or as abstract as the curved space-time near a black hole. It lies at the heart of the natural sciences. Almost any piece of modern scientific instrumentation is based on principles of optics, electronics, or nuclear physics and such apparatus usually has its origins in basic work done by physicists.

The School of Science at UMT offers a four-year BS Physics degree program. The program is designed according to the scheme of studies approved by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan to meet the national and international standards. It covers all aspects of physics ranging from its foundations to modern research. The offered courses have the flexible curricular that is capable of preparing students for advance studies in Physics as well as careers in teaching and research institutes. The Department encourages the students to participate in the research projects and provide them with possible facilities and guidance. In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in the activities of different university societies, attend departmental seminars, and contribute to the departmental governance. The reasoning, mathematical, experimental and computer skills obtained during this program will enable graduates to seek careers in Nuclear Science, Education, Research and Development, Software Development, Nanotechnology, Instrumentation, etc.
