It is considered the fundamental science, which deals with the constituents, properties and evolution of the entire universe, from the smallest subatomic particles to the largest galaxies, and is concerned with the mathematical formulation of the fundamental laws of nature.

The School of Science (SSC) at UMT is offering a PhD degree in Physics. This degree program equips, teaches and trains the scholars to meet the growing technological needs of the industries of Pakistan in the area of Physics and provide sufficient opportunity for skill acquisition in the use of experimental, workshop and investigative tools of pure and applied physics.

The PhD Physics program is sufficiently flexible in its electives to provide an excellent preparation for careers in many different areas of pure and applied physics. Additionally, the scholars are mainly engaged in research along with initial broad training in fundamental core topics of physics as the foundation of modern technologies.

Career opportunities in physics include areas of basic research, applied research and development. Moreover, PhD in Physics can be an excellent for careers in many related fields like radiology, medicine, business, environmental science, and other areas of science. There are hundreds of companies and industries which are active in the areas of semiconductor devices, electronic equipment’s, nanomaterial and laser­, all key areas that are covered by PhD degree. Taking the degree will immediately open up access to jobs in many multinational companies which need highly skilled staff with a physics background.
