Physics is one of the most fundamental sciences, building upon the tradition of thousands of years of human inquiry based on observation, mathematical reasoning, and sense of inventiveness. Through semiconductors, optics and electronics, it has transformed the way we communicate and share information and ideas in this interconnected planet and through a probing of the properties of matter and energy, it has advanced our mastery of our natural world and helped us use these resources for satiating our never-ending needs in energy, health, education, food and agriculture, and astronomical exploration.
The Physics Department at LUMS’s SSE has an outstanding teaching and research environment where our students can relish this relentless quest for appreciation of our material surroundings and assist in our goal of enhancing the country’s and region’s intellectual, economic and material capital.
We offer an undergraduate programme in physics, with students opting for a wide variety of courses in basic and applied physics. The thrust is inter-disciplinary, the focus is on strong mathematical and physical basics as well as a keen appreciation of applications. Through a rigorous curriculum taught by an exciting group of people, hailing from diverse training in particle physics, string theory, spintronics, optics and condensed matter physics, and supported by modern, state-of-the-art experimental facilities, we surely promise to enrich our students’ learning experience.
