The Physics Department strives to maintain an active research program with an emphasis on both experimental and theoretical studies. The graduate degree programs aim to prepare students for careers in research and teaching at the university level or for research related jobs in industrial or governmental organizations.

  • Demonstrate professional awareness of the complexity and limitations of knowledge, methods, data and interpretations.
  • Apply knowledge of physics and the quantitative and critical skills of a physicist to find, identify, assess, investigate, interpret and solve complex, open-ended problems of a physical science nature.
  • Formulate testable scientific hypotheses, indicating the awareness of the current problems and situated within the body of knowledge of a field of physics or applied physics.
  • Communicate effectively orally and in writing to both a technical and non-technical audience.
  • Develop and undertake a research implementation plan using the appropriate Literature and possibly laboratory and/or computational techniques.

To obtain the Master Degree in Physics, The student has to successfully complete a total of 36 credit hours including 30 credit hours of course work with a CGPA of no less than 2.33 and successfully defend the thesis (6 credit hours) in no less than two years.

Students after being awarded the Masters degree in Physics from the Faculty of Science will be well prepared for careers in research and teaching at the university levels. They also able to competitive for jobs related to industry and government organization.
