Introduction and Overview
The Department of Physics at Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering and Information Technology is privileged to have highly enriched faculty. All the faculty members are PhDs with more than half having international qualification and experience. Faculty has extended research output in the field of condensed matter physics, plasma physics, thin films, nanoscience, theoretical physics and optical physics etc. Several projects are being carried out by faculty members. The department has well-equipped laboratories, advanced learning facilities, technology equipped class rooms and lecture theatres. The courses being offered by the Department of Physics constitute an integrated series of basic and advanced physics topics in different fields of physics. Students are encouraged and motivated to take part in co-curricular and extracurricular activities like industrial tours, science exhibitions, sports gala etc. Graduates, who will spend their formative years here, will go onto make extra ordinary contributions to science as researchers, teachers and intellectual leaders.
Vision & Mission
To become the center of excellence by providing high quality education through rigorous course work, cutting-edge interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary research and collaboration with industry.
The department seeks to deliver the best scientific methods in teaching the principles of physics theoretically and experimentally, and focuses on maintaining the level of education, scientific research and community service.
Scope and Associated Career
The course study at BS/MSc levels, educates the participants with various aspects of matter, motion, energy, time, and so on. The course offers adequate scope with regard to higher education as well as career. There exist ample master level courses for candidates who are interested in higher education. Apart from this, the candidates can seek
career opportunities in research and development, science, education and other related areas. Higher
education after BS/MSc degree increases the proximity to get in to a high designation job with rewarding compensation packages. All aspects of the physical universe are of interest to the physicist, who seeks to understand not only the smallest forms of matter and the rich phenomena present in our everyday lives but also the universe itself. Physics has played a critical role in human technological and intellectual development during the 20th century. The tools of the physicist-observation, imagination, model building, prediction, and deduction will enable physics to continue this influence into the new century. The Master of Science in Physics degree program is designed to provide the skills, understanding, and outlook required for participation in the discovery of new knowledge about nature.
The Department of Physics has an honor of hiring more than 8 PhD qualified faculty members graduated locally and from various foreign Asian and European universities. The purpose is to deliver excellent education for nascent scientist and engineers. Currently, the Physics department provides a lively intellectual atmosphere to its more than 200 students along with various engineering students, and special attention is given to teaching and training students to be at the forefront of the next generation of physicists
