The Program of Applied Physics covers research fields related to both physics as a fundamental science and engineering dealing with an application of the results of physics. The research groups concerned with optics, optoelectronics, instrumentation physics, nanotechnology, optical and electronic device technology, magnetics, quantum beam and plasma physics are working with organized collaboration and taking parts of the basis of modem technologies. The Program yields researchers who engage in development of applied physics with the knowledge and method of physics.

Requirement for the Degree Program

Master Program (MS degree) – 2 years course

  1. Credits: During the two years, each student should get a total of at least 30 credits including those for colloquiums, special research study programs and seminars.
  2. MS Thesis: After getting all required credits, students will submit and defend their master thesis in the form of oral examination. Excellent students can be examined in a period shorter than two years with completion of the course work credit.

Doctoral Program (PhD degree) – 3 years course

  1. Submission of Abstract for PhD Thesis: The abstract for the PhD thesis should be submitted and examined by professors in the last third year.
  2. The Doctoral (PhD) Thesis: Students who have accomplished a high quality research for more than three years in the doctoral program can submit a PhD thesis. This thesis must be approved by the special committee in charge of the PhD thesis, and then it should be presented by the candidate at the oral examination. After submission and successful defense, the candidate will be granted a PhD degree. Although this is a standard procedure, it is possible to complete the Doctoral Program in less than a year depending on the progress of the student.
