Introduction

The Department of Physics, founded in 1952, offers various undergraduate and graduate curricula and strives for excellence in training experts not only in fundamental and applied physics research areas but also in areas relevant to modern technology societies. Our department offers BS, MS, PhD, and MS/PhD combined degrees in undergraduate and graduate programs. Currently, there are approximately 120 undergraduate students and 30 graduate students enrolled in the department. The physics program is ranked 14th in South Korea, according to the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018.

We provide fully-developed and creative learning environments and research opportunities for undergraduate students and, particularly, for graduate students. Many undergraduate students are supported by scholarships through various funding programs. All of the graduate students are fully supported by teaching and research assistantships.

Faculty members in the department, consisting of 16 professors, are involved in both experimental and theoretical studies covering most of the central topics of modern physics. At present, we are running two research centers: the Institute of Photonics and Information Technology, and the Research Institute of Physics and Chemistry.
