Academic Programs

BS Physics

Overview Road Map


The degree programs are designed as per guidelines of Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan to meet the national and international standards.  The participants get opportunity to study basic and advanced courses in Physics covering theoretical, experimental and computational subjects.  With the completion of degree, the participants will be able to continue higher degrees in Physics as well as may found careers in teaching and R&D institutes. The courses provide benefit of a flexible curricular program capable of preparing them for advance studies in Physics as well as careers in teaching and research institutes. The department encourages the students to participate in the research projects, and provide them with possible facilities and guidance. The opportunity to work closely with a faculty member and to get first-hand research experience is especially helpful in making post-graduate career decisions. Students will involve for full-time research both at UMT and other research institutes. Such research activities would result in students presenting their findings at professional conferences and/or co-authoring articles in valued journals. In addition, they will have the opportunity to participate in the activities of different university societies, attend departmental seminars, and contribute to the departmental governance.

Program Goals

The goals of program are to provide an uplifting and nurturing environment that facilitates and stimulates the active, explorative of Basic learning of Physics for the students.

  • Encouragement of creative thinking
  • Personal and academic growth
  • Development, coordination and management of national system of innovation
  • Production of maximum human capital, sustainable economic growth
  • Improvement of life quality
  • Problem Solving
  • Organizational
  • Enrichment of general scientific attitude and understanding
  • Development of science communication for general public

Why Study Physics

The aim of physics is to study nature at its most fundamental level to discover and apply the general laws that govern force and motion, matter and energy, space and time. Physics can be as concrete as the stresses in a bridge or as abstract as the curved space-time near a black hole. It studies systems ranging in size from the smallest elementary particles to the entire universe. Physics lies at the heart of the natural sciences. Almost any piece of modern scientific instrumentation is based on principles of optics, electronics, or nuclear physics and such apparatus usually has its origins in basic work done by physicists. Almost any scientific problem can be approached using the ideas and methods of physics, which is why there are many "hybrid" disciplines such as astrophysics, biophysics, and geophysics. The central position of physics among the sciences means that it is an ideal starting point, not only for physics research, but for many kinds of scientific and engineering work. It also means that physics is a perfect academic focus for a liberal arts education.

Career Opportunities

Physics, the most basic of the sciences, has intellectual and useful aspects. The intellectual component resides in our innate desire to understand the physical characteristics of our universe. The usefulness is evident everywhere in high-tech products and computerized communications. Physics can fairly lay claim to be the part of modern civilization. The reasoning, mathematical, experimental and computer skills obtained during this program will enable the students to seek for the careers:

  • Nuclear Science
