Introduction:

The mission of the Department of Physics is to produce graduates of international caliber with knowledge and skills needed for the socio-economic development of the country. The department provides calm and peaceful environment and infrastructure for optimum utilization for faculty, staff and students.

The department has introduced BS (4-Year) degree program in Physics and M. Sc. (2-Year program) to cover up the recent developments in the field of Physics. This program consists of Newtonian Physics, Modern Physics, Quantum Physics, Nuclear Physics, Plasma Physics, Computational Physics and Digital Electronics. The study of this program provides frame work of many fields in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Information Technology, Telecommunications, engineering, Health & Agriculture Sciences.

The Minhaj University has adopted the Higher Education Commission curriculum for 4-Year BS program in Physics since 2010.
