Over a span of fifty years the department has expanded many folds and has produced thousands of BSc, BS, M.Sc., MPhil and PhD in Physics. The graduates of this department are not only working in prestigious institutes/organizations/universities of Pakistan but are also serving as faculty members of foreign universities.
Physics is a fundamental science which exerts a vital and dominant role in the development of other scientific disciplines. Physics has also a direct impact on society and economy because the present civilization is strongly influenced by science and technology. The main objectives of Department of Physics are
To provide prepare qualified and focused professionals in the subject of Physics to meet the future needs of educational institutes and industry.
