The Department of Physics at the City University of Hong Kong was officially launched on July 1, 2017. The Department builds on the excellent tradition of the physics faculty in the former Department of Physics and Materials Science.
A rigorous curriculum is a hallmark of the Department of Physics. The goal of our teaching is to equip students with knowledge and critical thinking skills that will enable them to tackle difficult problems throughout their career, and in their life. Our curriculum teaches not only foundational courses in physics, but also technology driven courses such as computer modeling and advanced instrumentation.
Our curriculum is internationally benchmarked. It has allowed our students to enrol in joint degree programs with top universities in the world, such as Columbia University in the USA, to obtain degrees from both universities.
