BSc Applied Physics 理學士(應用物理學)

BScAP

Short Description

The Department of Physics at the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) was officially launched on 1 July 2017. Building on the excellent tradition of the physics faculty in the former Department of Physics and Materials Science, the Department of Physics aspires to become a leading physics department in the Asia-Pacific Region. In the 2014 Research Assessment Exercise conducted by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong, CityU’s physics department ranked second amongst all eight universities in Hong Kong. Our faculty members have received international recognition, including fellowships from prestigious societies such as the American Physical Society and the Materials Research Society.

The Department currently offers the following major:

  • BSc Applied Physics

The Applied Physics major is not an ordinary Physics major. In Applied Physics, students are taught biomedical physics, nuclear radiation, materials physics and optoelectronics, paving their way to a diverse range of careers in medical and health care, education, engineering, commercial and industrial sectors, nuclear radiation facilities or postgraduate studies. Students may take part in the department-based research attachment scheme which provides them with early exposure to discovery and innovation. Students of the Applied Physics major who meet certain requirements can apply for admission to the Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program between City University of Hong Kong and Columbia University in the USA. To learn more about the Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program, please visit http://gs.columbia.edu/cityu-hk/.
