Overview

The Department of Physics at the UQU College of Applied Sciences is one of the oldest departments in Saudi universities. It was established along with other departments of the college (Chemistry, Mathematics, and Biology) in 1401 A.H.


The Department of Physics grants the bachelor’s degree in physics and medical physics to department’s students, who are required to pass and complete the minimum number of accredited units, as follows:

Physics

Students should complete 142 hours, divided into eight levels over four years, for them to obtain a bachelor’s degree in physics.

Medical Physics

Students should complete 146 hours, divided into eight levels over four years, for them to obtain a bachelor’s degree in physics.

 

The Department of Physics includes outstanding research groups that are considered among the world research centers, as it includes a selection of academic staff members whose research, papers, publications have been published in several national and international journals and periodicals. These research groups have outstanding partnerships with several companies, factories, hospitals, public and private medical centers, and entrepreneurs at the level of the Saudi Kingdom, providing them with scientific consultation required to solve the problems they face. This is implemented in line with the vision and objectives of the Department of Physics at the UQU College of Applied Sciences.

The department offers two academic programs: Pure Physics Program (40300) and Medical Physics Program (40301). Students obtain a bachelor’s degree in pure physics after successfully completing 81 accredited hours, or obtain a bachelor’s degree in medical physics after successfully completing 86 accredited hours.

The programs offered by the Department of Physics keep pace with the modern spirit of the era and meet the requirements of the society, as the department’s graduates can teach in universities and schools, and work in medical and radiation protection institutions. In addition, the Physics Program links between the theoretical aspect and concepts of physics and practical applications in the field of engineering. The Pure Physics and Medical Physics programs are offered to both male and female students.
