Although the Department of Physics at National Chung Hsing University, founded in 1987, is very young in comparison to other physics departments in Taiwan, it has a long-upheld tradition of pursuing excellence both in teaching and research that dates back to its days as the Physics Division in the Department of Applied Mathematics. Today, the Department has established itself as the best and most important physics department in central Taiwan.
With twenty-five full-time professors and two teaching assistants devoting themselves to teaching a broad range of physics from advanced to fundamental to highly interdisciplinary, the department offers NCHU's students as well as students from nearby universities and schools invaluable learning opportunities.
More than 240 undergraduate students are enrolled in the department. Under the tutelage of the faculty, they are led to the forefront of contemporary physics. Research at the Department of Physics explores nearly all representative frontiers of physics, including nanoscale structures and devices, novel magnetic and superconducting materials, quantum computation, thin-film devices, scanning probe microscopy, statistical mechanics of biomolecules and biomembranes, novel amorphous materials, single electronics, biophysics, and evolution of bacterial circadian rhythms, and atomic physics. Armed with state-of-the-art facilities, an excellent physics library, and close collaboration with outstanding faculty members in the Schools of Engineering and Life Sciences, the department's faculty, and students continue to make frequent exciting progress.
The Department of Physics offers bachelor, master, and Ph.D. degrees. The bachelor program is not recommended for students who are not familiar with Chinese.
