The focus of this department’s research includes: condensed-matter physics, surface science and nanotechnology, high-energy physics and string theory, biophysics and soft-matter physics, atomic, molecular, and optical physics, and science education. We have over thirty full-time professors and several part-time and adjunct professors. Our faculty members have hold about thirty research projects from National Science Council annually, and total grant funds are over forty million NT per year. Our research results are marvelous, publishing about 70 articles on the renowned SCI journals each year. In addition to basic researches, we have also promoted online education and digital science research to bolster the science education and learning systems.
In response to the changing times and the different needs and career plans of students, this department is constantly making adjustments to our courses. In addition to the upgrades in the core physics courses and secondary school teacher training program, we are emphasizing the career counseling and professional skills, adding more applied science courses such as the Electro-Optical program to foster semiconductor, modern optics, and photonics science and technology professionals. To enhance the research manpower and also help nurture academic and high-tech experts in Taiwan, through the pre-master degree program and the direct Ph.D. program, undergraduate students in this department have the opportunity to obtain the master degree in five years and the Ph.D. in seven years.
