The Department of Applied Physics was founded in 2000, and was renamed as the Department of Electrophysics in 2010. Since the development of science and technology is closely related with the principles of physics, the education of this department is based on the fundamental training of physics, and also includes the optoelectronic and the semiconductor programs which are used to strengthen the overall understanding of the applied physics. We have also established the graduate program of the Optoelectronics and Solid State Electronics since 2003. The mission of this institute is to train people to have the research ability that is necessary for the rapid development of science and technology, and is to support the optoelectronic and the semiconductor industries around the world. We train the students to have the ability of analysis and the skills of experiments such that they can become the main support for the academic and the industrial worlds in the future.

Curriculum Planning
The education offered by this department not only focuses on the traditional physics training, but also includes the courses of electronics, electronics experiment, experimental physics, experimental physics techniques, and so on. This arrangement will enable the students to combine the theoretical courses with the experimental courses. Based on the characteristics of emphasizing the courses of electronics experiment and experimental physics techniques, we hope the students indeed understand the physics and be capable of solving the problems by hands. By experiencing the real situations, they should promote their interests in the physics. When the students are in the third grade, they must choose appropriate programs according to their own interests and make further course planning in coordination with the special topics courses lectured by the teachers. Now the research fields of the faculty include solid state physics, optoelectronics, and semiconductor. The students are welcomed to enter the laboratory and join the research tasks such that they can verify the theory discussed in the class.
