Department of Applied Physics


The Department of Applied Physics has been an integral part of Tunghai University since its founding in 1955. Over the course of 68 years, the department has witnessed the graduation of a total of 2,660 students, with more than one-third of them later earning master or doctoral degrees. The achievements of our alumni have received recognition from the physics community, both locally and globally. In response to the evolving needs of the Information Age and to support Taiwan's high-tech industry and advanced research, the department introduced a master degree program in 1998, followed by the establishment of a Ph.D. program in 2010.



Our programs focus on cultivating skills in experimental and technological analysis. With the establishment of the master's program, the Department of Applied Physics has been able to nurture high-tech professionals. The department provides a wide array of elective courses, allowing students the flexibility to choose according to their interests. All instructional courses are interconnected and incorporate cutting-edge equipment. Our faculty members possess expertise in various fields, including computational physics, laser optics, biophysics, nanomaterials, and surface sciences.
