Fundamental and Applied Physics Program

Program outline

The Fundamental and Applied Physics Program is jointly offered by the Department of Physics in the School of Science and the Department of Physical Science and Engineering in the School of Engineering. The program is designed to allow early exposure to specialized scientific fields and to cultivate well-balanced individuals through broad-based education and professional knowledge. On the firm base of fundamental physics that will be taught in the first years, the program enables students to acquire a deep understanding in their majors of various fields in physics and technology.

Physics - School of Science

Chemistry - School of Science
School-specific features

After finishing the first year of basic physics, students choose from a variety of majors, including Astrophysics, Elementary Particle Physics, Condensed Matter Physics and Biophysics. Courses offered in the second and third years include Analytical Mechanics, Statistical Physics, Electricity and Magnetism, Quantum Mechanics, Mathematical Physics, Physics Tutorials, Physics Experiments, and Physics Seminars. In their final year, students in the School of Science are required to major in a specialized field of either theoretical or experimental physics. Subjects of research in physics extend to infinity, ranging from the micro world to the distant expanses of outer space: Elementary Particle Physics and Physics of Gravity; Astrophysics; Physics of Superconductors, Semiconductors, Magnetic materials, and Dielectric materials; and Biophysics.

Career Prospects

Many of the students are expected to enter the Graduate School of Science. Then, after undergoing rigorous training and studies, most of our graduates eventually enter teaching or research careers in academia or industry. Basic problem-solving and abstract thinking skills make physics graduates competitive employees in a broad range of areas including finance, industry and education.

School/Course-specific features

The Applied Physics Course aims to cultivate leading scientists and engineers with broad perspective, deep thinking, and global communication ability. Applied physics is a field that brings collaboration between science and technology into reality, and performs the role of an interface between science and technology. Therefore, our education program is based on both basic and applied physics, and provides undergraduate students with the ability to perform scientific and technological research. Students in the final year join one of the research groups in the Department of Physical Science and Engineering to work on a research project for their graduation thesis and brush up their communication and presentation abilities through fruitful discussion with supervisors and older members of the group.


Important Notice to Applicants
This is the final year that Nagoya University will accept applications to the Physics Program in the School of Engineering. The Applied Physics Programs in the School of Engineering and the School of Science will merge into a single "Physics Program" in the School of Science from 2020.
