Application for Admission

A college/university degree in BS or BA (for computational physics A only) and a detailed study plan are required. Official transcripts of all college level courses are also required along with at least three letters of recommendation. Other documents such as scores of GRE and GRE subject in physics and proofs of various awards received are not mandatory but will help in the evaluation process.


The Master of Science program

Enrolled students can choose to work in one of the three research fields for their course requirements (a minimum of 30 credit hours) and master theses: computational physics A, computational physics B, and experimental physics. The field of computational physics A especially welcomes students with liberal arts degrees who are willing to try rigorous training in physics. A series of courses is provided annually to students for their academic preparation, including classical mechanics, quantum mechanics (I & II), electrodynamics, computational physics, solid state physics (I & II), statistical physics, nonlinear physics, social physics, and physics of magnetic resonance imaging.

The Programs of Patent Law and Eletrophysics

The patent law program offers courses in physical sciences and laws related to the practice of patent rights as an academic collaboration between the institute and the college of law of NCCU. A certificate is issued to the student who completes 21 credit hours of the program. The program of electrophysics welcomes all undergraduate students who have completed or are currently taking a course of calculus. It is designed to prepare students for a career in the high-tech industry and/or more advanced study in physical sciences.
