About

The Physics programme at Koc University is flexible and allows a double major with other disciplines such as mathematics, chemistry, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer science. 

Overview

Physics constitutes the very foundation of men’s efforts to understand nature. The laws of physics, which are reached through observations and careful experimentation, find applications from the subatomic particles to the astronomic formations such as stars and galaxies.

The purpose of a physicist is to enrich our knowledge about the universe through these laws and the underlying mathematical formalism. Physics also contributes to society by providing an explanation for the behavior of complex systems such as molecules, solids, liquids, even living organisms. 

The design of advanced technology materials,the fabrication of semiconductor devices, the development of optical communication systems have mostly evolved as applications of ideas and observations that originally came from physicists.

Every year, very few and highly qualified students are admitted to our department with full scholarship. In general accordance with the liberal arts educational philosophy of Koc University, the Physics programme at Koc University offers our graduates a solid physics background, and prepares them with a broad knowledge base to follow up careers in various related disciplines. In addition to the area courses, we also offer independent study courses where the student works closely with a faculty member on a research project to develop research skills. 

Students from other departments are also encouraged (with an extension of their scholarship into the fifth year) to obtain a second major in physics or, alternatively, complete a minor program in physics by taking six courses some of which they are free to choose.

Alumni

Graduates were able to receive full scholarships to pursue Ph.D. degrees in physics and other related disciplines from prestigious universities such as Boston University, California Institute of Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Rice University, Rutgers University, University of Alberta, University of Central Florida, University of Maryland, University of Iowa, University of Texas A&M, and University of Rochester.
