Educational Purpose
Physics is most fundamental field of study within all areas of sciences and engineering. Physics has developed by following the rules of nature through explaining theories of experimental results by using numerical values and computers and verifying predictions of theories with experiments. Sogang University Department of Physics was established along with establishment of the university.In a short period of time, intensively developed and currently stands in the center of domestic and foreign academic field of physics. And the department is proud of their strong relationship between faculties and students, high rate of scholarship, extensive research opportunities and so on. Also offers various courses from basics of nature to courses that can easily find application including quantum physics, condensed matter physics, particle physics, electronic physics, computational physics, modern optics and so on.
