Welcome to the Department of Physics

The Department of Physics of Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET) has started functioning as a full-fledged department since the inception of the University in 1962. The department has been offering Physics courses to undergraduate Engineering & Architecture students. Adequate laboratory facilities are available to supplement the theoretical knowledge and to provide an experimental basis. The department has introduced Postgraduate program (M. Phil & Ph. D) in the year 1982 and M. Sc. in the year 2014. The research is conducted in the fields of Magnetism, Solid State Physics, Crystal Growth, Polymer Physics, Biophysics, Medical Physics and Health Physics, and Atmospheric Physics. The Department has 20 faculty members at present and 10 technical personnel. So far more than 50 Ph. D., 250 M. Phil. and 60 M.Sc. students have received their degrees from this Department. The Departmental offices and laboratories are located in the Old Academic Building (OAB) of BUET main campus

Message from the Head
Welcome with warm greetings to the Department of Physics, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). This department is imparting theoretical and practical courses for undergraduate students in various Engineering/ Architecture disciplines to develop scientific skills with technological applications. The Department of Physics is committed to provide outcome-based quality educations taking the role of future engineers and architects. The department has also degree-awarding programs for M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Physics, where more than twenty (20) courses are offered each year for mainly three fields of research: (i) Solid State Physics, (ii) Biophysics, Medical Physics and Health Physics, and (iii) Atmospheric Physics. In addition, endeavors are going on to start four years honour’s program in Physics soon. Hopefully, this effort will strengthen the contributing capability of BUET towards the nation and the world on science and technology. It gives me pride and pleasure to have a good number of sincere and

Research Activities

Research in the Department is broadly catagorized into three groups 1) SOLID STATE PHYSICS 2) ATMOSPHERIC PHYSICS 3) HEALTH AND MEDICAL PHYSICS   SOLID STATE PHYSICS The research in this branch is carried out in the following fields: Magnetism, Superconductivity & Colossal Magnetoresistance The current research activity in this field focuses on the magnetic and electrical properties of nanostructured magnetic materials. A group of teachers are investigating the magnetic properties like magnetization, magnetic anisotropy and magnetostriction of hard and soft magnetic materials in the form of bulk, thin films and ribbons and also nanostructured magnetic materials. This group also investigates cuprate high Tc superconductors, and colossal magnetoresistance in manganite perovskites. The CMR studies are performed on polycrystalline bulk and thick film samples. . This group has a research collaboration with the IPPS, Uppsala University, Sweden and the Depa
