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 the undergraduate Engineering & Architecture students. Adequate laboratory facilities are available to supplement the theoretical knowledge and to provide 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, Health Physics, Medical Physics & Radiation Protection, and Atmospheric Physics. The Department has eighteen faculty members and seven technical personnels. So far 26 Ph. D., 226 M. Phil. and 15 M.Sc. students have received their degrees from this Department. At present about 25 M.Sc., 25 M. Phil. and 9 Ph. D. students are working. The Departmental offices and laboratories are housed in the Old Academic Building (OAB).
