The Physics program trains scientists of high technical and intellectual quality, who have solid theoretical and experimental bases, are capable of identifying and addressing science and technology problems from a multidisciplinary perspective, and can perform equally well in the academic, scientific, or technological fields, contributing to the improvement of science, technology, the environment, education, and economic production through knowledge-based scientific research. Towards this end, the program studies different solutions aimed at increasing levels of quality in the development of scientific knowledge in the country. Over the course of the program, students are presented with the various theories of physics, such as Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Quantum Mechanics, Relativity, and Thermal Physics. Also covered are the principles of scientific research used to diagnose, predict, and apply physical properties of the different natural systems in all their phases, ordered or not, at macroscopic, microscopic, and subatomic scales, from stars and galaxies to elementary particles. The physics program prepares graduates to undertake activities in a wide range of research and development fields, such as in Particle and High Energy Physics, Cosmology, Solid State Physics, Optics, Materials Physics, Nanophysics, and Nanotechnology.
Our advanced laboratories in Classical Mechanics, Electricity, Magnetism, Thermodynamics, and Modern Physics guarantee that our students acquire the fundamental skills of experimental and applied physics. We have a first-rate faculty of PhDs, all of whom participate actively in international scientific research. That our courses are taught by researchers ensures solid, current, and multidisciplinary learning that is both theoretical and experimental.
