Mandalay Technological University

Department of Engineering Physics

About Us

All of the current teaching staffs in the department of engineering physics are keen on research work besides their main teaching responsibilities. They promote excellence in a wide range of areas such as condensed matter physics, material science, electronic control systems, atomic physics and semiconductor physics.

Programmes Offered

Engineering and Applied Science (Physics) Programs

The Department offers a Doctoral program in Engineering physics, and Master program in Engineering physics.

Engineering Program

The Department provides the Physics classes required to support the engineering and Bio-technological programs offered by the Engineering Departments and Bio-technological Department respectively.

Currently, the department stands as the supporting department to engineering departments so the department does not offer any types of engineering degrees. The physics department teaches in first year undergraduate courses which are specially designed for engineering students of all disciplines combine fundamental training in physics with emphasis on broad applications of physics in modern technologies. When they finished undergraduate courses, engineering students will be equipped with a clear understanding of scientific principles and at the same time be aware of how physics is applied to industrial problem solving and technology development.

The department has a strong scientific experimental laboratory especially intending for first year undergraduate engineering students. The laboratory can be conducted more than (20) types of experiments relating to Mechanics, electricity, magnetism, heat, optics etc. Thus our laboratory allows students to perform experiments to approve their individual theoretical knowledge in accordance with their career aspirations.

History
Vision
Mission

The Department of Engineering Physics previously offered two full-time post-graduate degree programs: (i) Master of Science (MS) in Physics, and (ii) Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Physics with concentration in Applied Physics. This program offered opportunities for study and research leading to the MS and PhD degrees in physics. The department offered six Doctorate degree Holders so far during the year 2001 to 2007. Moreover the department also offered, between the year 2002 and 2003, a total numbers of 18 candidates in Master of Science (MS) degree.

Vision

  • To train a qualified manpower needed by Myanmar to acquire and develop an economy based on high technology.
  • To play a key role in the advancement of engineering students with applying the knowledge of physics.

Research Activities

AREAS OF RESEARCH

Before the year 20009, the department achieved some research activities such as a pneumatically operated wall-climbing robot, a small four-legged walking robot including infrared detection system assembled on the robot’s body, robotic arm consisting of five joints and represents 5-degree of freedom manipulator using electrical actuators, and voice activated control system using the pre-programmed vocal commands.

What can you do with your engineering physics?

Engineering physics supports engineering students of all disciplines combine fundamental training in physics with emphasis on broad applications of physics in modern technologies.

Current Academic Research Fields

Currently, all of the teaching staffs are actively involved in their primary teaching duties so the department does not carry out research work.
