Mandalay Technological University

Department of Engineering Physics

About Us

The Engineering physics department has the primary objective of advancing knowledge of physics and training qualified manpower needed by Myanmar to acquire high technology. We intend to play a key role in the advancement of engineering students with applying the knowledge of physics. 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.


The department of engineering physics previously offered two full-time post-graduate degree programs:

  1. Master of Science (MS) in Physics, and
  2. 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 fifty-five Doctorate degree holders so far during the year 2001 to 2009. Moreover the department also offered, between the year 2002 and 2003, a total number of 18 candidates in Master of Science (MS) degree.


  • The department of engineering physics mainly contributes to the Mandalay  Technological University’s vision  which is becoming a highly – prestigious technological centre of excellence (CoE) not only in teaching but also in research from every sector of engineering physics.


  • To be existed as a teaching department which can provide a comprehensive physics courses to emerge and come into prominence engineers and architects who can think reasonably and able to implement the benefits of mankind and the environment.

Research Activities

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.


Before the year 2009, 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.
