We aim to equip students of the Applied Physics major with knowledge of fundamental physics, biomedical physics, nuclear radiation, materials physics and optoelectronics. Our graduates are well prepared for employment in industrial, commercial, government and education sectors and find jobs in hospitals, nuclear facilities, engineering companies, the government and schools.
The major also prepares students for further studies. Many graduates pursue postgraduate studies in nuclear science and technology, biomedical physics, materials engineering and optoelectronics.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have studied a science-related discipline at a high school or post-secondary institution,
have an Associate Degree or Higher Diploma in a relevant discipline such as Applied Science, Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or other technical qualifications.
For senior-year (Advanced Standing II) admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of ≥3.0 or an equivalent overall mark, or a credit award in Applied Science, Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline.

Graduates working in a field related to mechanical engineering are qualified for Grade 1 Affiliate Membership of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. With further professional development, a route exists for Affiliate Members to gain chartered engineer status.
The College of Science and Engineering and the Department offer work placement opportunities through various internship schemes that provide students with full-time job attachments in firms not only in Hong Kong but also in the Pearl River Delta region and overseas. Through such placements, students will:

CityU’s Department of Physics excels in fundamental and applied research.
Most of our top students choose to remain at the Department to pursue MPhil or PhD studies.
After graduation, some of our top students choose to join research teams in prestigious universities such as Oxford, Stanford and Cambridge to further their studies.
Applied Physics is high tech, and high tech is the future. This major prepares students for the future.
