Message From The Head of Department.

Welcome to the Department of Physics at Kwame Nkrumah University. As you explore, you will find a wealth of information about us: who we are, what research we do and what academic programs we offer.

Physics is the foundation of all the natural sciences and the most advanced and dynamically changing discipline in the natural sciences.

History shows that classical mechanics was established in the 17th century, followed by thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, electromagnetism, and fluid mechanics in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the early 20th century, the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics were established. These are the gold standard of physics, where our predecessors uncovered natural phenomena' nature and compiled them into universal concepts and laws. The industrial revolution cannot be discussed without the development of physics.

There are about 4 members in the Department of Physics in the School of Natural Sciences. We are sure that you will find a field of research in which you are interested. We welcome those who are curious and inquisitive about nature and its mechanisms, those who want to open up new horizons in the natural sciences with clear eyes and flexible thinking, and those who want to use physics to help solve society's problems.

If you go into the physics department, and if you understand physics, you may see the world differently.

Mr. Kaile Brightone
