1. Introduction

1.1. Training

The Department of Physics was established in 1996 with 04 members. Currently, the Department has 15 members, including 04 Associate Professors, 05 Philosophy Doctors, 03 PhD students, 01 Masters and 02 laboratory staffs. The Department of Physics has been responsible for training graduate programs of Theoretical Physics and Engineering Physics (since 2000), training undergraduate program of Engineering Physics (since 2014) and training PhD program of Theoretical Physics (since 2019). In addition, the Department of Physics also participates in teaching General Physics to undergraduate students majoring in Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Technology, Agriculture and Environment at general stage. 

1.2. Scientific research

In addition to training duties, the Department also performs the tasks of basic and applied scientific research to actively contribute to improving the quality of training and serving socio-economic development. The main research groups of the Department include:
