1. Training

The Department of Physics was established in 1996 with 04 members. Currently, the Department has been responsible for training the Bachelor degree in Engineering Physics, Master and PhD degrees in Theoretical Physics.

In addition, the Department also takes responsible for teaching general Physics for relevant training programs in Can Tho University.

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 Department has four main research groups:

 Material science group


      1) Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Tri Tuan                    4) PhD Candidate. Dang Long Quan

      2) Dr.  Huynh Thanh Tuan                              5) Dr. Nguyen Thi Hong

      3) Dr. Nguyen Thi Kim Chi

Research interests:  Researching and producing on the nanostructured materials and its applications to industry, environment and health science. 

Computational physics group


       1) Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Thanh Tien                         3) Msc. Tran Thi Ngoc Thao

        2) PhD Candidate. Tran Yen Mi                              4) Dr. Pham Thi Bich Thao

Research interests: Calculating and simulating the electronic and optical properties of the semiconductor nano-structures. In particular, researching of transport in the low-dimensional semiconductor structures.
