Department of Physics
National Kaohsiung Normal University

History

Our department was established in 1972. The master's program was established in 1995, and the PhD program was set up in 2007. For a long time, it has been our duty to train secondary school physics teachers in Taiwan, while we were not forgetting to pursue innovation and improvement in the research.
