Mission and Vision/Values

Physics is perhaps the most fundamental branch of all the sciences.  The science of Physics has since long been divided into Mechanics, Acoustics, Heat, Electricity, Magnetism and Optics. These divisions now form the pillar of all researches into the theories of nature, structure of matter, atomic and nuclear Physics.


The mission of the Department over the years has been to provide high quality teaching, research, entrepreneurship training, service and the development of programmes in the pure and applied physics for the industrial and economic development of Ghana and Africa.


Over the years we have succeeded in realising our sole mission of producing high calibre and competitive physicists who do not only contribute immensely to the development of the country but also fit very well into the global physics community.  The bulk of all physicist produced in the country are from this Department as exemplified by the almost 80% Physicists at the Atomic Energy Commission who trace their roots from here.
