About Us

The Department offers opportunities for study leading to a degree of Bachelor of Technology in Applied Physics. Physics is a fundamental science, which explains the physical nature of the world and the universe as a whole. The Applied Physics Programme on the other hand is professionally oriented and is more relevant in serving industries and research laboratories in a developing country like Nigeria.


The Applied Physics programme is meant to equip graduates that will be differ from those of the conventional Physics programme and are well prepared for a wide variety of interesting careers which include jobs in:

  • Research and Development laboratory of technologically based industries such as Electronics, Energy production, Iron and Steel Industry, Telecommunication and Petrochemical industries etc.
  • Government services in administrative and technical capacity or in maintenance managerial positions.
  • Research laboratory in the University and in the teaching profession.
  • Self-employment as professional Physicists, by setting up consultancy services in contemporary technological Physics based industries.


The Department of Pure and Applied Physics has designed a degree programme for a Bachelor of Technology in Applied Physics with the following objectives.

  • To produce physicists of high caliber and competence in theoretical and experimental Physics so as to enhance knowledge and understanding of our physical world.
  • To acquaint students with the techniques of Applied Physics and provide a working experience in technologically based industries and research laboratories.
  • To offer specialized optional courses for those who may opt for academic career to be able to specialize in Radiation and Health Physics, Geophysics, Space Physics, Energy and Environment; Materials and Nuclear Physics, Communications Physics and other Physics related disciplines.


The Department of Pure and Applied Physics is one of the foundation Departments of the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Nigeria, when it began in 1990.  The Department trains students for the Degree of Bachelor of Technology in Applied Physics.  The programme has its developments based on providing the basic needed exposure in both teaching and research towards day-to-day growth in the field of Science and Technology viz-a-viz Geophysics, Energy/Solid State, Electronics/Communication Physics and Radiation and Health Physics.  It produced its first batch of graduates in 1997/1998 session and in the year 2000 its postgraduate programmes commenced.
