Physics & Engineering Physics

The Department of Physics and Engineering Physics is celebrating the 100 years of tradition of excellence in the year 2010.  As a department offering programs in both College of Arts & Science and Engineering, our faculty members and graduate students address basic science and also applied science with the same zeal and enthusiasm.

Thus, if your interests lie in the Cosmology or Climate change, atmospheric and space science or Plasma physics, material science, spintronics,  nuclear & particle physics or applications, theory or experiment, you will find a Professor who is an expert in that area. 

The U of S campus is the home of Canadian Light source where our departmental faculty have strong research programs.  Our faculty are involved in national and international space and atmospheric science programs with collaborators in Canada and elsewhere.

The nuclear and particle physics activities make use of SLOWPOKE-2 reactor in Saskatoon and accelerator facilities in USA and Japan.
