Computer Science and Engineering SchoolApplied Physics  

Welcome to the Department of Applied Physics
The mission of the Department of Applied Physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is to acquire, generate, and disseminate knowledge at the frontier of physics research and to harness it to the task of advancing science and technology. In particular, the department is active in producing the evolving synergism between optoelectronics and microelectronics.


The department offers both an undergraduate B.Sc program in engineering, and M.Sc. and Ph.D. graduate programs in applied physics. These programs come to meet the challenge of training the engineer and applied physicist of the future, when the technologies are based on the combination of hitherto distinct scientific disciplines, and are subject to continuous change and development.
