The mission of the Physics Department within the School of Science and Technology is to provide Nazarbayev University students with the skills and tools to develop the underlying technologies and support knowledge necessary for the technological-industrial infrastructure. A career in physics is exciting because physicists are trained to be natural problem solvers and creative thinkers. Economy is undergoing a transformation that reflects worldwide trends – the know-hows and technical innovations become the most important asset. In order to develop the necessary underlying technologies to support this transformation, highly skilled physicists and engineers are required.If you like the freedom of active discovery, the power of invention, the language of mathematics, and a good-sized paycheck, then physics is a great career choice.
The students will gain profound systematic knowledge in physics and develop the ability to identify and use theoretical knowledge in the context of real-life phenomena and engineering applications in technology innovation and entrepreneurship. The graduates are expected to acquire advanced analytical, mathematical, computational and experimental skills corresponding to the subjects of their Master projects. Students are expected to become exposed to the international research environment. The program is designed to take advantage of the faculty expertise and the laboratory resources of the School of Science and Technology, and Nazarbayev University Research and Innovation System.
