13. Harvard University Department of PhysicsIn 1884, a new physics laboratory opened at Harvard. It was based on the revolutionary idea that "the department of physics in a University must embrace both teaching and investigation" (John Trowbridge).
From those pioneering days and throughout the Department's long and illustrious history, its faculty and students have been engaged in groundbreaking research and standard-setting instruction, contributing importantly to Harvard's reputation as one of the premier institutions of higher learning in the world. Among Harvard's 43 Nobel laureates, 10 are or were physics faculty members. Today, the latest generation of Harvard physicists continues to bring new insights into the exploration of fundamental problems involving physics at all length scales, and to provide outstanding and innovative educational opportunities to the many talented men and women who enroll in Harvard's flexible undergraduate and graduate programs.
14. Heidelberg University - Department of Physics and Astronomy The department of physics and astronomy is dedicated to a broadly laid-out programme of teaching and research. It feels itself committed to Humboldt's ideal of teaching rooted in research and sees its research programme an the borders of knowledge as a prerequisite for teaching and training its students at high quality.
Research encompasses core areas of fundamental physics as well as interdisciplinary border areas. In the core areas, research focuses on elementary particle physics, the structure and evolution of the universe, and the properties of complex classical and quantum systems. The interdisciplinary border areas include environmental physics, bio- and medical physics as well as technical computer science. Research is located at 4 department institutes and the Heidelberg Centre for Astronomy. Apart from that, the research environment in Heidelberg is distinguished by a multitude of extra-university research institutions which are topically and personally closely connected to the department. ... more.
The courses of studies include a Bachelor-Masters programme, the state examination for teachers at secondary schools and a doctoral programme with a wide scope.

The vibrant and internationally-leading research programme actively fosters the development of new knowledge and new areas of technology (see examples overleaf).
Physics at Imperial was ranked 2nd in Europe and 13th in the World by ARWU 2011.
We offer both three year BSc and four year MSci Physics programmes including with Theoretical Physics, a Year in Europe, Music Performance, Science Education.
We also offer nine Master's level taught postgraduate courses, including three Centres for Doctoral Training which can lead directly to PhD studies.
16. Kyoto University - Graduate School of Science - Faculty of Science - Division of Physics and Astronomy The Division of Physics and Astronomy consists of three research departments.
The Department of Physics I and the Department of Physics II both work on elucidating the universal, fundamental laws of the natural world. While Physics I concentrates its efforts on the field of condensed matter physics, Physics II focuses mainly on the fields of particle physics, nuclear physics, and astrophysics. The Department of Astronomy aims to study phenomena in space, based on techniques used in astronomy and astrophysics.
In the Division of Physics and Astronomy, we address the important problems of each field on a wide range, conducting both theoretical, experimental and observational studies. We continually aim to conduct fundamental research in order to maintain one of the highest levels of research worldwide and to train excellent researchers to carry on with the traditions of research at our departments.
17. Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich, the Faculty of Physics In the spirit of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat (LMU) Munich, the Faculty of Physics stands for comprehensive education and innovative research in the sciences. In order to live up to this ideal, the Faculty of Physics at LMU Munich spares no effort to realize a broad spectrum of physics subjects carefully coordinated with adjacent sciences. Research today would be unthinkable without merging efforts and collaborating on projects. Fine examples of this are the Center for NanoScience (CeNS) founded in 1998, the Arnold Sommerfeld Center for Theoretical Physics (ASC) founded in 2004 and our extensive involvement in graduate research programs sponsored by the German Research Foundation.
We considers one of our most important missions to be the training of tomorrow's scientists. Only highly educated and well supported junior scientists will be able to persevere beyond the university and ensure quality research and teaching within the university over the long term. International graduate schools coordinated with the Max Planck Society, our involvement in the Research Training Groups (Graduiertenkollegs) sponsored by the German Research Foundation and the Elite Network of Bavaria, the EU's Marie Curie programs and Emmy Noether junior scientist groups are outstanding examples of our pursuit of these aims.
The Faculty of Physics recognized long ago that it would be impossible to reach its goals without strong partners. For this reason, when filling teaching positions, we place a lot of value in only hiring people with international contacts. For years the faculty has relied on major partners and will continue to develop its joint work with other institutions and organizations. We enjoy particularly close relationships with the Max Planck Society and the Bavarian Academy of Science as well as a number of businesses from the private sector. It is only with additional resources that we are able to offer students in Munich the full array of physics in all its scientific facets.
18. MIT School of Science The School of Science is an amazing enterprise. With approximately 300 faculty members, 1200 graduate students, 1000 undergraduate majors and similarly large numbers of postdoctoral researchers and research staff, it is large enough to carry out research at the frontiers in every field of science. Our faculty members have won 16 Nobel Prizes and our alumni have won 16 Nobel prizes; most of these have come in the past 20 years. The six departments in the School are consistently rated among the best in the world.
Some members of our community study deep philosophical questions: What is the nature of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, which make up 95% of the content of our universe? How does our brain-a complex system of interconnected neurons, give rise to our mind-our consciousness and ability to learn?
Other faculty members study problems that have obvious practical implications: How does global warming increase the intensity of hurricanes? Can we make adult stem cells capable of generating any cells in the body, so that we could replace cells damaged by disease without using embryos?
Thus, the School is a magnificent generator of new knowledge. However, among the great research universities, MIT is unique in having a School of Science that is deeply committed to education. MIT provides each of its undergraduates with an understanding of the basic elements of biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics, and our Science faculty are devoted to doing this well. Some of our most famous faculty members, even a few with Nobel Prizes, are also some of the best teachers of our freshman subjects.
Our science majors are provided with the very best introduction to their chosen field, as well as the opportunity to participate in forefront research, so if they decide to pursue graduate studies, they are superbly prepared. On the other hand an education in science prepares one for many careers. Students with bachelor's degrees in science often go on to medical school, law school, business school, and other professional schools including engineering.
Some of our graduate students have pursued distinguished careers in research and education. However, others enjoy equally satisfying careers in business, industry, and government. Many combine their PhD degrees in science with medical, law, or business degrees and are uniquely prepared to make creative contributions to the modern world.
19. Peking University - School of Physics In 1913, the "WuLi Men" (physics division) was established at Peking University, and this was later renamed the Department of Physics in 1919. With the reorganization of the Chinese system of higher education in 1952, the new Physics Department of Peking University was created from the merger of the physics departments of Peking University, Tsinghua University and Yenching University. This became the premier center for physics in China. The School of Physics was established in 2001, and includes not only the traditional fields of study in physics, but also related physical sciences. Today, the School of Physics includes Physics, Astronomy, Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences, and Nuclear Science & Technology and consists of eleven divisions and seven related research institutes, including the State Key Laboratory for Artificial Microstructure and Mesoscopic Physics and the State Key Laboratory of Nuclear Physics and Technology.
It has been nearly 100 years since Peking University established its Department of Physics. The Department's founding in 1913 was not only an announcement of the importance that Peking University placed on the physical sciences, but also a milestone in the development of modern science in China. One hundred years on, the School has made distinguished contributions to the nation and to the world in both education and academia. As it embarks on its second century, the Peking University School of Physics extends a warm welcome to distinguished scholars and outstanding young students from China and abroad who wish to join its ranks.
To celebrate its centennial, the School of Physics creates the distinguished lecture series: Centennial Physics Lectures at Peking University starting in 2010. The lecture series will be held once each semester. Eminent scholars around the world will be invited to present lectures on both fundamental and cutting-edge problems in physics, astronomy, and atmospheric and oceanic sciences. We hope that this lecture series will establish a thought-provoking forum, stimulate lively and topical intellectual debates, strengthen global and interdisciplinary collaborations, promote the advancement of physical sciences, extend the distinguished and innovative scholarly tradition at Peking University.
The Peking University School of Physics now has the following divisions and related research institutes.
20. Physics Society - National University of Singapore NUS Physics Society, though having a small committee of 15 students, has a big heart for the welfare of all the Physics majors. Every year, the number of Physics majors in NUS adds up to about 250 students. We are here to go all out to make our university life more memorable for all the young Physicists in NUS. We want to hear you, and do something that can make everyone's life better! Besides, we also act as a bridge between the student body and the teaching/administrative staff. We want to remove the gap between students and staff, and make the NUS Physics department a lovely place to be in.
As such, we organise activities like the Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration, Staff and Student Games, and many other fun and food oriented activities, to make Physics majors get out of their study room, and have some fellowship with friends, professors and tutors. For the academic part, we also provide past year paper solutions for students to download, enabling students to be more prepared for exams. We also hold career talks, to ensure that our young physicists know where to go after their undergraduate life. At the same time, we do not forget the freshies too! In the beginning of every academic year, we will organize a Physics Orientation Day for freshmen interested in taking up Physics as a major. We will bring you around the Physics department, answer your doubts, and make you feel comfortable with the new environment.
By default, every Physics major is a member of the Physics Society. If you would like to join our committee, do come for our Annual General Meeting, and nominate yourself! All we need is someone who is consistent, responsible, and has a heart for the Physics community.
