Welcome to the Department of Physics at the University College Cork.
The Department of Physics is one of Ireland’s largest, most dynamic centres of scientific development with a focus on excellence in both education and research, and a particularly strong track record in PhD education.
The strength of our undergraduate degree programmes in both physics and astrophysics attracts a large cohort of talented students to study physics at UCC. Our research strength also attracts many international post-doctoral fellows and visiting scientists to our department, making it a large, cosmopolitan place for the advancement of science.
The Department of Physics plays an important strategic role in the region through its extensive interactions with industry both nationally and internationally.
