Bachelors of Science in

Physics (Biophysics)

Biophysics offers you a multi-disciplinary field spanning Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Medicine. From understanding kinetics and energy distribution at cellular level to developing mathematical models of the dynamics of cells and tissues, this degree will let students delve into the variety and complexity of life and explain it with simple physical laws to gain powerful insight. The classroom teaching is supplemented with laboratory techniques and computing skills to make you an expert on a broad range of techniques like spectroscopy, electrophysiology, computational modeling and cutting-edge technologies like x-ray crystallography, laser light spectroscopy and several others. Not being offered anywhere else in Pakistan, University of Lahore becomes the first place to offer this unique and fast advancing program.

Degree

Requirements

12 years of education (Higher Secondary School Certificate/Intermediate) F.Sc(Pre-Engg.)/ICS/DAE/A-Level or Equivalent(Physics & Mathematics Combination) with atleast second Division min 45% marks

Why this

Degree

Biophysics has become a highly emerging field throughout the world.Graduates of this program would be able to develop both the tools and understanding for treating various diseases. They will able to develop new instrumentation for imaging, detecting chemicals and materials.Eventually, they will have the insight and technology to find the solution for our big problems like energy crisis, clean resources, defining new and better drugs with target specificity and developing new nanotechnologies.From pharmaceutical companies to related fields of applied research, the career options are unlimited. Being relatively new field in Pakistan,graduates can become a part of already started projects or take initiatives on their own.
