Department of Physics, UWC has been associated with world wide premier research institutes such as iThemba, TRIUMF, CERN, etc. Nuclear physics group has been publishing high quality research work in various reputed journals. Department has a large number of Grads, Post-Grads, Ph.D. and Post Doctoral students. Many former students have been successfully serving in govt sector, private sector as well as in academic research. As a result, nuclear physics group has earned fabulous reputation among the international Nuclear physics committee.

Nuclear division has $$ Profs., $$ Associate Prof., $$ Assistant Prof., $$ Post Doctoral, $$ Ph.Ds actively contributing towards the high quality research at present. University Profs. along with the students have recently performed various nuclear physics experiments at world class labs such as: iThemba LABS, TRIUMF, CERN, Max-Plank, and many more.

In addition to that nuclear physics division also organizes world class conference every year know as “Tastes of Nuclear Physics” under the supervision of Prof. Orce.

Moreover, a world class detector facility is also coming up at the department one of the visionary project from Prof. Orce known as “Modern African Nuclear DEtector LAboratory”.  This facility has been funded by University of York, United Kingdom. Thus, a large number of students have been visiting University of York, UK under the student exchange program to get insight into the particle detectors.
