The Department of Physics in Lund is a cooperative organization for nearly 300 scientists and educators and technical and administrative personnel. Main goals are to expand the understanding of physics, its applications and to share scientific progress to new generations. The department also teaches fundamental physics to over one thousand students each year. Beside offering courses and a master's programme in pure physics, it also provides physics education for the engineering programmes at the engineering faculty.
