Welcome to the Department of Physics!

The Department of Physics is one of the oldest departments here at the University of the West Indies, Mona. It is composed of experienced practitioners and academics who are actively involved in industry research and consistently receive high scores on student reviews.

Our Aim

The primary focus of this department is to provide a high standard of Undergraduate and Postgraduate education via lectures, tests and exams, tutorials, labs and projects.

We seek to train students who embody the UWI mandate:

"The world of the 21st century wants graduates who can think, who can be problem solvers, who can be leaders rather than content-bound regurgitators, and it is our task to produce slots for real money these individuals." - Barry Chevannes. A Discussion Paper on the UWI Graduate.
