Physics Undergraduates Secure Top Graduate Placements

Theoretical High Energy Physics/String Theory/Gravity is considered to be the most competitive field in terms of graduate admissions with world's brightest young minds competing to enter very few places at top universities in the elite discipline. LUMS undergraduate students specializing in the field have continued to secure best placements. This year, Ali Shehper got fully funded PhD scholarship from UT Austin, ranked among the top ten string theory/gravity programmes led by the Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg, while Ibrahim Shehzad received various offers including from Stony Brook, a top ranked programme in string theory, Maryland, UCD, USC and Penn State. Ibrahim will first be joining the Perimeter Institute at Waterloo, Canada, the leading upcoming institute in theoretical physics, for an accelerated specialized 10 month Master’s programme on full-scholarship. Ahsan Khan, a physics research assistant, also got fully funded PhD scholarship from UT Austin and Rutgers. Usama Javed Mirza, another LUMS physics major, has been admitted to Columbia University on the Fulbright scholarship.


Lums Faculty Publishes In Nature Materials

Dr. Ata Ulhaq, Assistant Professor, Department of Physics, Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering, Lahore University of Management Sciences, together with Dr. Evgeny Checkhovich from the University of Sheffield have performed important experiments demonstrating the energy distribution of nanoscale spin systems. Their work addresses some fundamental aspects of these spin systems and the results have been published in the prestigious Nature Materials, a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Nature Publishing Group with a wide readership including scientists, in both academia and industry involved in either developing materials or working with materials-related concepts.


Smart Physics With Smart Video and Motion Sensors


The Physics Department at the School of Science at the University of Jordan (UJ) organized a motivational lecture on "Smart Physics with Smart Video Analysis and Motion Sensors", delivered by Dr. Muhammed Sabieh Anwar of LUMS, Pakistan, who was visiting Jordan, invited by HRH Princess Sumaya bint El Hassan to participate in the World Science Forum 2017.
