The Physics Section

The Physics Section at the University of Geneva provides a lively environment where students, lecturers and researchers meet on a daily basis and work closely together.

The level of research and teaching in the Physics Section is excellent, and is highly competitive in Switzerland, Europe and across the world. UNIGE is currently in 59th position worldwide (out of 20,000) in the University of Shanghai’s classification (2019), and the physics Section as a standalone is ranked in 36th place. Thanks to the outstanding quality of research at world level, the university offers a highly international and open environment, where the atmosphere is conducive to discussion and debate and generating innovative ideas.

The teaching programmes run by the Physics Section offer a comprehensive range of specialisations, with a particular focus on new applications of fundamental physics.
