The Physics Department of the University of Otago was the first Physics Department established in New Zealand, and physics was a foundation discipline when the University opened in July 1871. Today, the Department embraces innovative teaching methods, promotes a vigorous research ethos, and is committed both to Physics as a discipline and to its applications. Our key objectives are to provide students with the highest quality education, and to produce research of international excellence.

We have a diverse range of research activities, from theoretical studies of ultracold atoms, to the fabrication of tiny electronic tags for tracking seabirds and other wildlife. We have attracted a talented group of post-doctoral researchers who work closely with senior academic staff, and a vibrant community of post-graduate students organise student oriented social and academic events.
