(the purpose of the program, the structure of the program, the areas it is headed for, department possibilities)

The Undergraduate Physics program aims to train well-trained physicists for technical and professional fields in research institutes and industry.

The objectives of the undergraduate physics program,

  • To train students in science and mathematics to become professionals with knowledge and skills in order to understand physical systems,
  • Helping to improve students the ability to analyze, design and solve problems in physics and related disciplines,
  • To provide students the ability to make presentations, communicate in writing and verbally, access information from scientific sources, and work independently and as a team,,
  • To provide fundamental basis for graduate programs and lifelong learning.

For these purposes, after the infrastructure of classical physics was established in the first three semesters in the program, students take courses on modern physics from the fourth semester. Some of the last four semesters are courses such as quantum mechanics, solid state physics, electromagnetic theory, atomic and molecular physics. From the third semester, students have the opportunity to learn and learn many different areas of physics with the elective courses they prefer. Some of these elective courses are special relativity, renewable energy sources, optoelectronics, superconductivity, molecular modeling, and fundamental particles physics. Lessons are supported by modern educational materials.
