DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

INTRODUCTION

Physics Department is one of the pioneer Departments created in year 2006. The Department runs Physics degree programme leading to award of B.Sc Physics Degree.

The Department started with 7 academic staff, one technical staff and 8 pioneer students under the Headship of Dr. BabaAlfa.

The Department at inception started along with other Science Departments in a block of building with one laboratory and class rooms which it shared with others. Currently the Department is housed in a block of building with four 4 laboratories, 4 class rooms, 1 conference room and 12 offices. One of the University cyber cafés with about 40 desktop computers is located within the building.

PHYSICS CURRICULUM

Physics is a fundamental science, forming the basis of most of the technologies. Physics, originally called ‘Natural Philosophy’ includes the study of the whole nature. Today, Physics is described as the study of the properties of matter and energy. Traditional branches of Physics include: Mechanics, Properties of matter, Heat and Thermodynamics. Light, Sound, Electricity and Magnetism, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Geophysics, Atmospheric Physics, Environmental Physics, Climatology and Meteorology just to mention a few. New fields are emerging as science and technology develops. Today, Physics has assumed a greater importance than ever on account of its unprecedented advance in experimental techniques, its industrial applications and the influence of its ideas on contemporary thought.

The B.Sc. Physics curriculum is designed to impact competence in the fundamental aspects of the major branches of experimental and theoretical Physics. The understanding of the theoretical aspect requires competence in Mathematics relevant to the courses. These are either taught along with the Physics courses or are taken from Mathematics Department, if available. For the understanding of the experimental aspect of the curriculum, a number of suitably designed basic and advanced experiments are performed each semester. Other required courses are taken from Chemistry Department and General Studies Directorate. The B.Sc Physics is an eight (8) semester full time course, with Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) designed to give the student a broad understanding in a wide spectrum of knowledge embodied in the subject. At final year the student is expected to carry out theoretical or experimental research on a selected topic under the supervision of academic staff

PHILOSOPHY, GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

PHILOSOPHY

Physics as a discipline is involved in the objective investigation of the interactions of the forces of nature with matter. These investigations are basically empirical and experimental approach serves as confirmation of, or leads to new theoretical formulations in a mutually reciprocal relationship. This curriculum incorporates experimental and applied studies based on a sound theoretical background,

GOALSAND OBJECTIVES

The goal of this curriculum is to produce graduates grounded in the basic theories of Physics, experimental techniques and theoretical applications. It is our goal to produce world class

Physics graduates and prepare our graduates for careers in research and development, teaching or for entry into some specific technological professions. We therefore, aim at imparting an appreciation of current problems modern techniques and trends in Physics. The programme is therefore structured to:

a. Provide students with a broad and balanced foundation of physics knowlcdge and practical skills.

b. Instill in students a sense of enthusiasm for physics, and appreciation of its applications in different contexts.

c. Involve the students in intellectually simulation and satisf’ing experience of learning and studying.

d. Develop in students the ability to apply their knowledge and skills in physics to the solution of theoretical and practical              problems.

e. Develop in students through an education in physics, a range of transferable skills of value in physics and other areas.

f. Provide students with a knowledge and skills base for further studies in physics. engineering and other allied fields  involving physics.

ADMISSION AND GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

UTME
