Qualification Requirements and Regulations

The study period in the Physics Department is 4 years. Students need to successfully complete 240 ECTS credits from compulsory and elective courses in the education programme and have an average of 2.00.

Profile of The Programme

The Department of Physics consists of Solid State Physics, Atom and Molecul Physics, Nuclear Physics, General Physics and High Energy and Plazm Physics. The purpose of the Physics Department is to teach the analysis and development of principles, methods and systems of physics in accordance with the rules and regulations of Turkish National Education and their mutual relations and to give education on the application of the principles and methods in scientific and technological fields. For this purpose, a good physicist with a modern level of scientific thinking skills and research capabilities, cogniscant of the practice of his/her profession, respectful of the human rights and ethical values, beneficial to self, family, nation and humanity is aimed at.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples

Physics has a broad application since it is closely related to mathematics, biology, social sciences and economics. Graduates have a wide range of work oppurtunities in the public and private sectors. Graduates may work as physics teachers in secondary education institutions and courses if they graduate from a secondary education teaching certificate programme. Graduates may also work as a teacher in fields of statistics, astronomy and space sciences if they are seen to be suitably qualified by the Ministry. Some physicists work in public institutions like TAEK, DİE, MTA, TEK, DSİ and some work in private institutions, such as computer programmer, controller, actuarial specialist and auditor. A successful university graduate is usually appointed to Lecturer and Research Assistant positions.
