Abant İzzet Baysal University ECTS Information Catalog

General Description

History

AİBÜ Physics department has been started its activities in 1994-1995 academic year with 30 undergraduate students. Since 1996-1997 the language of education in our department is English. Our students attend 1 year of English preparation course and 4 years of undergraduate courses. Our department has also implemented the undergraduate programs in the Evening Program that all courses are offered during the night hours. On the other hand, our department has also graduate programs in both Master of Science and Ph.D studies in addition to our undergraduate program. Physics Department is under the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and it is aimed to specialize in high energy and particle physics, nuclear physics, solid state physics, atomic and molecular physics, mathematical physics, and general physics. In the department, there are 19 faculty members, one specialist, 9 research assistants and a secretary.

Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples

Graduates are mostly expected as being physicist in the research- development laboratories of the industrial corporations or in the fields of computing, defense, health care, telecommunications, energy sector. Students who are physics majors, upon graduation, will be prepared for graduate work, or for careers in teaching. A substantial fraction of registered students can use physics studies as a springboard to prepare themselves for admission in areas like medicine or engineering.

Access to Further Studies

Equivalent to domestic programs, the transition is possible. Side-branch or a double major facilities are available. The students have the right to pursue for M.S. and Ph.D. studies in and outside the department after graduation.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

Theoretical courses exams are generally performed as two midterms and one final exam supported with quizzes, homework, term paper, and in laboratories, laboratory work, oral presentations, reports, midterm, oral-written in the form of final exams and the evaluation and grading is performed under the framework of AIBU Directive of Exams.

Graduation Requirements

Completion of 143 local credits (240 ECTS) is essential with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.0/4.0. Students are expected to enrol 12 optional courses or more as elective(60 ECTS).
