General Description



Physics M.Sc.


History


Since the second term of 1994-1995 academic year master program of our department has been continued its activities with courses and thesis given in in high energy and particle physics, nuclear physics, solid state physics, atomic and molecular physics, mathematical physics, and general physics. Since 1996-1997 the language of education in our department is English.


Qualification Awarded


Master's degree


Specific Admission Requirements


Admission requirements to graduate programs are announced by AIBU Natural Sciences Institute at the begining of each academic year. The application for admission to graduate programs must be done according to the graduate student directory of the Institute of Natural Sciences of AIBU.

Profile of The Programme


The object of the Master's program is to make students learn through scientific research, evaluation and coming to their own conclusions about what they learned. Masters Program allows that the students choose their field of speciality.


Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples


Graduates can continue their careers in Phd programmes due to their success. If they do not want to continue their careers in academic level, they are being mostly expected as being specialist physicist in the research- development laboratories of the industrial corporations or in the fields of computing, defense, health care, telecommunications, energy sector.


Access to Further Studies


Graduates can do PhD in the areas of science related to physics.


Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading


Students are required to take a midterm examination and/or complete other assigned projects/homework during the semester and, additionally are required to take a final examination and/or complete a final project for course evaluation. The letter grades of each courses is done with respect to the list given by the Graduate student directory of the Institute of Natural Sciences of AIBU. A student who was completed work on the thesis presents his thesis study to the Master's thesis jury composed of 3 or 5 members. A majority vote by the jury members as "acceptance", "rejection", or "correction" determines the outcome of the thesis or examination.


Graduation Requirements


At least 7 courses, not being less than 21 credits, a seminar course and thesis studies should be fulfilled in maximum four semester. Masters students must maintain a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of at least 3.00. Students, who complete the required course work and the seminar course but cannot complete the thesis work until the end of the fourth semester must complete the thesis work within maximum 2 additional semesters. Students with approved thesis by the Master's thesis jury will be awarded the Master's Diploma.

Facilities


The department shares the projector equipped classrooms and the computer classes, and has 12 research laboratories. In our research laboratories, there are electron microscopy, x-ray spectrometer, a closed-circuit cooling systems, thin film preparation system, measuring devices, power supplies, high temperature furnaces, Ovens, such as the latest system, as well as other small home appliances There are a variety of devices and supplies. Additionally there is a studying room for graduate students and canteens which students can utilize in their spare time in the faculty.
