The objective of the postgraduate programme in Physics is to promote research and knowledge in the areas of physics.

Description of Physics

Advertisement

Duration: The minimum period of study for full-time students is three (3) academic semesters and the maximum period of study is eight (8) academic semesters.

A deep understanding of current and new physical principles comes through the creation of theoretical models and, of course, their experimental verification. The objective target is the combination of all these theories and the understanding of the physical world. The results of these efforts are the promotion of new knowledge, which can be used in order to improve the standard of living. Electronic devices, telecommunications, artificial fibers, lasers and detectors are some of the technological applications. Also, solutions to many problems such as environmental pollution, the discoveries of new energy sources, and the protection from physical catastrophes are found through progress and achievements in fundamental and applied physics.

Postgraduate physics students can be employed in regional industry or in high technology companies; they can become researchers/teachers in research centres/universities; or, they can become teachers in secondary schools.

Since the study of physics not only provides knowledge in the field but also offers a unique and efficient way of solving problems, postgraduate students in physics are usually employed in other disciplines.

The research interests of the Department focus on the following areas:

  1. Theoretical and Experimental Nuclear Physics
  2. Theoretical and Experimental High Energy Physics
  3. Photonic, Lasers and Optoelectronics
  4. Solid State Theoretical and Experimental Physics
  5. Theoretical and Computational Biophysics

Course Content

Starting September 1999 the Department gives five (5) graduate core courses and a number of special courses and a course of specialization. Aim of the programme is the research development of graduate students as well as the further contribution to the establishment of a research tradition in the Department and the University. At the end of the graduate studies Ph.D. or Master Degree are awarded (the Ph.D. requires an original dissertation).

Requirements for Physics

The criteria for assessment of postgraduate candidates are the following:

  1. Applicants must have a university degree, awarded by an accredited institution in the country where it operates, or a degree evaluated as equivalent to a university degree by the Cyprus Council for the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications (KYSATS). Individuals who will be awarded a University degree or Graduation certificate fulfilling the criteria of the application requirements by the end of the week that precedes the registration week will also be eligible to submit an application form.
  2. Academic background in the appropriate discipline and grades in other related degrees.
  3. Letters of recommendation.
  4. Personal interview at the discretion of each department.
  5. Written examination at the discretion of each department.

Work Experience for Physics

No work experience is required.
