There are adequate lecture rooms, fully equipped laboratories, a well-organised library, 51 academic staff members and 25 members of technical and administrative staff.


An average of 1000 hundred undergraduate and 150 postgraduate students currently study at the Physics Department. Our undergraduate programme is based upon compulsory core courses on classical and modern Physics, in addition to extensive training on calculative tools and methodology. Optional courses organised in thematic course groups allow students to expand their studies to related scientific branches, such as Astrophysics, Meteorology-Climatology, Environmental Studies, Electronic Technology, Telecommunications, Photonics, New Materials.

For further studies and specilisation, 5 postgraduate programmes are currently on and available.

Work prospects
