INSTITUTE OF PHYSICS
Teaching

The staff takes part in the education of physics teachers and research physicists and they provide the physics courses for the students of the Faculty of Science. Starting from 1990 in addition to the introductory courses and laboratory practices (6 semesters) a selection of specialized curricula are offered in astrophysics, biophysics,  molecular physics, particle physics, solid state physics, materials physics and statistical physics. In 1993 regular Ph.D. programs started in three main branches of physics. The students having completed the 10-semester curriculum receive a degree equivalent to M.Sc. Individual curricula for English-speaking students are currently offered upon request.

M. Sc. training (for students of physics, physics and engineering, informatics and physics, astronomy, biology, cartography, chemistry, geophysics, geology, mathematics, meteorology)

M. Ed. training (for students of  physics, technique, biology, chemistry, environmental studies, informatics)

B. Sc. training (for students of applied physics)

B. Ed. training (for students of physics)
