Overview

Department of Physics is established in 22 January 2004 with the 2003-2004/7 numbered Senate decision and YOK approval dated 11 May 2004, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Taner Bulat, as the fourth department of the Faculty of Science and Letters. It started education with a total number of 31 students, 20 students with a scholarship and 11 with tuition fee in 2004. In 2005-2006 education year, the Department added Prof. Dr. Ventsislav Dimitrov, Researcher Ertugrul Bolcal and Physicist Hande Ozer to its staff.
Prof. Dr. Atilla Ozalpan, Prof. Dr. Narcin Palavan Unsal and Prof. Dr. Cimen Atak from Halic University Molecular Biology and Genetics Department in 23 November 2006, Ass. Doc. Dr. Atok Olgun in 7 December 2006 and Researcher Damla Arisan in 9 November 2006 have joined the Department and conducted the process of establishing a Department for Molecular Biology and Genetics in our university.

Programme structure

In our department; As physics as a science is taught, how and where this knowledge can be used is also of concern. Our students learn to use and program computers, receive basic electronics besides thefundamental physics education. Our students can attend to a double major or a subspecialty program with Mathematics and Computer Department or can attend to a sub-specialty program with Molecular Biology and Genetics Department. They can also complete necessary courses in education to be a high school teacher Our graduates can work in anywhere where physical measurements and analysis are required, such as research and development departments of various institutions and organizations. In addition, our graduates who aim to be scientists, or who prefer to specialize in particular fields of physics can receive education in graduate level. Our students can also benefit from the laboratories of Electronics and Computer Sciences Departments besides those of the Physics Department. Great importance to professional foreign language (English) is given. Foreign language courses are compulsory for six semesters. Our students can receive education from the partner universities abroad, within the framework of SOCRATES / ERASMUS program, within a certain time limit without losing a semester in their universities.
The research in the department is focused on astrophysics, chaos and dynamical systems, molecular physics and molecular spectroscopy, theoretical physics, and x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy.

Career opportunities

Physics Department students can have “double major” or “double minor” with Mathematics-Computer Department or double minor program with Molecular Biology and Genetics Department.
Our graduates can serve in various organizations and companies, in research and development laboratories and at any place that measurement and physical analysis are necessary. In addition, graduate programs are available for those who aim to become a scientist or to specialize in certain areas of physics, including astrophysics, atomic and molecular physics, and matematical physics.
