Bachelor of General Physics

Overview

The Physics department is one of the main Science departments for presenting the Physics bachelor’s degree. Besides, the study itself serves all the scientific fields in all colleges. It’s the base of natural Science, and the main reason behind developing it through the last centuries, which in turn opened the door for achieving great developments in all the basic and applied Science majors.

Objectives

As a result of curriculum required for the physics program, graduates will:

  • Appreciate the role of science in society and the historical development of physics in the ongoing quest to discover the structure of the universe.

  • Gain an understanding of the basic principles and the experimental basis of the various fields of physics and the logical relationships of the various fields.

  • Become capable problem solvers using techniques that require mathematical skills, conceptual and mathematical models, order of magnitude estimates and an understanding of limiting cases.

  • Develop competence in designing, constructing and using laboratory instruments and to draw valid conclusions from experimental data.

  • Develop competence in using computers for computation, data acquisition, numerical control, device development and information acquisition and processing.

Improve written and oral technical communication skills
