INTRODUCTION

 

Welcome to the Department of Physics, Congratulations for choosing such an exciting and challenging program of study! If you like mathematics, computing, experiments, and wish to contribute to the future progress of humankind, the exciting intellectual adventure of physics at the University of Medical Sciences, Ondo state will maximize your career options. Studying Physics is a very effective way to develop imagination, as well as critical and abstract thinking, whether or not you aspire to a career in science or technology. In addition, it is important to develop a solid understanding of principles that govern science and technology, so that as a society of well-informed citizens, we can make rational decisions on important issues, even as the pace of scientific and technological development continues to increase dramatically.

 

 

The Department of Physics offers a 4year programme leading to the award of the B.Sc. Degree in two options in Physics, namely: Physics Electronics and Medical Physics. The Department was one of the foundation departments established under the Faculty of Science at the inception of the University as a servingdepartment with the basic policy to teach Pure Physicsand began offering theprogramme of B. Sc. (Hons) Physicsin 2016/17 academic session.The organization of the department started with five members of Staff - Prof. A. M. Arogunjo, (Sabbatical Leave) who was the pioneer Head of Department and the current pioneer Dean of Faculty of Science, Messrs A.S. Adebayo and Chukwulobe as two permanent staff, Drs R. A. Adenodi and R.T. Akinnubi as an adjunct staff. Dr. R.A. Adenodi is the current Acting Head of Department.



OBJECTIVES

 

The specific aims of the Programme are to:

1. Provide the opportunity for each student to assimilate and apply the body

  of knowledge required by a chosen discipline through a clearly defined  

  sequence of courses.

2. Develop each student’s ability to think critically and to communicate  

   effectively through creative and challenging educational experiences.

3. Encourage each student to become a well-rounded, educated person

    through exposure to other disciplines within the university.

4. Contribute to the greater body of knowledge in specialized disciplines

    through research, scholarship and professional endeavours.

5. Produce self-reliant graduates for self-employment in various areas of

    Physics.

 The specific learning objectives that all Physics Majors are expected to

  know by graduation are the:

Ø  fundamentals of the main branches of physics.

Ø  broad background for further work in other sciences, such as materials sciences, geophysics, meteorology, radiology, medicine, biophysics and environmental studies.

Ø  necessary background for research and development in all areas of theoretical and applied physics.

Ø  attract high international employment profile in the field of Applied Physics; and

Ø  produce self - reliant   graduates  for  self -employment  in  various  areas  of  Applied Science.

 

Career Opportunities

The programme of the Department is designed to give students the required academic and practical background in electronics, health physics and radiation, materials sciences, astronomy, computer science, geophysics, meteorology, biophysics and environmental studies. The products of this programme can be easily employed in the communication, aviation, healthcare, defence, energy and oil industry as well as research laboratories. They can also be self-employed.



PROGRAMME

To graduate in the 4-year Bachelor of Science degree programme in Physics (Physics Electronics option), students must have successfully completed a minimum of 165 Credit Units, 124 of which must come from the student’s discipline while Medical Physics Option are also required to complete a minimum  of 165 Credit units for graduation 119 of which must come from the student’s discipline.
