Why physics?

Why is physics worth studying?Physics seeks to study and explain the most fundamental processes of Nature. Their study make it possible to understand the most general and universal laws governing the world around us; it allows us to learn its structure. Without its research we would not have mobile phones, computers, HD television, LCD and plasma screens, etc. Physics is the foundation of modern technologies. The study of physics is a wonderful exercise in thinking both scientific and practical. The acquired abilities to solve problems are sought for at the job market The global development of modern technologies guarantees employment also abroad. Ministry of Science and Higher Education placed Physics in a "studies in demand" project for 2009/2010 which offers high scholarships to motivate people to begin studies. Why study it here at NCU? 

  • NCU is a wee-recognized center for research in solid state, nuclear, molecular, and medical physics, biophysics, optoelectronics and  i microelectronics and in many areas of theoretical physics: quantum informatics, mathematical physics, quantum chemistry, and chaos physics. It also carries out research into the application of luminescence in research on physical-chemical processes vital to biology and medicine.
  • Numerous high grants (mostly form European sources) are a testimony to the high level of NCU-based research.
  • The Institute of Physics houses the National Laboratory for Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (FAMO), where Bose-Einsteina condensate was obtained for the first time in this part of the world (East of the Elbe River), and three young Doctoral students have measured the ‘shape’ of a photon. This is the site where you can see experiment on photon entanglement, teleportation of quantum states, or stoppage of light.
  • In 2009 a EU sponsored Center for Quantum Optics will be built at the Institute of Physics.
  • A student has a range of choices as to their specialization: medical physics, experimental physics, theoretical physics, optoelectronics and microelectronics and teaching specializations.
  • Everyday contact with a computer, formally indicated on a diploma, and
    state of art equipment make it possible for one to acquire
    qualifications valued at the more and more difficult job market.
  • Physics at NCU, as an academic program, has the approval of the State Accreditation Committee.

What can I do after graduation? NCU Physics graduates find employment in:

  • industry as specialists in electronics and services,
  • in labs as workers and as staff of research centers introducing modern technologies,
  • schools as physics teachers,
  • specialized hospitals, clinics, etc
  • banking and finance; because of their superb computer skills and critical thinking skills
  • wherever modeling of processes is necessary
