Description of the Study Program

Graduates of the bachelor's degree in physics at FMFI UK will receive a physical education that will enable them to cope with the growing demands for graduates of this type of study at other schools in Europe and the world in further education (master's and doctoral studies), scientific institutions and finally in development centers in industry. The acquired knowledge and skills exceed the general knowledge in the field of physics. The theoretical and experimental basis of the study provides the graduate of the bachelor's degree in physics with broad knowledge, shapes his thinking (exactness, ability to abstract), helps him to get an idea of the complexity of problems and ways to solve them. The graduate will be able to apply physical procedures to common phenomena in everyday life, know how to understand them correctly, will be able to measure related physical quantities, statistically evaluate, process and interpret them.

The graduate is able to create simple theoretical models describing the behavior of various systems of living and non-living nature, as well as socio-economic systems. Can create computer simulation programs for simulation and optimization of physical, geophysical, biophysical, environmental, but also socio-economic phenomena. He is able to spread the latest physical knowledge in an understandable way in the general public. He is able to communicate with experts in other disciplines and be able to apply physical knowledge in an interdisciplinary team. He has the ability to control various physical and technological equipment, to work with basic software in the field of statistical data processing, spreadsheets, word processing, hypertext, graphical presentation and publication of results. And so he / she is ready for a successful master's degree in Slovakia or abroad.

The conversion study program is a four-year study program based in terms of content on the three-year study programme. In the first year, the students complete requirements of the conversion block, the next three years are identical to the three-year prpgramme. The program is created for high school graduates who do not have breadth and depth of knowledge required for successful start of bachelor studies in the three-year programme, especially for those who have not complete the final high school examinations in the profile subjects of the study program. In addition to the requirements of the three-year programme, students spend the introductory year by completing courses from the conversion block, which can fill the gaps in their knowledge and enable further successful study. The exact set of courses is determined by the guarantor of the study programme after evaluating existing knowledge of the student. After completing the introductory year, students continue according to the standard recommended study plan for the three-year study programme.

What to Expect

The study program of the bachelor's study of physics is characterized by considerable variability, which allows to take into account the individual needs and ideas of the student, it is possible to choose from compulsory and optional subjects in several blocks according to the study orientation planned by the student. The study program allows you to choose in the block "Physics-future specialization" introductory lectures from future master's programs in the field of physics. On the other hand, the student may focus on one specific aspect of physics in greater depth, for example by a wider choice in compulsory elective blocks. Compulsory subjects form a solid basis of experimental, general and theoretical physics, on which it is possible to build a specialized superstructure.

Final Thesis

With the bachelor's thesis, the student has to demonstrate the ability to independently acquire theoretical and practical knowledge and use them. The final thesis will be prepared by the student under the guidance of the thesis supervisor. The supervisor of the final thesis will prepare a written report on the final thesis and propose its evaluation. The final work is assessed by the opponent. The opponent will prepare a written report on the final thesis and propose its evaluation.

Graduates' Career Opportunities

Graduates of physics are expected to find employment in business development centers, either after continuing their studies at the next level or after completing their studies at the first level; in organizations where non-trivial applications of physics are used; in the educational system; in the public sector, in the development and applications of renewable energy sources, in transport, healthcare, ecology, geophysics, meteorology, nuclear safety, progressive technology centers such as nanotechnologies, laser technologies, etc. However, the main goal of the study of the physics program (1st degree) is to prepare for a master's degree in physics in the following areas:
Astronomy and astrophysics, Biophysics and chemical physics, Biomedical physics, Environmental physics, renewable energy sources, meteorology and climatology, Plasma physics, Solid state physics, Nuclear and subnuclear physics, Optics, lasers and optical spectroscopy, Theoretical physics and Earth physics.
