Course-specific learning objectives

The educational process of the first-cycle degree course in Physics includes activities in the following areas:

Area of mathematics
rea of classical physics
Area of modern physics
Area of complementary disciplines Specific training objectives of each area

Area of Mathematics
The subjects taught in this area provide the basic knowledge of mathematical analysis, linear algebra and geometry and the mathematical knowledge necessary for understanding modern physics.

Classical physics area
The subjects taught in this area provide the fundamental knowledge of classical, analytical and statistical mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism and optics, both from a theoretical and experimental perspective. The latter activity comprises laboratory teaching and concerns the performance of experiments, the acquisition and statistical processing of experimental data.

Modern physics area
The subjects taught in this area provide the fundamental knowledge of quantum mechanics, and elements of nuclear and sub-nuclear physics and the structure of matter, as well as laboratory work involving experiments in modern physics.

Complementary disciplines area
The subjects taught in this area provide fundamental knowledge in general chemistry, basic computer science, numerical calculation and the English language. Included in this area are subjects of the student's choice for the completion of his or her interdisciplinary training, including the possibility of an internship in an external structure.

Teaching methods

The training objectives outlined above are essentially achieved through the following teaching methods: lectures, tutorials and laboratory activities. A web platform is available where individual lecturers can enter their own teaching material (notes, exercises, insights) and set up self-assessment tests of learning during the course.

Assessment of learning

The assessment of learning outcomes throughout the entire course of study is carried out by means of the following instruments: interviews, written tests, practical tests, laboratory reports and discussion of papers on the work carried out. In the Syllabus of the individual subjects, both the teaching methods and the specific assessment methods are detailed.
Verification of the ability to synthesise and the degree of study autonomy in the face of new problems is assessed by means of a final examination, structured as described in the Degree Course Regulations.
