Brief introduction of the Department
The Department of Physics, Electronics and Earth Sciences of the College of Natural and Applied Sciences was headed at inception by Prof. M. K. Fasasi who was on one year sabbatical leave from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. After the expiration of his sabbatical leave, the Department was coordinated by Mr. A. Yusuf, while Prof. M. K. Fasasi was still assisting in the smooth running of the Department. Mr. H. S. Bolarinwa was appointed in February, 2011 as the Coordinator of Department. Prof M. K. Fasasi is also still assisting in the running of the activities of the Department.
The Department has registered thirty two students since the inception of the University on 14th January, 2008. Seven students were registered in 2007/08 academic session, two students in the 2008/09 academic session, six students in the 2009/10 academic session, two students in 2010/11 academic session, twelve students in 2011/12 session and two students in 2012/13 session
The Department of Physics, Electronics and Earth sciences currently runs programme in PHYSICS WITH ELECTRONICS. This programme enjoys FULL ACCREDITATION. Other programmes to be run by the Department from the commencement of the 2013/ 2014 session include:
The Department has a well furnished, equipped laboratory and workshop for teaching and research.
Philosophy, Aims and Objectives of the Programme
a. To provide students with a broad, balanced knowledge and practical skills in their programme.
b. To instil in students a sense of enthusiasm in their chosen programme, and appreciation of its applications in different contexts.
c. To involve the students in intellectually simulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying.
d. To develop in students the ability to apply their knowledge and skills to the solution of theoretical and practical problems in their chosen programme
e. To develop in students through an education in Physics with electronics, Geology and Geophysics a range of transferable skills of value in their programme and other areas.
f. To provide students with knowledge and skills base for further studies in Physics with electronics, Geology and Geophysics or multi-disciplinary areas involving their programme.
The entry requirements shall be at least credit level passes in five subjects including English Language, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry to form the core subjects with credit in one other relevant science subject at the Senior Secondary School Certificate or its equivalent. In addition, an acceptable pass in the University Matriculation Examination (UME) into 100-level is required.
Candidates with two A level passes (graded A-E) at the Advanced Level in one or more relevant subjects (Biology, Botany, Chemistry, Geography, Mathematics and Physics) may undertake the three – year degree programme into 200-level.
All Bachelors honours degree students in Physics with electronics are expected to develop the following abilities and skills:
a. Regime of Subject Knowledge
Cognitive abilities and skills relating to solution of problems in Physics and Physics related disciplines.
b. Competencies and Skills
Practical skills relating to the conduct of laboratory and industrial work in electronics.
c. Behavioral Attitudes
General skills relating to non-subject specific competencies, communication, ICT knowledge, interpersonal, organization skills and ethical standards.
Graduates of Physics with electronics are expected to have the ability to apply knowledge and skills to solving theoretical and practical problems in Physics and electronics in relation to national and societal problems
Requirement for graduation
The mimimum number of credits for the award of B.Sc in Physics with electronics for UTME students is 156 credit units, while that of direct entry students is 123 credits.
