Bachelor's Degree - Faculty Of Scıence And Letters

General Information

Physics department began its undergraduate program as a part of Faculty of Basic Sciences founded in 1976. The name of the department then was "Physics and Space Sciences" and the graduates were awarded the title "physics engineer". After a rearrangement of laws regarding the universities in 1981, the name of the department was changed to "Physics Department" and the department was reorganized to have graduates educated in Physics. Education towards M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees are carried out under the Institute of Natural and Applied Sciences. After a two-year delay the department began to accept undergraduate students in the fall semester of academic year of 2017-2018 where the medium of instruction is Turkish. The previous two programs where in one the education is in Turkish and in the other 30% of the courses are taught in English are also continuing concurrently with the new program.
