# Physics

## General information

The Bachelor's programme in Physics allows students to get general education in physics and mathematics. Graduates are familiar with basic experimental and theoretical physics and prepared to study in the Master's study programme in Physics.

The study of physics opens the way to understanding basic concepts, relations and equations of physics, covered in the four semesters of general physics course, it strengthens the student's ability to solve problems in the classical fields of physics. The four-semester long theoretical physics course allows students to get acquainted with the main fields of modern theoretical physics (theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, etc.); it also contributes to the development of skills needed for solving elementary problems in these fields of physics. Laboratory exercises prepare students for independent experimental research and they cultivate their abilities to analyze the measurements, estimate the corresponding experimental uncertainties, and interpret the results. Within several seminars and especially within the Bachelor's thesis research project, the students learn to present and discuss the results of their own research.

### A successful graduate is able to

- understand the basic notions, relations and equations covered in the four-semester general physics course, and solve problems in the corresponding fields of physics
- show knowledge in the fields of modern theoretical physics covered in the four semesters of theoretical physics course and solve elementary problems in these fields of physics
- perform simple physical experiments, analyze their results, estimate the corresponding experimental uncertainties, and interpret the results using knowledge obtained in the theoretical courses
- present results of her/his own research and participate in the discussion thereof

## Graduate employment

The graduates of this study programme are prepared to study for the Master's degree in Physics. Considering the relatively universal character of physics education, they will also find good employment opportunities in various institutions conducting basic and/or applied research, and also in positions not directly connected to physics, where they can use their physics, mathematics and computer skills and the ability to combine them, developed within the study programme of Physics.
