The Faculty offers three programs where the students study for one of the following degrees:

  • Bachelor of Science
  • Specialist of Science
  • Master of Science

The Faculty gives two majors:

  • Physics
  • Astronomy

The students are enrolled into seven sections:

  • Management of Science and High Technologies
  • Computer-Aided Physics
  • Medical Physics, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Equipment
  • Research-and-Production Section
  • Teachers Section
  • Stellar Physics and Cosmology
  • Cosmic Geoinformation Technologies

The training is provided by the Departments of the Faculty in the following six specialties:

  • Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics – by the Department of Experimental Physics
  • Chemical Physics – by the Department of General and Chemical Physics
  • Thermal Physics of Disperse Systems and Physics of Low-Temperature Plasma – by the Department of Thermal Physics
  • Physics of Solid State and Solid-State Electronics – by the Department of Solid State Physics
  • Theoretical Physics – by the Department of Theoretical Physics
  • Astrophysics – by the Department of Astronomy

All the departments also offer Ph. D. courses and promote favorable conditions for those pursuing the Doctor of Science degree.

There are two Dissertation Councils where Ph. D. and doctoral theses in the following six specialties are defended:

  • 01.04.02 – Theoretical Physics
  • 01.04.05 – Optics and Laser Physics
  • 01.04.10 – Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics
  • 01.04.14 – Thermal and Molecular Physics
  • 01.04.17 – Chemical Physics, Physics of Combustion and Explosion
  • 04.03.02 – Astrophysics and Radio Astronomy

History Sketch

The Faculty of Physics was founded together with the University in1865. At that moment, it comprised two departments, the Department of Physics and Physiography and the Department of Astronomy. Experimental studies were carried out in the two rooms of the departments.

In1920, after implementation of a reform of the Higher Education System, the Faculty of Physics was merged with that of Mathematics to form a basis for the Physico-Mathematical Institute. In1921, the Institute was joined to the Institute of Public Education.

In1930, the Institute of Public Education was transformed into the Institute of Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry. When the University was reinstated in its status in1933, the Faculty renewed an active training of specialists at its newly-formed Departments of Experimental Physics, X–Ray Physics, and Theoretical Physics.

In1936, the Faculty of Physics and that of Mathematics were merged into the Physico-Mathematical Faculty.

Since1960, the Faculty of Physics has existed as a separate unit of the University.

Some of the outstanding scientists who used to work at the Faculty were F. N. Shvedov, M. A. Umov, A. V. Bogatskii, V. P. Tsesevich, V. V. Serdyuk..
