School of Natural Sciences and Medicine ILIA STATE UNIVERSITY



Study language: Georgian

Amount of allocated ECTS: 240 ECTS

Awarded qualification/degree:  Bachelor of Physics

Admission Type: Individual Admission

About the program:

The undergraduate program in Physics at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Medicine was renewed in 2020 to improve the learning process.

Within the program, the student will study the basics of classical mechanics, electromagnetism, atomic and nuclear physics, and astronomy. Students will be able to understand the most commonly used analytical and numerical methods, study the basic experimental methods of mathematics, computing, modeling, and physics essential for career development in the field.

Aim of the program:

The program aims to equip the graduate with extensive knowledge of the basic principles of physics, laws, and basic mathematical aspects of natural sciences and to develop basic research skills in one of the fields of physics (fundamental physics, astronomy, atmospheric and near cosmic physics, biophysics, applied physics).

The program is aimed at developing oral and written communication, critical analysis, argumentation, individual and teamwork skills in Georgian and English.

Main areas of study:

A physics student has the opportunity to learn from one of the following five components:

  • Fundamental Physics
  • Astronomy
  • Physics of the atmosphere and near space
  • Biophysics
  • Applied Physics

Learning outcomes:

Graduate will:

  • Know the basic principles and laws of physics (including classical mechanics, electromagnetism, statistical dynamics and thermodynamics, wave phenomena and material properties, quantum, atomic, and atomic nucleus physics);
  • have basic knowledge in one of the fields of physics - fundamental physics, astronomy, physics of the atmosphere and near space, biophysics, applied physics;
  • Be able to solve a problem of physics of appropriate complexity using analytical and numerical methods used in natural sciences;
  • Be able to process and analyze data obtained from experiments/observations;
  • Use relevant computer programs, including targeted packages, for data analysis/processing, physical system simulation, and information retrieval;
  • Be able to identify and formulate a research problem within the chosen component of physics, conduct research using approaches and methods specific to the field, adhering to academic and professional ethics according to pre-defined recommendations/instructions;
  • Be able to critically analyze information, synthesize and form reasoned conclusions;
  • Be able to graphically visualize data, communicate effectively orally and in writing on issues related to the field of physics;
