HOD Physics

Title(s)/ Position(s): / HOD PHYSICS

The Department of Physics, under the Faculty of Science is one of the pioneer Departments in the Faculty of Science. Lectures commenced in the Department in July 2012 with one Senior Lecturer (Dr. Chifu E. Ndikilar) and one Assistant Lecturer (Mal. Tasiu Zangina). From this modest beginning, the staff strength has grown in number and quality over the years. At inception, the department admitted no students and only offered servicing courses to other departments in the Faculties of Science and Agriculture. The first set of 33 Physics students was admitted in the 2013/2014 academic session.

Presently the Department of Physics runs a four year degree programme leading to the award of a B.Sc. (Hons) Physics Degree. There are two semesters in each academic session. The programme includes an industrial training programme of 6 months during the Second Semester of 300 level under the Students Industrial Work Experience (SIWES). At 400 level students undertake a one year (both semesters) project and one semester (First Semester) seminar on different aspects of Physics under the supervision of an Academic Staff. The department also offers Post Graduate Diploma (PGD), Masters Degree (M.Sc) and Doctorate Degree (Ph.D) with specializations in Radiation and Nuclear Physics, Material Science, Geophysics, Renewable Energy Physics and Theoretical Physics. The department has seventeen academic staff with various areas of specializations. The current Head of Department is Dr. A. B. Suleiman.
