Engineering Physics

Engineering Physics – 050630 is a new specialty opened for the first time in Azerbaijan. Along with the fundamental knowledge of physics, it is intended to teach students the application of this knowledge in modern technology.

As a result of their knowledge and skills students of Engineering Physics are formed as highly qualified specialists able to apply mathematical methods, methods of theoretical physics, laws of physics and chemistry, computer technologies, precise description, structure of devices and objects, design characteristics, working principles, production technology, installation conditions, to solve practical problems.

The main areas of Bachelor's degree in 050630 – Engineering Physics are optics and laser physics, physical electronics, solid-state electronics, light engineering, applied nuclear physics, material physics and a number of other areas.

050630 - Students specializing in Engineering Physics are provided the knowledge stated below

Students of Engineering physics will also receive knowledge in fundamental, applied and engineering subjects. Depending on the focus area, students study advanced mathematics, physics, chemistry, solid state, lasers and semiconductors, nuclear and elementary particle physics, statistical physics and thermodynamics, engineering and computer graphics, control theory, electrical engineering and electronics, programmable logic controllers, strength of materials, theory of machines, along with modeling of physical processes:

  • optics, optoelectronics, optical materials and technologies, optoelectronic devices and systems, laser technologies, matter research, optical methods of information processing, lidars;
  • crystallography, physics of thin films and surfaces, technology of materials for solid-state electronics, micro- and nanoelectronics, fundamentals of nanotechnology, devices based on quantum effects;
  • light engineering, sources of light, photoelectronics, applied optics, fiber optics, optical measurement technology and materials, illumination of sources of light and energy parameters, light-emitting diodes and their application;
  • will have modern knowledge of nuclear reactor physics, methods and devices for ionizing radiation measurement, interaction of ionizing radiation with the matter, dosimetry and radiation safety, atomic energy devices, heat and mass-exchange on atomic energy devices, control and protection systems, material of nuclear technology and other disciplines.

Graduates, who have successfully completed the educational program, thanks to the received professional competencies will be able to identify, research and model new physical phenomena and regularities and on their basis be involved in the making and application of new technologies, equipment, devices and materials of various purposes in Engineering physics.

Graduates can work as physicists-technologists, engineers, physicists, circuit engineers, etc., in various areas of production and technical operation, research institutions.
