  • HISTORY OF THE PROGRAMME/SUB-DISCIPLINE
    The B.Sc. Physics programme started in the 2002/2003 session. The last head of Physics Department of the Polytechnic Calabar, Mr. B. E. Bassey was the pioneer Acting Head of Department. The department inherited the facilities of the Physics Department of the then Polytechnic, Calabar. It started with sixteen members of academic staff and thirteen members of technical staff. There were six administrative staff. After the tenure of Mr. B. E. Bassey ( 2002-2004) the successive heads of Dept. were Mr. N.E Offiong (2004-2005), Dr. A. B. Udoimuk (2005-2006), Dr. Michael U Onuu (2006-2007), Mr. I. N Mbuk (2007-2009), Dr. E. O. Obi (2009-2013) and Dr. I.O. Ewona (2013 till date). Presently there are 16 lecturers, 1 graduate assistant, 6 technologists, 2 technical staff and 3 administrative staff.

    The first intake had nine (9) students. The number increased to thirty (30) in 2003/2004 academic session. The number in 2004/2005 was sixty (60), in 2005/2006 (75) students, and in 2006/2007 (84) students, in 2007/2008 (38), in 2008/2009 (60), in 2009/2010 (79), 2010/2011 (94) and (89) in 2011/2012 students where admitted.

    The Department has recently been given accreditation to admit post graduate students leading to the award of post graduate diploma in Physics and Master’s degrees in Nuclear Physics, Geophysics and Solid State Electronics.

    VISION OF THE DEPARTMENT
    To establish a department with adequately qualified and motivated staff, engaged in high quality teaching and research, for the production of Physics graduates that can compete with their peers anywhere in the world.

    MISSION OF THE DEPARTMENT
    To produce well trained graduates and researchers in Physics, equipped for active participation in socio-economic development.

    PHILOSOPHY
    The Philosophy of the Department is anchored on a basic fact “that every student of the Department is capable of becoming a Physicist if provided with sound theoretical and Practical training and skills in a conducive learning environment”.

    GOALS/OBJECTIVE OF THE DEPARTMENT
    The goals/objectives of the department are:
    1. To educate its own students as Physicists capable of conducting research and development in Physics and related disciplines.
    2. To train students to acquire knowledge and techniques necessary for industries and other production sectors of the economy and research industries.
    3. To equip its students with knowledge and practical skills for fundamental research essential for technological progress in our modern world.
    4. To provide service courses to students from the Faculties of Engineering, Science, Education, Environmental Science and Medical Science.
  • ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
    Admission into the undergraduate degree programme of the Physics Department is as follows:
    UTME Candidates are admitted into a four-year degree programme. Admission requirements include; credit level passes in SSCE/GCE O/L/NECO, which must include Physics, Mathematics, English Language, Chemistry and any other science subject in not move than two sittings. In addition, all candidates must have acceptable pass in UME.

    CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
    The curriculum aims at producing Scientific and Technical manpower of various levels, which will be useful in industries, Government, Educational Institutions and in Research Laboratories. The curriculum is designed to provide opportunity for specialization in both Pure and Applied aspects of Physics.

    STUDENTS WELFARE
    a. The students are encouraged to approach the Head of Development with all their grievances inducing all their academic grievances. The Head of Development is duty bound to listen and solve the problems to the best of his ability.
    b. There are four academic advisers in the Development. Each academic adviser is assigned to advice students in different academic sessions.

    EXAMINATION
    a. Examination questions are set by the course lecturers and submitted the Head of Development then assigns for the questions to be moderated by senior academic within the Head of Development for non degree examination. The degree exams are moderated by our external examiners. At least two lecturers are assigned to invigilated course with at least one attendant. Quite often than note, the results are really and issued to student one month after the examination

  • ADMINISTRATION IN GENERAL OF PROGRAMME/SUB-DISCIPLINE/DISCIPLINE

    Personnel Administration
    a. Organization Structure (Use Chart if Necessary)
    The head o department is the administrative head. The Chief Technologist supervises the Technical staff and they report to him (see chart). The administrative staff report directly to the Head of Department.

    b. How Staffs are Involved in the Decision-making Process and in General Administration
    Regular Departmental meetings provide a forum for the involvement of staff in decision making.

    c. Policy and Practice on Staff Development
    Members of staff, especially academic staff, apply for further studies which is usually part time or full-time. The University Sponsors staff on full-time staff development. An academic adviser is appointed for each year. The University organizes internal workshop/conferences in furtherance of the above.
