The Department of Physics was founded in 1970, at the same time as the School of Physics & Mathematics and the operation of the University of Ioannina, as an independent University. The Department is currently housed in buildings Φ2 and Φ3, located in the western side of the University campus, about 4 km away from the Ioannina city centre.
The Department’s personnel consists of 44 teaching faculty members, 5 research faculty members, 6 technical staff members, and 6 administrative staff members. The Department hosts around 1600 undergraduate students, 100 postgraduate students and 30 PhD students.
The Department’s purpose is both to provide its students high-quality theoretical education and practical training in Physics and other related fields, and to conduct top-level scientific research.
This Undergraduate Course has a duration of 4 years and leads to a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics. It includes 30 core modules covering the basics of the field, as well as 60 elective modules covering a wide range of specialized subject areas. The Department also offers the possibility of postgraduate study, covering a wide range of subject areas, by offering five Postgraduate Courses leading to a Master’s and/or PhD degree.
