Chair of Physics

General description
Faculty of Mathematics and Applied Physics offers studies in technical physics in two specialisations:

  • Computer-Aided Diagnostic Systems (CADS) (intramural studies for B.Sc. degree).
  • Ecology of Energy Transformations (EET) (intramural studies for B.Sc. degree).

The studies last 3.5 academic years (7 semesters).
The goal of education in technical physics in the first specialisation (CADS) is to educate qualified users of modern measuring and diagnostic devices. The second specialization (EET) emphasis on ecology and renewable sources of energy in the modern economy. Graduates of these specialisations receive thorough knowledge within the core subjects (mathematics and physics), as well as selected technical disciplines (computer engineering, electronics, engineering graphics, automatics fundamentals, technical diagnostics, intelligent measurement systems, digital circuit engineering, and microprocessor systems).

Faculty of Mathematics and Applied Physics offers another studies program at the intersection of the engineering school and the medical sciences in medical engineering.

The studies last 3.5 academic years (7 semesters).
The main educational aim is to develop the skilled medical engineers to work with computer-aided diagnostic apparatus prepared to supervise the technical equipment in the process of their use in medical practice as well as specialists from the most recent trends and development in the field of medical technology, including computer modeling of anatomical structures.

Requirements to obtain the B.Sc. degree in the technical physics as well as in medical engineering are as follows: 1) completion of the courses included in programme (about 210 ECTS credits), 2) completion of industrial training, 3) preparation, submission, and to defend a B.Sc. thesis.
Our programmes fulfils the criteria recommended by the FEANI.

Admission requirements
Every year approximately 60 high school and vocational school graduates are admitted to participate in the B.Sc. programme at the Faculty of Physics. 
Polish students entering the higher education system are required to have completed 11 years of school education, passed the final exams to obtain the General Certificate of Education, and passed an entrance qualification procedure. As the official language of instruction at the University is Polish, all foreign candidates wishing to follow the complete schedule of courses have to prove their language competency. To facilitate this, applicants are offered one-year Polish courses in Łódź at any level of proficiency.
ECTS students do not have any special requirements besides those imposed by the SOCRATES Programme a Higher Education – Erasmus. For ECTS students, instruction and examination in English language can be allowed for individual courses with the Dean’s consent.

Educational and professional goals
The programme has been designed with the primary goal to familiarize students with physical phenomena used both in diagnostic methods and renewable sources of energy. Further, it provides students with the knowledge necessary to find, select, and retrieve information from a variety of different sources and to put it into practice. The completion of the programme gives students an in-depth comprehension of technical issues, and enables them to communicate effectively with engineers of other specialisations.

The ability to operate computer programmes for canvassing and processing of the measurement data, the skills needed to administer general purpose computer networks, as well as the knowledge of programming languages will allow the graduates to satisfy future job requirements.

The graduates of these specialisations will find employment in a variety of manufacturing enterprises, industrial plants, medical centres, specialist laboratories, and in a number of institutions of state administration.
Access to further studies

The graduates from the B.Sc. programme can continue their education in technical physics or medical engineering in order to receive an M.Sc. degree. They have the ability to take any lateral extension courses, as well as pursue post-graduate university studies in physics, applied physics (e.g. medical physics), and/or related disciplines.

Examination and assessment regulations
There are several methods of evaluation student’s achievements. Students have to be informed in advance about the ways of assessment and the dates of tests and examinations. The teacher can determine the mode of assessment, by choosing one of the following: written or/and oral examination, written assignment with oral discussion, student’s project, written test, and seminar. Assessment strategies depend on the teacher.

Final examinations
To grant the professional title of B.Sc. or M.Sc.  it is necessary to complete the corresponding study programme, to prepare and defend a B.Sc. or M.Sc. thesis. Bachelor or Master dissertation is a self-contained piece of work that includes the results of research into a particular field.
