Physics, one of the oldest academic disciplines, is a natural science concerned with the study of the general laws of the universe at all scales, from the smallest to the largest. The knowledge it provides is a basis for all scientific and technological progress.
Some of the physicists focus on theoretical knowledge, while others perform new experiments and design new instruments; from physical instrumentation are derived many of the new technologies which became an intrinsic part of the modern world. Lasers, nuclear reactors, medical imaging, even the internet are few examples.
The Faculty of Physics of the University of Bucharest is the largest one among similar faculties in Romania.
Research is organised in three departments, with focus on atomic and nuclear physics, condensed matter physics, biophysics, theoretical physics, lasers and photonics, atmospheric and planetary physics. The Faculty of Physics is located at Măgurele, a small town 7 km south-west of Bucharest, the most important scientific and technological center in Romania. Students may be involved in research projects in the laboratories of the four neighbouring national research institutes ( the National Institute for Materials Physics, “Horia Hulubei” National Institute of Physics and Nuclear Engineering, the National Institute for Laser, Plasma and Radiation Physics and the National Institute for Earth Physics). The above mentioned research institutes and the National Institute for Research and Development for Microtechnologies are our most important collaborative partners.
The Bachelor’s programme in Physics lasts three years. During first year, you will study basic subjects in mechanics, molecular physics & heat and electricity & magnetism. You will also perform practical works in lab on those subjects. More info about the Bachelor’s programme HERE.
The Master’s programs in Physics last two years and more info about the Master’s programs can be found HERE.
More than 60% of Physics graduates go on to study for a higher degree, leading to careers in academic or industry research. Physics graduates may be enrolled as researchers at research and development departments, as technical consultants, as teachers in science education. Some of them develop careers in finance and business, based on their analytical and problem-solving skills acquired while studying Physics.
History of the faculty
The year 1864 marks the beginning of higher education in physics in Bucharest, by decree of the reorganization of higher education, so the University founded Faculty of Science. In 1948 the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics emerges from the Faculty of Science.1962 is the year when, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics is separated in Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics and Faculty of Physics . Starting with 1974 the last one moves into the new campus in Magurele, together with the the Central Institute of Physics forming the National Platform of Physics.
