Physics Department trains students to professional personnel who know basic theory and methods of physics, have desirable mathematics foundation, computer programming knowledge and experimental skills, are capable of doing physics related education, research, technology development and management. The students will be also creative in analyzing and solving problems.
The Department sets up two Specialties: Physics and Applied Physics. The students may choose any specialty freely in their fourth school year.
Based on the idea of” General Knowledge Education” to cultivate the undergraduates students, the Department pays special attention to roundly promote the students comprehensive quality. In order to widen their academic view field, the Department opens some inter-discipline courses as part of “elective specialty courses”, such as computational physics, physical biology, economic physics ,etc. The students can also take the elective courses opened by other departments. Meanwhile, each sophomore is encouraged to join the professor’s research group to take part in the research in academic frontiers or inter-fields.
The total number of credits required by the teaching plan is 140, which including 42 credits for common compulsory courses, 8 credits for common elective courses, 28 credits for fundamental specialty courses, 20 credits for elective specialty courses, as well as 42 credits for compulsory specialty courses(including 6 credits for thesis).
The Physics Department sets up three subsidiary disciplines : theoretical physics, condensed matter physics and optics.
Basically the Department adopts the “one to one” mode of cultivating graduate students to insure the teaching quality, stressing the ability promotion for new knowledge acquisition and innovative research.
The total number of credits required is 31, including 10 credits for common courses, 6 credits for two basic course, 5 credits for two specialty courses, 8 credits for two elective specialty courses , as well as 2 credits for one across-subject course
③Basic cultivation requirements
Each master candidate should work out his/her cultivation program under the guidance of one of experienced advisers within 3 months.
Each master candidate should take the TA job of fundamental physics courses for one semester as teaching practice, the job should be comprehensively appraised by the related lecture giver.
Each graduate student should take the course “frontier colloquium on physics and related subsidiary subjects” .The students’ written reports should be checked up. He or she is required to understand some of the important fields to lay down the necessary foundation for subsequent work on physics or other inter-disciplines.
Each master degree applicant should work out his/her thesis proposal in third semester and should be mid-term checked up in the fourth semester. The advising group should be responsible for checking the applicants’ comprehensive ability, progress of their thesis work and work attitude.
It is required for degree application that the applicant should provide certain number of papers published by the SCI academic periodicals as asked by the Department.
The adviser is responsible for the cultivation.
It is required that under the adviser’s guidance each candidate can promote actively his/her ability to acquire the new knowledge and to be engaged in innovative researches.
Each doctoral candidate should finish the required common degree courses as what follows:
A: Program for regular doctoral candidates
The adviser is asked to determine the necessary courses that the candidate should take. Four courses are required, one of which should be a discipline-across course.
B. Program for direct doctoral candidates
At least 9 credits for 3 fundamental degree courses; 9 credits for 3 compulsory specialty courses; 8 credits for 3 elective specialty courses, one of which should be subject-across course.
③Basic cultivation requirements
Each candidate is asked to work out the cultivation scheme under the adviser’s guidance within 3 months.
The candidate should finish his/her thesis proposal under the adviser’s guidance in about one year.
Each direct doctoral candidate must take teaching practice for one semester .
Each candidate should take the course “frontier colloquium on physics and related subsidiary subjects”. The candidates’ written reports should be checked up . The candidate is required to understand deeply some of the important fields to lay down the necessary foundation to be engaged in the research work on physics or other inter-disciplines.
In second semester the candidate should work out the thesis proposal, and should be mid-term checked up in third semester . The adviser group should be responsible to roundly check up the applicant’s comprehensive ability, progress of thesis work and work attitude. The direct doctoral candidate is asked to work out the proposal in third semesters and to be checked-up in fifth semester, while the check form is as the same as that for the regular doctoral candidates.
Each degree applicant should provide certain number of papers published by SCI periodicals before he/she applies for the degree, as required by Physics Department.
The doctoral thesis represents the cultivation quality and the author’s academic level, it should be finished independently by the degree applicant under the adviser’s guidance .A qualified doctoral thesis should be a systematic academic paper, showing author’s innovative academic fruits , indicating that the author has grasped the sound and wide fundamental theoretical knowledge and deep and systematic specialty knowledge, and is able to be independently engaged in teaching or scientific research.
