The Department of Physics is to supply a contemporary and high quality education for students at Nigerian Turkish Nile University, Abuja. The programs, with effective curriculum and qualified academic staff, prepare students with understanding of both theoretical and practical aspects of Physics. The department also provides the knowledge and experience necessary for a high level career and meaningful employment. The vision of the Physics department is to groom students to become professionally and morally sound physicists. Contemporary and effective curriculum of the department provides students with high level Physics supported by labs and computer simulations to reach global standards. To achieve the vision the department encourages the academic staff to update their knowledge through postgraduate training, research and workshops.
To provide students with a broad and balanced foundation of physics knowledge and practical skills;
To instill in students a sense of enthusiasm for physics, and appreciation of its applications in different contexts;
To involve the students in intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying;
To develop in students the ability to apply their knowledge and skills in Physics to the solution of theoretical and practical problems;
To develop in students through an education in Physics a range of transferable skills of value in physics and other areas;
To provide students with knowledge and skills base for further studies in physics or multi-disciplinary areas involving physics.
The Department should strengthen its position as the central institute of physics of the Nigerian Turkish Nile University licensed for the undergraduate study in physics, and for approving the selection and promotion of junior and senior researchers of physics and multi-disciplinary areas involving physics.
The Department has to retain its internationally recognized quality and, by virtue of such reputation, it ought to effectively look after the status of physics in the Nigerian and African society in general, and particularly in the education system of the Nigeria.
