Department of Physics

Department of Physics Havilla Univeristy

Welcome to the Department of Physics Havilla Univeristy, Nde-Ikom Cross River State Nigeria.This programme has been developed to provide students simultaneously with solid theoretical grounding in physics and competency in the technological area of Electronic Engineering. The programme structure puts a heavy emphasis on the acquisition of practical skills and also offers a wide range of choice of subject areas. With B.sc Physics with Electronics, we aim to provide a firm foundation in every aspect of physics and to explain a brand spectrum of modern trends and to develop experimental, computational and mathematical skills of students.

Aims and Objectives

On successful completion of the programme, the graduate shall be able to realize the following objectives:
• Demonstrate skills in scientific inquiry, problem solving and laboratory techniques
• Demonstrate a broad base of knowledge in physics
• Demonstrate understanding of our place in the physical universe
• Demonstrate understanding of the laws of nature
• Develop a solid grasp of core concepts and applications of classical mechanicals, electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics and statistical physics

Admision Requirements

Candidates can be admitted into any of the degree Physical sciences programmes by one of the following ways:
• The Unified Tertiary Matriculation (UTME)
• Direct Entry

UTME Admissions

Students intending to graduate in Physics with Electronics must satisfy the general University entrance requirement and should normally pass:
(i) Minimum of five Ordinary level (SSCE or NECO) credit passes in English Language, Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and any other subjects from Geography, Biology or and Agricultural Science at NOT more than two (2) sittings
(ii) Minimum UTME/Post-UTME score for admission into the Department which shall be determined by the University admission committee

Direct Entry Admission

Candidates for direct entry while fulfilling the conditions in (i) and (ii) above must have in addition passes with a satisfactory grade at “A” level in Physics and Mathematics may be considered for 200 level admission. The mode of study shall be full time. The B.sc Degree course will take four year of study for UTME entrants including a minimum of 6 months of SIWES while the duration of study for Direct entry candidates will be three years.
