Welcome to the Department of Physics

About the Department:

    Department of physics has a long and distinguished history dating back to the university’s inception, created in 1969. It was actually started as one of the departments of College of Science in the University. The first graduate courses were introduced in 1978 and since then this department has produced number of graduates who have found employment in both  Government and Educational establishments of Kurdistan.

    Today, our new generation of physicists continues to bring new insights into the exploration of fundamental problems in different areas of theoretical, experimental, and computational physics. Examples of which are Quantum Information, Material Science, Nanotechnology, Atomic Physics, Laser Applications and Medical Physics.The Astronomy and Meteorologyare the two other subjects which provide outstanding and innovative educational opportunities to the many talented students who enroll in our flexible undergraduate and graduate programmers.

Another area of interest in our physics department is the studying of nuclear physics, focusing on the fundamentals and concepts of nuclear structure of matter. In accordance with the nuclear physics concepts, other sub-branches, such as radiology, gamma ray and nuclear medicine, are also studied.

Erasmus Mundus MARHABA Program
This program is funded by the European Union and it has the following aims:
  • To enhance the quality of higher education in Europe.
  • To promote the idea of making the European Union a learning centre of excellence.
  • To improve the cultural relations between EU and third world countries especially with regard to higher education.
MARHABA provides the opportunity for willing students and academics to enhance their skills in their fields by conducting their research and/or studies in a foreign country for a specific duration. We, in Physics department, are proud to have the following two candidates who are granted a placement in this program:
  1. Dr. Abdulqader Abdullah Qader who will be going to Leicester University in the UK for a month in August.
  2. Rawezh Bakr, a third year student, will be studying his final year at the university of Cagliar, Italy.
