The Department of Physics and Methods of its Teaching was founded in 1930. Nowadays the academic staff of the Department includes 7 academics (3 Doctors of Sciences, Professors, 2 Candidates of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Associate Professors, 2 Candidates of Pedagogic Sciences, Associate Professors). The Department provides the postgraduate program in specialty 104 Physics and Astronomy (01.04.07 Physics of Solid State) and the postgraduate program in specialty 014 Secondary Education (Physics) for PhDs training.


The Department of Physics and Methods of its Teaching has formed four main ways of research work:

- theoretical and applied research on Solid State Physics issues;

- research on the Methods of Teaching Physics in higher education institutions and in secondary education institutions;

- development and implementation of small Physics equipment for Physics education laboratories, built on the basis of modern fiber-optic, optoelectronic and digital technologies;

- development of research fundamentals and techniques for measuring parameters of geophysical processes.

The research topic of the Department: “Improving the methods of studying Physics in modern secondary education institutions and higher education pedagogical institutions”.
