Program Overview and Learning Outcomes

 

History

Science was founded in 1982.The Physics Master Program started its academic life under the structure of The Institute of Science in fall semester in 1993-1994. The academic members who have come to the department in time had been educated in the international platform and a collaborating young and dynamic staff had been constituted. The current staff is a skeleton crew which is open for growing and international competition, heading for being one of the best Physics Departments. Below are the Heads of the Department by years: 1993-2000 Prof. Dr. Ömer Asım Saçlı; 2000-2002 Prof. Dr. Emin Özbaş; 2002-2005 Prof. Dr. Selami Işık Aytaç; 2005-2008 Prof. Dr. Seyfettin Fakıoğlu; 2008- Prof. Dr. Uğur Yahşi.

Qualification Awarded

Master in Physics (MSc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Physics

 

Specific Admission Requirements

The candidates who applied to Master program must have bachelor’s degree diploma or for prerequisite acceptance, the candidates must be in their final semester. The appiled students can be accepted to the program under the rules of Institute of Science. The candidates applied to master programs must take minimum success score of 60 from Academic Graduate Education Entrance Examination (ALES) conducted by (ÖSYM) or the eqivalent exams, accepted by Intercollegiate Commission. With ALES result, when required, graduate point average, KPDS and UDS results, science exam, interview result are considered for student acceptance to our programs within the avaliable quota. The candidates, accepted to graduate programs apply for precision regisitration to the Institute Secretariats with required document in between the dates determined by Administrative Board. The candidates who did not apply to precision registration in the determined time forfeit their rights.

Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal)

Program; The program is open for the students , educated in a bachelor degree in Physics, Physics Engineering, and Physics Education. Non Marmara University students who are completed two semestres with success in a graduate program in a higher education institution can be accepted to a current graduate program in Marmara University by lateral transfer with the scope of provisions shown below a- In the program, which is accepted for lateral transferring, the quota which must not exceed one tenth of the registered students in previous year can be allocated (The fraction is completed to integer). Lateral transfer between one program to another and their quotas determine by administrative board with receiving the opinion of Department/Main Art Department heads and the decision is finalized by Senate and is declaired as specified in 3. provision. b- The student who applied to lateral transfer should receive the opinion of related department head and has to be successful from evaluation of jury assigned by administrative board. c- The not exempted course obligations of the candidates of whom lateral transfer were accepted, determined by Administrative Board decision with taking into account the shared time and other objects.

Qualification Requirements and Regulations

The students must take and pass with succeess the courses at least with 21 hours credit and a non-credit seminar course and in related field, must succeed their defence after writing a Master Desertation. At least 9 credits of gained 21 credits must be correspond to compulsory courses. Students must give a oral presantation related to their theses. Students must take and suceed in the non-credit theoritical Specialized Field Courses. A student in master program with thesis, must write the obtained results depending on the rules defined by the commission and defence in front of the jury with interview. Providing the success in defence and ensuring the other required conditions, the student has a right to take master diploma.

Access to Further Studies

The alumni in Physics Master can apply to education and trainning programs under the related instution rules in doctoral positions, in physics or related scientific fields to physics and accepted in success requirement. A Master diploma is required for the candidates to apply to Physics Doctoral program. The candidates who applied to doctorate program must have minimum success score of 65 from ALES conducted by (OSYM) or its eqivalent exams, accepted by Intercollegiate Commission. Also from foreign language exam (UDS or its equivalents) minimum 60 is required. With ALES result, when required, master graduate point average, science exam and interview result are considered for student acceptance to our programs within the avaliable quota.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading

In evaluating the success, direct conversion systems (DDS) is used: the grade in a course of a student is evaluated by converting to quatrain grading with a defined scale. The each semester evaluation tool, (midterm, homework, project, laboratory, application and The other studies) is scored over 100 and its 50% is the contribution to final grade.For being successful from a course with credit, 65 is required out of 100 from final exam. A student in master program with thesis, must write the thesis with obtained results depending on the rules defined by the commission and defence in front of the jury with interview.

Graduation Requirements

Within the time defined by Institute of Science, the students must take and pass with succeess the courses at least with 21 hours credit and a non-credit seminar course and must succeed and defend after writing a Doctoral desertation. At least 9 credits of gained 21 credits must be correspond to compulsory courses. Students must give a oral presantation related to their theses. Students must take and suceed in the non-credit theoritical Specialized Field Courses
