The Bachelor programme is implemented in two profiles: “Physics of the Earth and Planets” and “Physics of Condensed State”, the contents of which includes scientific achievements of the following research schools: “Physics of Magnetic Nanosystems” and “Thermal Physics and Molecular Physics”, in the scientific field “Physics of Optical Phenomena“ and of the Research Experimental Centre “Geophysics and Astrophysics”. The material and technological laboratory facilities of the Institute ofˇ Mathematics and Science, the University Observatory, the Digital Meteorological Station provide students with opportunities to learn the natural laws from “the atom to the Universe”.
The educational process employs various innovative technologies. All students have access to electronic educational resources, and the library collection of the NCFU. The international cooperation with the leading universities of the world is still developing. The graduates of this programme benefit from the opportunity to continue their education taking a Master’s course in “Physics” (such Master programmes as “Physics of Substance Condensed State”, “Physics of Atmosphere and Near-Earth Space”) and “Pedagogical Education“ (“Physics Education“).
North-Caucasus Federal University offers some more best educational programs in the field of Physical and Mathematical Sciences:
Teaching staff. Over 90% of the teachers have academic degrees. The acting executive officers and employees of profile enterprises take an active part in the educational process.
