Project Description

The Department of Physics was established as one of the pioneer departments in Hezekiah University in 2015. At inception, the department was approved to run two programmes;

  1. Physics
  2. Physics with Electronics

It has teaching and laboratory facilities with a department structure that comprises the Head of Department, the academic staff, laboratory attendant and students.

Lectures in the department commenced the same year but only that the department was servicing other departments in the Faculty since there was no students’ enrolment into any of the programmes. In 20116/2017 session, the department had nine (9) students’ in its enrolment.

  • VISION – In line with Hezekiah University, the Vision of the Department is to bring qualitative and functional higher education closer to the people and to play a leading role in the socio-economic and cultural development of the communities that it serves.
  • MISSION – The mission of the Department of Physics and Electronics is based on imparting the highest quality instruction to our undergraduate and graduate students and to train students in the methods and ideas of modern theoretical and applied Physics.
  • AIM & OBJECTIVE – The main objective of Department of Physics is to produce graduates who are able to assist in the solution of societal problems. The specific objectives are to:

    • To provide students with broad and balanced foundation of Physics knowledge and practical skills.
    • To instill in students a sense of enthusiasm for Physics and appreciation of its applications in different contexts.
    • To involve the students in intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying.
    • To develop in students the ability ti apply their knowledge and skills in physics to the solution of theoretical and practical problems.
    • To develop in students through an education in Physics a range of transferable skills of value in physics and other areas.
    • To provide students with a knowledge and skill base for further studies in Physics or multi-disciplinary area involving physics
  • Career Placement – Given their unique training, graduates of our programmes could be self-employed or could be or could be gainfully employed by others in diverse areas. Such areas include:

    • System design and analysis
    • Oil and gas production
    • Mineral exploration and processing
    • Electronic device technology
    • Information and communication technology
    • Manufacturing
    • Metallurgical and materials processing and development
    • Air traffic control
    • Energy conservation and management
    • Insurance
    • Banking, etc.

    In addition, our graduates could find employment in research institutes, defence, industries, medicine, agriculture, etc.
