Course Overview

The bachelor’s programme in Physics is offered at the University of Agriculture, Makurdi. It examines the structure of the entire universe, exploring the stars, the shape of a water droplet, and physical characteristics or everything in existence. Students get to learn about great physicists such as Albert Einstein, Galileo Galilei, Erwin Schrodinger and Sir Isaac Newton , and their roles in identifying the natural laws and theories that underlie modern scientific understandings of the world. The course will cover topics that include electricity and magnetism, space and time, thermodynamics, quantum physics, relativity, geophysical, fluid dynamics, astronomy and a few complex mathematics.

As  a graduate of Physics, you can play major roles in many key sectors such as technology and engineering. You will demonstrate high-end skills such as the ones required to develop fibre optics in communications systems, apply electromagnetic knowledge in developing new industrial technologies. You will be able to apply the knowledge and techniques of physical science as may be required in any field.
