Bachelors of Science in

Physics (Geophysics)

This degree focuses on the composition, structure and other physical attributes of the earth. After extensive four years of training, students are prepared to master the techniques of extraction of materials, ground water and petroleum and also detect and monitor magnetic, thermal, electrical and oceanographic activity. The graduates have full command over complex equipment used to collect data and required skills to analyze and interpret it. The laboratory trainings and computational techniques instill in them over the course of four years make them able to quickly and independently solve problems and contribute towards a better future of our earth.
