Physics

The Department of Physics offers the most varied university programme in the physical sciences in Finland. The department is large and multidisciplinary and employs about 200 people, of which 2 are academy professors (one of whom starting 1.9.2021), 17 are professors and 4 are associate and assistant professors. The research at the department and the research-based teaching follow a high international standard, are nationally significant, and promote the mental and economic wellbeing in society.

The research and teaching subjects of the department comprise physics, theoretical physics, and astronomy. Teaching in Swedish and English are natural parts of the work at the department. The education of physics teachers is part of the department curriculum. The teaching staff of the department and Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research INAR offer each year a wide teaching programme of about 250 courses, comprising all key fields of physical sciences.

The research at the Department of Physics is divided into two divisions in accordance with the focus areas of the department:

The F2k centre is a resource centre working as part of the LUMA centre and the Department of Physics to support teaching, learning, and knowledge of physics. F2k also organises campus visits for schools groups.
