Our department offers full-time and part-time studies in the bachelor’s program Physics for Education, and the master’s program Teaching Physics at Lower-Secondary Schools.
What can you experience at the department?
The department organizes seminars focusing both on physics research and on the methodology of teaching physics. We have research projects supported by the Czech Science Foundation, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, as well as other funding agencies, and we also participate in corporate research. We operate well-equipped laboratories for piezoelectric research (piezo laboratory) and for modern optical methods of measuring and detecting particles (laboratory of laser interferometry). Members of the department regularly participate in research at the CERN in Switzerland and can also arrange research stay for students. Students can participate in the department’s research activities through the university’s Student Grant Competition, or by working on corporate research or joining the department’s other research project. We annually organize a Physics Festival for pupils in the first years of primary schools, and we also regularly participate in Researchers’ Nights with presentations of physical phenomena for the general public.
