Welcome to the official website of the Department of Physics of the University of Ioannina. Hereby, you will be able to find information about the structure, personnel,  programe of studies and the research activities of the Department. Moreover, you will be able to find all the latest announcements regarding the studies timetable, exams, seminars and other activities of the Department.

The Department of Physics was founded in 1970,  concurrently with the establishment of the School of Physics-Mathematics and the commencement of the operations of the University of Ioannina as a higher education Institution. The Department is currently housed in buildings Φ2 and Φ3, located in the western side of the Uviversity campus, which is about 4 km away from downtown Ioannina.

The Department's personnel consists of 44 teaching and research  faculty members and 14 members of administrative/technical personnel. The Department hosts around 1200 undegraduate students, 100 graduate students and 40 PhD students.

The main goals of the Department are in the one hand to supply high-quality theoretical and practical education in Physics and other related fields  to  its students and on the other hand to conduct top-level scientific research.

The undergraduate Studies Programme has a duration of 4 years and leads to a Physics Diploma. The programme contains 30 core courses covering the basics of the field, as well as 60 optional courses covering a plethora of specialized topics. The Department also offers the possibility of postgraduate studies, covering a wide range of areas, by providing 5 programmes of postgraduate studies leading to a MSc or a PhD degree.

The Department puts special emphasis on the use of new technologies in teaching and for this reason a large fraction of its courses are available on-line.  Moreover, it has institutionalized a continuous evaluation of the teaching and research activities of its members.

Special efforts are also taken for the popularization and the diffusion of the Science of Physics to the general public. For this reason, the Department organizes open seminars, participates in training programmes of secondary education teachers, and has also created a Physics experiments demonstration Lab which is visited by students from local schools.

The high-level research taking place in the Deparmement can be evidenced by the number of publications  of its faculty members in scientific journals  and the corresponding number of citations, the ability of its faculty members to attract European research programmes, as well as by the on-going collaborations of Department's members with scientists of well-established research centers and Universities from abroad.

The website of the Department, is updated and enriched on a daily basis so that to supply the most recent information about the ensemble of the Department's activities. We are considering with pleasure the remarks as well as the proposals and comments of students, their parents and of every visitor of our website in general, which may be sent to webphysatuoi.gr.
