Successful interaction of educational, organizational and methodological and scientific processes in higher educational institutions is the basis for the formation of a modern student, which provides the formation of a modern specialist with a full set of knowledge through the assimilation of all three components during the study period. Through this kind of work the student acquires skills of learning, assimilation, processing and use of new information.
The entire telecommunications sector is based on the foundations of physics - fundamental physical theories, laws, scientific problems and the modern development of science. Therefore, the main thing for the staff of the department is to ensure a high-quality basic training of students and the development of their creative abilities.
Physics and Physics of Optical Communications programs are based on one of the most advanced technologies - the credit-module system, which ensures the improvement of the quality of education in the information society, the educational mobility of each student, the acquisition of self-realization and competitiveness in the labor market.
The discipline programs are aimed at maximizing the individualization of the learning process. The scientific and pedagogical staff of the department actively work on the new educational technologies of the educational process in accordance with the democratic values of modern scientific and technological achievements of the Bologna process.
Work curricula of Physics and Physics of optical communication are the main documents defining the volume and indicative order of the study of content modules, a list of laboratory works and topics of practical training in accordance with the industry standard of higher education.
The peculiarity of the programs is the in-depth and detailed study of such sections of physics as electricity and magnetism, oscillations and waves, wave phenomena, quantum mechanics and solid state physics, which in full provides students with the knowledge necessary for the study of special disciplines.
The main forms of studying the disciplines at the Department of Physics are lectures, practical and laboratory classes, seminars from the university partners.
At lectures, students should familiarize themselves with the fundamental laws of nature, properties and structure of matter, to acquire physical theories, fundamental concepts and definitions of physical quantities, content of models, hypotheses, laws, principles, and to form a coherent modern physical picture of the world.
The material of the lecture by the teachers of the department is presented in the form of presentations using the technical means of study, which is provided by the department and the university as a whole. This form of lecture lecture provides an opportunity to provide students with broader and more in-depth information on the subject being studied, and also meets the modern requirements of innovative approaches in the methodology of teaching disciplines.
The practical lessons consolidate theoretical knowledge by solving problems and examples, assimilate the means and methods for solving specific problems from different sections of physics.
In laboratory classes, students get acquainted with the physical phenomena being investigated and laws to understand the essence of research methods, acquire the skills of assessing the technical means used in the experiment, the skills to establish the reliability of the results obtained, learn the ability to use statistical techniques and modern computer techniques for processing and analysis of the results of the experiment.
Individual work is done on separate topics developed by the NNP department in teaching aids and textbooks. To facilitate students' independent work (CVS), the teacher defines the main and additional literature, provides methodological advice. CMS has developed control questions packages for each course topic. Also, it is recommended for the CPC to use electronic versions of textbooks, manuals and textbooks, prepared at the department and presented in the university's information network or on optical disks.
For the convenience of working out and raising the level of assimilation of material in the process of independent work, at the end of each section of each discipline, control questions and a list of recommended literature are submitted. The curricula for studying disciplines are aimed at increasing the level of mastering the lecture material, developing the scientific worldview, modern physical thinking and the skills of active independent educational, scientific, methodological and practical activities, forging the ability to put the experiment and conduct its analysis, develop the thinking and creative abilities necessary for the formation high level future specialist.
The basis of the credit-module technology of teaching disciplines Physics and Physics of optical communication are the following principles:
In the study of academic disciplines, a comprehensive system approach to mastering the knowledge of the students, which allow timely adaptation to profound changes in communications technology, an increasing flow of information, and the latest scientific and technological advances in the field of information and communication technologies, is used.
Educational disciplines Physics and Physics of optical communication have a general-engineering character and are aimed at the use of skills acquired by students during the study of professional disciplines for the development of coursework, diploma papers (projects), calculations and graphic works, as well as the implementation of scientific experiments and modeling.
The criterion for evaluating students' knowledge is the systemicity of general-professional knowledge, skills and abilities.
The control of students' current progress is carried out using the electronic journal, which records assessments for all types of student work, and this is the evaluation of the work in the classroom in practical classes, assessments for performing independent individual work, the protection of laboratory works, estimates for the calculation and graphic work, modular control works. Together for the semester the student will receive more than 20 marks. Current performance is estimated at the 60-point system. At the end of each semester, the curriculum provides for a score or examination, the results of which are evaluated by the 40-point system.
The resulting score consists of a total assessment of the student's current progression and the score obtained for the test or test. Such an approach to assessing student knowledge ensures the regularity and continuity of student learning and control of his knowledge, as well as the objectivity of student assessment.
The student rating system allows students to create the most optimal, well-formulated, objective, reliable, scientifically based criteria for traditional and new forms of control. This system takes into account the individual characteristics of the student, timeliness, continuity, specificity of the timing of tasks, the possibility of self-control by students, the correct attitude of teachers to students, makes the process of control of knowledge clear and transparent.
In order to improve the control of mastering material by students, the department develops an automatic system for student testing using computer technology and related software. This will enable automation of the control process, increase the level of objectivity of students' knowledge evaluation, and make it impossible to commit corruption actions or attempt to falsify the evaluation results.
Programs for the new discipline "Principles of 3D printing" and courses "Fundamentals of the operating system AIX" provide students with modern, innovative knowledge of advanced technologies.
The department systematically conducts scientific and methodological seminars. All members of the department attend training sessions to improve one's own professional level.
