Our Objectives

The objectives for setting up the Department of Microbiology are thus:

      • The objectives of the undergraduate curriculum in Physics and its Applied Physics programmes at Olabisi Onabanjo University are:(i)         To provide a solid background in Classical and Modern Physics for students with career objectives in Pure Physics, Research, Electronics, Materials Science, Computer Science, Geophysics, Medicine, diverse fields of application of Nuclear Energy, Secondary School Science Teaching, etc.(ii)       To provide balanced training in the fields of electronics and Geophysics which are considered most relevant to human and material development in Nigeria.(iii)      To provide skilled scientists capable of applying their knowledge to solve national problems in their respective field of interest.

        (iv)      To inculcate broad specific discipline in undergraduate students (independent work, resourcefulness, honesty, broad scientific outlook and team-work in scientific research)

        (v)       To ensure a high level of competence of our graduates and also increase their flexibility in fitting into diverse careers including research and development, industry and education.

        (vi)      To develop a research culture in the department in consonance with current trends in industry and research that are having direct relevance to the peculiar needs of Ogun State in particular and Nigeria in general.

        (vii)     To provide a solid academic base for the pursuit of higher degree (M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D.)

        The programmes of study in the Department are:


        I     Pure Physics and

        II   Applied Physics which comprises Geophysics and Physics with Electronics options.


        Finally, the Department is committed to creating an interactive scholarly unit in which a diversity of ideas, student’s experience, individual backgrounds, and perspectives are welcomed and encouraged.

        The academic atmosphere in the Department is very conducive for learning, teaching and research and this is as a result of our strong intellectual and scientific pedigree.

        The Department complements the University in providing an enabling environment for the students’ learning and to share academic fellowship with one another and the staff.
