  • About Physics

    Background

    Physics is the fundamental science concerned with the observation, understanding and prediction of natural phenomena and the behavior of man-made systems. It deals with profound questions about the nature of the universe and with some of the most important practical, environmental and technological issues of our time. The scope of Physics is broad and encompasses mathematical and theoretical investigation, experimental observation, computing technique, technological application, material manipulation and information processing. Physics seeks simple explanations of physical phenomena based on universal principles stated in concise and powerful language of mathematics. The principles form a coherent unity, applicable to all objects found in nature. Findings in Physics have implications in all walks of life ranging from the way we perceive reality to things of everyday use.

    Physicists constantly test the basic laws of nature by probing the unknown, the mysterious and the complex. They also search for new laws at the frontiers of knowledge and systematically seek novel properties of matter. In order to meet these goals, the Department is delivering physics in both the undergraduate (BSc) and graduate (MSc and PhD) programs.

    Since its establishment in 2007(1999 E.C.), the department has graduated a number of students in the undergraduate as well as graduate programs. In the 2017/18 A.Y. the department is hosting about 900 undergraduate both in Regular and CDEP and 62 graduate (55 MSc. and 7 PhD) students.

    Currently the department is running two undergraduate programs (i.e Applied Physics and Laboratory technology in Physics) with fourteen instructors, one technical assistant, one secretary, and one laboratory assistant. In addition, six of our faculty members are pursuing PhD in different Ethiopian institution. From these two of them are doing their PhD in Wollega University.

    The department has made collaboration with department of Physics, Osmania University, Hyderabad and our students are doing their research work in this University.

    A Professional in Community Services

    arkube (2)

    Community service has become a culture and habit for some professionals and students in Wollega University. We are now proving that we can influence the community and bring practical changes. We want to share what the Public Administration instructor (Dr Kannan Ambalam) in Wollega University has done with his Master of Public Administration (MPA) students and the local community at Demeksa Kebele. The course taught by this instructor is named Development Administration. He related the course with the practical problem he observed in Demeksa Kebele. People have been suffering from the lack of bridge and pure drinking water for centuries. The instructor, mobilizing his students and the local community, constructed two bridges and one water spring as part of his course. What does this teach us? We could say many things for the programs we are running in the University. We have 97 programs at the moment. We learnt that if the 97 programs relate at least one course to the practical problem of the community, we can really bring dramatic change very soon.

    The inaugural ceremony of this water spring was organized at Damaksa Kebele of Digga woreda on 14 March 2017 (Tuesday) in the presence of the University administration, the local community, students and kebele leaders. The spring will benefit nearly 100 households, both from Damaksa Kebele and the nearby areas.

    arkube (2)Community service has become a culture and habit for some professionals and students in Wollega University. We are now proving that we can influence the community and bring practical changes. We want to share what the Public Administration instructor (Dr Kannan Ambalam) in Wollega University has done with his Master of Public Administration (MPA) students and the local community at Demeksa Kebele. The course taught by this instructor is named Development Administration. He related the course with the practical problem he observed in Demeksa Kebele. People have been suffering from the lack of bridge and pure drinking water for centuries. The instructor, mobilizing his students and the local community, constructed two bridges and one water spring as part of his course. What does this teach us? We could say many things for the programs we are running in the University. We have 97 programs at the moment. We learnt that if the 97 programs relate at least one course to the practical problem of the community, we can really bring dramatic change very soon.

  • Making a Difference: Professionals Playing Their Professional Duties!

    Making a Difference: Professionals Playing Their Professional Duties!

    The case method has been recognized as an important pedagogical tool in imparting management education and various Management Schools have used it in varying degrees. Case method provides simulated business decision-making environment interfaced with business issues involved. The business cases of Ethiopia are merely available, so teachers are using cases developed in the United States of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK) and these cases fail to understand the local problem of the business. So the need of the hour is to develop the cases in the own country for better understanding of the concept and effectiveness.

    Wollega University, which conducted a workshop, recently became member of this Case Centre.  Wollega University has become the first University in Ethiopia to become member of Case Centre (UK). The Case Centre (UK) was set up in 1973 as the Case Clearing House of Great Britain and Ireland. It was the result of a joint initiative by 22 higher education institutions who wanted a reliable facility for sharing case materials among business teachers.

    Now, cases are also available at the cheaper cost to the Wollega University Staff. The University will organize workshops to train the teachers of not only our University but to other university of Ethiopia to share the knowledge. Also Wollega University academic community can develop the business cases for teaching and disseminate the knowledge throughout the world by publishing the cases at the Case Centre.

    The efforts made by the Corporate Communications Directorate, Wollega University and Dr.Vijay Kumar Pandey, Department of Management are also highly appreciated. This is what makes a difference whereby Wollega University has become the first higher learning institution in Ethiopia to become member of Case Centre (UK).

After five days visit at Makerere university (November 10-14/2017), the delegate came back with rich experience. The members of the delegate confirmed while briefing about their visit to the domestic staff that Makerere University is one of the higher institutions to learn from as it is one of the oldest and academically stable institution with high ranking in Africa. It is an exemplary university because every working unit in it has internalized the vision and is working for its productivity.

    Based on the briefing, Wollega University workers on their part agreed that commitment and hardworking of all staffs is very important to realize the vision of the university. The staffs agreed that there are good practices that Wollega University can share to other universities like Makerere University has done and at the same time there are other practices that the university needs to work on strongly.
