Course Structure Diagram with Credits

In addition to the compulsory courses of the programme, students register to elective courses appropriate for their thesis topic, on the consent of their supervisor. If necessary, on the consent of their supervisor, they can also register to courses from other programmes (from DEU or other universities). It is obligatory to register MAT5001 Applied Mathematics (3 0 0) or MAT5051 Methods of Applied Mathematics (3 0 0) with the approval of the supervisor. The registration must be noticed to the Institute during course registration period by the supervisor.Students must take FİZ 3043 Quantum Mechanics I (4 0 0) and FİZ 3044 Quantum Mechnics II (4 0 0) obligatory with no credit. In addition, to take FİZ 3044 Quantum Mechanics II (4 0 0) course, students must succeed FİZ 3043 Quantum Mechanics I (4 0 0) course.
