About the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics
The faculty of Physics and Mathematics started its activity in 1935-1936 academic year as a branch of Khorezm teacher training institute. That time the contingent of students consisted of only 12 students. During this period, among the first O. Yavbasarov, A. Karimov, N. Mavaev, M. Abdiyev were the teachers and held other educational activities. In 1936, the physics professor P. Burov from Leningrad city have been invited to work at the Institute. He established the department of physics and mathematics. He also opened new advanced physics laboratory and stated working as the head of the department.
1941-1942 years the department of physics and mathematics formed as a faculty of Physics and mathematics. In the same academic year, the head of the Physics department of the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute Professor E. Shtrauss started working at the faculty and he was appointed as the dean of the faculty.
From 1957, at the faculty of physics and mathematics the physics, mathematics, pedagogy and primary education specialties begin training of specialists. In 1962-1963 academic year because of a lack of highly qualified teachers accepting students in the faculty of physics and mathematics was stopped. In 1966 Associate Professor M.Nazariy from the mechanics Institute of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan was invited to teach at the faculty of Physics and mathematics and this year began enrolling students to the faculty again. In those years, there were 4 specializations at the faculty which were mathematics, physics, pedagogics, primary education and biology.
During the 1972-1979 M. Nazariy was the dean of the faculty. From 1979 Dr. D. Jumaniyozov worked as a dean of the faculty. During this period new departments such “The method of teaching algebra and mathematics" and "Mathematics" were established.
Since 1988, in the faculty started to work three departments. In these departments mainly specialties in mathematics-computer science, mathematics-physics prepared as teachers. During 1991-1994 docent E. Qo'shchonov worked as the dean of the faculty of physics and mathematics.
In 1992 Khorezm State Pedagogical Institute transformed into Urgench State University and some structural changes were made in the faculty of physics and mathematics. First of all, faculty departments’ academic staff enriched with highly professional specialists from the central cities. There were new departments with new scientific-pedagogical directions: “Functional analysis”, “Informatics and Calculation technologies”, “Physics” and on the basis of “Algebra and Geometry" department new “Applied Mathematics" department has been launched.
During 1994-1996, Dr. A. B. Hasanov, during 1996-1999 docent O.I.Asqarov, 1999-2009 again prof. A. B. Hasanov, 2009-2015 docent B.I. Abdullaev leaded the faculty as the dean and made their large contribution to improve the educational, scientific and methodical works, the scientific potential of professors and teachers.
Since 2015, docent J. Xujamov is the dean of the Physics and mathematics faculty.
Currently, there are 4 departments at the faculty and five directions are taught in these departments:
5130100 – Mathematics
"Applied mathematics" department
5130200 – Applied mathematics and informatics
5140300 – Mechanics
"Information technologies" department
5111118 – Informatics and information technologies
5140200 - Physics
The total number of the bachelor students is 661.
The total number of the master students is 11.
