International Activities


To pursue UNY’s big dream to be a world class university and to be an excellent university in South-East Asia, UNY’s Department of Physics Education has already conducted international activites such as Sit-In program, Guest Lecture, Credit Transfer, and Joint Research with South-East Asia universities like Malaysia and Thailand.

                Sit-In program was conducted by sending students to overseas universities to attend  lecture, and at the same time, UNY’s Department of Physics Education accepted overseas students who take the same program. In 2013, 2015 and 2016, Department of Physics Education sent 20, 16 and 21 students respectively, to UPM (University Putra Malaysia) for Sit-In program. Each year, a lecturer accompanies these students, and at the same time, the lecturer also gives guest lecture for the university in which the students doing their sit-in program.

Guest lecture program was established by inviting overseas lecturer to give lectures at UNY’s Department of Physics Education. They can be general lectures for students and department’s staff, or regular classes for one semester. In 2013, Garry Briant, Ph.D from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology gave lecture about material physics. In 2014, Prof. Dr. Dean Zollman from Kansas State University U.S.A. stayed for a week in UNY and gave lectures on physics education. In 2015, Suzane W. Brahmia, Ph.D. from Rutgers University New Jersey U.S.A. gave general lecture on physics education for the staff. In April 2016, Dr. Yap Wing Fen from Department of Physics Faculty of Science UPM gave general lecture for UNY’s students and UPM’s students taking sit in program in UNY on surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy: preliminary studies and potential application. In 2016, for one semester, Associate Prof. Allen Coleman Price, Ph.D. from Emmanuel College Boston U.S.A. gave full semester lectures for Modern Physics course, Basic Physics II course and Basic Physics II Labwork in UNY’s Department of Physics Education.

Credit transfer program was conducted by sending students to overseas universities to take courses and pass the courses, and the same with overseas students, they can take courses in UNY’s Department of Physics. 5 students from Yala Rajabat University Thailand had taken thermodynamics course, colloidal physics course, wave physics course and several other physics courses and passed the courses. The same program was also taken by UNY’s Department of Physics Education students in Yala Rajabat University.
