History of the Faculty
The Faculty was established in 1940 at the Kremenetsky Teachers’ Institute. In 1969 it was relocated as a part of the institute in Ternopil.

During all these years, more than 10 thousand highly qualified teachers of Mathematics, Physics and Computer science were trained at the Faculty. More than 100 graduates of the Faculty have presented their PhD dissertations and today they work as the university teachers. The Faculty is also proud of its graduates who, after receiving scientific degrees, continued working in research institutions of the Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
The Faculty has 8 Laboratories for physics experiments, in particular for mechanics, molecular physics, optics and quantum physics, electricity, radio electronics and microprocessor technology, astronomy and methods of teaching physics.
The Faculty’s facilities also include 6 laboratories equipped with modern computers, 5 lecture rooms, 7 lecture rooms for practical classes and a classroom for teaching mathematics.
Scientific and methodical work
