Wine of honour with reason of the implantation of the Degree in Physics in the University of Alicante


Today we Have given the starting signal to the degree in Physics of the University of Alicante appreciating to all those that have made it possible:

Monday 12 September 2016

Mr Magnificent Rector, academic authorities, colleagues,

It is a joy, an honour, can celebrate with all you that today the degree in Physics of the University of Alicante is a reality.

The physical is the science that helps us to answer the most fundamental questions that join to the man with the universe, with his surroundings; with the biggest, the smallest and the daily. It is the science that translates our reality to the purest language of the logic, the one of the mathematics.

The physics serves of base to the rest of the sciences and of the technology. Have people formed in Physics is essential in the gear of a society. We think that the offer of studies in sciences, that today complete in the University of Alicante, goes to improve the training of the society of our surroundings creating new opportunities of growth.

Our department has worked from does three decades so that this moment was possible from the convencimiento in the ideal of university of Wilhelm von Humboldt, creator and ideologist of the modern university . A model characterised by aunar the education and the investigation, in which it treats the science like a still unsolved problem of the all that it has to be object of constant investigation. In this appearance want to follow deepening in our model of department doing investigation of high quality. En el futuro grow through programs of catchment of talent that can offer to our students, how asked Humboldt, professors that can qualify to the student to exert by himself same a scientific work.

We have elaborated a program of training that us enorgullece since in addition to giving a complete training that covers the most important fields of the physics, does emphasis in fundamental tools nowadays as they are the computational that go to distinguish our formative offer.

Today we want to appreciate the work of innumerable mates that have made possible this day. Some that today can not accompany us, jubilados, professors, researchers, personnel of administration and services. We want to appreciate to this faculty of sciences that has done his the achievement of a degree in Physics, to the departments of the polytechnical school, to the Real Sociedad Spanish of Physics and to the rectorship that has supported it for all the university community.

Between all these people would want to appreciate especially delivering them a memory of the occasion:
-To those who have chaired the commission of creation of the title: Mariola Molina and María Teresa Caballero
-To the dean of the faculty of Sciences: Luis Gras
-To the ex-dean of the faculty of Sciences: Andreu Bonet, the one who began this project.
-To the vice-chancellor of studies: Cecilia Gómez,
-To the rector of the University of Alicante Manuel Palomar.

And I appreciate in name the one of department of Physics Applied the presence of all you today here in this celebration that believe deserves this attainment that have achieved between all and in which now it touches us work with tesón to be able to educate without defrauding to the future students that will share with us these walls.
