About the Programme
M.Sc. Physics is a two-year program that provides a comprehensive insight into the real world application of Physics. The primary objective of this programme is to build an understanding of pure and applied Physics through theoretical & practical approaches and motivated research in fields.
This programme covers advanced knowledge of specialisations like nuclear physics high energy physics condensed matter physics astrophysics cosmology medicine mining and geophysics. It includes a distinctive academic curriculum for students and ensures the transfer of knowledge through scholarly activities interdisciplinary project-based learning state-of-the-art laboratories exceptional computational facilities industry interaction and research opportunities all with the help of qualified and competent faculty members.
This programme will give them the expertise to develop a career in the field of Research & Development Banking Industry Defence & Civil Services etc. The students can also invest in their knowledge through further research in M.Phil. and Ph.D. in the specialisation of their choice.
Programme Educational Objectives (PEO) for MSc (Physics) program
- PEO1: To prepare students to attain successful professional careers by applying critical thinking and skills based on Physics in their professions or higher education to meet the challenges in industry, academia or the pursuit of other fields.
- PEO2:   To engage Students in lifelong learning, adapt to evolving technologies, and work in interdisciplinary research to design innovative products and solutions to become successful professionals, entrepreneurs or researchers.
- PEO3: To provide an opportunity to the students to explore research and development, in collaboration with other institutions, in the areas of Material Sciences, Nuclear Sciences and Renewable Energy.
- PEO4: To impart values in students to practice professional ethics, communicate effectively, emerge as leaders in chosen fields and be socially responsible.
Program Outcomes (PO’s)
