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)

  • PO1: Proficiency - Students should demonstrate proficiency in Nuclear and Particle Physics, Advanced Quantum Mechanics, Spectroscopy, Statistical Mechanics, Electronics, Characterization & Synthesis of Materials, Solid State Physics and Renewable Energy and should be able to apply these functions, principles and concepts for solving professional or research problems.
  • PO2: Skills - Students should understand the need and acquire skills to design and conduct physics experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.   He should also learned analytical skills on an advanced level, needed in industry, consultancy, education, research, or public administration. 
  • PO3: Communication - Students should understand and capable of writing scientific publication and present their research works in conferences and seminars.
  • PO4: Research - Students shall have ability to Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyses substantiated conclusions to take up higher education or work on interdisciplinary research problems or take up physics as a teaching profession. 
  • PO5: Responsibility - Students shall have a clear understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  • PO6: Life-long learning - Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of research and technology.

Program Specific Outcomes (PSO’s)

  • PSO1: Materials Science - An idea about all types of crystal defects and dislocations, information about Phase diagrams and general diffusion theory in detail, A fair idea of plastic deformation and fracture of material from an engineering point of view, A comprehensive awareness of the most important engineering material of the century namely polymers and state of the art facts and techniques of the synthesis and characterization of materials.
  • PSO2: Nano Science - Studying nano science will contribute to the development of technology and devices such as single photon sources, solar cells, nano electronics and nanomaterial’s. Highly relevant to the recruitment needs of industrial employers, particularly in the semiconductor, telecommunications and imaging sectors and for further research.
