M.Sc. - Physics

School of Life & Basic Sciences

Physics is a fundamental natural science. Besides exploring and identifying the basic principles and laws governing the motion, energy, structure and interaction of matter, it also deals with the pertinent questions about today's era of science and technology. Physics labs cover the vast areas of research in mechanics, properties of matter, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, light, and modern physics.

Applying for Admissions 2021

It is a postgraduate program that can be taken after graduating course. M.Sc. is a master’s degree which provides the theoretical as well as practical knowledge in science. This is offered by many universities in India. Some of these universities also offer interdisciplinary M.Sc. courses.

 After getting a M.Sc. degree, candidates may apply for a PhD course or in research institutes such as ISRO, DRDO, BARC, TIFR, NPL etc. who conducts exam for the Scientist posts. Beyond this there many jobs in Indian military such as in Indian air force, Navy and Army. A student can chart his career in higher education after qualify NET, SLET examinations which are based on M.Sc. qualification.

No. A student should have a Bachelors degree with Physics and Mathematics at graduation level.

The Master of Science degree is popularly abbreviated to MS in the US and M.Sc. in the India, UK and certain Commonwealth countries. MS is a professional course than the M.Sc. course. It is perceived to be a better program when compared to the M.Sc. program. Those who have completed M.Sc. or Bachelor in Engineering can also do the MS program.

 Yes, you can do M.Sc. Physics after completing your B.Sc. in Mathematics, but you need to some elective subjects of physics. If you fulfill the criteria of post-graduation entrance exam, then you can do it.

Yes, According to University norms.

The department has a well-qualified, experienced teaching staff. There is one Professor, two Associate Professor and few faculty members from interdisciplinary area. They are also actively involved in research and have published articles extensively in different areas of Physics.

  • Use of ICT in teaching learning process
  • Introduction of minor and major projects in the curriculam.
  • Co- curricular activities to bridge the gaps in curriculum.
  • Breadth of electives offered.
  • Identification of weak and advanced learners.

Presently no, any specialization although electives are offered in last semester.

As per University curriculum.

Yes we have strong network with alumni and conduct alumni Meets every year & also at the time of convocation.

Yes, class wise teacher are allotted as mentors for an overall coordination to resolve the various issues of our students.
