Programme OverviewDuration: 2 Years I Programme Code: 020311
Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Physics programme is designed to prepare students for a research career in academia or industry by introducing advanced ideas and techniques that are applicable in a wide range of research areas while emphasizing the underlying concepts of Physics. This course provides in-depth understanding of principles and concept of Physics, proficiency in experimentation to understand the theoretical and experimental dimensions of Physics.
Programme Educational Objectives
- The graduates will have knowledge of fundamental laws and principles in a variety of areas of Physics along with their applications.
- The graduates will develop research skills which might include advanced laboratory techniques, numerical techniques, computer algebra, computer interfacing.
- The graduates will become effective researcher who will be able to provide lucid summation of the scientific literature on a given topic of study.
- The graduates will develop the skill to plan, execute and report the results of an extended experimental or theoretical Physics based project in a research environment.
Programme OutcomesAt the end of the programme the students will be able to:
- Apply theoretical knowledge of principles and concepts of Physics to practical problems.
- Use mathematical techniques and interpret mathematical models of physical behavior.
- Demonstrate the ability to plan, undertake, and report on a programme of original work; including the planning and execution of experiments, the analysis and interpretation of experimental results.
- Assess the errors involved in an experimental work and make recommendations based on the results in an effective manner.
- Develop communication skills, both written and oral, for specialized and non-specialized audiences.
Distinctive academic curriculum, qualified and competent faculty members, transfer of knowledge through scholarly activities, Interdisciplinary project based learning, state-of-the-art laboratories, exceptional computational facilities, industry interaction and semester abroad opportunities.
