Master of Science in Physics
Duration: Two years full time degree programme
In physics we try to reveal the secrets of nature, from the microcosm of elementary particles to the macrocosm of astrophysics. Between these two extremes there is a wealth of subjects, ranging from biophysics at cellular level and medical research to the development of new understanding in fields such as nanotechnology and climate. The M.Sc. program in Physics has been designed with the objective to provide students with a sound knowledge of the underlying principles which form a thorough basis for careers in physics and related fields. It will allow an in-depth experience of a particular specialized research area, through project work, as a member of a research team. This course will enable students to develop insights into the techniques used in current research areas of Material Science, Solid State Physics, Nuclear Physics, Electronics & Quantum Mechanics. It will develop the professional skills necessary for students to play a meaningful role in industrial or academic life and satisfy the need, both nationally and internationally, for well qualified postgraduates who will be able to respond to the challenges that arise from future developments.
Minimum 50% marks in B.Sc. with Physics as a major subject
On the basis of IUCET
With a Master's degree in Physics you become attractive at the global level, both in the public and private sectors, in areas connected to research, consultancy, engineering, and education.
During the Master's Program in Physics you develop working methods that are useful in a broad range of jobs, and employers value physicists due to their comprehensiveness and ability to approach various problems, analytically and systematically.
In general the program provides a solid foundation for further research and enables the student to qualify the UGC – NET or SLET, which is the gateway for your career in teaching at higher education level. You may choose to continue studies at the Ph.D. level, or proceed with research for the technological industry or research institutions of national importance like ISRO, BARC, DRDO, NPL …etc. The technological industry offers numerous jobs that require experimental and computer simulation competence.
An alternative is to supplement the M.Sc. degree in Physics with practical pedagogic education; hence you will qualify for teaching Physics in senior secondary school.
