Postgraduate Program


The M.Sc. Program in Physics aims to provide students with a sound knowledge of the principles of Physics which form a thorough basis for careers in Physics and related fields. It also aims to enable students to develop insights into the techniques used in current fields and allow an in-depth experience of a particular specialized research area. In addition, the M.Sc Program is meant to develop professional skills in students that play a meaningful role in industrial and academic life and give students the experience of teamwork, a chance to develop presentation skills and learn to work to deadlines. The M.Sc. program includes a number of lecture courses and laboratory courses both relevant to the discipline and forward-looking with respect to recent developments and state-of-the-art achievements. The program has following three specializations:

I        Nuclear Physics

II       Materials Science

III     Electronics
