B.Sc (Hons.) Physics

Program Overview

BSc (Honors) in Physics is a 3 year degree program. The main objective of this course is to provide the students a strong foundation of basic and applied physics by means of various theoretical models, experimental techniques and computational techniques. This program covers the major basic and advanced physics subjects including classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, solid state physics etc. to develop the basic understanding in physics and mathematics required to understand and explain the physical phenomena related to matters, universe, energy etc. In this program, students also have a choice to study the exotic applied physics subjects such as material science, nanotechnology, and signal processing to help with a career in research and development (R&D) sectors. Apart from the basic and applied physics subjects, students will access the well-equipped physics lab as well as computer lab to get the necessary computational and experimental exposure. This course lays the foundation for the students with the dreams to become an innovative researcher, successful professional and skilled technician. Moreover, the course content is designed to prepare the students for national level competitive examinations like JAM and CUCET (for admission in MSc in IITs, NITs and Central Universities). A dissertation is part of the curriculum in the final year to give students a flavor or research.
