MSc Physics

Objective

• Find and evaluate data, models, hypotheses, and conclusions published in publicly available scientific literature. Apply knowledge and techniques from physics, mathematics, and computing to help solve scientific problems.

• Conduct an independent scientific investigations.

• Make cogent presentations of scientific data, observations, interpretations, and conclusions in written and oral formats.

• Be aware of scientific issues that affect society at large. Collaborate with others, including multidisciplinary groups, to solve scientific problems, and to recognize ethical issues in each respective profession.

• Understand the need for, and develop the abilities to engage in, lifelong learning.

Note:

• One optional subject to be chosen in 3rd and 4th semester.

• Projects may be opted in lieu of option-II of the subject already taken by the student in 3rd semester.

• Thesis will be allotted in the 3rd semester. However, the credit hours for thesis will only count towards the 4th semesters.
