MSc Physics

Objective

By establishing academic and research linkages with local as well as international institutions, the Department of Physics provides a conducive environment for the academic and professional development of its students. The recently organized national as well as international conferences, seminars and workshops speak volumes of the efforts the department has taken to ensure that its students are provided with an in-depth understanding of the field. Owing to the availability of a wide variety of specialized PhD staff

Role and Scope

The scope of physics can be understood if one looks at its various sub-disciplines such as mechanics, optics, heat and thermodynamics, electrodynamics, atomic physics, nuclear physics. A physics degree is a great starting point for a career in scientific research, as well as in a range of careers in the business, finance, IT and engineering sector. Physics postgraduate degree holder can also have job in following areas

• Acoustic consultant

• Geophysicist

• Healthcare scientist, medical physics

•Higher education lecturer

• Metallurgist

• Meteorologist

• Nanotechnologist

• Radiation protection practitioner

• Research scientist (physical sciences)
