About the Programme

Study & development of physics is important as it plays a key role in the future progress of humankind. Physics is an exciting intellectual adventure that inspires young people and expands the frontiers of our knowledge about Nature. Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world. It contributes to the technological infrastructure and provides trained personnel needed to take advantage of scientific advances and discoveries. Physics is an important element in the education of chemists, engineers and computer scientists, as well as practitioners of the other physical and biomedical sciences. It extends and enhances our understanding of other disciplines, such as the earth, agricultural, chemical, biological, and environmental sciences which happen to be the subjects of substantial importance to all peoples of the world. Physics improves our quality of life by providing the basic understanding necessary for developing new materials, instrumentation and techniques for various applications.

Considering the above the programme has been designed with two elements namely core and specialization and initially the school shall offer Electronics and Material Science as the specializations. Subsequently based on the availability of infrastructure and faculty other specializations can be added without any need to modify the core component.

Features :

  • The programme has been designed broadly on the basis of UGC model curriculum, syllabus for NET and GATE examinations.
  • Syllabus of various lading institutions has also been used as a reference while framing the curriculum.
  • The programme has an excellent blend of the core and applied components.
  • The programme has been designed on core and specialization pattern and initially two specializations namely electronics (Microcomputers and Interfacing) and material science shall be offered with 10 students for each specialization.
  • Based on the expertise of the faculty more specializations can be added in future.
