Course Structure and Syllabus

Syllabus of M Sc Physics course offered by this University has been prepared following the model curriculum developed by UGC, New Delhi and looking at the need of the students to compete with the recent trends in higher education at national and international level. The same has been finalized by inviting comments, suggestions from experts in individual subjects from various universities, research institutes, industries and alumni of the School. It has been approved by the regular Board of Studies (BOS) in Physics in the meeting held on 19th March 2019, Faculty of the Science & Technology and the Academic Council of the University in the meeting held on 30th April 2019. The syllabi are of modular nature and have been framed as per requirement of the outside world.

Further, looking at the better employability, entrepreneurship possibilities and also to enhance the latent skills of the students the School has adopted the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) at M Sc level and offers flexibility to the students in choosing courses of their own choice from the exhaustive list comprising core, elective, skill enhancement, specializations and minor components. The School shall be implementing the revised syllabus of M. Sc. Physics from the academic year 2019-2020. The syllabus under CBCS pattern is designed in such a way that after completing it the students develops strong foundation of the fundamental Physics and also elevates their knowledge base to apply these foundations to the applied and advanced electives, specializations of their own choices. The students pursuing this course will develop in-depth understanding of various aspects of the core subjects of Physics by developing the deeper understanding level of different analogies, laws of the Nature through the subjects like classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, statistical mechanics, condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular physics, nuclear physics, etc. The course also helps the students in enhancing their analytical skill through the embedded component of the problem solving skills, seminar activities and hands-on and minds-in activities of the course.
