PHYSICS THE BRANCH OF SCIENCE CONCERNED WITH THE NATURE AND PROPERTIES OF MATTER AND ENERGY.

M.SC PHYSICS

ABOUT THE COURSE

The PG department of Physics was started during the academic year 2015- 2016. The PG lab is provided with well equipped instruments to compete with students’ cardinal numbers. The department has enough reference books and thesis for the students to enrich their knowledge in the field of Physics.

Objectives:

Our outcomes include a mastery of:

1) domain knowledge in the fields ofphysics

2) research methods and laboratory skills

3) communication skills including technical and informal communication.


ELIGIBILITY FOR ADMISSIONA pass in the B. Sc degree examination in branch-III Physics main with Mathematics as one of the ancillary subjects or B. Sc Applied Science of  the University of Madras with Mathematics as one of the ancillary subjects or  examination of some other University accepted by the Syndicate as equivalent degree.

DURATION OF THE COURSE

The duration of the courses is for two years consisting of four semesters.

CAREER PROGRESSION

Physics is an important field of science, with much research taking place all around the world. Physics is a valuable asset to everyone. Many companies are actively seeking young people with physics backgrounds. All physicists, whether you have a bachelors degree, a Masters degree or a PhD, are valuable and needed.

Having a Master of Science (M. Sc) in Physics tells a prospective employer that you are able to learn the special skills required in a particular job, and that you can analyze and solve problems by yourself. People with this degree have taken jobs as research assistants or technicians with companies like Xerox, Nortel, and many others. A physics degree can also be used as a stepping stone to further training and careers in teaching, meteorology, engineering, law, medicine, and the health sciences.
