Physics addresses some of the deepest questions of how the universe works and explores nature beyond the bounds of human experience. From the longest length and time scales to the smallest length and time scales and in between these extremes, understanding how the Sun and stars work, the physics and biophysics of nanoscale structures, quantum states of matter such as superconductivity and ultracold atom gases, and metamaterials are all keys to our research themes. Students in the B.Sc. (Hons) Physics programme can benefit directly from this activity by joining and being taught by acknowledged experts at the frontiers of physics; and by taking part in the research itself in the final years of the degree.
At RIMT the learning approach is a mix of the traditional and new methods. On one hand familiarizing students with the knowledge and theories that are essential to understanding of the discipline; and on the other hand, giving them a chance wherever possible to develop practical uses for the expertise they acquire. From this starting point, students increasingly design their own studies, by selecting options and undertaking research-based activities that they can devise by themselves, with the support from academic staff. Extracurricular activities, seminars, internships and work experience are open to students.
Career opportunities exist in teaching in schools & colleges (after M.Sc.) where any of the science subjects is an important discipline, IAS and other State and Central Govt. Services where knowledge of science subjects is an advantage, careers in organizations/industries where a high level of competence and dependence on Physics is in demand.
