Physics tries to reveal the secrets of nature, from the microcosm of elementary particles to the macrocosm of astrophysics. Between these two extremes, there is a wealth of subjects, ranging from biophysics at the cellular level and medical research to the development of new understanding in fields such as nanotechnology and climate. At present, these and many other areas are advancing in exciting ways. If one wishes to dive into an area of physics and work independently with a thesis in a specialization and thinks it is exciting, this Master's degree programme provides the opportunity.
This two year programme is imparted across four semesters.
After completion, students get opportunities to work as scientists in national laboratories and organizations like BARC, DRDO, SSPL, ISRO, SAC, NARL of Department Of Space, IUAC, IGCAR Kalpakkam, RRCAT Indore, VECC Calcutta, UCIL, NPCIL, NFC, HWB, AMD, etc. In research institutes such as PRL Ahmedabad, IPR Gandhinagar, IUCAA, SINP Calcutta, ARIES, Uttarakhand, IIG, CLCR, UGC DAE CSR. And constituent laboratories and institutes of CSIR like NPL, NGRI, RRL, NIS, NISTADS, IMMT, NISC, AIR, etc. The scope also exists in soil physics and agricultural physics as specialization, teaching positions in secondary and higher secondary schools, degree colleges, poly techniques, engineering colleges and state and central universities, prestigious institutions including IITs, IISc and IISERs.
