M.Sc. (Physics)

M.Sc. Physics is a two year postgraduate program. It includes specializations in areas such as Quantum Physics, Particle physics, condensed matter physics, Nuclear Physics, Theoretical physics, electronics, nanophysics, astronomy and astrophysics. Physics deals with the fundamental phenomena of nature: space, time, mechanics, matter and energy. Physics enables us to develop an understanding of everything from the nucleus of an atom to the structure and origin of the universe. Physics addresses the meaning of everything. From quantum information and a grand unified theory, to dark matter and high energy particle physics, this subject can take you anywhere. Over the course of this degree the student will delve into the building blocks of matter and the vastness of the cosmos. You will learn how fundamental physics is applied across different disciplines and how it connects to new advances in engineering, medicine and mathematics.

Fundamental physics is a strong underpinning for careers in many branches of the physical sciences. M.Sc. Physics students can get jobs in Research labs (BARC, ISRO, DRDO etc), academic and education institution, atomic and space organization, meteorology departments, medical industry etc. They can also chose their career as Research Scientist, school teacher, Lecturer/professor, medical physicist, radiation physicist etc. Many aspects of computing and telecommunications require physics postgraduate. A degree in physics would open up avenues in scientific instrument manufacture, electronics and development of computer systems. Career opportunities also exist in UPPSC and other State and Central Govt. Services where knowledge of science subjects is required. Many IT companies such as Infosys, Wipro and CTS are recruiting M. Sc Physics graduates for software jobs. If anyone wants to pursue higher education after M.Sc, one can opt for Ph.D courses in Physics.
