B. Sc. in Physics

This is a three year (six-semester) aided programme, in which the student has to earn 120 credits to be eligible for the award of the B.Sc. degree in Physics. The degree is awarded by the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam. The curriculum of B.Sc. Physics includes all core papers in Physics as stipulated by MG University. Upon successful completion of this programme, the student is expected to gain an appreciation of the physical world around him and the discipline of physics, curiosity, creativity and reasoned skepticism as well as understanding links of Physics to other disciplines and to societal issues. Moreover, we aim to provide a firm foundation in basic aspects of physics and to develop experimental, computational and mathematical skills of students as well as to be able to explain the broad spectrum of modern trends in physics.

MSc. in Physics

This is a two year (four-semester) aided programme, in which the student has to earn 80 credits to be eligible for the award of the M.Sc. degree in Physics. The degree is awarded by the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam. The curriculum of M.Sc. Physics includes all core papers Classical Mechanics, Mathematical Physics, Electrodynamics, Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics. It also have courses in electronics, condensed matter physics, computational physics, digital signal processing, microprocessors, spectroscopy, nuclear physics, and optoelectronics, in addition to a laboratory component which deals with a rather comprehensive list of experiments in the area of general physics, electronics and programming. The curriculum is designed so as to enable the student to gain an in depth learning in all major topics. Other than these, internship, study tours and lab visit related to different courses and a comprehensive viva and research project are other components of the curriculum. Our students who pass out are getting ample opportunities to find job or pursue research.
