Integrated Master of Science (M. Sc.) – Physics

The department offers a five year Integrated M.Sc. Physics program. The entry to this program is after 10+2 (or equivalent) level. The candidates are selected on the basis of merit in the entrance examination held at many centers in the country. There are maximum of 40 seats available in the program. The course curriculum of this program is based upon the UGC’s Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). Under the CBCS system, students are taught the basic disciplinary fundamentals through the courses known as Core courses. The advanced version with different specialization in the multiple branches of physics are taught through Discipline specific elective courses. Also, keeping the learning interdisciplinary in nature, it is desirable for the students to choose ample number of courses  other than the core discipline under Generic Elective category. On the completion of 3 years in this program, the students are free to withdraw with a B. Sc. (honors*) Degree or continue* in the integrated M.
