Department of Physics

Department of Physics

The Department was launched with the BSc degree course under the Mahatma Gandhi University in 2000. In 2004, the department launched the MSc Programme in Physics (Self Financing). The Department offers an undergraduate programme in Physics (Model II Computer Applications under the Choice Based Credit and Semester System) and a postgraduate course with specialisation in Electronics. The faculty of the department consists of three permanent members and five guest members. Every year about 30 students are admitted to the B Scprogrammeand 25 students are admitted to the M.Sc. programmeon the basis of merit and reservation policy of the government. The past students of the department are holding teaching positions in academic institutions and also holding good positions in various IT sector.

>> Students will demonstrate proficiency in mathematics and the mathematical concepts needed for a proper understanding of physics.

>> Students will demonstrate knowledge of classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, and thermal physics, and be able to apply this knowledge to analyze a variety of physical phenomena.

>> Students will show that they have learned laboratory skills, enabling them to take measurements in a physics laboratory and analyze the measurements to draw valid conclusions.

>> Students will demonstrate understanding of the applications of numerical techniques for modelling physical systems for which analytical methods are inappropriate or of limited utility.

>> Students will be capable of oral and written scientific communication, and will prove that they can think critically and work independently.

>> Students will demonstrate an understanding of the impact of physics and science on society.

>> The students will cover a range of topics in almost all areas of physics including quantum physics, solid state physics, computational physics, electronics etc. and have experience of independent work such as projects; seminars etc. They will develop their understanding of core Physics.

>> Read, understand and interpret physical information – verbal, mathematical and graphical

>> Impart skills required to gather information from resources and use them

>> Perform experiments and interpret the results of observation, including making an assessment of experimental uncertainties
