M.Sc. Physics

In 1999 the department was raised as PG department with the introduction of M.Sc. Physics with Electronics as specialization. In 2013 the specialization was changed to Material Science. The Master of Physics with specialization in Material Science is a two year Postgraduate programme which follows a credit and semester system (PGCSS, M.G University, 2019 admission). The programme is designed to give a higher knowledge on almost all the fundamental areas in physics and to deepen the student’s knowledge in different aspects of Physics including phenomenology, theories and techniques, concepts and general principles. This four semester course helps students to improve their ability to read, understand and interpret physical information in verbal, mathematical and graphical and can also deepen the knowledge in the methodology related to Physics. Also, students can improve their experimental and data analysis skills through a wide range of experiments through practicals in laboratories.
