M.Sc.(Physics): Graduates (10+2+3 pattern) in any stream with Physics/Electronics as a subject. The candidate must have secured at least 60% marks in qualifying examination from a recognized University/institution. Candidates appearing in the qualifying examination can also apply subject to their passing the examination before the admissions are finalized.

SELECTION CRITERIA: M.Sc.: Written Test followed by Interview (Weightage 85:15)
MAXIMUM INTAKE: Ph.D. (Physics): Slots will be notified on University Website
SELECTION CRITERIA: A candidate applying for admission to Full-Time Ph.D. program must have obtained Master's Degree in Engineering/ Technology/ Sciences/ Management/ Humanities & Social Sciences or in interdisciplinary/ trans-disciplinary disciplines with minimum CGPA of 6.75 on a ten point scale in relative grading system or minimum CGPA of 6.00 in absolute grading system or 60% marks in aggregate of any University established by law. Candidates possessing M.C.A. degree are also eligible for admission to Ph.D. program in Department of Computer Science & Engineering, for the component under Faculty of Science. Candidates, who have appeared / are appearing in their qualifying examination and the results of which are yet to be declared can also apply subject to their meeting other eligibility criteria.
However, in all such cases provisional admission may be granted valid up to the end of last teaching day of the FIRST Semester of University, by which date the proof of meeting the eligibility criteria should be submitted by the candidate, failing which the provisional admission granted shall be deemed to have been cancelled. Further, in such case(s) the candidate(s) will have no claim for the refund of fee paid by the candidate except the Mess fee and Hostel fee which would be deducted on pro-rata basis. The provisionally admitted candidate shall not be physically admitted in the University Department while extending the validity of his/her provisional admission till the result of his/her qualifying examination is declared or till the last teaching day of the first semester of the University, whichever happens to be earlier. A candidate applying for admission to full time Ph.D. program must have qualified National level examination such as UGC / CSIR - NET or GATE in concerned discipline or should be sponsored by a reputed organization where he/she is working. However, candidate(s) who are not NET/GATE qualified may also apply for admission to Full-Time Ph.D. program for which they may be considered in case of left over seats. However, such candidates shall not be entitled for any Assistantship from the University.
Candidates applying for admission to Ph.D. on part-time basis must have same minimum academic qualification as required for admission to full time Ph.D. program. In addition to the general eligibility norms, the sponsored (FT & PT) & PT (Non sponsored).
Candidates shall have to comply with the following requirements:
Government employees or employees of PSU or research establishment or private industries (approved by Department Research Committee) with a minimum experience of two years as on date of application will be eligible for consideration as sponsored ( FT & PT) & PT (Nonsponsored) candidates.
All sponsored candidates (FT & PT) are required to produce a SPONSORSHIP CERTIFICATE from their employers on printed letter head to the effect that for the period of his/ her studies for Ph.D., the candidate would be treated on duty with usual salary and allowances and he/she will be fully relieved for the period of study for pursuing his/her studies and that the prescribed fee payable by the candidate will be paid by the Sponsor.
Part time (Non sponsored) candidates are required to furnish an NOC from their employer along with application for admission stating that the candidate is permitted to pursue Ph.D. program on part time basis.
About the Programme
Study & development of physics is important as it plays a key role in the future progress of humankind. Physics is an exciting intellectual adventure that inspires young people and expands the frontiers of our knowledge about Nature. Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world. It contributes to the technological infrastructure and provides trained personnel needed to take advantage of scientific advances and discoveries. Physics is an important element in the education of chemists, engineers and computer scientists, as well as practitioners of the other physical and biomedical sciences. It extends and enhances our understanding of other disciplines, such as the earth, agricultural, chemical, biological, and environmental sciences which happen to be the subjects of substantial importance to all peoples of the world. Physics improves our quality of life by providing the basic understanding necessary for developing new materials, instrumentation and techniques for various applications.
Considering the above the programme has been designed with two elements namely core and specialization and initially the school shall offer Electronics and Material Science as the specializations. Subsequently based on the availability of infrastructure and faculty other specializations can be added without any need to modify the core component.
The programme has been designed broadly on the basis of UGC model curriculum, syllabus for NET and GATE examinations.
Syllabus of various lading institutions has also been used as a reference while framing the curriculum.
The programme has an excellent blend of the core and applied components.
The programme has been designed on core and specialization pattern and initially two specializations namely electronics (Microcomputers and Interfacing) and material science shall be offered with 10 students for each specialization.
Based on the expertise of the faculty more specializations can be added in future.
