M. Sc. in Physics

Overview of the Program

Physics is a natural science which deals with the behavior of matter, energy and the natural laws. The core theories of Physics are: Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. There are many more branches of Physics like including astronomy, biophysics, atmospheric physics, nuclear physics etc.

Therefore, Physics plays a key role in the future progress of humankind either in education or research in the world because of its characteristics features such as,
1. Physics is an exciting intellectual adventure that inspires young people and expands the frontiers of our knowledge about nature.
2. Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world.
3. Physics contributes to the technological infrastructure and provides trained personnel need to take the advantage of scientific advances and discoveries.
4. 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.
5. Physics extends and enhances our understanding of other disciplines, such as the earth, agricultural, chemical, biological, and environmental sciences, astrophysics and cosmology - subjects of substantial importance to all peoples of the world.
6. Physics improves our quality of life by providing the basic understanding necessary for developing new instrumentation and techniques for medical applications such as computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, ultrasonic imaging, and laser surgery.

Thus, physics is an essential part of the educational system of an advanced society. Indian Society has embraced knowledge economy and its economic growth rate is one of the highest in the world. India has shown highest level of progress in engineering, space, nuclear, aeronautics and information and communication technologies. The subject of physics has played a major role in the development of country and produced 2 Nobel laureates in Physics.

In this context, Universities across the country offer Physics as a course at undergraduate level and as a programme at postgraduate level.

M. Sc. (Physics) at REVA UNIVERSITY has been designed to meet the human resources needs of existing and futuristic research establishments, industries and academic institutions. The programme aim is to produce graduates with higher order critical, analytical, problem solving and research skills; ability to think rigorously and independently to meet higher level expectations of the society. The programme deals with courses in classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, material science, semiconductors, electrodynamics and related areas.

Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The aim of the programme is to produce postgraduates with - advanced knowledge and understanding of Physics; higher order critical, analytical, problem solving and attitudinal skills (transferable) to meet expectations of research establishments, relevant industry and academia or to take up entrepreneurial route. Hence,

The Programme Educational Objectives are to prepare the students to:

  • work alongside of engineers, healthy professionals, scientists and other professionals to help solve scientific problems
  • work as techno manager, administrator, or an entrepreneur with further training and education
  • pursue doctoral research degrees to work in colleges, universities as professors or as scientists in research establishments

Programme Outcomes (POs)

After undergoing this programme, a student will be able to:

  • Explain the behavior of physical systems under various environmental and physical conditions 
  • Interpret Laws of Physics and develop mathematical models of systems to predict behavior and estimate performance
  • Use modern tools and techniques for the solution of mathematical models and prediction of behavior of physical systems
  • Instrument and perform physical experiments for testing and evaluation of systems
  • Operate and monitor performance of machines and systems
  • Conduct research under supervision
  • Manage information, develop technical reports and make presentations,
  • Choose appropriate online programmes for further learning, participate in seminars and conferences
  • Lead a  team  to  successfully  complete  a  project  and communicate across teams
  • Set up his/her own enterprise
