Physics Doctoral Program Learning Outcomes
In addition to Master Program Learning Outcomes, graduates of the physics Doctoral program, upon successful completion, are expected to be able to:
Demonstrate expertise in a well-defined area of research within physics.
Conduct advanced research in theoretical or experimental physics including deciding on the appropriate timescales and responding and adapting to changing circumstances.
Generate new scientific insights or innovation of new applications of physics research.
Demonstrate mastery skills and knowledge in general introductory physics.
Write and publish scientific research in specialized journals.
The PhD program in Physics provides students with an opportunity to obtain the highest possible expertise in various fields in Physics through advanced graduate courses and research. The department has an excellent cluster of highly trained faculty and has an adequate number of state-of-the art experimental setups and computational facilities. After running successful undergraduate and Master’s programs for several years, the PhD program in the Department started with the first intake in the year 2009. Various specializations available for students to pursue their studies are: Soft Matter and Solid State Physics, High Energy Physics and Cosmology, Liquid Crystals, Materials Physics, Magnetism and Nanoscience. Students who intend to pursue PhD in any of the above fields must have earned at least a Master’s degree in Physics with a GPA of 3.00 or above on a four point scale from a recognized university.
