Courses and Eligibility
Being a physicist is a long drawn career, one needs exhaustive knowledge of the subject and thus minimum post graduation. Post graduates with specialization are required in the industry and for research a PhD. Various courses like B.Sc. in Physics and B.Sc. in applied physics are offered at many institutes. M.Sc. in physics, applied physics, bio physics, medical physics, engineering physics, nuclear physics, astronomy and many more are offered at institutes of repute.
You will study Physical quantities, standards and units, laws of gravitation, mechanics and properties of matter, heat, wave motion, electromagnetic radiation, light, sound, magnetism, static electricity, current electricity, atomic physics, nuclear physics, astronomy and space science etc.
The Master of Science and other post-B.Sc. programmes at the IITs offer high quality post-graduate education in respective disciplines and admission is made through the Joint Admission Test to M.Sc. (JAM).
