Department of Physics

The department of physics started in 2017 and has been growing in size and scope to encompass a number of contemporary research areas. Our key focus research areas currently are Condensed Matter Physics (Soft and Hard), Biophysics, Astrophysics, Cosmology and Quantum Field theory. Please refer to the faculty profile pages for more information on the research interests of our faculty members.

Our PhD program in physics was initiated recently. We aim to select motivated and committed students with a passion for research and to train them to be active and independent researchers.

Our undergraduate physics program provides a solid grounding  in the traditional core undergraduate physics curriculum and also an opportunity for students to pursue more eclectic interests in the sciences or beyond. Besides pursuing higher studies in physics, students get the necessary training and skills which can be used in other scientific fields and interdisciplinary endeavors.

The details of courses (graduate and undergraduate) taught at the physics department can be found here.
