The Department of Physics is one of the few departments the university has started with. Since then, within a short span of time, the department has significantly grown in size and strength. Apart from conducting M.Sc. Physics and Ph.D. Programmes, faculty members have been invited by reputed national and international institutions for giving talks on their research contributions. They also have a large number of publications in reputed national and international journals and have authored and edited national and international journals and books. The department also takes care of Physics courses in B.Tech. Programmes for five different branches of Engineering and Technology and also involves many of these undergraduate students in some basic researches.
MSc in Physics
Intensive insistence on mastery of the domain in theory and praxis
Proactive backing to bring creative ideas to fruition in the fabrication labs
Live projects as pre-eminent learning tools
Rigorous internships / work experience in industries and universities, national and international
Areas of Specialization
- Nano Sciences
- High Energy
This two year programme covers virtually every theme in Physics - from elementary particles to the largest super clusters of galaxies. The curriculum includes all the advanced disciplines of Physics such as Quantum Mechanics, Solid State Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Mathematical Physics and Nuclear Physics. This alone should enable a Physics Graduate of Don Bosco University to face with confidence all competitive examinations like NET, SLET, GATE etc.
- Graduation in Science with 50% of the aggregate and Physics as a subject. Candidates with honours in Physics will have an advantage.
- Provisional Admission: Applicants who have not yet obtained their Bachelor’s Degree also may apply for admission. Such candidates would be offered provisional admission until they furnish evidence of fulfilling the eligibility criterion stated in (1) above within 3 months of the commencement of the programme.
- 14 important general papers (both in theory and laboratory)
- A number of papers (both in theory and laboratory) in the specialisation offered [i.e., Electronics Nano Sciences and High Energy, keeping in mind the scenario of today’s growing technological industry]
- Highly qualified faculty members both for general and special papers.
- Proper laboratory facilities of general experimental papers
- Sophisticated laboratory facilities with special experimental papers
- Continuous evaluation system in terms of sessional
- Field visit, assignments, and presentations
- Mandatory research project
- Centre of Plasma Physics – Institute for Plasma Research (CPP-IPR): The Department collaborates with CPP-IPR on various levels. A portion of theory paper and a full laboratory paper are taught at CPP-IPR. CPP is under the Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India.
- Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), Kolkata: Students do summer and winter internships at VECC, Kolkata. Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre is a premier R & D unit of the Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India and one of the constituent institutions of Homi Bhabha National Institute.
- The Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA), Pune: IUCAA holds workshops on Astrophysics at the University campus for the students of MSc Physics. The IUCAA is an autonomous institution set up by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India to promote the nucleation and growth of active groups in astronomy and astrophysics at Indian universities.
- Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE), ADBU: A portion of curriculum in theory and practical are taught by the faculty members from the Department of ECE.
