Programme Outcome:

Upon the completion of degree in Physics students will be able to explain the fundamental principles and concepts of physics that include classical mechanics and electromagnetism, thermodynamics and statistical physics, principles of wave and optics, and quantum mechanics. Graduate will understand how those principles relate to forefront areas of research including astrophysics and fiber optics, particle and nuclear physics, materials physics, network science, and nanoscience and nanotechnology. They will be competently able to apply this knowledge and analyze physical systems by constructing mathematical models in which they identify the essential aspects of a problem, formulate a strategy for solution, make appropriate approximations, evaluate the correct-ness of their solution, and communicate their work clearly. Students will have the ability to use basic computational techniques for modeling physical systems including those that do not have analytical answers. They will explore physical systems by setting up experiments, collecting and analyzing data, identifying sources of uncertainty, and interpreting their results in terms of the fundamental principles and concepts of physics. Students will have the capacity to communicate physics concepts, processes, and results effectively, both verbally and in writing.
