Physics is one of the prominent natural sciences. It studies matter and its fundamental constituents. It also focuses on the motion of matter and its behaviour through space and time, and the related aspects of energy and force.

This subject is based on the theory that the physical laws of matter, energy and the fundamental forces of nature influence the interaction between particles and physical entities, such as molecules, atoms and the subatomic particles. Physics intersects with areas such as mechanical engineering, aerospace science, etc. and generates knowledge needed for future technological advances. It is research in Physics that has given human beings the understanding of areas such as differential geometry, special theory of relativity, and space-time.

The three-year Bachelor of Science in Physics (Honours) programme offered by the Department of Applied Science & Humanities covers modules aligned with basic mathematics and basic physics such as mechanics, electromagnetism, wave physics, thermal physics and quantum physics. The programme also helps students to explore and immerse themselves in the newly developing and useful areas of nanotechnology, superconductivity, and fibre optics. This programme has a balanced inclusion of theoretical classes, lab work, research component and visits to the companies that are working in areas related with Physics such as aeronautics, geophysics, and astronomy.

Students also gain internships and develop practical skills that help them get suitable jobs in the future. Seminars, workshops and project work form important parts of the programme structure. Experimentation in specialized labs particularly suited to studying matter and force give the ideal research environment to students for innovation.
