The curriculum for Bachelor of Science (Physics) Degree Program prepared of the view that assessment should support and encourage the broad instructional goals such as basic knowledge of the discipline of Physics including phenomenology, theories and techniques, concepts and general principles. This should also support the ability to ask physical questions and to obtain solutions to physical questions by use of qualitative and quantitative reasoning and by experimental investigation. The important student attributes including appreciation of the physical world and the discipline of Physics, curiosity, creativity and reasoned scepticism and understanding links of Physics to other disciplines and to societal issues should gave encouragement. With this in mind, we aim to provide a firm foundation in every aspect of Physics and to explain a broad spectrum of modern trends in physics and to develop experimental, computational and mathematics skills of students.
The program also aims to develop the following abilities:
1. Read, understand and interpret physical information – verbal, mathematical and graphical.
2. Impart skills required to gather information from resources and use them.
3. To give need based education in physics of the highest quality at the undergraduate level.
4. Offer courses to the choice of the students.
5. Perform experiments and interpret the results of observation, including making an
B Sc Programme in Physics, an assessment of experimental uncertainties.
6. Provide an intellectually stimulating environment to develop skills and enthusiasms of students to the best of their potential.
7. Use Information Communication Technology to gather knowledge at will.
8. Attract outstanding students from all backgrounds.
Objectives: The syllabi are framed in such a way that it bridges the gap between the plus two and post graduate levels of Physics by providing a more complete and logical framework in almost all areas of basic Physics.
By the end of the first year (2nd semester), the students should have attained a common level in basic mechanics, a secure foundation in mathematics, Chemistry(otherwise specified), Languages and other relevant subjects to complement the core for their future courses and developed their experimental and data analysis skills through experiments at laboratories.
By the end of the second year (4thsemester), the students should have been introduced to powerful tools for tackling a wide range of topics in Optics, Laser, Fiber optics, semiconductor devices and circuits. Along with Languages, they should have been familiar with additional relevant techniques in mathematics, Chemistry or Electronics/Computer application and developed their experimental and data analysis skills through a wide range of experiments through practical at laboratories.
By the end of the third year (6th semester)r, the students should have developed their understanding of core Physics by covering a range of topics in almost all areas of physics including Classical and Quantum Mechanics, Electricity and Electrodynamics,
Relativity and spectroscopy, Thermal and Statistical Physics, Nuclear and Particle physics, Solid State Physics, Digital Electronics etc. along with one choice based courses, Open course and had experience of independent work such as projects; seminars etc. and thereby developing their experimental skills through a series of experiments which also illustrate major themes of the lecture courses.
