B.Sc Hons Physics

B.Sc Hons Physics is an undergraduate Physics course. Physics is the study of the natural science which includes the material and its motion in the space and time, and the study of the forces and energy. The students in this course study of the wide range of phenomena such as from the smallest sub-atomic particles which are neutrinos and electrons to the largest galaxies. The course covers the topics such as Physics of Materials, Statistical Physics, Mathematical Physics, Vibrations and Wave Optics apart from various Physics practical. This course is job oriented in nature. The duration of the course is three years.
