M.Sc. Physics

M.Sc Physics

M.Sc. in Physics is a 2-year postgraduate program that focuses on the importance to the students of a detailed knowledge of physics and physical phenomena of the world. A Master of physics also prepares you to choose a specialized subject for your Ph.D. by exposing you to various fields of physics in great detail. A degree program in the area of Physics will cover the following topics:

  • Classical mechanics
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Theory of fields
  • Statistical mechanics
  • Quantum field
  • Astrophysics
  • Cosmology
  • Condensed matter physics

Additionally, the students pursuing this degree are also given detailed training in applying mathematics to physics. This is done specifically since both these subjects are inter-connected in the teaching prospectus. 

Scope of Masters in Physics

The scope of a master's in physics is very large because right from the health care departments in hospitals to the various stations of NASA- physics is required everywhere. Holding a master's degree in your subject gives you an edge because you have detailed knowledge of a specific subject topic rather than a general overview of the issue.

Career options for Masters in Physics:  

There are many career options for someone who has done their Masters in Physics. Detailed knowledge of physics gives you a scientific perspective on many different things, and many industries require that. Therefore, one can apply it to many fields, including astronomy, space, oil and natural gas, electronics, automobiles, and telecommunication. Some job roles that you can have after finishing your master in Physics are:

  • Observation scientist
