Applied Physics involves the application of Physics principles to the design, construction and operation of various systems and devices. A physicist generally works at any industrial or research establishments such as those dealing with semiconductor devices, solar cells, electronics and product processing. The job involves supervision of equipment operation and maintenance, troubleshooting operational problems related to process, and undertaking modification work for product and safety improvement.
The Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Applied Physics programme stresses the need for a strong foundation in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, followed by a thorough coverage of basic science courses such as Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Electromagnetics. In the later years of study, students are exposed to Optics, Quantum Mechanics, Semiconductor Devices & Technology, Solid States Physics and Measurement & Instrumentation.
In addition to the above, at the end of their studies a student will have the opportunity to take special topics in one of these selected areas of interest:
To produce scientific workforce in the field of Applied Physics with the potential to become leaders in industries and R&D with emphasis in Oil & Gas, Renewable Energy and Nanotechnology.
