Programme/ Course Outcome

PHYSICS

AIM

Physics at B.Sc. degree level provides students with a contemporary and coherent understanding of energy, matter & their interrelationship. The broad aim of physics syllabus are to equip the students with knowledge and understanding the concepts rather than the ability to remember facts so that they may have reasonably comprehensive and complete grasp of principle of physics. The new syllabuses also develop observational skills and relate the students’ knowledge of concept to quantitative measurements by including a well balanced practical course. Basically it aims to reveal the simplicity underlying complexity.

OBJECTIVES

The Students should be able to:
  • • Aquire knowledge and understanding of physical concepts rather than the ability to remember facts.
  • • Develop the habit of scientific and rational thinking.
  • • Desire physical phenomena in terms of models, laws and principals.
  • • Develop the habit of scientific and rational thinking.
  • • Recognize the operations of scientific principles in establish practical applications to apply acquired knowledge, experience and skills to new situations in a novel manner.
  • • Develop observational skill, confidence in using scientific equipment and relate the knowledge of scientific concepts to quantitative and physical measurements.
  • • Helps the students feel that the advancement in physics.
  • • Develop attitudes such as concern for accuracy and precision, objectivity and enquiry.

B.Sc. Physics Programme

The B.Sc. programme in physics is offered in six semester with in a period within a period of three academic years .

The programme includes,

  • • Core courses
  • • Common and complementary courses
  • • Open courses
  • The core courses will be conducting from semester 1 to 4, the common and complementary courses conducting during semester 1 to 6. The open course is for 5th and 6th semester.
