For Women and Men
Duration: 3 Years
This programme leads to the integrated postgraduate programme in (subject to meeting the eligibility criteria): M.Sc. in Mathematics (Women and Men) / M.Sc. in Physics (Men only) / M.Sc. in Chemistry (Men only)
- In the first two years of study, all three subjects (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry) are taught
- In the third year, the subject of specialization will determine the final degree awarded: B.Sc. (Hons.) in Mathematics or B.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics or B.Sc. (Hons.) in Chemistry. The courses will be from the chosen area of specialization.
Honours in Mathematics (Year 3): Students strengthen their basics of Mathematics as they pursue advanced courses such as Abstract Algebra, Linear Algebra, sophistications of Complex analysis, Topology, Numerical Methods etc. and software laboratory courses such as Introduction to C Programming and Data Structure and File handling using C during the last two semesters. Those who wish to pursue Computer Science may choose elective courses from a list of well structured elective courses. Moreover, students with eligible CGPA at the Honours level with creditable performance will get admitted to the M.Sc. in Mathematics programme. Besides getting very good training in Mathematics, this programme provides opportunities to Mathematics graduates for specialization in Computer Science or Actuarial Science.
Honours in Physics (Year 3): The 3-year B.Sc. (Hons.) in Physics offered by the Department of Physics has been designed to provide a strong foundation in fundamental physics concepts that form the very basis of advanced scientific inventions. The curriculum presents a blend of science and technology, with the physics theory courses complemented by hands-on practical courses conducted in well-equipped laboratories. The unique program also offers training in advanced electronics, microprocessors, and assembly language programming through its theory and lab courses. Additionally, students are trained in computational techniques and simulations. The program also offers two software courses on Python programming spread over two semesters, that train the students in coding and using programming skills for various applications, through a mini-project. The program aims at inspiring students to pursue Science at the Master’s level and beyond but also prepares them to branch out into allied fields like electronics, technology, and programming
Honours in Chemistry (Year 3): The emphasis is on teaching the fundamental principles of Chemistry that cover topics under each of the major branches of Chemistry such as Inorganic, Organic and Physical, and giving training in appropriate experimental methods. Electives (including interdepartmental) are being introduced for Chemistry Honours students that enable the incorporation of emerging fields into the syllabus as and when the need arises. The graduating student will be exposed to almost every aspect of the subject – Theoretical, Applied, Instrumental, Computational and Experimental.
