B.Sc. Physics

Stories you may like

Bachelor of Science in Physics is an undergraduate Physics course. Physics is a natural science that involves the study of matter and its motion through space time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. More broadly, it is the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. The duration of the course is three years and the syllabus is divided into six semesters. The degree course is very important and valuable as it is job orienting in nature that opens wide spread scopes for the candidates after its completion not only in educational field but also many other areas. The course is being offered by many colleges/universities throughout the country.

How is B.Sc. Physics Course Beneficial?

•    This course enables the students to integrate their knowledge with computer science, electronics, chemistry and mathematics. On completion of this course, students will be able to get enough knowledge to excel in educational and in industrial areas.
•    Candidates have teaching options both at high school and elementary level. The current shortage of teachers trained in the physical sciences is likely to continue for several years. So this is a bright area for them.
•    They can become meteorologist who has to study of the causes of particular weather conditions; uses computerized and mathematical models designed to make short and long-range forecasts concerning weather and climate patterns.
•    They can also find employment in academic institutions and government research organizations along with in industries such as aerospace, engineering, manufacturing, oil and gas, space exploration and telecommunications.


•    For seeking admission to the Bachelor of Science course in Physics, candidates must have completed their higher secondary examination in science stream and they must have secured good percentage of marks in the physics examination at their 10+2 level.

Course Suitability

•    It is absolutely essential that a physicist be proficient with mathematics. You don't have to know everything-that's impossible-but you do have to be comfortable with mathematical concepts and how to apply them.
•    Second, you should take as much high school and college mathematics as you can reasonably fit into your schedule. Especially, take the entire run of algebra, geometry/trigonometry, and calculus courses available, including Advanced Placement courses if you qualify.
•    Those who have team work spirit, habit of working and can work for long hours also can go for the course.
•    They should have problem solving skills such as analytical approach to problem-solving, use imagination and creativity to try new approaches to solve challenging problems.
