BSc Physics

The Bachelor of Physics is a three year programme consisting of six semesters. The programme follows a Choice Based Credit System. The programme gives a basic understanding on the basic topics in physics, which helps one to go for higher studies and shapes ones skills in analysing evidences and solving problems which help them get placed at several industries and allied areas.


A pass in higher secondary education in Science stream with Physics as one of the subject.

Programme Features
  • Common Course English in the first four semesters
  • Complementary Courses – Mathematics and Chemistry in the first four semesters
  • Open Course in Semester V which could be opted from various courses offered by other arts and science departments
  • Choice based Course in Semester VI
  • Project Work in the core subject in Semester VI
Additional Courses offered

During the programme, students are also offered following courses

  • Certificate Course  (30 hours) -  ‘Basic Engineering Skills’
  • Enrichment Module (15 hours) -  ‘Quick Fix – A Course in Quantitative Aptitude’
Course Oppurtunities

During the course many students are getting opportunities like Summer/Winter Fellow ships at premier institutes in India and also complete internships from other institutes. They also get opportunities for participating in international student exchange programs. More than 70% students every year after the course go for higher studies in pure Physics, specialised topics in physics, management studies etc.  Students represent various State level and National Level Physics Talent Search Examinations.
Many students get selected for higher studies in foreign universities. One student each from two previous batches got MaMaSELF  Erasmus Mundus International Scholarship and one got selected for T P Nedungadi International Internship award. After the course many students get placed at firms like INFOSYS, TCS, Sutherland etc.
Department also conducts several events to foster the intellectual, communication and leadership qualities among the students.
