Bsc Physics
Bachelor Of Science in Physics
Introduction
The Department of Physics, in accordance with the general objectives of the University offers a programme of study which would satisfy the needs and aspirations of the society from which its students are drawn. The programme is sufficiently flexible to permit and encourage students to develop interest in relevant fields and specialist option topics. These specialist options/topics are specifically oriented towards industrial applications and the overall pattern of employment of physics graduates. The department also offers basic courses and service courses to science and engineering oriented schools.
