Department of Physics

Conceptual understanding of one of the oldest science virtues

Department of Physics

Department of Physics at Chandigarh University is an absolute treasure chest of knowledge for students pursuing physics as a field of study. Right from inception, the department has attracted faculties with diversified expertise in the fields of Nuclear and Particle Physics, Material Science, Electronics, Nanotechnology and Computational Physics. What else makes us elite is our:

  • Highly experienced faculty with a wealth of knowledge & experience
  • Rigorous training in theoretical concepts in various fields of study, and their applications by way of tutorials and assignments
  • Well equipped classrooms and laboratories for experiential learning
  • Mandatory Dissertation & Six weeks Summer Training for industry see-through
  • Facilities for research work leading to the Ph.D. degree in different branches of Material Science, Electronics, Nuclear and Particle Physics, Nanotechnology and more
What makes Physics Department unique?

The Department is full of qualified and experienced faculty, dueto which the Department has a very strong work culture and ethos. Some faculty members are alsosupervising their PhD students in International universities abroad, who regularly visit the Departmentfor some period of time. Any student who enters the Ph.D., M.Sc. or B.Sc.(H) Programmes, gets an opportunity to interact and learn from the faculty, which is the strength of the Department, and whichmakes this Department stand out. Due to this, the Department alsoattracts some of the best students from various parts of the country. Senior faculty in the Department have done post doctoral work, and taught at universities abroad. They work as a team in areas such asNuclear and Particle Physics, Condensed Matter Physics/Material Science and Electronics. Most of them are very active in both teaching and research, and are regularly publishing works in high qualityjournals. The Physics Department runs PhD, M.Sc., and B.Sc. (hons.) programmes. The students whojoin the Department for the PhD, M.Sc., and B.Sc. (Hons.) programmes will get the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Physics, and be mentored by the most qualified and experienced faculty, who havea wealth of knowledge, follow modern teaching methods and follow most standard books in all subjects.The teachers are highly devoted and highly regular, and painstakingly ensure that they cover the entire syllabus of the course they are teaching. They in turn go out of the way to ensure that the students notonly learn the basic fundamentals, but are also able to apply the same to problem solving throughtutorials. The students thus develop problem solving skills, which makes their conceptual foundation inthe subject strong. All this is essential for them for CSIR- JRF and NET exams in which most of themappear for admissions in PhD programmes, as well as finding suitable placements in organizations.
