A very keen observation, focused experimentation and single minded devotion have helped progressive generation of researchers to acquire a vast treasure of knowledge. As we go to higher classes or educations, we will encourage that the methods of science is characterized by objectivity, openness to change, innovation, self-correction and dynamism. Hence, it is important in these formative years for you to learn science by doing (develop problem solving and experimenting skills to unfold unknown situations). To appreciate this, we have included a number of effective exercises and activities. These can carry out by using readily available materials to get a feel of the real physical principles in operation. This will also provide us a solid opportunity to explore on how a scientist works. Physics has always been an exciting subject, and called second order science (also when it is called second order science, then discussing its importance is valueless). Some fundamental
successive discoveries in the early half of the 20th century brought in effective changes in our concept of space, time, matter and energy. Another phenomenological feature of the previous century is the reduction in the time gap between a new discovery and its applications from a decade or so to a few years due to close linking of science and technology. Therefore, future development in knowledgeable society will mostly depend on the availability of well trained scientific human capital powered with entrepreneurship capabilities. This should provide us enough motivation to study science, do well and participate in the process of sustainable growth and national development.
The department of Physics, School of Material Science and Nanotechnology, Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University, is one among the recently created centre in the University. The School is successfully running M.Sc., M.Phil, and Ph. D programmes in Physics, and is relentlessly carrying out number of academic activities under the leadership of Prof. Asgar Ghazi, Dean School of Material Science and Nanotechnology. Since the inception of this young department, its faculty members have started acquiring research fund from leading funding agencies of country.
The courses in Master in Physics imports knowledge in core science to enable pursuit of a teaching career in Physics. In addition, it provides opportunity to carry out a research dissertation in any of the following sub-specialities: Material science & Nanotechnology, Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics, Laser Physics & spectroscopy. The syllabus is designed in such a way that M.Sc pass out students can qualify prestigious National level tests like NET/SET/GATE/JEST to secure Ph.D admission in any reputed institutes of country. The pass out students can also qualify various job related exams JKPSC,BARC etc.
