Physical Sciences and Allied Fields


Physics is a part of science, which touches our life in almost every aspect. Physics played an important role in major discoveries like Radio, Television, calculator and various other technological landmarks. Other major inventions like electric engine, artificial satellite, colored photography, cinema, weather forecasting, solar plate, travel to moon and mars, treatment of cancer through Laser rays, Robot, computer are gift of physics.

In the field of tele-communication too physics has played an outstanding role. With the help of Optical Fiber thousands of people can talk on one line simultaneously. Today we can travel a lot of distance easily and quickly.

Physics has unlimited dimensions. Everyone needs knowledge of this subject. All including, chemists, engineers, biologists as well as doctors need a basic understanding of this subject.

Physical Sciences Eligibility Criteria


Choosing Physics as a career is an excellent but challenging option. There are lots of scopes for Physics. Persons having sound knowledge as well as degree from reputed institutions shall find jobs within the country as well as abroad.

To choose physics as a career one needs exhaustive knowledge of the subject for this is the subject of conception. Even Simple graduates in physics are under-qualified for industry jobs. They cannot even think to pursue research at this level.

At least a Postgraduate degree is prerequisite for the job. Postgraduates with a background in particular specialization are required by the industry. Postgraduates in physics or related disciplines can also enroll themselves in PhD programs in physics, astronomy, astrophysics, plasma physics & technology etc.

Physical Sciences Job Prospects


A physics graduate basically do research work in various R&D establishments and government departments. Those who are having specializations in Astrophysics, astronomy, geophysics, nuclear physics, meteorology can make career in respective fields.
