Minor in Physics

Students can get admitted into the Minor programme at the end of 2nd year. However, they can start doing the minor courses from the beginning of 2nd year itself even before they apply for admission into the minor programme. Students can use their open electives to do their physics minor courses, if they wish.
To complete the minor they have to complete 3 core courses & 2 electives. Details are given below.
Following courses are mandatory and form the core of the Minor programme,
  • Electromagnetic theory-I (PHY F212)
  • Quantum mechanics - I (PHY F242)
  • Statistical mechanics (PHY F312)
Students have to complete 2 electives from the pool of courses below,
  •  Optics (PHY F213)
  •  Introduction to Astronomy and Astrophysics (PHY F215)
  •  Electromagnetic Theory (PHY F241)
  •  Mathematical Method of Physics (PHY F243)
  •  Classical Mechanics (PHY F211)
  •  Quantum Mechanics - 2 (PHY F311)
  •  Computational Physics (PHY F313)
  •  Theory of Relativity (PHY F315)
  •  Solid State Physics (PHY F341)
  •  Atomic and Molecular Physics (PHY F342)
  •  Nuclear & Particle Physics (PHY F343)
  •  Lasers and applications (PHY F418)
  •  Quantum Information and Computing (BITS F386)
  •  Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos (BITS F316)
