MS in Physics
Master of Science (MS) program in Physics consists of two groups, namely general group and thesis group. The program contains 36 credits with one year duration for general group and 42 credits with one and half year duration for thesis group. Courses for the program are offered with the approval of departmental academic committee. Dissertations are also offered for the top students of B. Sc. (Honors) merit list by the departmental academic committee. Course registration has to be done within fifteen days after the completion of B.Sc. (Honors) fourth part examination with the course coordinator appointed by the departmental academic committee. The registration must be approved by the Chairman of the Department.
1.5-year MS Program (Thesis Group)
Students in this group have to take seven theoretical courses (26 credits) from the offered courses. Out of seven courses, one course must be related to the thesis work. Thesis students will have a chance to change one course to make it thesis related after choosing the topic of the thesis. In each course, 70% marks is earmarked for course-end final theory examination, 20% for tutorial, and 10% for class attendance. The thesis carries 12 credits and the viva-voce on the dissertation carries 2 credits. Two credits are earmarked for general viva-voce on theoretical courses.
Distribution of Credits for the Thesis Group
|Course||Unit||Credits per Unit||Total Credits||Grand Total|
|Thesis presentation and viva voce||1/2||4||2|
N.B. Each student will have to submit their thesis within SIX (06) months after the successful completion of their theoretical course’s exam.
1-year MS Program (General Group)
Students of this group have to take six theoretical courses (24 credits) from the offered courses and one and half unit laboratory courses (6 credits) and a half unit project (2 credit). Each 4 credit course carries 100 marks of which 70 marks is earmarked for course-end final theory examination, 20 marks for tutorial, and 10 marks for class attendance. Each 2 credit course carries 50 marks of which 35 marks is earmarked for course-end examination, 10 marks for tutorial on experiments, and 5 marks for class attendance. The project carries 02 credits and the viva-voce on the project carries 2 credits. Two (02) credits are earmarked for general viva-voce on theoretical courses.
