About Physics

Physics is one of the major branches of science, apart from chemistry and biology, which is concerned with the nature and properties of matter and energy. The term has been derived from the Greek term ‘physikḗ’ which means 'knowledge of nature'. It deals with matter and energy along with their interactions in the fields of atomic structure, mechanics, optics, heat, radiation, acoustics, electricity, magnetism, and nuclear phenomena. It is one of the most fundamental and oldest scientific disciplines, whose main goal is to understand how the universe behaves. 

The field intersects with many interdisciplinary areas of research and thus the boundaries of physics are not rigidly defined. This further adds up to the importance of physics as it explains the fundamental laws of the universe and introduces important concepts that are essential for advancement in the studies of chemistry, biology and all other branches of science. From the medicine in which we use X-rays, the radioisotope, the nuclear magnetic resonance imaging, laser and electron microscopes, synchrotron radiation, and electronics all depend on advances made in physics. We could not have built the modern computers without knowledge of quantum mechanics. Today our world is much better connected than in previous ancient times as these days we travel far, communicate quickly and conduct business around the world effortlessly, nothing of these would have been possible without advancement in physics.

Course Details 

By now, it must have been understood that physics is a broad field of study. Based upon different methods of categorizations and varied research analysis there are various branches of physics, which further have their respective sub-branches. 

Some common branches of physics are Classical mechanics, Thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, Electromagnetism and electronics, Relativity, Quantum mechanics, Optics, Condensed matter physics, high energy/ particle physics and nuclear physics, Cosmology, to name a few. The Classical mechanics is the physics of forces acting upon bodies, Thermodynamics studies the effects of changes in pressure, temperature, and volume on physical systems on a macroscopic scale, Quantum mechanics refers to study atomic and subatomic systems and their interaction with radiation, Optics is the study of light, condensed matter physics is the study of the physical properties of matter in a condensed phase, Particle physics studies the nature of particles, Nuclear physics studies the atomic nuclei and Cosmology is the study of how the universe came to be and its eventual fate. In standard courses of high school study we generally start studying physics. After which one has to start specializing one’s path of study, having said that, in case one continues with any branch of science, the subject of physics is definitely going to be encountered at some points at least.

UG/PG degrees 

There are two degrees offered in the department of geology and geography which are an undergraduate course like  either Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) and an master’s degree in the field as MA or M.Sc.

Exams required

Normally to study Geology and Geography abroad, the student is needed to produce their IELTS score or TOEFL score. These are language test and are very important if one wishes to study abroad as it checks the language proficiency of the student.  

Salary details

According to the Institute of Physics (IOP), while the average graduate starting salary in the UK is UK£19,700 (approx. US$29,270), those with a BSc in Physics earn 14% more (£22,500, approx. $33,410), and this increases to 18% more (£23,300; $34,600) for those with a Master of Physics (MPhys).
