B.Sc Honors in Physics

B.Sc Honors in Physics


The vision of the physics department is to prepare graduates who are self-confident in their capabilities and understanding of Physics. The department intends to produce graduates for a successful career in the industry, and to provide a strong foundation in physics upon which specialization and interest in research is developed. The department aspires for the leadership role in pursuit of excellence in the frontier of knowledge and research leading to future technological advances. It also strives to enhance Kinnaird college’s tradition of contributing to the female work force in every field of life.


The mission of physics department is to achieve excellence in academics, research and creative activities. To impart a higher understanding of skills, knowledge and integrity in graduates, who distinguish themselves by their professional competence, ethical rectitude and research entrepreneurship. Also, to provide quality education in a conductive learning environment by equipping the individuals with intellectual and technological tools necessary to meet the challenges of the future.


The Physics 4-year program has courses ranging from Classical and Quantum Physics to the latest techniques of Applied and Medical Physics. The courses stress on concept learning and everyday examples in Physics are presented. Students develop the ability to solve problems using physical concepts. Laboratory work includes Thermodynamics, Electronics, Microcontroller, Electricity and Magnetism, Telecommunication, Circuit theory, Transistors etc.
