Dr. Snigdha Mishra
Master Degree (M.Sc.)
The Department offers two years Master’s Degree programme consisting of four semesters. The course curriculum has been designed in accordance with the recent guidelines from U.G.C. and in tune with the syllabus for NET and GATE exams. It includes advanced topics like General Theory of Relativity (GTR) and Field Theory. The syllabi have been designed to train the students to pursue their higher career.
After completion of B.Sc.(+3 Science) preferably with Physics Honours and Mathematics/Chemistry, one can apply for this course. Selection of the students to this course is based on the career marks.
Department offers one calendar year i.e. two semesters M.Phil Programme. The course is designed to train the students for higher studies and research in the branches of Solid state, Nuclear and Particle physics. The course consists of two theory papers of 200 marks in first semester and dissertation of 100 marks in the second semester. Paper-I contains Research Methodology paper, which is compulsory. The student has to opt for a special paper (Paper-II) out of Solid State Physics, Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics. He has to work under a faculty member in any one of the special papers mentioned above and submit the dissertation for evaluation by the external and internal examiners.
After passing M. Sc. in physics the students are eligible for this course. The selection is based on entrance test followed by Viva-Voce. During Viva-Voce, the career points in the qualifying examinations are taken into account.

Classes usually starts in January and held on during all working days from 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. Apart from the theory classes weekly seminars are held regularly.
The Department offers this programme in branches of solid state Physics, Nuclear Physics, Particle Physics and Photonics. Candidates seeking admission into this programme are required to possess M.Sc. Degree in Physics with a minimum of 55% marks in aggregate. Then the students are selected through URET/CSIR -NET/ GATE to enter to this programme and undergo a Pre-Ph.D. Course work of one semester/ six months duration. The Research Methodology paper provides the necessary skills/tools to design and solve a problem. After clearing the course work, the student can apply for registration for Ph. D Degree and the Degree is awarded as per the Berhampur University Guideline in tune with the 2009 UGC regulation. In this programme close interaction of the students with the faculties, creates a healthy atmosphere where students can choose their own area under the guidance of a supervisor. The Department provides an excellent environment for carrying out advanced research, thus creating highly committed researchers engaged in producing original research work. Faculties of this department have a good net working round the globe which inspires the students to enhance their ability of doing research work.
The candidates having M.Sc Degree in Physics with minimum 55% of marks in aggregate are eligible to apply for this Course Programme. Our University conducts an entrance test (URET) followed by viva-voce for this programme. Otherwise candidates can enter into the course through NET, GATE or similar type of tests as decided by the university authorities from time to time.
Classes are started in January and held on during all working days from 11.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. Apart from the theory classes weekly seminars are held regularly.
Our department offers D.Sc programme in solid state, nuclear and particle physics. After completion of Ph.D Degree in a preferable branch in physics, one can apply for D.Sc programme in concerned branch. In this program, the candidate will work under a supervisor. However he/she has to work almost independently.
