in Physics


Course Overview

Ph.D. in Physics is a three-year advanced research program that equips the students with study in Physics and its multiple disciplines like Atomic and Condensed Matter Physics, Particle Physics, Laser Physics and so on.

The research component of the program is a critical component and students need to spend a significant amount of time in the laboratory conducting experiments, analysing data, and writing research papers. In addition, students need to present their research findings at scientific conferences and publish their work in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

The program also provides opportunities to students to gain teaching experience by serving as teaching assistants for undergraduate courses in Physics. This experience is valuable for students who plan to pursue academic careers after graduation.

After completing the coursework and research requirements, students need to write and defend a dissertation based on their original research. The dissertation must demonstrate a significant contribution to the field of Physics and must be approved by a committee of faculty members.

Graduates of a Ph.D. program in Physics can apply in various fields like educational, healthcare, pharmaceutical, research sectors, etc. GLA University encourages the graduates to pursue a variety of careers, including academic research and teaching positions, industrial research positions, and government research positions.
