Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Applied Physics – by Research

Students will acquire advance knowledge in plasma physics & pulse power technology, materials science and condensed matter physics through this programme. Plasma Physics & Pulse Power Technology is an emerging field in fusion energy. This area is gaining vast interest in the scientific society as the world braces to face the critical issues of energy and environment crises. Materials Science is a synthesis of physics, chemistry, and engineering. It is the building block on which modern industry has and will continue to advance.
