Physics is a branch of natural sciences. It deals with physical matter and energy; and the natural laws that govern the behaviour of matter. The core theories of physics are: Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics and Relativity. There are many more branches of physics including nuclear and particle physics.

Physics plays a key role in the future progress of humankind. Physics education and research in all countries are important because:

  • Physics is an exciting intellectual adventure that inspires youth and expands the frontiers of our knowledge about nature.
  • Physics generates fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world.
  • Physics contributes to the technological infrastructure and provides trained personnel needed to take advantage of scientific advances and discoveries.
  • Physics is an important element in the education of chemists, engineers and computer scientists, as well as practitioners of the other physical and biomedical sciences.
  • Physics extends and enhances our understanding of other disciplines, such as the earth, agricultural, chemical, biological, and environmental sciences, plus astrophysics and cosmology - subjects of substantial importance to all peoples of the world.
  • Physics improves our quality of life by providing the basic understanding necessary for developing new instrumentation and techniques for medical applications, such as computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, ultrasonic imaging, and laser surgery.

Thus, physics is an essential part of the educational system of an advanced society. Indian society has embraced a knowledge economy and its economic growth rate is one of the highest in the world. India has shown the highest level of progress in engineering, space, nuclear, aeronautics and information and communication technologies. The subject of physics has played a major role in the development of the country and India has produced 2 Nobel laureates in Physics. In this context, universities across the country offer Physics as a subject at undergraduate and physics as a programme at the postgraduate level.
