The Physics M.Sc program at IIT Gandhinagar is rather unique and has several distinguishing features compared to other standard M.Sc programs in the country. The program centers around a modern curriculum which incorporates a significant research component along with developing the foundations of theoretical, computational, and Experimental Physics.


The focus of the 2-year M.Sc. Physics program is to develop a deep understanding of core areas of Theoretical and Experimental physics, as well as to take advantage of the flexibility of our modern curriculum to introduce a wide range of advanced topics to the students. The flexibility allows students to choose advanced electives and chalk out a path towards a specialization of their choice. We recognize that the aspirations of students are varied, and thus after the second semester, the student (if he/she passes a certain minimum CGPA) has the choice of pursuing a "Research Track" or a "Regular Track" in the final two semesters. 

The former incorporates more research credits with carefully chosen electives that speak to the students' interest, while the latter bolsters the students' basics by introducing more coursework in lieu of enhanced research. The complete list of courses and the path for both the tracks can be viewed here.

The institute, and the physics discipline, also hosts a number of visiting scholars from world-renowned Universities. These might result in multiple "Short Courses" and other lecture series that we encourage the students to participate in and gain from.
