Course Outcomes  B.Sc Physics
Course Outcomes B.Sc Physics The Board of Studies in Physics (UG) recognizes that curriculum, course content and assessment of scholastic achievement play complementary roles in shaping education. The committee is of the view that assessment should support and encourage the broad instructional goals such as basic knowledge of the discipline of Physics including phenomenology, theories and techniques, concepts and general principles. This should also support the ability to ask physical questions and to obtain solutions to physical questions by use of qualitative and quantitative reasoning and by experimental investigation. The important student attributes including appreciation of the physical world and the discipline of Physics, curiosity, creativity and reasoned scepticism and understanding links of Physics to other disciplines and to societal issues should gave encouragement. With this in mind, we aim to provide a firm foundation in every aspect of Physics and to explain a broad spectrum of modern trends in physics and to develop experimental, computational and mathematics skills of students.
The programme also aims to develop the following abilities:
1. Read, understand and interpret physical information – verbal, mathematical and graphical.
2. Impart skills required to gather information from resources and use them.
3. To give need based education in physics of the highest quality at the undergraduate level.
4. Offer courses to the choice of the students.
5. Perform experiments and interpret the results of observation, including making an
B Sc Programme in Physics, anassessment of experimental uncertainties.
6. Provide an intellectually stimulating environment to develop skills and enthusiasms of students to the best of their potential.
7. Use Information Communication Technology to gather knowledge at will.
8. Attract outstanding students from all backgrounds.
Objectives: The syllabi are framed in such a way that it bridges the gap between the plus two and post graduate levels of Physics by providing a more complete and logical framework in almost all areas of basic Physics.
