One of the oldest discipline, physics is the description of complex nature of natural phenomena’s. It is the general analysis of nature conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Because of certain inter-disciplinary research areas, boundaries of Physics are not defined. It ranges from super cluster of galaxies to elementary particles quarks, neutrinos and electrons. Very short time phenomena’s beyond the limit of observations are deal by Physics. It Divulge in observable entities and phenomena’s of nature by its rules, laws as well as their effects present. It creates and measures conditions Varies between hypo and hyper widely.
Experimentation explores new ideas in Physics however phenomenologist models complex phenomenon’s of experiments to theory. The scientific method of physics relies on a priori reasoning as well as a posteriori reasoning and the use of Bayesian inference to measure the validity of a given theory.
Objectives

  • Providing an opportunity to develop and hone problem-solving skills
  • Providing an opportunity to develop and hone presentation skills, particularly as they to pertain to scientific and technical presentation.
  • Providing a solid grounding in the methods of scientific inquiry.
  • Instilling a strong sense of scientific integrity and presenting Physics to all of our students in a way that conveys our individual and collective excitement about our discipline.
  • A breath of courses in both the theoretical and experimental aspects of Physics.
  • A laboratory experience which takes students beyond “cookbook” experimentation.
  • An opportunity for students to take a meaningful role in fundamental research.
  • Close mentoring relationships and preparation specific to helping those students continuing on to graduate school reach their full potential.
