Master of Science By Research in Physics is a two years full-time duration research course offered by the Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad.
Quantum information theory, Non-Equilibrium quantum systems, Physics of soft materials: Theory and simulations, Plasmonic systems: Experiments and Numerical Simulations. Transport studies in 2D materials and perovskites. Experimental Condensed Matter Physics: Magnetism and Superconductivity, 2D Materials, String theory, and Quantum Field Theory.
Research opportunities include strong exposure to high performance computing platforms, numerical simulations using Mathematica, Matlab, and COMSOL Multiphysics, working with sophisticated experimental facilities such as UHV thin film deposition system, hydrocarbon free RF/DC sputter systems, experimental arrangement to map dispersion characteristics of plasmons using Photon tunnelling and facility for measurements at temperatures down to 1.5 K.
- Eligible candidates possessing the minimum educational qualifications, and satisfying additional criteria set by the Institute from time to time, will be called for an Interview and/or Test by Selection Committees of the respective departments. For candidates who have obtained UG degree 10 years earlier as on the last date prescribed for receipt of the completed application, a departmental test may be conducted.
- The applications of foreign nationals may be considered without a personal interview/test. Based on the academic record and the performance of the candidates in the interview and/or test, the Departmental Selection Committee will recommend to the Chairman, Senate the names of candidates found suitable for admission to the M.S. by research
The minimum educational qualifications for admission to the M.S. by research degree are as follows:
a). Candidates with a Bachelor's degree in Engineering/Technology/Master’s degree in Science with valid GATE score.
b). Candidates having Associate Membership of the following professional bodies are also eligible for admission to the M.S. programme of their parent discipline provided they have a valid GATE score and have passed both parts A and part B of the Membership examinations with a good academic record. (The Institution of Engineers (India) (Civil, Mechanical, Electrical and Electronics,Electronics and communications), The Aeronautical Society of India, The Indian Institute of Metals, The Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers, The Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering and other professional bodies approved by the Senate from time to time.
c). Engineering graduates from IITs and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutes (CFTI) with a CGPA of at least 8/10 (7.5 for OBC-NCL and 7 for SC/ST/PWD) are eligible for seeking admission, without GATE score, to the MS Programme and they can be offered HTRA if selected.
