Integrated B.Sc.- M.Sc. (Physics) with specialization in Material Science aims to equip students both with the fundamental as well as advanced concepts in Physics as well as hands on training in synthesis and characterization of novel materials - finding applications in domains including but not limited to health, sanitation, defense, clean energy harvesting (solar cells, fuel cells, hydrogen storage, etc.), aerospace, semiconductors industry, etc. Students will also have opportunity to learn computational materials science, in which they will be equipped with various simulation software /techniques and numerical algorithms to simulate materials via computers. The students enrolling for this program will have opportunity to work with faculty members having exceptional academic and research credentials in theoretical and experimental materials science. Students will also have access to the state-of-the art material synthesis and characterization instruments installed in the campus. 

Academic Framework

The foundation of higher learning at UPES since its inception has been to explore and promote areas of learning that are innovative and future focused. This has led to constant evolution in facilitating creative and collaborative learning engagements for students through realignment of curriculum and exploration of virtual tools, and open-source courseware; thereby creating borderless learning and access to limitless information.

The new curriculum framework at UPES, ABLE (Academic Blueprint for Learning Excellence) is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. The learning is segmented into core subject studies, core specialism studies, minors/exploratory subjects, and signature and life skills learning. The latter three are offered by the newly-instituted School for Life.

SFL (School for Life) is an intrinsic part of the composite UPES student experience and facilitates learning and education that is a balance between what students want, and what is needed of them as future global citizens and leaders of tomorrow. With courses designed to equip students with lifelong learning skills, a focus on a wide range of contemporary issues, and a mandatory social and professional internship experience that is unique, UPES believes in igniting to inspire the best version within an individual to better the world.

PEO-1: Students will have significant opportunities in various service domains at national and international level, and can work as scientist, analyst, quality controller in academic and research organizations. 

PEO-2: Students will have leadership quality to handle all kind of circumstances in diversities by providing interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary learning environment. 

PEO-3: Students will be continuous learner to learn and adopt new skills and techniques to overcome the problem related with new technologies. 

PEO4: Students will be able to formulate, investigate and analyze scientifically real life problems along with ethical attitude, which works in multidisciplinary team. 

PSO-1: Understand advanced level physics particularly classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, nuclear and high energy physics, solid state physics, materials science and electronics. 

PSO-2: Drive advanced education, research, and development in materials science and engineering, including materials discovery and/or processing, and in any professional disciplines that benefit from an understanding of MSE. 

PSO-3: Apply materials’ solutions to enhance or radically improve existing and future technologies.
