Physics is a part of science, which touches our life in almost every aspect.
Physics played an important role in major discoveries like Radio, Television,
calculator and various other
technological landmarks. Other major inventions like
electric engine,
artificial satellite, colored
photography, cinema, weather forecasting,
solar plate, travel to moon and mars,
treatment of cancer through Laser rays,
Robot, computer are gift of physics.

In the field of tele-communication too physics has played an outstanding role.
With the help of Optical Fiber thousands of people can talk on one line
simultaneously. Today we can travel a lot of distance easily and quickly.

Physics has unlimited dimensions. Everyone needs knowledge of this subject. All
including, chemists, engineers, biologists as well as doctors need a basic
understanding of this subject.

Physical Sciences Eligibility Criteria

Choosing Physics as a career is an excellent but challenging option. There are
lots of scopes for Physics. Persons having sound knowledge as well as degree
from reputed institutions shall find jobs within the country as well as abroad.

To choose physics as a career one needs exhaustive knowledge of the subject for
