Post Graduate PHYSICS

Gurudas College is one of the two non-Government colleges affiliated to Calcutta University offering post-graduate course in Physics. This course started in the academic session 2017-18. At present, this department has seven full time and three guest teachers offering their expertise in the day-to-day functioning of the department. We offer two different specializations namely Condensed Matter Physics and High Energy Physics in the final year. In the present academic session, there are 32 students in the post-graduate section.

Admission Criteria: Minimum 55% in Hons. in Physics (50% in case of SC/ST/PWD candidates).
