Department of Physics & Astronomy

The Department has 17 full-time faculty members actively engaged in research in the areas of Biophysics, Nanotechnology, Experimental Physics, Gravitational Wave Astronomy, Relativistic Astrophysics and Physics Education. Besides excellence in research and teaching, the department places special emphasis on the involvement of students, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, in research. Opportunities for generous financial support are provided to deserving students at all levels.

I chose to study Physics with Astronomy because of the physics department's reputation. The department also attracts lecturers at the top of their field who are more than willing to impart their vast knowledge.
