The postgraduate program in Physics is the step towards the objective of expanding in many scientific areas intending to build upon and to further the position of the Karunya Institute of Technology and sciences a deemed to be university as one of the leading academic institutions of our country. State-of-the-art teaching learning facilities are available for training the students in the demanding areas of industrial and societal needs. Well qualified faculty with decades of experience with multimedia equipment provide the motivation for the students to learn with added care and support.

The Department of Applied Physics aims to maintain excellence in education which has been the tradition since its inception. The department incorporates this approach to all its activities including curriculum development and teaching methodology. It provides a quality scientific education to instil innovative, effective, creative, and competitive spirit in every student. The main focus of the department is to provide a conducive environment to learn the wonders of the nature through frontier areas of physics.

It aims to produce holistic, value-based physicists by exploring and nurturing their potentials so as to discover and to exchange the knowledge to student community, society and to provide solutions.

In line with the mission of the University, to provide flexible learning opportunities to all, particularly to those who could not join regular colleges or universities owing to social, economic and other constraints, the Post graduate Degree Programme in Physics (M.Sc Physics), offered in the Open Distance Learning (ODL)/Online Learning (OL) mode aims at providing good quality education. It is also suitable for those who are already employed to improve their academic qualification which would enable vertical mobility in their profession.

The focus of the mission is to impart knowledge on the fundamental laws, concepts and principles in advanced physics like condensed matter physics, theoretical physics and experimental physics; to apply them in doing field/research projects in the areas of Energy, Health care, Water and Food to solve the problems of the society.
