According to GS Chilana, professor of physics, Ramjas college, “With a lot of focus in electronics, mathematical physics, mechanics, electricity and magnetism, this programme offers a much broader range of opportunities to students. The advantage of pursuing physics (hons) is that it is logical and principle based and involves mathematical applications. Here, there is no scope for mag up and students do well in areas of IT, banking and other applied fields such as nuclear physics and nanotechnology”.
