B.Sc. Physics | Tribhuvan University

Bachelors of Science in Physics is a 4 year annual degree program awarded by the Institute of Science and Technology, Tribhuvan University and its constituent campuses. The duration of the degree program was changed from 3 years to 4 years from the year 2069 BS (2012 A.D). Physics deals with the study of physical properties of the universe ranging from smallest subatomic particles to the biggest faraway galaxies. It is the study of time, matter, energy, space, atoms and the interaction between them to figure out the most fundamental and basic principle of the existence of our universe. Physics is crucial in understanding the makings of our world and the world far beyond us too.

Scope and Career Prospects

The advantageous thing about studying physics is that you can pursue a career in diverse range of fields. Physics has wide range of applications in the practical field of many disciplines. Bachelors in physics lay the groundwork for students to pursue master’s degree and PHD and have careers in research and academia. Physics graduates can have career in vast ranging sectors, some of which are noted below:

  • Space careers as an Astronaut
  • Research scientist - research field might include astrophysics, particle physics, Nano technology, aerospace, dynamic physics, applied physics, theoretical physics, experimental physics and many more.
  • Health care industry within areas of radiation, nuclear medicine and building medical technologies alongside biomedical engineers
  • Engineering careers in manufacturing based industries
  • Energy sector as experts in extracting fossil fuels and developing cost effective ways to create renewable energy
  • Geophysicist and meteorological career
  • Technology careers in fields of robotics, nanotech, virtual reality, etc.
  • Educators of physics in school and higher level

But in Nepal, Physics graduates mostly have teaching careers at the numerous educational institutions and most of the BSc. Physics graduates go on to pursue master’s degree so they can have better opportunities all around the globe.
