Want to do your bit in ensuring energy security through nuclear power? Are you a post graduate and looking forward to an M.Phil program in physics? Desirous of specialising in the field of nuclear physics? Learn here the details of the course M.Phil in Nuclear Physics and the prospects it holds.

Course Name: M.Phil Nuclear Physics
Stream: Science
Course Category: Physics
Duration: 1 - 2 years


Nuclear energy as we know has tremendous potential. If employed to full capacity, has the potential to solve the energy problems that most of the world still faces today. Over the years technology has made nuclear power a lot safer to use and is thus being used in many developed countries providing them with energy security. India too is working in a similar direction and has been generating electrical power through nuclear energy. New projects are coming up and more are to come. It’s the safety factor that restricts nuclear power from being used at full potential. The M.Phil course in nuclear physics addresses all these issue and more and the challenges the world faces in meeting its ever growing energy needs.
