Our MS is a two-year degree program which requires completion of 24 credit hours of course work normally followed by a year of research culminating in a thesis that is publicly defended. The 24 credit hours course work of the program is designed keeping in view international standards, HEC guidelines and national requirements. The thesis component carries an academic load worth 6 credit hours. 

Our PhD program requires 18 credit hours of course work. After completion of course work, the students are required to pass a comprehensive exam and successfully defend a synopsis that forms the basis of research they wish to undertake over the next three years or so. The students further are required to present two seminars: one on a general topic and one related to their research area but different from the main topic of their research. The primary idea here is for the students to demonstrate the ability to understand and explain concepts at sufficient depth.  

MS and PhD course curricula and detailed course descriptions can be found here and here, respectively.

BS Physics program was started in the year 2014. This is an interesting and rigorous four-year program. The course work of BS Physics is designed according to the vision of NUST (See Vision and Mission of NUST) and guidelines of the Higher Education Commission. The program envisages the uplifting of the standards of higher education in Physics in Pakistan and is in pace with fast growing scientific and technological changes. The courses included in this program are a fine blend of core courses and electives. We also give an option of doing a minor in Mathematics, Nanotechnology or Electronics as a regular part of the BS Physics program. BS Physics curriculum can be found here.
