Applied Science & Research

OVERVIEW Applied Science & Research

School of Applied Science & Research Consists of the following Departments:

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS

Mathematics is a major achievement of the human mind, a subject with its own structure and elegance, worthy of pursuit for its own sake. On the other hand, mathematics has always been used to help us understand the world and the society in which we live, and with the development of the computer, applications of the mathematical methods of thought have become even more prominent.

At A P Goyal Shimla University, we stress the relationship of mathematical thinking to other fields of intellectual and practical endeavor. We emphasize the importance of clear and careful expression to mathematical reasoning and working on projects as part of a team.

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

The Department of Physics provides high quality physics education, producing well prepared postgraduates & engineers who are confident in their abilities and understanding of physics. The Department of Physics promotes physics research and creative activities of faculty, students and staff. The Department of Physics engages with the University community and the larger community providing greater understanding of the nature of physical science, an appreciation of physics in everyday life, and technical expertise.

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY

The coherent, cohesive and homely environment of the Department is attributed to the students, faculty and staff with tremendous potential and opportunities to grow academically, emotionally and spiritually. The Department started functioning in 2012 for teaching undergraduate (B.Tech) students. M. Sc. Programs were initiated in July 2014. Department is striving to emerge as a premier Centre of Chemistry teaching and research.

Courses offered under Master Programmes are:

Course Offered

M. SC PHYSICS

“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind ” -Albert Einstein Science is the study of nature and natural phenomenon. Here at A P Goyal Shimla University, Department of Applied Sciences offers M.Sc (Physics) which is two years postgraduate programme with following specifications:

A P Goyal Shimla University (AGU) is offering this programme with an intake of 30 seats according to Himachal Pradesh Government norms.

Duration : 2 Years

Eligibility Criteria : Bachelor’s degree from a recognized University (with Physics & Mathematics) as per H.P State Govt. Norms.

M. SC CHEMISTRY

An important goal of the chemistry program is to help you, the chemistry student, develop the skills of writing about chemistry; keeping laboratory records; and reporting the results of laboratory measurements, literature searches, and theoretical analysis. To help you develop these skills, the Chemistry Department requires a graduated series of writing exercises in the laboratory courses, culminating with the requirement of full, publication-like reports of experimental work carried out in the advanced lab courses. While the exact format of the full reports is left to the discretion of individual instructors, all formats will include at least the following parts: a brief abstract of the experimental project and its most important results; description of methods and materials; presentation of results, including tables and graphs of data; discussion and interpretation of results (including analysis of uncertainty), with appropriate conclusions drawn and justified; and list of references cited in the report. The aim of writing exercises in the lower-division courses is to build, step by step, the skills that you will need in order to write each part of a full report.

A P Goyal Shimla University (AGU) is offering this programme with an intake of 30 seats according to Himachal Pradesh Government norms.

Duration : 2 Years

Eligibility Criteria : Bachelor’s degree from a recognized University (with Chemistry) as per H.P State Govt. Norms.

M. SC MATHEMATICS

A P Goyal Shimla University (AGU) is offering this programme with an intake of 30 seats according to Himachal Pradesh Government norms.

Duration : 2 Years

Eligibility Criteria : Bachelor’s degree from a recognized University (with Mathematics) as per H.P State Govt. Norms.

CAREER POSSIBILITIES

PHYSICS

The study of physics is the starting point for many career opportunities; training in physics allows immense flexibility for the future in terms of additional study and in the ability to fit into jobs and job training in many areas. A traditional path is to continue the study of physics in a university to earn a Master of Science or a doctor of philosophy degree – a necessary achievement to be qualified to teach and continue research in a college or university. Some students choose to add a B.Ed. or M.Ed. degree in education so that they are certified to teach high school physics.  With the discipline and training that goes with a physics degree, students can go into prestigious physics careers, medicine, engineering, teaching, nuclear engineering, space and atmospheric research, acoustic and petroleum explorations, finance, computer science, biophysics, etc. Physics majors are hired by universities, national laboratories, observatories and science museums, industry (e.g. electronics, building design, medical instrumentation, communications, engineering, noise pollution, sound recording, film production, etc.) semiconductor, petroleum, mining, and exploration companies, biomedical firms (biotechnology, environment, pharmaceuticals), defense agencies and contractors, consulting and Information Technology (IT) firms.

CHEMISTRY

The employment possibilities for chemistry postgraduates are as numerous as they are varied. Chemists are employed by various industries viz. Computers and Telecommunications, Fine and Heavy Chemical Manufacturing, Food and Beverage Production, Mining and Metallurgy, Petroleum, Pharmaceuticals/Drugs, Plastics, Pulp and Paper, Cement Industries etc.

In these industries, the chemist’s role could be concerned with Quality Control, Industrial Hygiene Management, Manufacturing Process Control and R&D.

Chemists are also hired by government agencies in the areas of:

Education, Forensic Investigation, Mineral Analysis, Public Health, Research and Development Support for Resource Industries, Technical and Analytical Information Development,Water and Air Quality Management and many more..

MATHEMATICS

In the past half century, there has been rapid increase in the importance of mathematics to our society. The need for trained mathematicians at all levels is on the rise as the use of computers and automation has spread to almost all sectors of our economy. Nowadays, technological, engineering and business problems are often of such complexity that they require a high level of mathematical treatment. In the past, advanced mathematics was generally restricted to the physical sciences and engineering, but today there is an ever growing demand for mathematical expertise in the biological and social sciences, as well as in finance and business management. Mathematicians can opt varied careers in Actuarial science, Information technology and computing, Business management, consulting and Teaching.
