2nd trimester: Advanced Quantum Mechanics, Statistical Mechanics, Field Theory, Numerical Analysis and Advanced Experiments Laboratory.

3rd trimester: Particle Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Nuclear Physics and Project.

It is mandatory for the scholars to attend all the courses. The contact hours for all the theory courses is about 40 hours each and each carries 100 marks. In the last trimester, the scholars do a project under the guidance of one of the members of faculty. At the end of the term the scholars write a short report on their project and give a seminar.
