Scheme of studies:
Duration: Four semesters of 16 weeks each. (2 semesters of course work and two for research work leading to dissertation)
Total Credit hours: 50
Total Courses: 8 each of 3 credit hours
M. Phil. Dissertation: 26 Credit hours
A: For all M. Phil. students PH-601 (Methods of Mathematical Physics) and PH-602 (Electrodynamics I) will remain compulsory. Total 6 credits.
B: For the remaining 6 courses (18 credits) at least 3 courses must be taken in the area of specialization (namely: Condensed Matter Physics, High Energy/Particle Physics, Quantum Optics/Quantum Information Theory, Plasma Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics). The department will specify the list of courses for each specialization.
M. Phil degree in Physics from a Pakistani University or an equivalent degree from a recognized University. A college/university teacher or a member of research staff of a research organization holding a Master’s degree in Physics, who has shown undoubted promise for research, may also be considered for admission. These candidates will, however, be required to complete the course work of 24 credit hours.

Total Courses: 6 each of 3 credit hours
Total Credit Requirement: 18
A: For all Ph.D students PH-603 Advanced Quantum Mechanics and PH-616 Statistical Physics will be compulsory. (6 credit hours)
B: Students who have not had the equivalent of PH-601 and PH-602 at the M. Phil. level would be required to take these two courses as well.
C: For the remaining 12 credit hours the student will be required to select at least 3 courses (9 credit hours) from the approved list of courses for his/her research area. The student may be allowed to select one course may be selected from outside this area of specialization on the advice of the supervisor. These courses shall be from the list of approved M. Phil. /PhD courses.
