The Department of Applied Sciences at The NorthCap University offers undergraduate programs in BSc (Hons) Physics, BSc (Hons) Chemistry, BSc (Hons) Mathematics, BSc Mathematics with Specialization in Data Science and post graduate program in MSc Mathematics. Apart from offering these programs, department is offering doctoral program in the thrust areas of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. We also offer some foundation courses to engineering students, before promoting them to their respective engineering departments. The focus of our programs is to enable the professionals to lead in academics, research and industries. The programs have been benchmarked with similar programs offered by other reputed organizations in terms of credits and course content. The USP of the department is its highly qualified, experienced and research oriented faculty. All faculty members hold PhD degree, mostly from IIT’s, NIT’s and other reputed organizations of the country.

The curriculum of our programs is enriched with the inclusion of the courses of liberal studies, basics of computer programming, projects, summer internships, MOOC Courses, tinkering lab, general proficiency and a wide range of program and open elective courses. We devise the curriculum of our
programs in consultation with honorary distinguished professors from renowned organizations. The curriculum is being periodically revised with the possibility of exploring different forms of knowledge through theoretical, practical and other productive means. The department has well equipped
laboratories in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, to support the theoretical classroom learning.

The best part is we allocate a faculty mentor to each student of the Department to help them in curricular and co-curricular activities. Students participate in the co-curricular activities through the Professional Societies of the Department. We have the student chapters of international societies like Optical Society (OSA) and Enactus for the holistic development of the students. We have a strong alumni connect in the department. After pursuing their degree the students are either placed in MNC’s, or they prepare and qualify the higher education entrance exams like JAM, NET, GATE, conducted by IIT’s.

The department has modern infrastructural & instructional facilities to create a modern learning environment. The laboratories are equipped with world class equipment’s and facilities based on the latest technology pertaining to different disciplines. The department is actively engaged in research and has received funding from agencies like DST, DRDO etc. for developing research labs and organising national and international conferences. We believe in quality publications and the faculty members are publishing their research work in International journals of repute. We are consistently engaged in continuous learning and developing the skills of our faculty through organising faculty development programs, conferences and workshops.

Department of Applied Sciences is committed to provide the best academic and professional opportunities to the students and help them to achieve rewarding career opportunities. We welcome you to the Department of Applied Sciences as undergraduate or post graduate or research student and we hope to be part of your success.
