Physics is one of the most important and the core discipline of Natural Sciences, which finds application in almost every discipline of other Natural sciences. The Technology with its varied Disciplines has revolutionized the lives of human kind, as out shouts of physical sciences in its different dimensions.
          The knowledge of Physics and its applications is therefore a very important as for as the developing societies are concerned. Keeping in view the development of societies in general and scientific society in particular, the Central University of Kashmir (CUK) has started 5-year Integrated B. Sc. -  M. Sc  Programme in Physics with semester system following the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). The Department of Physics started its first batch of Integrated B. Sc.- M. Sc programme in 2015 at  Transit Campus Sonwar, Srinagar. The department intends to nurture the aspiring students to pursue their carrier in higher education leading to the basic research programmes for the development of society.  
This is the first programme of its kind started in the valley  & in fact in Northern India, CUK has taken the lead by starting 5 year integrated courses in other disciplines as well. The students are admitted to the programme through Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET), after completing the Higher Secondary (10+2) Education.  The main aim of this integrated course is to train the students from a very grass-root level at the young age so that they can start their career at an early stage and progress is proper direction. Under this system, the students have a good deal of freedom in designing their own curriculum to suit their needs. Graduates from the department are expected to join distinguished careers in Science & Technology and occupy leading positions in research institutes all over India and abroad.
           Our current areas of research are Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, Photonics, Materials Science, and Theoretical Nuclear Physics.  The Department has teaching laboratories and is intending to include modern experimental setups for achieving high standards in learning. The curriculum is framed in such a way that students are able to achieve sound theoretical foundation and problem solving skills in all subjects. Due emphasis is given to presentation skills, writing skills. The students shall also be inspired to compete on graduate level national exams like GATE and NET JRF/ NET to make them eligible to avail different fellowships and pursue research in future.
