Department of Physics

  • Indian Institute Of Technology Madras , Chennai

Welcome To Our Department

The Department of Physics at IIT Madras, established in 1959, is now one of the largest and most active in the country. We have 56 faculty with expertise across various disciplines of physics, both traditional and emerging, working on problems of foundational and applied interest. Our faculty further the cause of research in frontier areas with their unique contributions, by being a part of nearly a dozen Centers of Excellence seeded by IIT Madras. Teaching and training future scientists, especially physicists, is one of the major goals of the Department. Our department is thus well known for its core undergraduate and masters programs, which are now augmented by interdisciplinary dual degree MTech programs. At the apex is our regular doctoral (PhD) program, with a current strength of nearly 200 research scholars.
