The program consists of courses in basic physics (classical and quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics and electrodynamics) at the Master`s level, allied with exposure to computation, data analysis and basic astronomy. The students will also be introduced to radio astronomy, with an emphasis on areas studied with NCRA`s major facility, the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT). Selected students will be expected to participate in observatory related and academic activities at NCRA and GMRT, and will be given campus accommodation and a stipend.
