Vigyan Vidushi (VV2021) programme in Physics is a three-week programme for women students in the first year of their two-year M.Sc. degree in Physics or the fourth year of their Integrated B.Sc.-M.Sc. degree in Physics.

About the Programme

This programme will provide these students exposure to advanced physics topics and research opportunities, and encourage them to take up research in physics as a career option. The students will also get an opportunity to be taught, inspired, and mentored by successful women scientist role models.

Duration of the online programme: 31 May – 19 June 2021

Eligibility

The VV2021 (Physics) programme will be directed towards students in the first year of their M.Sc. degree, or in the fourth year of their Integrated B.Sc. – M.Sc. degree in Physics. (Those already enrolled in an Integrated M.Sc- Ph.D. programme will not be eligible.)

Selection of Participants

About 40 women students will be selected from nationwide applications.

The selection will be based on

  • The academic profile of the applicant,
  • Recommendations of two referees, and
  • A 200-word writeup on the applicant’s interest in physics

An attempt will be made to ensure a wide distribution across educational institutions in different parts of the country.

Structure of the Programme

The basic structure of the VV2021 (Physics) programme will be like an online summer school. There will be normally six courses, each of which will run for a week. In every week, two courses will run in parallel. A course will typically consist of lectures in the morning, and approximately equal time devoted to tutorials in the afternoon. Students may be divided into smaller groups during the tutorials. There will be online interaction sessions in the evening.

While some of the courses will focus on strengthening basic understanding of physics essentials, most of the courses will be on topics that may not be normally covered in M.Sc. classes in a University. Even when the topics may be common, the elements of research or unique perspectives of active researchers will be essential parts of the courses. The courses are expected to lead to a review of current research in the area towards the end. The tentative topics that will be covered in VV2021 (Physics) will be:

  • Quantum Mechanics
  • Statistical Mechanics
  • Experimental Techniques in Physics
  • Introduction to Astronomy and Astrophysics
  • Introduction to Laser and Plasma Physics
  • Introduction to Quantum Computation

In addition to the regular courses, the VV programme will have the following unique features:

  • Special lectures by women scientists, as well as on women scientists that would serve as role models
  • Ample opportunities for interacting (online) with subject experts, including many women scientists
  • Special mentoring dealing with gender-related issues
  • Exposure to Physics Education Research
