M.Sc. in Physics of Materials

With the development of new technologies, materials play an increasingly important role in modern society.  Thus, Materials Science has now become established as a discipline in its own right as well as an important area in the fields of Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.  A sound knowledge in Science and Technology of materials is necessary for the efficient use of materials in industry.  This aspect is particularly important for a developing country like Sri Lanka in achieving its development goals.


The minimum requirement for enrolment is
(a)    a B.Sc. Special Degree in Physics or Chemistry, or
(b)    a B.Sc. General Degree in Science with Physics as a subject, or
(c)    a B.Sc. in Engineering Degree with Materials Science component, from a recognized university, or
(d)    any other equivalent qualifications acceptable to the Postgraduate Institute of Science (PGIS).

The number of candidates admitted to the programme in a given year will depend on the number of places available in that year.  The selection will be based on merit.  Candidates should be proficient in English as English will be the medium of instruction for the programme.


local candidates    Rs. 90,000/-
SAARC countries    US $ 3,000/-
other countries    US $ 6,000/-

Programme fees shall be paid in two installments (50% at registration and the next 50% within six months from registration). Other payments including registration fee, medical fee, library subscription, examination fee and deposits (science and library) should be paid according to the procedure stipulated by the PGIS.


This is a full-time programme consisting of course work and a research project. Course work will be conducted over a period of two semesters of 15 - weeks each (during weekends and/or weekdays). The entire programme duration will be about 15-18 months inclusive of 3-6 months for the research project.  Satisfactory completion of a minimum of 24 credits of course work (with a GPA of not less than 3.00) is required for the programme in addition to the six credits allocated for the full-time research project (If the student obtains a GPA in the range 2.75 to 2.99, then he/she is eligible for the Diploma in Physics of Materials but not the M.Sc. Degree). Continuous attendance is compulsory during the period of research work. After successful completion of the research project, the student is eligible for the award of the M.Sc. Degree. Based on the performance by students in the taught courses, PGIS may upgrade the registration of such students to M.Phil. or Ph.D. programmes if they so desire.
