Welcome to IIT Gandhinagar

Located in the capital of the vibrant state of Gujarat, the physics discipline of IIT-Gandhinagar conducts research in a wide range of energy scales ranging from Quantum Gravity and Gravitational Wave Astronomy down to Higgs physics and hot QCD. We offer a Ph.D. in all areas of faculty expertise, in addition to an M.Sc program in physics and various undergraduate and inter-disciplinary courses.

Physics is the study of the laws of nature, and the process of discovering new ones. We invite eager young minds to pursue the various pages to know more about us and the activities here at IIT-Gandhinagar. Prospective students are encouraged to apply using the links given in the sidebar. Thanks for visiting, and have a pleasant stay!
