We mentor MSc and PhD students - to give moral support to them. We wish to give not only academic knowledge to our students, but also aim to support them beyond classroom. We  aspire that our students  become good Physicists,  good and sensitive human beings, who can serve the society, country and mankind, and bring laurels to us, in the years to come...

We believe that our students are full of potential and capabilities, and they are the assest for our future...
