A working knowledge of Physics up to Std XII is mandatory for entrance examinations not only for undergraduate professional courses, but also for post graduate courses in institutions like the I.I.T.
 
The applications of Physics in Electronics, Computer technology, Communication, LASERs, Energy systems, Nuclear Technology, Space mission etc are well know and the current need of promoting interdisciplinary research sees its importance in emerging areas of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Nano-biotechnology etc. Fundamental physics helps us understand how universe was formed & how it is evolving.
