Scope

Career in astrophysics can lead in three areas scientific, technological and operational. Scientific positions will often be available in governmental or transnational space agencies- including astrophysical and cosmological data analysis, mission conception, mission control, astronautical programmes and advanced concept development. On the technology side of things may often be in the complete lifecycle of a mission, from feasibility studies, design, manufacture and launch. In operations side the companies exist purely to operate satellites, lease bandwidth and sell data to other companies.

Students can pursue further studies such as M.Sc, Ph.D. and research work in Astrophysics. Aspirants can find career opportunities in the following organizations:

  • Indian Space Research Organization, ISRO
  • Space Physics Laboratories
  • The Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, VSSC
  • Space Applications Centres
  • Association of Bangalore Amateur Astronomers, ABBA

What Students say about us

  • Scrutiny of evidence – The duty you are paid off!!

    Are you the same person! Who likes to watch late night Investigating thrillers and spending whole night solving the same mystery by putting up the logical science theories and not making up yours or somebody’s misty cloud!! If relatable? Then yep guys. Forensics is what you are really looking forward. It is that common logic and scientific facts which bring leads to justice delivery system. We all have seen famous prosecutions and executions, but the actual story behind these cases..is what Forensic science talk about! A person’s consideration towards the ability of Observation, keen scrutinizing skills and rapid execution of practical knowledge is all you have to cherish in this journey. It brings peace when you know your scientific theories and prespective have lead an innocent dancing off the bars and a guilty walk into the bars ashamed of his/her sins!

  • Why VGU Forensic science dept. is better than other universities
    In Vivekananda Global University (VGU), we students as budding forensic scientists, collect, preserve and analyse scientific evidences during course of an educational investigation. We perform dual role of visiting the scene of crime and collect the evidences our self and also occupy the laboratory role, performing analysis on the evidences collected.
    Beaing a practicing student of forensic science believe that some modern T.V. shows has changed individual’s expectations from the field of forensic science , sometimes unrealistically an influence is made which is termed as CSI effect in the language of science.
    Being a student of VGU, I have been provided with a fair approach of how to effectively and realistically analyse a scene of crime more authentically without any exaggeration.
