The second half of the twentieth century has witnessed a tremendous development in the field of Physics education and research particularly in developing countries. The Central Department of Physics (CDP), Tribhuvan University has been helping to bring the world of Physics education and research to interested Nepalese students since 1969 by offering theoretical Physics course in the Master's level. In spite several difficulties and limitations, CDP has produced more than 3000 physics graduates. These graduates are actively involved for the development of nation in various sectors. At present, about 800 physics graduates are continuing their education and research in abroad (mostly USA). In this way, our graduates are contributing globally. ..
The developing countries are facing similar challenges: regular power cuts, failing internet connections, poor water quality, traditional way of food processing, never-ending traffic jam, unplanned construction, outdated and mainly theoretical educational methods, etc. The brain drain is often the only chance to make a scientific career for Nepalese physics graduates. But there are opportunities closer to home. Physics graduate can improve efficiency of solar panel available in the market. They work on water treatment to improve the quality. A systematic study of internet towers and their better connectivity surely improve the internet connection. Similarly there is huge scope for physics graduates in the food processing industries. The physical properties of eatable materials should be studied in order to keep it for a long. A thorough analysis and modeling of stock exchange can make a better prediction for the futu..
