DEPARTMENT OF Physics

The Department of Physics has been effective since the establishment of the college in the year 1989. Since 2016, the department is offering university level undergraduate course B.Sc (Hons.) in Physics.

Vision:

To build a foundation to impart high quality research standards in pure and applied physics.

Mission

  • To train the students to become competent and motivated physicists.
  • The department focuses in incorporating scientific temperament with a practical approach in the area of education and researchin order to meet ongoing development in science.
  • To maintain a research environment, in which key scientific and technical innovation are generated

The department is currently running B.Sc (Hons.) in Physics under CBCS Mode.

The department has state-of-the-art research lab wherein the students build their foundation on the principles of physics thereby enhancing the scientific temperament. It is equipped with:

  • Mechanics Lab
  • Thermal Physics Lab
  • Optics laboratory
  • Digital and Analog Lab
  • Modern Physics Lab
  • Computer Lab (under constru.)

These laboratories are well equipped with instruments such as He-Ne laser, polarimeter, optical benches, spectrometer, Sodium & Hydrogen lamp, Oscilloscopes, function generators, power supplies etc to aid the learning process and meet the practical requirements.The departmental computer lab is under construction. At present it is enriched with Free/Open Source Software such as FORTRAN 90, SCILAB, LATEX, and GNUPLOT etc.

Departmental Library: The Department has a collection of academic books maintained within the labs. Students and teachers both can use this facility during practical's and otherwise to prepare their lectures.

ICT Uses for the faculty & students The Department has 4 systems with Internet facility. They are available for both staff and students to access web.

The department conductselections for the departmental council and unanimously elects Class Representatives (CR’s) every year. The office bearers of the departmental council and CR’s for the session 2018-2019 are as follows

The Department of Physics organizes its Technical fest every year in collaboration with three other departments namely Chemistry, Mathematics and Statistics under the canopy of “TRAP”. The Physics society “TECHNOYS” and student council of the department organize various simultaneous events and interscollege competitions during the fest. A lot of participation from different colleges is being observed during the fest.
