Department Of Physics

Physics is the branch of science dealing with the inanimate world and its natural phenomena.

Physics motivates individuals to learn more about the world & is the systematic investigation of the physical world around us to discover the laws of universe. Physics has very wide scope in research and technology.

The Department of Physics was established in the year 1958. It is enriched with highly qualified faculty members. They use modern techniques and methods of teaching and attend various refresher courses, seminars, and workshops in order to be abreast with recent trends in Physics. Department also organizes workshops, seminars and project work to develop interest and enhance the knowledge of students in different fields of Physics.

The changing social needs and development of new technologies have opened up new communication services leading to automation in industries and offices. The spectacular developments in Electronics, digital Electronics, Computers, Switching Devices, Power Electronics and Communication system are responsible for this resolution facilitating universal Connectivity.

Thus to provide students a sound understanding of existing Electronics theory and Computer Devices undergraduate courses in Electronics and Computer Maintenance are run by the Department.
