  • Musings...

    As the world is striving ahead to develop emerging technologies, Physics offers a solid foundation and essential skills to embrace accelerating paces in science and technology. The Department of physics is established in 1998. Over the last two and half decades, we have grown our expertise and competence in providing solutions to engineering branches and established Bachelor (B.Sc. (Honours) Physics), Master (M.Sc. in Physics with specialization in electronics) and Doctorate (Ph.D. Physics) programs & curricula in core and Applied Physics. The department’s greatest resources are the students that fill its classrooms and state-of-the-art facilities, at present department a has good number of students and research scholars

    To accomplish the goals and strengthen the teaching-learning process, the Department of Physics has distinguished faculty in core/applied experimental and theoretical physics with a doctoral degree from France, IITs, IISER, Delhi University, Thapar University and Post-Doctoral experiences from Japan, the UK, France, Germany, South Korea and IITs.

    Department of Physics has well-established two centers of excellence, Advanced Functional Smart Materials & Materials and Nano Engineering Research. Department received more than 80 Lakhs funding via sponsored projects (SERB and DRDO) and seed money grants in the last five years. Department of Physics is thriving to carry out collaborative, inter/ transdisciplinary research in the cutting-edge areas.

    Students of the Department of Physics are placed in LIDO Learning, People Scout, Intellipaat, and pursuing higher studies in North Dakota State University USA, IIT Kanpur, IIT (ISM) Dhanbad, Delhi University, and Panjab University BHU, Lucknow University for master and PhD programs.
