Department of Physics
Department of Physics The Department of Physics offers an M.Sc. programme with specialization in frontline areas of modern day technology. The Physics department also provides more than 10 different courses of UG and PG level for other Schools of the University. Students are trained to develop foundational concepts and knowledge in basic and engineering sciences. Laboratory hours complement their study by providing them with hands-on experience on various aspects of the subject and upgrade their skills by exposing them to the latest technological developments. Additionally, students have the opportunity to get engaged in research projects with faculty members starting from their undergraduate level. Research at our department helps students develop essential analytical and problem solving skills to deal with the current and future technological challenges.
The department is actively engaged in research in the following fields: Nanomaterials, Transparent Conducting Materials for Optoelectronic Applications, Photonics, Photovoltaics, Sensors, Composite Materials, Coatings, Condensed Matter and Biological Physics.
About Physics Laboratories:-
With 2 well equipped labs, Principles of Electronics and Modern Physics labs; each with a capacity of 60 students, and with continuous moderation and upgradation by well qualified faculty we try to improve the better understanding in Physics among our students.
