The Department of Physics was established in the year 1951. The department has been working towards fulfilling its mission through a synergistic combination of teaching and research. Apart from handling classes for the under-graduate, post graduate engineering programmes, the department has also been conducting short term continuing education programmes for participants from educational institutions and industries. The mission of the department is to contribute to the training of a wide spectrum of students of engineering and technology by offering relevant curricular inputs related to applied physics. Research & development and consultancy activities are being carried out to achieve self- sufficiency in Hi -Tech Materials, devices and instruments. Research work in the area of thin film optical memory devices, MEMS, solar cells etc, crystal growth and non-linear dynamics are in progress
To be dynamic, inclusive and competitive in teaching, learning and research in Physics to ensure that the engineering and technical requirements of the students are addressed.
The mission of the department is to provide Physics courses relevant to the professional needs of engineering and technology students and pursue research and development work to keep the faculty in tune with scientific methodology and stay abreast of recent developments.
