Department of Physics was established in 1891 and the PG Department was started in the year 1951. This is the frontline department in the college. We offer undergraduate as well as postgraduate physics courses. All courses offered by the department run on semester system in which evaluation of student’s performance is made on the basis of a CCE and theory exam at the end of each semester as per the UGC/State Govt. norms. In order to encourage the students to pursue higher studies several students are sent for summer training in premier research institutes. Further, our department is actively engaged in current research, particularly, thin films and nano structured materials, Plasma Physics and other thrust area is Materials Science. About 15 students are enrolled for their Ph. D. work under the supervision of faculty members of the department.
