PHYSICS

Physics is the most fundamental of all the sciences because the ideas of physics underlie the other basic sciences as well as engineering and modern technology. The world of physics ranges from the smallest particles of subatomic matter to the galaxies. Physicists conduct research into the fundamental laws of nature or use existing knowledge about the physical world to develop applications and to design new products. A degree in physics prepares the student for a career in physics or related job in industry, a governmental lab, teaching, as well as for further graduate study.

The Department of Physics offers a complete postgraduate curriculum in physics (M.Sc Physics). M.Sc Physics course was started in 2014-15 & students have secured top university positions since its inception. Well-equipped laboratories and computer facilities are available. The faculty consists of physicists, dedicated to quality education and to the advancement of knowledge in physics.

Vision:

To build foundation for excellence and spur development of the Institution as a premier Institution by igniting and nurturing enthusiasm and passion, in the study of physics.

Mission

  • To provide high quality physics education and equipping students for carrying out independent research.
  • To awaken the young minds and discover their talents both in theory and in practical Physics, through dedication to teaching, commitment to students and innovative instructional methods like LCD presentation, OHP/LCDs etc.
  • To provide students with state of the art knowledge in Physics to equip students to compete globally.
  • To create such infrastructure in the department for meeting the above mission.
  • To develop among students, sensitivity to contribute to the betterment of society through knowledge in Physics.

Career opportunities:

Employment opportunities in physics are varied and abundant, from industrial research and development to teaching. Physicists are employed in all sectors of society, including corporations, government research agencies and universities. Physicists are presently enjoying unusual opportunities in the development of new concepts that are expected to have far-reaching consequences in the high technology of the future. Totally new applications are arising from understanding basic physics principles. Some of these emerging technologies include Nuclear science and technology, laser communications, holography, synchrotron radiation light sources, opto-electronics, high temperature superconductors and physic applications in medicine. At a time when technological developments and discoveries are creating a heavy demand for physicists, projections indicate the possibility of a critical shortage of trained physicists.
