Department Information

Physics was started as a subsidary subject (upto second year) at B.Sc.(Computer Science) in the year 2005 on no-grant basis. Later, with the inception of B.Sc. (Basic Sciences) on grant-in-aid basis, the college started offering Physics as a major subject for the Bachelor of Science degree.

The department is actively engaged in research and development activities. Faculty members have expertise in varied areas such as Supercapacitors, Pervoskites and Energy Auditing as well as Free & Open Source Software for science education, Management of Institutional Repository, Website Development and Management, etc.

The department actively promotes use of ICT in education and incorporates blended learning using the NPTEL lectures for better understanding.
