About Department

The Department of Physics was established in the year 1981 by introducing the course M.Phil. (Physics), a pre-Ph.D. two semesters course for providing training in research methodology for postgraduate student in Physics. About ten to twenty percent of the candidates who have successfully completed their M.Phil. Courses are registered for Ph.D. degree in Physics in the Department. About fifty candidates have so far obtained their Ph.D. degree in Physics from the Department in different thrust areas. More than two hundred research papers have been published by the teachers and research scholars of the Department in reputed international journals during last twenty years. The Department is also running a four semester course at M.Sc. level which was introduced in 1989-90. The purpose of this course has been to provide training to students in job-oriented areas of Physics, Electronics and Computers. After successful completion of M.Sc. course, the candidates have a wide scope for job opportunities in various government and private sector organizations. The syllabus for M.Sc. course has been designed so as to be consistent with that prescribed for UGC-CSIR National Eligibility Test(NET).
