Department of 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.

The Department of Physics has well equipped laboratory for the students to conduct practicals as per VTU. The faculty consists of physicists, dedicated to quality undergraduate education and to the advancement of knowledge in physics. The Physics department has well qualified and dedicated faculty members and technical staff. The Department has been maintaining excellent results both in theory and practical examinations from the beginning of the establishment of the college. The staff members play the multifaceted role of a teacher, mentor and a friend. They involve themselves in the welfare of the students. A very good teacher – student interaction resulted in good academic performance of the students. The Physics department has very good infrastructure with a working area of 2000 sq ft consisting of a laboratory, dark room and store room. A large number of students make use of the departmental library.
