About the Department

The Department of Physics is established with a vision to provide world class Physics education to the undergraduate and postgraduate students, to meet requirements of civilised manpower in physics for teaching, research and other vocations. Currently, the department offers two year M.Sc. & three year B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Physics. The Department of Physics also offers Ph.D. programme in various research areas of experimental and Theoretical Physics. Department has highly competent and dedicated faculty members with diversity of research interests. Our research spans over theoretical and experimental Condensed Matter Physics, Radiation Physics, High Energy Physics and theoretical Nuclear Structure Physics. The faculty of Physics has various national and international research collaborations. In addition to teaching through modern proficiencies, the seminars, workshops and invited lectures are also integral part of the academics.
