Department of Physics at the School of Science is one of the five Departments under the science offering both fundamental and applied programs. Our focus has been on both technical and professional level courses with proven quality through a consistent track record of graduate job placement as well as admission into postgraduate studies abroad. We had introduced graduate level programs in Physics with M. Phil in 1997 and Ph. D. in 2006, and undergraduate level program in B. Sc. in Applied Physics in 2009.
As we have good numbers of students who have completed undergraduate level programs in Physics and seeking higher level education in the country, Department of Physics introduced M. Sc. program in Physics effective from March 2019. This program is designed to give students an up-to-date knowledge of recent trends in Physics. The curriculum has been designed so as to impart skills to the students in the domains of theoretical, experimental and applied physics. The main objective of the program is to produce human resource with skills in teaching and potential in research. The department maintains close association with other departments under School of Science and School of Engineering providing excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary study and research.
The department has now ten well qualified faculty members who have been trained in teaching as well as research. Among them four members have Ph. D.'s and two with M. Phil.'s (Ph. D.'s in progress) with their specialization in different areas of Physics. Our laboratories offer facilities for general, advanced and specialized experiments in Physics. The general laboratory is designed for undergraduate students of Applied Science and engineering programs and the advanced laboratory is designed for students of Applied Physics. The specialized laboratory was established in 2005 which consists of research facilities in low temperatire non-thermal plasma.
Objectives of the Department:
- Production of qualified academic resource persons with strong background in Physics and Mathematics required for pursuing higher studies.
- Promotion of research and development activities by interdepartmental collaboration at colleges and universities.
- Establishment of collaborative relationship with national and foreign institutions of similar functions for mutual benefit by the exchange of students and sharing of knowledge and technology for the benefits of human kind.
- Production of globally acceptable competent graduates.
