It gives me enormous gratification to present Department of Physics. Physics is essentially an intuitive and concrete science. The study of physics is an adventure; we will find it challenging, sometimes frustrating, occasionally painful, and often richly rewarding. The laws of Physics and discoveries of Physics helps to develop practical devices like automobiles, computers, electricity generators, electronics devices, nuclear reactors, bridges, tunnels and space shuttles. Hence Physics is basis for all technological developments. None of the fronts, social, human, environmental or economic can be thought of as far as development is concerned without Physics.

The Department runs a PhD program in the highly demanded areas of Ferrites, Garnets, Meta-materials, Spintronics materials, Multiferroics and CMR nano materials. The Department also runs a course on Engineering Physics which is a part of B.Tech Programme in all branches at the first year level. The Department has set up Nano-Science Laboratory and Computer controlled 3D Physics SCADA software Lab for research purpose.
