Tech 1st year students and Applied Physics I, Applied Physics I Lab, Applied Physics II, Applied Physics II Lab for Diploma 1st year students. The Department is equipped with highly compelling B. Tech. and Diploma Physics laboratories. The Department, at present, has one faculty, one technical assistant and one multi-tasking staff. Currently, the Department is actively involved in teaching and research in various areas like Condensed Matter Physics, and Nuclear Physics. Faculty serving here has international publications and are engaged in collaborative work with various universities/institutes. Always innovative but earnestly student-friendly, the staff of the Department have always been trying to keep the matter of teaching and research at par with the current national and international standards.


  • To develop a strong scientific foundation in theoretical and experimental aspects through fundamental principles of physics, enabling them to apply the knowledge across various engineering disciplines.
  • To provide most current and relevant education to the students by offering innovative and purposeful lectures, along with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.
  • To train the students to apply basic principles of Physics in real world situations.
  • To foster a dedication to engaging in research within the realm of applied physics, promoting a sustained commitment to advancing knowledge and innovation in this specific scientific domain.


To provide young talents with a foundation in the essential principles of Physics on which engineering is based, and to develop a leading teaching Department in Physics by encouraging a commitment to conducting research in the field of Applied Physics.
