Department History

The department of Physics was established in 1963 being one of the first to be functional in the new university. The first batch of postgraduate of students passed out in 1965. The aim of the department throughout its existence for more than four decades has been to provide up to date instruction to our students to meet the requirement of trained manpower in physics for teaching, research, engineering and other vocations. It has established itself as a center of excellence with well-qualified faculty and modern teaching, computer and research laboratories. All teachers in the department have doctorate degree and many of them have been trained abroad. The department also has well-established programs for research leading to M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees in specialisation Radiation Physics, Theoretical Physics, Optical Physics, Material Science, Astrophysics, etc. It has been recognized as a department for special assistance (DRS and DSA-I, DSA-II and now under DSA-III) since 1986 by the UGC under its special assistance programme SAP and under COSIST program of UGC for strengthening of infrastructure. Radiation Physics and Theoretical Physics form major thrust areas of research in the department, and grants have also been received by individual members for several research projects from different funding agencies such as DST, CSIR, NSC, state Govt.
