About Department

Department of Physics was started with a UG course in 1964 in the same year of the establishment of the College.  Right from its beginning, the department had a team of dedicated teachers, with a great vision of empowering women by equipping them with scientific knowledge and enhanced self confidence to face the challenges of the modern world. The Department of Physics evolved into a Post-Graduate department in 1999. Eight dedicated teachers and four sincere non teaching staff are at present serving the department. The department has well equipped UG and PG laboratories, library and internet facility.

The Department provides effective teaching through lecture method, ICT, discussions, audio visual aids, peer teaching assignments, and seminar presentations for a smooth learning process. The faculty regularly engage in research activities and attend workshops and seminars at regional and national level as part of faculty development.

Equipped with a DST-FIST lab, the department is able to carry out research oriented UG and PG projects and other research activities to instigate scientific aptitude and research culture among the student community.  Minor projects and Science popularization programs such as World Space Week have always added momentum and vigour towards the progress of the department.

Every year the annual department journal “Physika” is being released in order to promote research culture. The magazine gives a platform to publish original research work of students and teachers of the department. This also encourages both teachers and students to perform well in research activities, thereby update themselves with the recent trends in various frontiers of physics.

The department caters to the academic needs of hundreds of physics aspiring young minds. The Department ensures maximum participation of students in curricular, co-curricular and extra–curricular activities. Over the years, the students of Physics are being offered quality education with special care extended to the academically weak and socio-economically backward sections of the society. Many a time the department has been honoured with university ranks.


Betterment of society through women empowerment by imparting scientific knowledge, self confidence and a sense of social commitment.

The aim of the post graduate department is to guide our students in procuring a deep knowledge in the field and to enable, empower and inspire them in fulfilling their aspirations to the best of their ability.


  • To achieve academic excellence.
  • To develop research aptitude among students.
  • To impart a sense of social commitment.
  • To improve career prospects.
  • To enhance self confidence and emotional stability of the students to cop up with the highly competitive world.

Research Centre

The department is actively involved in experimental research in the field of Semiconductor Physics and Photovoltaics. Many research projects funded by agencies like UGC, BRNS-DAE, KSCSTE, etc has been taken up by the department. A laboratory has been set up for research purpose with the financial support of DST-FIST and is in the process of accreditation as Research Centre. The infrastructure facilities of the lab include
