Department of Physics

Salient Features

The Department of Physics from its modest beginning in 2013 has now grown into an active center of quality teaching and research. The department, under the leadership of our President Prof. (Dr.) Y. K. Vijay, have organized various national & international level conferences. The department has also set up a Innovation Lab which is aimed at driving students towards innovation rather than imparting just theoretical knowledge.

  • Well qualified and experienced faculty headed by Prof. Y.K. Vijay, Eminent Scientist, Physics.
  • Material Research Lab, Microwave Research Lab, Molecular Dynamics Research Lab, CNT’s synthesis Lab along with well equipped regular course labs.
  • Innovation hub- shaping young minds.
  • Professors from Stanford University, Keil University, IIT Kanpur, IIT Roorkee and CSIR on advisory board.
  • MOU with CEERI, Pilani for science projects

The infrastructure of Department is the best in its class. The Department consists of good number of lecture rooms, Seminar Halls, Tutorial Rooms and Following Labs:

  • Engineering Physics Lab (B.Tech.)
  • Applied Physics Lab (Diploma)
  • B.Sc. Labs (1st, 3rd and 5th Semester)
  • M.Sc. 1st Sem Physics Labs ( General and Advance Physics)
