Department of Physics

The Physics Department is one of the oldest departments in the university. In the beginning it was started to cater to the needs of undergraduate teaching in various disciplines including those of Technology and Agriculture. M.Sc. (Physics) programme with specialization in Agricultural Meteorology, Biophysics and Instrumentation was started in 1973. A new field of specialization of Digital Electronics was also later added in the M.Sc. (Physics) programme. Ph.D. in Physics programme was started in 1983 by the department. The admissions to these programme are made through an entrance examination conducted by the university in the month of May. The department has facilities for research both in theoretical and experimental physics.
Salient Accomplishments During the last 20 years or so, the department has considerably improved the infrastructure by way of equipments, modernization and availability of financial resources from various funding agencies. Our graduates (Ph.D’s) are well placed in reputed institutes
