About the Department

The Department of Physics was established in the year 2002. The Department has well experienced teaching and technical staff. Currently, the department consists of six doctorate holders and the other faculty members have registered for their Ph.D program. The Department has been recognized by VTU as a Research Centre since 2014-15.

The department caters to the needs of all the branches as it is a basic science department. The Engineering Physics Lab is well furnished with latest equipments and all necessary amenities. A lab for the purpose of research has been set up to enable faculty members to pursue experimental research in the field of nanotechnology both for synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials. The Department of Physics also has adequate infrastructure facilities to train the students and to carry out experiments. Results of the department have been consistently good and maintained consistency.

Department of Physics – R&D Center

The Centre for Advanced Materials Research (CAMR) lab is equipped with DST-SERB, VGST Sponsored Confocal Raman Microscope, FT-IR Spectrometer, UV-Visible Spectrometer for Material/Nano material Characterization along with basic synthesis facilities. These Spectroscopy facilities are open for characterization of samples from internal (BMSIT&M)/External institutions/Industry.
