Physics

About the Department

Only education can help the young rural generation to become the responsible citizens of this nation. It empowers individuals with awareness about the society, technology and their applications. Hence the department of Physics was established in the year 1972 with the aim of spreading science education with physics as one of the main subjects at undergraduate level. Since its inception, continuous efforts have been made to provide quality education to rural students.

The department has dedicated faculty members. The faculty members of the department strive on honing up experimental skills of students by encouraging them to apply the relevant theoretical knowledge taught in class in order to gain more practical experience. The department provides the conducive environment for the students to think creatively and forge their paths in scientific community. The department has implemented CBCS scheme as per Mysore University regulations. The department has conducted state-level seminar on renewable energy and special lecture programmes by eminent speakers on topics of general interests and subject for the benefit of the students and faculty members. Science students of our college have been placed in various sectors.

In order to promote and to encourage the students to excel in their studies, various cash prizes have been instituted. Cash prizes will be given to the students who excel in their examinations every year on the occasion of the Founders’- Day.

Department initiated coaching program for the aspired BSc students to guide them for common entrance test for PG studies in Physics with the help of an alumnus of the department.
