Applied Sciences (Physics)

About Department

The Department is established in 1984 and engaged in teaching theory and laboratory courses in Engineering Physics to Semester I and Semester II students and presently educating 1200 plus B.Tech. students every year. In autonomy the department offers free electives (Electronic Materials and Applications, Laser Technology and Applications) to students of Semester V and VI. It prepares and maintains teaching material for all these courses in the form of hard and soft copies. The material comprises of lecture notes, supplementary study material, interactive documents and useful study links.
Department currently has eight faculty members and four Supporting staff. All faculty members are Ph.D. with area of research Ferroelectrics, Material Science and Polymers.
The faculty members have published about 70 research papers in International and National Journals, two textbooks and a large number of Conference papers as well as Copyrights, monographs and book chapters to their credit.
Department has got two well equipped laboratories with two dark rooms for optical experiments. A Laser room for demonstration experiment on Laser. Investment in these Laboratories till date is around Rs. 33.5 Lakhs. These laboratories provide a comprehensive practical exposure to the students through performance and data analysis.


To be a well-recognized center with strong foundational focus on basic sciences and humanities to develop budding professionals.


To develop scientific temperament and mathematical aptitude for solving inter-disciplinary engineering problems with excellent communication skills and social values in a vibrant environment.


The grading in each course is relative. The performance of each student is graded relative to performance of all other students in the class by award of a grade. The most important thing to understand about the grading system is that absolute marks do not matter as much as they used to in the old absolute grading system. As long as your performance group does not change, a difference of a few marks is immaterial. Students are encouraged to enhance their performance relative to the average class performance, and not to aim at very high marks at the cost of developing good understanding of the subject. This has the desirable effect of lifting the average performance of any class and of discouraging a rat race for marks.

Outcome based education system

The Washington Accord covers UG engineering degrees under Outcome based approach. To have a measure of this Outcome based education the apex body for engineering education in India, AICTE, has floated 12 Programme Outcomes (POs) and it is expected that the course outcome (called as COs) for every programme must be designed to meet these outcomes. Our Department has designed following COs to meet the POs.
