Department of Physics

Established in 1966

The department is one of the earliest departments established by the institution way back in 1966 offering the subject as an optional subject in BSc. It has been recognized under star college  scheme of DBT Govt of India and also as the Center for Innovative Teaching by DST, Govt. of Karnataka. Having spacious laboratory well equipped with quality instruments, the department is empowering students through effective teaching learning process imparting quality education which focuses on top class quality jobs.
