Welcome to Department of Physics

About us

Started in the year 1993-94, department of Physics is one of the oldest departments in this college. Currently it has 210 students pursuing B.Sc with (MPC & MPC’s) and 30 students pursuing M.Sc Physics with Electronics and Instrumentation as specialization. All the faculty members are actively involved in teaching, research, college activities as well as outreach programs. In our department, teaching is not a profession but a passion. It has a track record of securing four gold medals and several university ranks. Conducting workshops, guest lectures and field trips to various laboratories is a regular feature of our department.

Milestones

Over the years, Department of Physics has bagged 4 Gold medals and several university ranks.

Our Club - Galaxy

Through the departmental club “GALAXY” which is an association of physics students and faculty, students carry out projects, construct working models on various electronics and physics applications and participate in Intra College and inter college competitions. Department of Physics encourages students to excel in Physics by rewarding outstanding performers on Galaxy day. Extension lectures by eminent professors and scientists keeps the students abreast of latest technological advances in the fields of science

Learning resources

  • Library : Departmental library is stacked with nearly 100 titles pertaining to academic and general Physics. Syllabus followed is as prescribed by the Osmania University. Library is updated periodically adding additional titles and no.of volumes.
  • Department of physics is proud to possess latest equipment like GM counter, dual trace oscilloscopes, Interferometer and several spectrometers with high accuracy. Laboratory equipment is renewed as per the requirement.

Seminars/ conferences/ workshops/Guest Lectures organized:

  • One-day workshop on Virtual Labs sponsored by IAPT, Telangana RC 22 was organised on 30th June 2016. Prof. Naidu showed the students how an experiment can be done using simulations.
  • The dept conducted energy conservation campaign in July-August 2016 to promote consciousness on power saving and create awareness on renewable sources of energy, sponsored by thrive solar energy Pvt. Ltd. The dept motivated the students and the general public to save 2748 units of power in a month.
  • The Physics and Comp. Science departmentsts collaborated with earth sense recycle pvt. Ltd. and organised an awareness campaign on hazards of e-waste in the campus and neighbourhood from 20th Oct 2016 to 22nd Nov 2016.
  • Field Trips

    The faculty instills a quest for knowledge and general awareness among the students by accompanying them on field visits to IKP Knowledge park, DAE(Department of Atomic Energy), NGRI (National Geographical Research Institution) etc., Such field trips do offer a platform to inspire the students to gain wider knowledge than from the textbooks.

    Certificate courses/ Value Added Courses/ Skill oriented course:

    The Department organized Skill Oriented programme on Optical instruments and their caliberation on 7th Nov 2016.

    Examination/ Evaluation Reforms Initiated:

  • Open Book System
  • Students’ seminars
  • Evaluating students in Experimental techniques
  • Group discussions and online assignments.
  • Highlights

    • Modern teaching methods

      The faculty members adopt modern teaching methods apart from lecture method. Department has OHP and LCD. The faculty members use ICT aids for effective teaching. Seminars, assignments and group discussions are general ways of involving students in the teaching learning process. Students are encouraged to prepare presentations on latest technological developments.

    • Evaluation Process

      Periodic tests and terminal examinations are held regularly by the department. Students are also assessed through class seminars and oral presentations.

    • Seminars/workshops/events

      Conducting seminars , lecture series and field trips to renowned national laboratories is a regular feature in this department. During these seminars directors of various research labs and leading scientists interact with students and enhance their awareness on research options in Physics

    • Research activities

      Faculty members have several publications in national and inter national journals to their credit

    • Departmental Notice board

      Latest advances in research in fields of lasers, nano technology, nuclear science are displayed in the notice board. Employment oppurtunities and various university notifications on higher education are also displayed in this notice board.

    • Consultancy services

      Our faculty members act as resource persons and deliver guest lectures in post graduate as well as engineering colleges. All the faculty members act as examiners in university examinations. Through all these activities the department motivates it’s students to strive for excellence in higher education. Reasonable number of students pursue higher education in preference to employment.
