“The Department of Physics has been recognized as a Research Centre of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgaum in the year 2012.”
The Department of Physics was established in the year 2008. The department has four faculty members with doctoral degree. The department is involved in teaching the Engineering Physics Theory and Laboratory courses to the students of different Engineering disciplines. Our mission is to feed the budding engineers with finer aspects of science, which make them to understand, exploit and innovate, thus contributing to the technological advancement of tomorrow. The department is also instrumental in taking up many curricular and co-curricular activities of the college.
The Department of Physics has been recognized as a Research Centre of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgaum in the year 2012. Research programs of the Department cover a number of trust areas such as Nonlinear Optics, X – Ray Crystallography, Crystal Growth, Density Functional Theory (DFT), Nanotechnology, Thin / Thick Films Synthesis and Characterizations, Vibrational spectroscopy and Fluorescence spectroscopy.
To make the students understand the basic concepts of Physics and to empower them to apply the concepts effectively in the field of Engineering and Technology.
- To encourage the inquisitiveness in a student and make him to understand the fundamentals of technology.
- To inform the student with the latest development in science so that can exploit it for development of technology.
- To imbibe in the student the idea that understanding of an atom is very essential to understand the universe.
- To instigate the “researcher” in a student so that he could be an innovator or inventor of tomorrow.
