Physics

 

 

Introduction:
PHYSICS department of this college was a part and parcel of this institution right from the beginning. Generations of students got their first exposure of a laboratory, dedicated for exploring and verifying the principles of physical laws, from this department. The main laboratory is located at the ground floor of the main building of the college, though its electronics section is located at the first floor of the same building. The department initially was running an UG general course in Physics along with a +2 level course for years. But from 1996-97 it introduced the honours course as well. The HS level course was discontinued from the year 2000 onward. Though the students of this department came mainly from suburbs and rural areas in general with a lot of social disadvantages, the success rate of this department is almost 100% in the past decade. Almost at every year one or two students found themselves placed among the best lot within the University. Apart from class lectures and laboratory sessions, this department arranges regular tutorials and special contact hours even after the selection test examinations. Another recent feature added in the curriculum of this department is the introduction of monthly unit tests throughout the year to assess the progress of the students.

 

  • Apart from the regular classes the department organizes in-house seminars. The department encourage students to participate in the Students’ Seminars to enhance their communication skill. This year students’ seminar was held on 12th, 16th, and 19th September, 2015 which had been arranged for the 1st year students of this department.
