The department of Physics has been 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 Physics laboratory is located at the ground floor of the main building of the college. 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 the class lectures and laboratory sessions, this department regularly arranges tutorials and special contact hours. The department arranges unit tests on regular basis to assess the progress of the students.
