Physics and Materials Science

Vision

The department ideates:

 “Student centered learning and student-faculty research by using a mixture of traditional, current and integrative pedagogical techniques dictated by state of the art education &research in order to create a nationally & internationally recognized unique model for physics and materials science education in both public and professional spheres”

 Specifically 

  • To provide end-oriented education & striving for excellence in performance-based teaching and research in order to maintain high levels of professionalism and integrity.
  • To be internationally and nationally recognized for teaching and research.
  • To be recognized and appreciated for different courses in order to contribute in shaping
  • Successful engineering graduates.
  • Implementing fundamental physics & applications to integrate the research and innovative teaching for motivating students to be better intellectuals.

Mission

  •  To provide qualitative education and preparing students for challenges in industry, government and academia.
  •  To provide a panorama of courses coupled with teaching, research, and mentoring opportunities for graduate students.
  • To provide courses that enhances their skills and their appreciation for science.
  •  The department is dedicated to teaching and learning physics in a collaborative and performance based active environment.

Department offers Undergraduate and Graduate courses

Beside offering a number of courses for Undergraduate Engineering programmes, the Department of Physics & Materials Science offers Masters and Doctorate programmes in Physics and Materials Science. The Department also offers elective courses like Nanotechnology, Optoelectronic devices Optical Fiber Network Design etc. to undergraduate final year students in Electronics and Communication, Computer Science/IT, Civil and Biotechnology/Bioinformatics.

Program Objectives

  • Insight into physical processes.
  • To use the knowledge of physics as a useful tool in their disciplines.
  • Gain the ability to think critically.
  • Qualitatively & quantitatively analyze and solve problems.

Research

The Department has strong research interests in microwaves, compound semiconductors, and nano-materials. The Department has recently established a laboratory for the fabrication of thin film devices and nano-materials. A microwave antenna laboratory has also been set up. Research is carried out with a number of doctoral students in the fields of nano-materials and semiconductor devices as well as micro strip antenna design.
