Department of Physics


The department of Physics has been established in 1962. It offers Physics up to second year of B.Sc. The department comprises of three qualified Professors. Unfortunately, we have lost our third faculty member Dr. Avinash H. Karande (Assistant Professor) in a road mishap in June 2016. Rest of the faculty members are highly qualified, engaged in teaching and research activities. We all three members have published good number of research papers in journals of National and International repute. Our three non-teaching staff members are cooperative, helpful and having good rapport with students.


To create an atmosphere that is conducive to student’s over-all development.

To focus primarily on developing a scientific aptitude towards applied Physics.

To inculcate scientific approach in students to discover their unlimited potential in research areas.
