The major commitment of the Department of Physics is to provide up to date physics knowledge to undergraduate and graduate students through course work, practical classes and research projects.
The department has facilities to offer B.Sc. General (three-year course) and B.Sc. Special (four-year course) degrees for undergraduates, and research based M.Phil. and Ph. D. Degrees for graduate students. At present Physics is offered as a subject to students in the Biology stream as well.
