The Department of Physics is actively involved in the research in the emerging areas of science and technology. Since its inception the department of physics has provided both basic and engineering-oriented physics theory and practical courses for the B. Tech 1st year students. Presently, M.Sc. and Ph.D. programme are also going on in the department. Broad areas of expertise available in the department are Solid State Gas Sensors, Carrier Transport in Thin Films, Ferroelectrics and related materials, Multiferroics, Solar Energy Materials, Liquid Crystals, Semiconductor Nanostructure and Devices, Polymer Nanocomposites, Solar Photocatalysis, Solar Energy Materials, Energy storage devices and materials, Nanoionics based resistive switching devices, Theoretical Physics, Theoretical Nuclear and Particle Physics etc..
Our vision is to be a model of excellence in multidisciplinary branches of science and research by producing world class graduates prepared for lifelong engagements in the rapidly changing field of science and related field.
Our mission is to impart quality education to students and provide a comprehensive understanding of Physics, built upon basic fundamental of science and technology and to provide quality manpower to meet the future challenges.

Our department is currently engaged in cutting-edge research funded by AICTE. Following are the list of ongoing/completed sponsored research project:
Along with these the M. Sc. Students pursue their final semester project under the supervision of the departmental faculties. If needed, they can work in collaboration with different research institutes and universities also. For such a case, a research fund of up to Rs. 1 lakh can be sanctioned to master degree students for research project under Research Promotion Scheme (RPC).
The department offers two year Master of Science in Applied physics and Ph.D. programme in different fields of physics. Apart from these the department is offering engineering physics course to B. Tech 1st year students of the institute.
The faculty members of the department are engaged in research in the different areas of physics – both theoretical as well as experimental. The research work is funded partly by the institutional grant and mostly by the different funding agencies like AICTE, NRB etc..
