Physics involves the study of all forces and interactions, both visible and invisible, which guide and control the functioning of entire Universe. The subject Physics has a tremendous applied face and orientation and therefore its study promotes great intellectual stimulation.


The Department of Physics was established in the year 1972, with Prof. P.D. Pethkar as its first Head. With the natural growth classes of B.Sc. I, II & III came into being.
