HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT


      The PG & Research Department of Physics is on the verge of passing the“GOLDEN JUBILEE”milestone in its service. The Department of Physics was founded in 1971, under the stewardship of Rev. Sr. Prisca. Ever since its inception, the department has shown continual growth both in academic and extracurricular activities. Rev. Sr. Judith and Rev. Sr. Prisca guided the destinies of the department in the crucial periods of its infancy and adolescence. At present, the Department has vibrant faculty members and has also undertaken several projects under various national funding agencies such as UGC, DST, DBT, and SERB. Seminars, workshops and conferences are regular features of the department to create awareness on current topics of global importance. To promote alternative education by creating a joyous experience of unfolding the innate potentials of the students, the Department of Physics has taken a new dimension of entering into“SCHOOL OF PHYSICAL SCIENCES”during the academic year 2020-2021.
