Department of Physics exists since the inception of Institute in 2007. The department has been offering undergraduate Physics courses to students of BE from 2007 onwards. The department has highly active and vibrant faculty members committed to impart high quality standards in pure and applied areas of physics and also trains students, so that they become competent and motivated physicists.

Strength of the Department
Faculties of the department are well qualified and also have excellent experience in the field of teaching. The department has state-of-the-art laboratories and computational facilities to offer good practical training as per the academic requirements of VTU.. Department is involved in the research area of condensed matter physics and nuclear physics.

Research activities:
The faculties in the department are energetically involved in Research and Development. The areas of research are condensed matter physics (Experimental), Nanostructured Materials, Nuclear Physics etc.
Dr. Vijaylakshmi Dayal is currently guiding 4 students for Ph.D. No of Ph. D awarded: one.

Along with Institute have world class infrastructure and so has taken initiative in setting up different laboratory for different subject. The physics laboratory is quite spacious, well equipped and provides excellent academic ambience for work. The Department also has required system and application software's to cater the needs of conduction of laboratories and projects.
