The Department of Physics was established in the year 1986. The basic aim of the Department is to impart education to the budding engineers, in pursuit of academic excellence and better understanding of the concepts of Physics, both in theory and practical at UG level, which enable them to apply these concepts to tomorrow’s technological advancement. The department offers two courses namely Engineering Physics theory and Engineering Physics Laboratory for all the first year undergraduate students. The department has well qualified faculty members involving themselves in the welfare of the first year students. They have a very good teacher- student interaction which ensures good academic performance of the students in the first year. The department has maintained good academic results in every semester (near to 100%).
The faculty members of the department are involved in research in the active areas of Physics. The department has two well equipped laboratories to offer practical training as per the academic requirements of VTU. The department is recognized as an R& D center under VTU Belagavi.
- To become a centre of excellence through quality education and research.
- To provide high quality technical education through effective curriculum and innovative teaching.
- To stimulate in students a spirit of inquiry and desire to gain knowledge and skills to meet the changing needs that can enrich their lives.
- To provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for students and faculties to investigate, apply and transfer their knowledge.
