ICETEST 2020- International Conference on Emerging Trends in Engineering Science and Technology - 10th to 12th December 2020

Non-Engineering Departments

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS

Located in the western wing of the main block of the College, Department of Physics has a rare distinction of being one of the oldest departments of the college.

Physics, the fundamental building block of all disciplines of Engineering has a pivotal role in the development of engineering solutions to contemporary problems in the physical sciences by applying fundamental principles. It is not confined to a particular discipline of Engineering but a thread weaved through the whole technological domain. Engineering Physics provide a thorough grounding in the realm of Modern Optics, Quantum Physics, Superconductivity, Acoustics, Crystallography, Semiconductor physics and Nanotechnology.

The experimental methods followed in the Physics lab opens up a new arena for the budding Engineers to start and proceed with manual measurement practices that naturally enhance their dexterity which is an essential skill requirement for their advanced technical procedures.
