Objectives of our department are :-

  •  To understand the role of science in society and to evaluate the historical development of physics in the ongoing quest to discover the structure of the universe.
  •  To gain an understanding of basic principles and the experimental basis of the various fields of physics and the logical relationships of the various fields.
  •  To help the students to use mathematical skills conceptual and mathematical models in order to analyze the order of magnitude estimates and an understanding of limiting cases.
  • Develop competence in designing, constructing and using laboratory instruments and to draw valid conclusions from experimental data.
  • To arrange lectures/ seminars related to Science and Technology
  •    To get consistently excellent results in both theory and Practical.

Vision  
To create a centre of excellence in engineering Physics providing quality technical education, fostering innovation and creativity in the areas of pure and applied sciences.
Mission 
Promoting excellence in technical education and scientific research through the effective use of physics in real-time engineering problems through a synergistic combination of teaching and research encouraging observation and analysis of the natural world.
