About the Department
The Physics Department is as old as the Institute- started its Journey in the millennium year 2000. Initially, it started with a single laboratory in the ground floor with all the enthusiasm and zeal of the then faculty members. In 2001, the scenario was completely changed when courses under West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT) started functioning. A bunch of new teachers began their journey in the making of a well equipped and efficient center of teaching and learning. Presently, the Department is situated in the western side of the 1st floor of the main college building and cater services to all the B. Tech streams in the 1st year [paper: Physics-I ] and 2nd year [paper: Physics-II) of their B. Tech. courses. There three laboratories namely 'General Physics laboratory', 'Modern Physics Laboratory' and 'Modern Optics and Computational Physics lab' are dedicated for B.Tech students. Teachers of this Department has always been enthusiastic in carrying out active research work. Present faculty members has published nearly 50 research papers in the Journal of International repute with very high impact factor. The year 2012 has been noted as the landmark for the Department, as in this very year the Department in association with Department of Chemistry started M.Tech course in Nanoscience & Technology. The state of the art Nano-Laboratories are being developed to cater the PG students of Nanoscience & Technology. Now the Institute is autonomous, hence in near future the Department wishes to introduce Integrated programs like M.Sc. course in Physical Science and Medical Physics.
