is both significant and influential, in part because advances in its
understanding have often translated into new technologies, but also
because new ideas in physics often resonate with the other sciences,
mathematics and philosophy. The department of Engineering Physics,
with its vision ‘To integrate Physics with cutting edge
technology’ aims at providing a strong basement in
scientific methods and first hand knowledge of applied physics.
of Physics has highly qualified and dedicated staff, involved
actively in research also. It is headed by Dr. C. Pandurangappa, who
has more than eleven years of teaching experience. He obtained his
in Physics by the Bangalore University for his research work on “Color centers and Thermoluminescence studies in Magnesium,
Strontium and Lanthanides doped Calcium fluoride” in
April 2010 and published two papers in international journals
and presented two papers in national conferences in the academic
year 2009-2010. Other faculties of the
department include Mrs. Daly paul, Dr. Deepa Urs M.V and and Ms.
Smitha M.G. The faculty have the following credentials for the academic year 2009-2010.
Mrs. Daly paul obtained
M.Phil degree recently and attended a workshop. Dr. Deepa Urs M.V.
published 4 papers in international journals. Ms. Smitha M.G. is
pursuing her Ph.D. and has published one paper in international
journal. She has attended a national conference and a workshop.
The department has well
equipped laboratory with sophisticated instruments. The practical
classes are assisted by the well experienced lab instructor Mrs.
Bhagyalakshmi. With all these strengths, the department has achieved
100% results in the past years. The department also encourages
students updating their knowledge by involving them in seminars,
invited talks and such activities
The Department of Physics conducted a National Conference on Phosphors and their Applications (NCPA 2010) during November 15-16, 2010. The conference had 111 participants from various parts of the country and 65 papers were presented in the conference. In the year 2011 the department conducted two events-
1. Intercollegiate Physics Fest PHOTON 2011 on May 5th 2011 and2. National Seminar on Nuclear Technology for the Growth of the Nation on August 22, 2011.
The department is recognized as Research and Development Center by Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum.
