Department of Physics

 

The Department of Physics, established in 1950, has been flourishing till date under the dedicated teamwork of the teachers. The Physics Main degree programme started in 1998. Since then, we have been able to contribute a notable number of well qualified graduates to the science community. We are proud to mention that the very second batch produced the first and the second ranks in the examinations of the University of Kerala. From each of the subsequent batches our students have been securing places among the top five ranks in the university. In extra curricular activities also, our students have proved their mettle by participating and winning in various events of the University Youth Festivals and also national level athletic meets. Twice from our department students won the ‘Star of India’ title in ball badminton. We look forward to bringing to the limelight students with rare talents in academic as well as non-academic fields.
