The Department of Physics and Electronics was established at the inception of the college in 1993 with three U.G courses (M.P.C., M.P.E., & M.P.Cs.,) and with an intake of 65 students and 3 faculty members. Currently the department has 2 sections of MECs and 2 sections of MPCs with strength of about 450 students and 7 experienced faculty members.
The Department has well furnished, spacious and well equipped laboratories. The laboratories have been relocated to the new I.T. block on November 14th , 2005. The Department has three Physics laboratories (Mechanics Lab, Optics Lab & Electronics Lab) spanning a total area of 2024 Sqft. and the area of Electronics lab is 1056 Sqft. The electronics lab is also equipped with 9 Pentium/Dual Core computers for the simulation experiments prescribed by the O.U.
