The Department of Physics was established in the year 2002, currently headed by Dr. N.D. Narasimha Prasad. The Department has well experienced teaching and technical staff. Currently, the department consists of three doctorate holders and the other faculty members have registered for Ph.D at reputed universities. The Department has been recognized by VTU as a Research Centre in the year 2014-15.
The department caters to the needs of all the branches as it is a basic science department. The Engineering Physics Lab is well furnished with latest equipments and all necessary amenities. A lab for the purpose of research has been set up to enable faculty members to pursue experimental research in the field of nanotechnology, crystal growth and nonlinear optics. The Department of Physics also has adequate infrastructure facilities to train the students and to carry out experiments. Results of the department have been consistently good and maintained consistency.


To impart sound fundamentals and concepts in Physics which helps students to nurture scientific temperament and creativity in the field of engineering.


To provide sound knowledge in applied Physics through innovative techniques and scientific methodology. To motivate students to pursue scientific analysis and develop problem solving ability in the field of engineering.

Program Educational Objectives

  1. To create interest in fundamentals of pure sciences this is the foundation for all engineering branches.
  2. To give a sound knowledge of principles of physics.
  3. To inspire students to probe into the secrets of the physical world.

Program Outcomes

  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of Mathematics, Science, Engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, Natural sciences and engineering sciences
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the Information to provide valid conclusions
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern Engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for Sustainable development
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering Community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports And design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the Engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and Leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological
