Overview

Physics plays a vital role to enrich the science. It is the fact behind every action occurring in our surroundings. With the motive to enlighten the students’ knowledge in physics, Dr.N.G.P. Arts and Science College established the Department of Physics in the year 2015. Since then, the sole objective of this department is to ignite the minds of students to relish the beauty of Physics. As Physics is the basic science required behind every innovative creation, the students in this department are cultivated to churn their minds in innovative area.

Started with only undergraduate course in 2015, the department started its post graduate course in the year 2018, M.Phil., and Ph.D., courses in the year 2019. The courses offered in this department are focus on diverse fields with depth in their respective streams. With a team of dedicated faculties and substantial infrastructural facilities, the department march towards Excellence!!!
