Department of Physics was established in 2000. In the beginning phase Department of Physics was run on Clock Hour Basis (CHB) by Mrs. Shivnikar R.S., Mr. Joshi K.S. and Smt Deshmukh A.B., Mrs. Kunale R.A.
In December 2016, Dr. Laxman P. Chikhale was appointed as Assistant Professor and Head of the Department as permanent teaching faculty. Today department runs with one permanent faculty, two temporary faculty and one laboratory attendant as supportive staff.
Presently department of Physics has its own well equipped laboratory.
- Students are expected to acquire core knowledge in physics, including the major premises of classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, electromagnetic theory, electronics, optics, special theory of relativity and modern physics.
- Students are also expected to develop written and oral communication skills in communicating physics-related topics.
- Students should learn how to design and conduct an experiment (or series of experiments) demonstrating their understanding of the scientific method and processes. Not only that they are expected to have an understanding of the analytical methods required to interpret and analyze results and draw conclusions as supported by their data.
- Students will develop the proficiency in the acquisition of data using a variety of laboratory instruments and in the analysis and interpretation of such data.
- Students will learn the applications of numerical techniques for modeling physical systems for which analytical methods are inappropriate or of limited utility.
- Students will realize and develop an understanding of the impact of physics and science on society.
- Apply conceptual understanding of the physics to general real-world situations.
- Describe the methodology of science and the relationship between observation and theory.
- Learn to minimize contributing variables and recognize the limitations of equipment.
- Discover of physics concepts in other disciplines such as mathematics, computer science, engineering, and chemistry.
- Develop the following experimental tools: Numerically model simple physical systems using Euler’s method, curve fitting, and error analysis.
- Analyze physical problems and develop correct solutions using natural laws.
The world is facing global energy crisis. Majority of our energy is generated using fossil
fuels which cause pollution and lead to global warming. Completely safe ways of using nuclear
energy are yet to be discovered. There is power cut even in major cities for hours. Small villages
get power only for a few hours in a day. There is large demand for energy and in absence of
immediate solutions for generating clean and safe energy, it is necessary to use energy
generated from existing sources more judiciously. This requirement of using present energy
sources more judiciously is main motivation for starting Energy Conservation Club (ECC).
ECC is promoting Energy conservation, environmental protection etc.
Energy Conservation Club is started with a vision of solving energy crisis problem.
Aims & Objectives:
➢ The aim of the club is to find techniques and create solutions that allow better use of
energy in non-intrusive way.
➢ The Club aims at exploring better uses of clean and renewable sources of energy.
➢ To create awareness for the students on the energy conservation and environmental
➢ To inculcate the mindset of the students to become ambassadors in raising the
awareness of energy saving.
