About the department

Located on the beautiful campus of Dr. AIT, the department of Physics was started in 1980 and there is no looking back since then. The Department has a team of dedicated staff members who are striving their best to achieve academic and research excellence. The aim of the department is to provide a strong foundation in basics of physics in the first year for students of all engineering disciplines so that these skills can be utilized later for understanding and analyzing complex engineering problems. The department has two well equipped laboratories for BE students and the experiments are designed to enhance the experimental skills of the students.

Research center of Physics department is recognized by VTU Belgaum and the faculty members are actively involved in research activities.  The reserch centre of the Department   has facilities for synthesising nano materials.  Currently 4 students are pursuing research for Ph.D. degree in the field of Nanoscience. The department has about 17 journal publications and faculty members have presented research papers in many national and international conferences.

Long term goals

To make engineering physics more relevant in engineering curriculum.  To encourage  and motivate the faculty of the department  to take up research activities.

Short term goals

Offering an interdepartmental elective in nanotechnology or quantum mechanics.  Augumenting the existing research facilities in the departmental research centre.

Departmental R&D facility

The Departmental R&D facility is recognised by VTU.  A nano material synthesis facility is established with VTU research grants.  The R&D facilities are being enhanced using the Technicl Education Quality Imporvement Programme (TEQIP) grants.
