Department of Physics

The faculty in the department is well qualified with experience. The research of faculty of the department has been published in peer reviewed national and international journal. The department organizes various social activities to create awareness about the impact of microbial world on human health and environment.

The faculty is actively involved in the university curriculum designing & development at both UG & PG levels. The success rate at UG and PG level is almost 100 %. Department has organized one national, one state level seminar & three university level workshops in last five years. Student- teacher relations are quite friendly so that interesting fields & abilities among them are easily captured for proper counseling & guidance, which has resulted into almost 100% placement. Teachers constantly upgrade themselves by attending orientation & refreshers courses, workshops, seminars, symposia, conferences etc.

Every year 1-2 students from the department are selected at national level for Advance Diploma in radiotherapy at Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai. Department also encourages and guide the students to appear for various competitive examinations. In addition to teaching field, students are placed in industries, IT sector, research institutes, civil & defense services & medical fields, etc.

Department has Recognized Research Center of SP Pune University, Pune since 2014. Dr. P. M. Dighe & Dr. N. D. Sali are recognized research guides. At present four students are pursuing Ph.D. Imperative areas of research are renewable energy- Solar Energy, Nuclear Physics, Nanotechnology & thin films.

Department has successfully completed three minor research projects funded by BCUD Savitribai Phule Pune University & UGC, New Delhi while one minor project is ongoing. Faculty members have published 30 papers in national/international journals & written 9 books in last five years.

As a social commitment, teachers and students of the department visit nearby villages and schools to popularize & promote use of renewable energy sources, especially Solar Energy. During the visits, awareness is created about the pollution & climate change, efficient use of electrical home appliances & renewable energy utilizing devices .With the help of demonstrations, people are trained in using solar energy utilizing devices such as solar cooker, solar drier, solar lantern and solar water heaters. This is one of the unique social activities of our department carried out since last 15-20 years. Continuous & disciplined efforts of the faculty have resulted into creative & responsible citizen to the society.
