WELCOME TO DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS.

            The department of physics was established in the year 1971-72 with the objective making physics learning interesting and applicable. The department started offering Physics as principal subject at 3rd Year level since 1979-80 while P.G. course was introduced in 1990-91 to cater the needs of students willing to pursue higher education in the subjects. Physics department’s faculty members played an important role in development of Physics departments in sister institutes of education society a) Ploy technique college, b)Engineering college, c) Computer Science department of the college, d) Women’s polytechnique college, e) MCVC of junior college, e) Electronics Department of the college. Project based learning is compulsory at U.G. & P.G. Level. Among the 7 faculty members one is a Ph. D. holder and three M. Phil degree holder.

             The faculty have involved in the academic curriculum designed by the university continuously for three years F.Y.B.Sc.2008-09. ; S.Y.B.Sc.2009-10, and T.Y.B.Sc.2010-11.

Seminars are given by the students on different topics including practical. Study tours, visit to industry and research institute help our students in their independent learning practices.

                Student teacher relations are very friendly due to which we can shape the carrier as per their ability and capability which results in 100% placement of our students. Our teachers constantly upgrade themselves by attending orientation courses, refreshers courses, workshops, seminars, symposia, conferences. Mr. G. T. Shirole and Dr Dighe P. M. have completed the minor projects funded by BCUD. Student and teacher visit Pravara Medical Trust, Fergusson College, Pune University, NCL, GMRT, etc. Every year our students are selected for Advance Diploma in radiotherapy at Tata Memorial Hospital Mumbai. The selection is on the basis of written tests and interview at national level. All these selected students get stipend of Rs. 6000/- per month. We encourage and provide guidance to students for different competitive examinations. We feel proud to say that all our students are employed in different fields like industries, IT, research, civil services, defense services medical fields, etc.

                As a social commitment teachers and students of our department visit nearby villages, farm laborers and organize meetings to popularize renewable energy sources. During the visit social awareness about the efficient use of agricultural pumps sets, home appliances and renewable energy sources so that electricity will be saved. Women are trained to use solar cooker, solar drier, solar lantern and other devices. This is a unique social activity of our department.

              Continuous disciplined efforts of the faculty member’s results in providing the responsible and good citizen to society.

Padmashri Dr. Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil, the pioneer of Sugar Co-operative movement, who had a humble beginning, was chiefly instrumental in, organizing the much exploited sugarcane 'growers of the 44 villages, in and around Pravaranagar, way back in 1948, and establishing Asia's first co-operative sugar factory, which was commissioned in 1950.
