We have project based learning implemented across all the years and courses. We have programmes like PROBE and JIGYASA to promote creative research among students. Our students and staff publish and present a large number of research papers every year and many  of their projects get awarded. Our students intern in major institutes all across India

The Department has been the source of innovation in physics education for decades. After academic autonomy we have been able to upgrade our syllabi and improve our teaching learning methods constantly. I am sure you will find this place academically creative and challenging.
