About The Department

Located in the scenic green campus of Adamas University, Kolkata, the Department of Physics started its activity in 2015. The department is an active beehive of research being carried out in the wide variety of frontier areas as well as high quality Under-graduate, Post-graduate and Doctoral programs. The research program of the department cover both pure and applied physics areas like Condensed Matter Physics, Particle Physics, Theoretical Nano-Science, Material Science, Microelectronics, Bio-Medical Instrumentation, Applied Electronics, and many more…

The department has flexibility in framing courses and conducting tests and examinations. The Department conducts programs at the Bachelor’s, Master’s as well as at the Doctoral Research levels. Establishment of state-of-the art experimental and computational facilities has allowed us to venture into advanced domains of pure Physics like Condensed Matter Physics, Material Science, High Energy Physics, Biophysics and Nanoscience as well as emergent career oriented interdisciplinary area like Medical Physics and Instrumentation With a vibrant and active Ph.D. program, in which research students are currently enrolled, Department of Physics thrives to be one of the leading research group of the world.

In addition to these programs conducted by the Department, the faculties regularly offer several core and elective physics courses to the Engineering, Science (other than Physics) and Law students of the University.

VISION OF THE DEPARTMENT

Vision of the Physics department is to lay the foundational stone of excellence and spur development of the University as a premier Institution in the field of Physics, by igniting and nurturing enthusiasm, interests and passion, among the students through the advanced curricula.

MISSION OF THE DEPARTMENT

1: To provide quality training to the students for Physics education and equip them with skills required for higher studies in International and National institutions of great repute.

2: To motivate young minds and unravel their talents both in the fields of Theoretical and Experimental Physics, through dedication to teaching, commitment to students and innovative teaching learning methods and assessment throughout the year.

3: To provide the students state of the art knowledge through upgraded and advanced curricula, hands on training in state of the art laboratories and in high end computation and simulation to make them competent from a global perspective.

4: To enable the students having a clear perspective of ongoing research activities in different fields of Physics by introducing several enriched courses like “Seminar on Contemporary in Physics”, “Dissertation”, “Projects” etc.

5: To prepare the students ready for industry oriented jobs by having hands on training through “Summer Internship” program in different reputed Companies or Research Organizations.

6: To bridge the skill gaps and make students industry ready and relevant and dutiful towards society, by adding various value added courses like “Design Thinking”, “Venture Ideation”, “Human Values and Ethics”etc.

7: To add to the values of the University by introducing pioneering programs like M.Sc. (Tech) in Medical Physics and Instrumentation which is more job oriented program.

8: To evolve strategies in the Department for continuous Improvement in all aspects of academic and administrative issues.
