Department of Physics has been established at the same time when St. Xavier’s college was founded in 1988 AD to run the Intermediate of Science (I. Sc.) program. In Intermediate of Science (I. Sc.) program, Physics is one of the major subjects along with Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. The Bachelor and Master program in physics was initiated in 2002 and 2007 AD respectively. Physics is an elective paper in B.Sc. CSIT as well which was run in 2007AD. In Master level, department offers four elective papers: Solid State Physics, Biomedical Physics, Plasma Physics and Astrophysics. In addition to this, Physics department facilitates dissertation and project for undergraduate and graduate students. We are also planning to extend researches in collaboration with national and international Universities. The department of physics here, in St. Xavier’s College, has been upgrading its resources and technologies by closely looking into its possible challenges.
Besides curriculum, department of Physics offers various research based activities. The department continues to grow every day in order to underline Physics as an exciting paper; the department has got a team of talented, enthusiastic and highly imaginative faculties. Their tireless commitment to the intellectual growth of the student is praiseworthy.
The department offers following facilities:
- Well-equipped lab
- Separate Research lab
- Class room with Multi media
The department offers following activities:
- Weekly seminar
- Monthly guest lecture
In order to promote research activities in our country, St. Xavier’s College has given priority to the higher study in Physics. In 4-year B.Sc. Physics program, project work is an elective paper in the fourth year. We encourage students to opt for project work against Material Science. In last two years of period, more than 90% students passed selected project work as an elective paper and nearly same percentage of students in M. Sc. Physics program either selected thesis or project work in their academic course. This clearly shows that our department is more focused into the research work along with academic excellence. Our students are encouraged to attend national and international conferences in physics related fields either for oral and poster presentation. The students involved in research are encouraged to publish their work in either national or international journals. Apart from this to maintain the research friendly environment, our department is arranging workshops and conferences in regular basis in our college.
- To initiate for higher research programs.
- To increase faculties more qualified in research.
- To encourage and support students for different for their research.
- To develop well-equipped research laboratory.
- To upgrade teaching methodology at multimedia based technology.
