B.Sc. in Physics is a rigourous three-year programme designed to train students to become scientists. A three-year sequence in mathematical physics supports courses in classical mechanics, electromagnetic theory, thermodynamics, optics, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and solid-state physics. Theory courses are reinforced by labs. Physics is complemented by pure mathematics, electronics, and chemistry.

The graduate teaching and labs are well developed. The degrees offered by the department have reputations and values in different circles of life. Students are getting jobs in industrial and academic institutes of the country and abroad. The department has sufficient number of well qualified academic staff.

Though the pressure of tests and projects cannot be denied, it is not relentless – there is time enough for discussion and dreaming, for participation in extra-curricular activities, and for fun and fellowship.

Extra curricular activities are the integral part of the academics which not only increases the interest in students about the curriculum but also makes them to understand the curriculum.

‘Department of Physics’ engaged few activities for the academic year 2015-16 for undergraduate B.Sc. students. The activities were open to all Physics students.
The activities conducted for this academic year are as follows.
i)          An Expert Lecture on solar energy.
ii)         A Visit to Nehru Planetarium.
iii)        An overnight Sky Observation.

  • An Expert Lecture on Solar energy
    Department organised a seminar on the topic “SOLAR ENERGY NEED OF FUTURE” in association with Science association of the college. Dr. Sudesh Bhagwat – Director of M.G. Solar Powertronics, gave an excellent talk on solar cells, power calculation and power generation. More than 50 students of B.Sc. attended the talk. The event was conducted on Wednesday, 20th January, 2016 in the Physics Laboratory, Staff of Physics, Chemistry attended the same. The event was ended with question answer session.
  • A visit to Nehru Planetarium
    B. Sc. Physics students visited the Nehru Planetarium on the Thursday, 21st January, 2016 to see a short film on “Our Universe”.  Department of Physics was the organising bodies along with the staff of Nehru Planetarium, Worli, Mumbai. The purpose of this activity was to make students to understand our Universe, its origin and cosmos; which is a part of their syllabus at S.Y. / T. Y. B. Sc. Level. Around 45 students and three staff members attended the film show. This show must have helped students to enhance their knowledge of cosmos.
  • An overnight sky observation
    Department of Physics has organised this event for students on 6th February, 2016 night and 7th February, 2016 morning. 50 students and the staff members (Dr. Abhay Ranade, Mr. Vishwas Deshmukh & Mr. Pradnyesh Waghmare) were co-ordinates with “Askash Mitra Mandal”. The programme was conducted at Mamnoli, Kalyan-Murbad Road, around 60 Km away from Bandra.
    The main purpose was to explore the night and study different movements of different planets and stars which are visible. We were very specific about the date because of an amazing event in solar system- Five planes was along the same line of vision namely Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Venus and Mercury.
    The team of Aakash Mitra Mandal helped us to explore the sky event started from 7 pm night and continued till next day morning 4.30 am; on 7th Feb, 2016. The students were informed basic about the sky observations, planets etc. An excellent geographical, celestial information was also given.
    Event had two sessions- i) on field, means gather in an open ground to observe the dark sky with naked eyes and by means of astronomical telescope. ii) Off field – It is practically impossible to observe the sky upright so few lectures were organised by Aakash Mitra Mandal viz. i) Telescopes ii) Celestial sphere to understand the Physics behind it.
  • What we have observed?
    Through telescope we have observed Jupiter with its four satellites, the red Mars, different constellations, a hazy structure of nebula, also five planets in a line; a rear phenomenon, and  nearest  Andromeda galaxy- M32, which is 22000 light year away.
    Overall the activity was highly informative and enjoyable.
  • Short term course in Laptop maintenance and repairing “Chip Level”

Department of Physics in association with Font Computer Institute have organised a three week short term certificate course in Laptop maintenance and repairing “Chip Level” for under graduate college students from 11th April to 30th April, 2016 in Physics Laboratory.

  • The department of Physics has encourage the under graduate students to attend various competitions / certificate courses conducted by University Of Mumbai, Kalina. IAPT, and various other colleges like R. D. National, Wilson, Royal College etc.
  • The department also encourage the T.Y.BSc. students to submit the research proposals  for “ Visiting student’s research programme-VSRP-2016, TIFR: Mumbai.
  • The department took extra efforts to teach syllabus of JAM-2016, Mr. Tarique appeared the exam.
  • Students of T. Y. B. Sc. Faced the interview conducted by WIPRO –GE, TCS-Infosys, Mahindra Tech etc.
