With the growing experience teachers have introduced new innovative techniques of teaching, learning and evaluation to motivate the students to become compatible with the modern techniques.
The Departmental laboratory is well equipped with all the modern, sophisticated instruments. The department is having its own departmental library which contained more than 150 books on various topics are catalogued and are easily accessible to the students. The knowledge of physics is transformed by very effective methodology. Up-to-date class notes with question bank are circulated to the student’s right from the beginning of the session. Students are encouraged to appear in the unit test exam and to take part in extra-curricular activities.
Department has conducted various Extra Co-curricular activities throughout the year under Sir J. C. Bose Society to make the learning as a memorable life long experience by organizing Field studies, Educational tour, Students seminar, Science Exhibition and guest lecture of eminent scientists, Professors and experts working in reputed Institution.

The main objective of all above activities is to create interest in the students in the subject to gain knowledge for their benefit in future and support services to mankind. On 24th Feb. 2013, department has organized national conference on “Material preparation and characterization: Nanoparticles and future trends”.
The main aim of the conference is to review the current trends and developments in Physics and Nanoscience. The conference has provided an ideal platform for the young researchers to interact with the senior scientists and professors to exchange their views and ideas and also to make scientific collaboration possible.

Planning for the session 2013-2014                                                                                     
Curricular, Co-curricular activities and Extracurricular activities such as workshop, seminars, exhibition and visit to various research laboratory and centers involved in scientific activities are planned in order to provide an excellent opportunity to the students to know, interact, exchange ideas, gain knowledge and discuss new trends and challenges in the field of science and technology to develop confidence in expressing themselves to be a good citizen of India.
