About the department

The Journey

Our college was established in 1964. Next year, in 1965 Physics department was established with the sanction of pre-university B.Sc. course. First two faculty were, Sri Sanjay Khan Bhaduri and Sri Binoyendra Narayan Chakroborty Chowdhury.
In 1968, with the sanction of the University of Calcutta and the Higher Education Council, Government of West Bengal, the General Undergraduate course of Physics was introduced. Professor Sudeb Chandra Das, and later Professor Arunagshu Chowdhury, along with Graduate Laboratory Instructor Lakshmi Kanta Ghosh, laboratory assistant Ajit Sarkar started to build up a Laboratory for their students, which holds a pride of place in the college till today.

The Physics Honours course was introduced in 2002. The existing laboratory was extended. New rooms were added along with many equipments to cater the requirements of students. Subsequently two more faculty positions were created.

In spite of the rural environs and the reality that most of our students are first generation learners, we the present teaching and non-teaching staff of the department feel happy to report that several of our recent graduates have performed creditably not only in University Exams but also in competitive exams and won gainful employment in several organizations, hence established themselves in life as a good citizen. We proudly state that 14 students of our Department serve as School Teachers in neighbourhood.

A few basic factors have been responsible for the success of the Department.
Four full time and two part time Professors take utmost care to complete the recommended theoretical and practical syllabus.
Our Instrument Keeper Sri Gobinda Chandra Ghosh along with the laboratory assistant Sri Tapas Kumar Bhowmick, assure proper functioning of the very well-equipped Laboratory where at least 75 different experiments are performed around the year.
Our students can also avail 10 computers with internet facility.
In addition to the Central Library, our Department has almost three hundred volumes of Text and Reference books which the students may borrow.
All these , along with continuous mentoring and counselling by faculty and various extra- curricular activities like educational tours, model making, students’ seminar and seminars by eminent personalities help our students to blossom to their potential for leading a happy and prosperous life.
