The department was established in 1967 since inception of this institute and has the faculty strength of one Professor and two Assistant Professors. The department conducts short-term courses in emerging areas of Applied Science- Applied Physics, Applied Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, etc.. It has well equipped laboratories: Applied Physics, Laser & Fiber Optics, Optical Fiber Communication and Nanoscience & Nanotechnology. These laboratories have latest equipments like He-Ne and Semiconductor lasers, Bread boards, Fiber optics communication trainers, OFC system design and simulation softwares, Radiation detectors & counting systems, Ultrasonic detectors, Atomic Force Microscope, Spectrofluorophotometer in addition to conventional experiments in physics for graduate and post-graduate courses. The department has published text-books in Physics and Mathematics, undertook research studies and developed many teaching/learning modules in these area. Some video films have also been prepared on selected topics by the faculty of this department.


Promoting professional education and training of teachers in the area of Applied Science.
