The exponential growth of Engineering and Technology has benefited the mankind with extreme sophistication and comfort. To sustain this development, continuous research and development should take place not only in Engineering and Technology but also in Basic Science such as Physics.

The various divisions of Physics like Heat, Optics, Acoustics, Semiconductor Physics, Nuclear Physics, Energy Studies, Materials Science, etc provide the foundation by enlightening the Fundamental facts, Principles, Laws and Correct sequence of events to develop the Engineering and Technology field for the prosperity of human beings.


At the end of the study of II Semester the student will be able to

  • Identify good conductors and insulators of heat.
  • Analyze the relation between pressure, volume and temperature of gas and to interpret the results.
