Department Of Physics


In 2010, when the Sidho‐Kanho‐Birsha university was founded, the physics department was amongst the first few departments which started offering MSc courses. The department began its journey with fifteen students from Purulia and adjacent districts. At present, two semesters are being run parallely with a total of forty students. Although we started our journey with very limited resources, the department now has adequate infrastructure including library, instruments and computer laboratories for successfully carrying out the post graduate course including the MSc project. There are five permanent faculty members, including one associate professor and four assistant professors, along with four supporting staff. The faculty members are currently involved in teaching along with research in their respective specializations including electronics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, optics and condensed matter physics. These subjects are also being offered as elective and advanced papers. Our faculty members carry out the MSc projects in a multitude of topics covering the various applications of physics in our society.

Message from DIC, Vision & Motto

Our team of professors and supporting staff have been trying our best to provide proper training to our MSc students. We are always encouraging our students for questions during and after classes. From taking a regular lecture to group discussions and powerpoint presentations, we are always trying different ways to efficiently teach our students. We believe that in future our students will be able to contribute towards the development of our country especially our district Purulia.


One day seminar on instrumentation has been organized in our department. Planets and various astronomical objects are shown to our students through a refractive type telescope.
