Department of Physics

Department of Physics was established in 1968 with an ambition to cater to the demand of people of Punjab, particularly Malwa region. Since the time of its establishment, this department has made glorious achievements to its credit. Physics, being a fundamental subject helps to understand the other subjects. Thus, this subject is also essential and integral part of the syllabus of the undergraduate courses.
