Introduction

The Department of Physics at Dr.M.G.R.Educational and Research Institute, University, a fully accredited and comprehensive institution, came into existence in the year 1988 as a servicing department teaching Engineering Physics to the students of Engineering & Technology.In the year 2014, it has became an independent department under the faculty of Humanities & Science.The undergraduate program B.Sc. Physics was started in the same year and the two year post graduate programme M.Sc. Physics was started in the year 2019.All the courses offered by the department are unique in its own way and are designed to cater to the requirements and needs of the student community. The department has conducted several levels of bridge courses (for I year B.Tech students) and also remedial classes based on timely demand and requirements. It is one among other major departments that pursues timeless research and also contributes immensely to the field. Most of the Faculty members are Ph.D. holders who have their research publications in well established journals.The department also offers Ph.D programme in several areas of Physics with special focus on Nano technology. It is a matter of pride and elation to mention that the department admits average students too and molds them to attain a steady and respected level in their future career. The student strength increases in arithmetical progression year after year and the department leaves no stone unturned in striving to increase it exponentially in the forthcoming years.
