History of the Department
Since establishment of the college, the department of Physics started with only I.Sc. course. Realizing the need of the local students the Calcutta University granted affiliation in Physics General course in 1962. Bright result of the departmental students and good infrastructure of the laboratory inspire the departmental teachers as well as the college authority to introduce the Physics Hons. course. In 1994 our college got affiliation for Physics Hons. course from Vidyasagar University and since then the course has been running successfully.
The department has been enriched by eminent teaching staff from the very beginning by the names of Prof. Hiralal Midya, Prof. Prabhakar Karmakar and Prof. Jyotirmoy Ray. They have to be remembered for their hard effort for allround development of the department. Later the heartiest effort of Dr. Mantu Kumar Das who is now position of Principal, SBSS Mahavidyalaya, Goaltore helps to reach the department as one of the best Physics departments in Vidyasagar University.
