Department of Physics

Department of physics came into existence with the establishment of institution SJBIT. The Department is headed by Dr. B H Doreswamy. Currently the department is functioning with highly dedicated six faculty members as per the AICTE norms, whom many are doctorates and few are pursuing their Ph.D from various reputed universities and with four technical staff.

The main objective of the department is to teach engineering physics and Engineering physics laboratories for undergraduate students as per VTU regulations. The faculty members in the department have published more than 75 research papers in various national and international journals and over 55 papers presented in national and international conferences and symposium. The focused research activity of the department involves the synthesis and characterization of nano-materials, liquid crystals, thin-films and crystallizatio.

The department of Physics is recognized as research center from VTU (since 2009), where as two faculties were guiding the students for research activities. The department as signed MoU with GeNei laboratories Pvt. Ltd. Bangalore.

Department Vision

To provide quality basic education and training in Physics.

Department Mission

To be a dynamic and competitive center of excellence in teaching, learning and research in Physics and to ensure that the technical needs of students are addressed.
