HoD’s Message:

Prof. Ravina Hassan

Dear students
Welcome to the undergraduate Department of Physics.Your imagination is a preview of life’s coming attractions—Einstein. Here in this department we believe in guiding students towards positive thinking, true power of thinking and creative practices. With passion in your heart make the fight “even if tough” go ahead and tell the world, “I too can”. Success is that feeling of deep satisfaction that starts in your soul and radiates through your being.
Wishing you best of luck

HOD – Physics

About Department:

The department of Physics, one of the oldest and most prestigious centers of Govt. College for Women was founded in 1960. This department has produced thousands of students /alumni who came to occupy the important positions in the diverse fields of human activity. Department has produced great teachers and academicians, who proved their worth in different spheres of society.
Earlier there were teachers, who contributed valuable services in this department. However, the staff strength till date has reduced to three. Out of the total sanctioned staff strength only three teachers are available on permanent basis. In addition to the teaching staff we have one laboratory Assistant and two Lab. bearers in the department.
Our department has one staff room and three laboratories .The present enrollment of the students in Physics is about 500 Despite the limited accommodation and other resources, department does not lag in any way in the academic activities like conduct of tests, conduct of subject tours etc. Our students are bright enough as for as the understanding of physics subject is concerned and have proved their talent at all levels in the society. Hope this department will shine further in future.


1. The Department aims at acting as centre of physics education in keeping with the highest academic standards obtaining in the national /international level.
2. It aims at playing a pivotal role as a model and pace setter department in the area of Higher learning in the context of the valley.
3. It aims at being a powerful agency for human resources development through fostering the potentialities and talents of its students so that they are adequately equipped for playing socially and economically useful roles in the future society.
4. It is desires to make optimal use and integration of modern methods of teaching and learning.
5. The department seeks improvements in the following areas:
Development of laboratories for
 Solid State Physics practicals
 Dark room practicals
 Laser bean experiments
 Computer lab.
Improvement of Academic Facilities
 Expansion of Department Library
 Arranging Physics journals /magazines for the department
 Optional use of teaching aids.
Development of research activity in the department.
