Subject Tour

Department of Physics organized one day subject tour at Mini-hydel power project, Pahalgam on 15th June 2013. The students of B.Sc. 3rd year along with the staff visited the generating station and the barrage. The students had thorough interaction with the engineers of the Project, and developed huge interest about the technology and its utility, its limitation, depleting of land and the environmental risks in the surroundings. The students along with staff got so inspired that most of the students thoroughly enquired about the state’s potential regarding hydal energy. In addition, they were briefed about the mechanism involved in the functioning of all the components of the power project.
