Department of Physics
About the department & subject
The Department of Physics is one of the oldest departments of the Govt. Degree College, Sopore which initiated its courses in B.Sc including subjects of Physics viz. Mechanics, Electricity and Magnetism, Solid State Physics and electronics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Optics, Molecular and Nuclear physics. The Department of Physics is housed in the spacious college building equipped with all basic facilities. The Department boosts a faculty of inspiring teachers, creative students and equally accomplished alumni. As pointed out by Albert Einstein “The supreme art of the teacher” is “to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”. The Department is equipped with excellent infrastructure and latest books in the field of Physics. Richard Feynman had once said, “It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are, if it doesn’t agree with experiment, it is wrong.” Implementing this wisdom into practice, we ensure that apart from imparting strong theoretical foundation, we also provide students with laboratory that are fully equipped with latest facilities and instruments so that they can gain knowledge and practice by conducting experiments on optics, electronics, mechanics, thermal physics etc. The overall objective of the department is to provide high quality learning in physics, grooming bright undergraduate who will push frontiers of knowledge in physics and its related disciplines through academic activities.
- To establish a platform for the propagation and creation of knowledge through teaching and learning in physics at various levels.
- To help to construct a scientific society which encourages logical thinking and impart modern knowledge of physics to generate competency and skills.
The mission of the department is to inspire, prepare, and empower students to succeed in the ever-changing world. The department provides an environment conducive to nurturing analytical minds. The students at the department of physics are provided with holistic education to empower them to lead from the front. The students are encouraged to think out of the box and tackle real life situations.
