About the Department

Department of Physics, PESITM came into existence since the inception of the college in June 2007. Department is running with the vision to impart quality education of Physics and to help students to understand the Physics principles behind the Engineering applications. We teach Applied Physics (both Theory and Practicals) to 4 engineering stream (EE, CS, ME and CV) students. Department of Physics is also recognized as a Research Centre in the field of Nanomaterial studies, Radiation, Ultrafine particles under VTU since 2011. Physics department has a well-equipped lab as well as dedicated and motivated faculty members.
