Department of Physics



Located on the scenic campus of SDM College of Engineering & Technology, the Department of Physics was established in the year 1979. The Department of Physics provides a dynamic and diverse environment for the training of undergraduate Engineering students and involved in the research activities in the core contemporary Physics.
We are primarily focusing on academic growth and excellence of undergraduate students. In teaching, department attained a level to offer a high quality academic program to the undergraduates through the relevant curricula in new interdisciplinary areas.
As a recognized research center of Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) Belagavi, research programs of the department includes major thrust areas such as Material Science, Nano Technology and Thin/Thick Film characterizations. The vitality of our research programs is reflected through enrollment of students for Ph. D. program and recent publications in the reputed International & National Journals and presentations of research articles in Conference proceedings.
