Department of Physics Welcomes You

The department of physics came into existence along with the inception of the college in 1967with an intake of 120 students.Shri. R. C. Honawad and Shri. S. V. Badawadagi joined the department in 1967 as a lecturer and a demonstrator respectively. Physics was taught for P.U.C. and B.Sc. I (as a minor subject) classes at that time. This department was started with an intension to strengthen the science education in the northernpartofKarnataka.                 .
The Department of Physics is equipped with modern laboratory equipment’s.All round development of students is aimed at with emphasis on the projects, practical trainings, seminars, campaigns, science exhibitions workshops.

Karnataka University, Dharwad introduced three subjects of equal importance in the year 1990-91 and physics became one of the optional subjects. Accordingly, laboratory was resettled with required instruments.

          Presently the department is working with two full time permanent faculty members with 48 teaching hours per week. In the academic year 2020-21 the department has   a total strength 176 B.Sc. (I, II and III).


To make the Department of Physics under the umbrella of VMKSR Vastrad Arts, Science & VS Bellihal Commerce College, Hungund the most preferred centre of higher education.

  • Making the students self-employable by using the knowledge of applied science.
  • The department intends to encourage the existence activities in different branches of physics


  • To create an opportunity for meaningful learning in the areas of Physics for the students in the region.
  • To develop the human capital from this region to contribute to the growth of Science and Technology.
  • To develop a center of research and higher education for social development of the region.
  • To give the students an intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience in the study of physics.
  • Provide the students with broad and balanced foundation in physics.
  • Develop in the students, the ability to apply their knowledge of physics and skill to the solution of the theoretical and practical problems.

Programme Outcome

On successful completion of this program, students would be able to:

Students will employ critical thinking and the scientific method to design, carry out, record and analyze the results of many nuclear physics experiments and get an awareness of the impact ofPhysics on the environment, society, and other cultures outside the scientific community.

Physics deals with a wide variety of systems; certain theories are used by all physicists. Each of these theories were experimentally tested numerous times and found to be an adequate approximation of nature. Physics uses mathematics to organize and formulate experimental results. From those results, precise or estimated solutions, quantitative results from which new predictions can be made and experimentally confirmed or negated. The results from physics experiments are numerical measurements. Technologies based on mathematics, like computation have made computational physics an active area of research.




Programme Specific Outcome

The theory of classical mechanics(it is a branch of physics) accurately describes the motion of objects, provided they are much larger than atoms and moving at much less than the speed of light. These theories continue to be areas of active research today. Similarly, Quantum Mechanics, Nuclear & Particle Physics and other mechanics.

The design and execution of the experiment should demonstrate an understanding of good laboratory and the proper handling of equipment’s like radioisotopes and also explain how the applications of Physics relates to the real world.
