Research is a systematic way of gathering data, a harnessing of curiosity. We have a research centre in Physics recognized by Anna University to mobilize the knowledge resources available for research and to come up with innovative solutions in the field of Science and Humanities.
The research mainly focuses on connecting the real world problems to their solution.
The department has four ongoing projects worth 77.19 lakhs sanctioned by Government funding organizations like DSIR, DST& BRNS.
75% of our faculty members are pursuing Ph.D in their discipline and we have 5 faculty guiding about 14 research scholars.
The faculty members of the department update their knowledge to serve the society and student community by attending various national and international conferences and workshops in India and abroad.
Our department has the credit of 18 papers in National Journals, 190 in International Journals, 150 in National Conferences and 113 papers in various International Conferences.
