The Department of Physics was established in the year 2000, and is as old as the CMR Institute of Technology itself! CMRIT’s Department of Physics has been duly recognized as a research centre by Visvesvaraya Technological University and conducts Ph.D programmes in Physics. The Department also focuses on teaching Engineering Physics theory and laboratory courses to students of all branches of engineering. Engineering Physics is offered as part of the first year foundation curriculum in Basic Sciences.
The Department of Physics is enriched with well-qualified and experienced faculty members with diverse areas of specialization. The Department periodically hosts seminars and talks by eminent scientists. The Department highly encourages students to keep themselves abreast of new trends in science and technology. Faculty members are involved in various research and development activities in frontier areas such as thin film solar cells, nano-materials, nuclear physics, and astrophysics and have published papers in reputed international journals. Overall, the department offers a very healthy study and research atmosphere.
