B.Sc., Physics

The department was established in the year 2005 as a UG department and evolved to offer postgraduate programme (PG) from 2016. The department is marching forward with full of enthusiasm. Our faculty takes great pride in sharing that our department rigorously follows outcome-based education in the teaching learning process. Also, they are highly encouraged to enroll themselves in any one of the co-curricular and club (Quantum Club) activities in the campus and are sent to the competitions being held in the other Colleges and Universities. The faculties are highly qualified and are involved in both teaching and research. Our faculty were very much encouraged and appreciated by our management for securing cent percentage results in the University Examinations.

Learning Physics helps us to understand how the world around us works. Physics is the foundation for almost all modern technology and education. Physics improves quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills, which are useful in a variety of fields. A graduate student major in physics has an outstanding career opportunity for training the mind in all branches of engineering and information/computer science disciplines.

Physics at Annai College of Arts and Science gives a student a transformational experience by virtue of its legacy in the College and well-knit curriculum. The Department of Physics is one of the star departments of the college with 7 faculty members including one non-teaching staff assisting them in the laboratories and around 60 undergraduates students for the major subject, in addition to the Core Physics Programs. The Department regularly offers allied and elective Physics courses to the students of other science departments in the college, especially to those in Chemistry, Computer science and Mathematics. The Physics department originating from a very strong application oriented path, the department’s programmes continue to march forward with our visionary staff members consistently striving for the students so that they could reach beyond the boundaries bringing a lot of laurels to our nation. It provides a conductive learning environment for the students to develop scientific insights and practical skills in order to apply them for solving real world problems. The Alumni of the Department are well placed in diverse areas including premier research and educational institutions, public, banking and private sectors.


Our Unique features are:
⦁ Every year, we take our students for Industrial Visit and it has been submitted as report.
⦁ Counseling for the students is given by Mentor.
⦁ Communication training is given by Training and Placement Cell.

The Department happily welcomes all those students who intend to achieve success in the world with Physics as a means.


  • To transform the significance of physics to the students and develop them to the next level upto research through quality education.


  • To disseminate current scientific needs to the students through real time teaching methods and by motivating research to reach any contribution to the scientific community.
