Faculty - Science

Department of Physics

Welcome to our department.  We complement classroom teaching with lab methods to make our students understand abstract concepts and their practical use. In the classroom, students learn to analyse data and use logical thinking to solve numerical problems and in the lab, they understand the theories and concepts taught in the classroom using practical approaches, recording observations and drawing conclusions. Both methods develop logical thinking abilities, practical skills and inculcate a scientific approach. Guest lectures, quiz competitions / lecture competitions, demonstration of physics behind daily phenomenon and practical application of various laws including model making, visits to institutions like IUCCA, GMRT, Planetarium, tackling various competitive exams, develop a sound knowledge base, develop interest in the field, develop time management skills and prepare the students for an excellent performance at the board exams and other entrance exams, as well as for a future in engineering, medicine or pure sciences.

Counselling Unit

The success of an individual in life depends solely on the proper utilization of his/ her capacity within the limitations imposed by the society. However, it is not easy to practice what one preaches. There is no doubt that one’s goal should be to succeed, but this should be achieved without harming the interests of the others. Developing such an attitude requires a tidious mental process that needs dedicated and continuous attention. With competition entering into every field both, parents and the students feel the pressure. It becomes important then to ensure that the students make the optimum use of the opportunities by using the best of their abilities, which can enable them to know more about their own competencies and develop their overall personality.

Activities undertaken by the Counselling Unit
Individual and Group Counselling – At times it becomes absolutely necessary to talk to some one who is a professionally trained individual and listens with a very non-judgemental approach.
Parental Counselling (whenever needed) – Parents are called if needed or they are also free to contact the counsllor during the college hours.
Organising Awareness Programmes for students, staff members and parents like :
⦁ Cyber Crime and Cyber Safety
⦁ Drug Awareness
⦁ Suicide Prevention
⦁ Handling Adolescents
⦁ Coping with Adolescents
⦁ Many sensitization programmes
⦁ Enriching Minds Program : It is a Mental Health Awareness Programme that is conducted in each unit, under which the sessions
or the workshops are conducted for students, parents and staff. It normally has a common theme.
