Physics is the most fundamental science that deals with the properties and interactions of matter and radiation. Understanding the world around us, including the modern technological advancements, is based on centuries of developments in physics. As such, physics provides the basis for all applied sciences and technologies.
Currently the Department of Physics at SRM University-AP, Amaravati offers the Bachelor of Technology in Engineering Physics (B.Tech), Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) and Ph.D. graduate program in physics. The B.Tech in Engineering Physics with minor in other program gives the students a solid foundation in skills like problem-solving, observation skills, numerical aptitude, practical thinking and reasoning ability. This can lead to a variety of other careers, which the students can choose after the completion of the program. The B.Sc. with Physics major (or minor) program gives the students a solid foundation of concept and problem-solving ability with which they are able to solve real world problems by modelling it and design it with the application of new experimental techniques. The department also encourages research opportunities for undergraduate students, as well as graduate students, in several areas of experimental and computational/theoretical physics.
The department faculty members are engage in cutting edge research problems. In last two years faculty members published 20 research articles with average impact factor of 5.1. One patent has been filed and eight govt. funded projects (DST, SERB, BRNS, UGC-DAE) are on-going with total outlay of 3.52 Crores.
