OVERVIEW

 

The Department of Physics at Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology, SMU is focused to upgrade the knowledge of physics for teaching and advanced research. The department has upgraded its laboratory and research facilities by funds of Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India under FIST program. It has a dedicated computer centre with high-end server with internet facility for postgraduate students where they learn programming languages like C/C++/Graphics/ and various software packages like Mathematica, PSPICE, GEANT4.

A full time two year MSc. (Physics) course approved by UGC was started by the department in 1999. The department is proud to have a team of very experienced and dedicated faculty members with varied specializations in particle, plasma, condensed matter physics and electronics. Specializations in above areas are offered to the students as a choice in the second year.

The department offers PhD program in all above specializations and gives the appropriate research environment to young physicists. The department also offers teaching assistantships to deserving candidates based on vacancies to pursue the research in the department.

The Department regularly has to its credit various research papers as publications in journals and workshop/conference proceedings.
