The study of Physics is important to understand the world around us, and the world beyond us. It teaches us how things work. It encompasses the study of something as big as our galaxy as well as the smallest atomic particles. Studying Physics strengthens logical reasoning and problem-solving skills that are very valuable in Engineering study. It teaches students how to analyze complex problems, and gives them a strong quantitative background that can be applied in any technical field.
Study of Physics prepares students to work on pathbreaking ideas in science and technology. Physics has led man to great discoveries, from computers and robots to sustainable energy solutions. Hence, a good foundation in Physics is absolutely essential for a student to become an efficient engineer.
The Department of Physics is one of the oldest departments at MVJ College of Engineering – it was established in 1982. The Department offers Engineering Physics course for First-year Engineering students. The course is designed focusing on the fundamental concepts of Physics and on the practical application of these concepts and techniques to technology. This balance between fundamental science and application makes our course highly interdisciplinary, having a strong correlation with Electrical, Electronics and Communication, Mechanical, Chemical, Aeronautical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering subjects. And this firm foundation stands every student in good stead, whichever branch of Engineering he has chosen.
Two Physics courses are taught to all students of First year Engineering, irrespective of the branch that they are going to pursue. These are Engineering Physics and Engineering Physics Lab. Over a period of one year, the students master basic Physics that is indispensable for a budding Engineer, as this is going to be the cornerstone for all that they are going to learn in the next three years.
Every faculty member at the Physics Department has taken it upon themselves to give their best to students. With years of experience behind them, they are experts in the field. They participate actively in national and international conferences and workshops, presenting papers and giving lectures. There is no limit to knowledge acquired, and each teacher at the Department keeps striving constantly to keep up with the rapidly advancing technology, by educating and upgrading themselves, through conferences and workshops.
When a student enters the portals of an Engineering college, he is nervous, full of fears and anxieties as he steps into this most significant phase of his life that is going to shape his future. As the student makes this transition from school to a professional college, he needs all the help and support that he can get. And our teachers at the Physics Department hand-hold every student and see him/her through those first few difficult weeks and ensure that he/she settles in comfortably.
