Later, during January 1994, it was shifted to the university campus at Shankaraghatta. The department had started with a strength of 24 students and was offering only one specialisation i.e., Nuclear Physics till 2005. Now the departmental? intake is raised to 37 and two specialisations (i) Nuclear Physics and (ii) Condensed Matter Physics are being offered. The department has introduced choice based credit system(CBCS) with semester scheme for two years M.Sc. course and with project work in the fourth semester, from the academic year 2005-06. The department has qualified teachers who are from various prestigious national research institutions and universities.
