  •          The department has started in the year 1991 to cater to the needs of the students of Malnad region (after the separation of Kuvempu University from the University of Mysore) at Sahyadri Science College. 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. The department is now equipped with laboratories having sophisticated instruments, computer lab and departmental library. ?The department is also offering M.Sc programme through distance education since 2003-04.

    The department has produced 5 Ph.D?s, 7 M.Phils  and ten research students are working for their Doctoral Degree.  The research work carried out in the department has been published in several research papers of National and International repute

    So far five students of our Department have successfully completed UGC/CSIR/NET/GATE examination. Many students of our Department are continuing their research in various reputed Institutes and Universities in India and abroad.
