Department of Physics


Department of physics is an integral part of the University Institute of Engineering & Technology from the days when UIET was established in the year 1996. Physics Department is housed in the Ist floor of the Academic Building and B. Tech. laboratories are situated at the ground floor of the Electronics & Communication Engineering building of UIET. The department of physics runs the following core courses in physics (PHY-S101 & PHY-S102) in two semesters for the first year students of all six branches of engineering. The physics department has well equipped laboratories including the dark room experimental facility which meet the requirements of undergraduate courses in various engineering branches. The department also offers one year full time M. Phil (Physics) course. The physics department is having very dedicated and competent faculty members. Many national and international seminars and workshops are attended by the faculty. They are actively involved in their own research fields. The faculty members of physics department take classes in the other departments like M.Sc. (Electronics) and the M.Sc.( Life Sciences) if necessary. They also take part in other co-curricular activities of the Institute and University.

1. PHYSICS –101 LAB :

The PHY-S101 Lab. is designed in accordance with the theory of PHY-S101 (PHYSICS – I) course. The experiments are mostly based on mechanics such as motions of rigid bodies, moment of inertia, small oscillations, projectiles motions etc. Graphical and error analysis of various experimental data are also taught in the Lab. Classes.

2. PHYSICS –102 LAB:

In the PHY-S102 Lab. is designed with experiments mostly based on optics and electromagnetism. The theory related to these experiments of optics and electromagnetism are taught in the lectures of PHY-S102 (PHYSICS – II). The experiments of optics are performed in the dark room of physics Lab. Here the students for the first time get the thrill of observing the phenomenon like interference, diffraction, dispersion, electricity and magnetism.


Well equipped with modern computational facilities for theoretical computational physics MPH-102.

Course Curriculum

B. Tech Course

1. First Semester

PHY-S101 course is offered in the Ist semester for Ist year B. Tech students of all the branches of engineering. The topics that are mostly covered are related to Classical mechanics and Quantum Mechanics. The topics on mechanics give the students the concepts about Newto's Laws, frame of references, forces, work, energy, momentum, rigid body motions, torque, central forces, small oscillations, Lagrangian, Hamiltonian, Gyroscopic motion, Kepler's laws, special theory of relativity etc. In Quantum Mechanics the topics covered are wave particle duality, de-Broglie matter wave and application, Heisenberg Uncertainty principle and applications, wave function, Schrodinger equation and applications, X-ray diffraction etc.

2. Second Semester

PHY–S102 course is offered in the IInd semester of the Ist year B.Tech. The topics that are mostly covered are related to Optics and Electrodynamics. In optics topics covered are Interference, thin films, Newton’s ring, dispersion, Fraunhoffer type of diffraction at the single, double slits and grating and their resolving powers, and in electrodynamics topics that are covered are electrostatics, magnetostatics, electromagnetic induction, magnetic materials, Maxwell’s equations, electromagnetic waves equations and their solutions in free space, Poynting theorem etc. The course also deals with a few topics on vector analysis which covers mathematical tools like vector integration (line, surface and volume integrals) and related theorems needed for electromagnetism taught in this course.
