Departmental Activities

Students’ Seminar: A Students’ Seminar was organized on 26.03.2018 on the following topics- Topic:
1.Why the method of separation of variables works in solving partial differential equations in Physics
2. How the concept of magnetic poles emerge in new formalism of teaching magnetostatics.
The speakers were Swagata Mallik for topic 1 and Kathika Das and Sayani Mitra for topic 2.

Wall magazine: Students prepare Wall magazines on various topics related to Physics.

Dr. Ruma Ray was invited to present a paper in the National Conference on Solid State Ionics (NCSSI-12) held in Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani, Rajasthan in Dec, 2017.

Post Graduate PHYSICS

A student attending less than 60% of the total number of classes held shall not be allowed to appear at the concerned Semester Examinations Gurudas College is the only non-Government college affiliated to Calcutta University offering post-graduate course in Physics. This course started in the academic session 2017-18. At present, this department has six full time and two guest teachers offering their expertise in the day-to-day functioning of the department. We offer two different specializations namely Condensed Matter Physics and High Energy Physics in the final year. In the present academic session, there are 18 students in the post-graduate section.

Admission Criteria: Minimum 55% in Hons. in Physics (50% in case of SC/ST/PWD candidates).
