The Department of Physics was started in 1964 and was upgraded to degree level in 1998. Right from its inception, Physics Department occupies a prime position in the academic scenario of the College. Prof. V. C. Thankachan was the first Physics lecturer of the college. He was followed by Prof. Nazar Kunju, Prof. Kunjiraman, Prof. K. Vikraman Nair and Prof. M. Abdul Sathar. Prof. M. Abdul Sathar become the Principal of the College during the period 2006 - 2008 and 2010 - 2014. Now the department of Physics is headed by Dr. L. Abdul Khalam. The Department offers B.Sc. Degree in Physics with Mathematics and Electronics as complimentary courses.
The department laboratories are equipped with sophisticated instruments to enhance the practical skills of students. The head of the department Dr. L. Abdul Khalam is a research guide under Kerala University. The department has a well equipped Micro Ceramic research laboratory. Faculty members and students use this lab to pursue research in material science, specifically in the area of Electronic Ceramics. It houses equipments procured under the UGC and KSCSTE research projects. So far the department has conducted many National Seminars, Science talks, Exhibitions and Group discussions.
The Department of Physics aims to provide opportunities for all students to develop employability and enterprise skills to achieve their career potential and satisfy employer needs.
