Department of Physics offers Physics as one of the subjects along with other subjects including Mathematics, Chemistry, Geology, Electronics and Computer Science in combination as per the norms of RTM Nagpur University, Nagpur.

Department is equipped with equipment like furnaces, Hall effect apparatus, Digital Balances, Ultra Sonic Interferometer, etc. Department has well equipped laboratories at the junior college, Graduation and PG levels. Department has a collection of good books in the departmental library and the department staff uses ICT based on laptop, desktop.

The department receives funding for its development under the general grant received from UGC and the funding received as part of the research projects.

The department has organized a national level conference on the theme Emerging Techniques in Material Science on 22 August 2009.

The department has MoUswith Kamla Nehru Mahavidyalaya, Nagpur and SFS College Nagpur.
