Department of Physics

The Department of Physics, St. Dominic’s College Kanjirapally, has a glorious history of over four decades with many golden feathers in its cap. It is the first Under Graduate department in the college, having started the B.Sc. course in 1976. Prof. P T Joseph, the first Head of the Department, served as the principal of the college during 1990-98. It caters to the academic needs of more than 100 students specializing in Physics, around 120 students through complementary (subsidiary) courses and another 30 students through open courses. Presently there are 4 teaching staff and 2 non-teaching staff in the department. The department has very well equipped UG Core and complementary laboratories, workshops and a computer lab. The Department continues to be a DST- FIST sponsored one from 2017 onwards with a sponsorship for five years.
