Beginning as a small department offering only an M.Sc. course in one special subject, Spectroscopy, today it has grown into one of the largest departments on the campus offering both Master's and Doctoral programs covering one or more aspects of Physics in the following areas of study:

It was one of the first few university departments in the country selected under the University Leadership Project of the UGC to take up the College Science Improvement Program (COSIP) in Physics. This program stretched over a period of ten years during which the undergraduate physics curricula and teaching were modernised.
