The department of Physics at Burdwan Raj College was established in the year 1958, although Physics as a subject had been taught since 1936.
As per academic record students admitted here are among the best students of Burdwan and neighbouring districts. Most of them are recipients of national (DST Inspire) and/ or state-level scholarships.
Our laboratories are well-equipped with sufficient facilities for both Honours and General practical classes. Internet connection (high-speed broadband) is available for teachers as well as students. In addition to the college library, textbooks and reference books as listed by the University of Burdwan are available in the Departmental Library.
The department has a battery of well-experienced faculty members hailing from different universities. Most of them have good exposure to research and are extremely sincere and regular in taking their assignments.
At the UG level, the academic atmosphere offered to the students is quite adequate to compete for national-level entrance tests for M.Sc. or Integrated Ph.D. courses all over India.
