The Department of Physics at DIT University was established in the year 1998 to provide adequate support to all undergraduate programs in engineering and sciences. Engineering Physics I is being taught in the first year of B.Tech Program in all the branches and Engineering Physics II is being taught in B.Tech Petroleum II Year. Apart from these two courses Department of Physics also conducts elective courses in Photonics and Nanotechnology for B.Tech IV year, M.Tech and Ph.D. programs.
In 2016 the Department of Physics has initiated a Masters program in Physics with specialization in Electronics. The department is initiating B.Sc. Honors (Physics) in 2017, and also planning to start in near future an M.Tech program in Materials Science and Technology. These programs are being planned by looking at the growing demand of the need of research in basic science and in the field of Materials Science.
