Kamrup College



PHYSICS - widely known as the Father of all sciences - is the foundation of all the natural sciences and the most advanced as well as dynamically changing discipline in the natural sciences. Studies of physics are explicating in all kinds of materials and their properties from elementary to complex on the subatomic to the cosmic level. Furthermore, the physics is serving to widen human knowledge by generating new general concepts connecting diverse objects of study, such as information and energy, individual and collective dynamics of elements. The policy of the Department is to promote world-leading experimental and theoretical physics in all its range. The Department inspires applied and collaborative research with other Institutes/Universities all over the country and abroad.

The Department of Physics of Kamrup College, Chamata (KCC), is a part of the newly introduced Science Stream of the college, and has the affiliation from Gauhati University (GU), Assam. It was established in 2022. Located on the scenic campus of the College in Chamata, on of the finest village in Nalbari district in Assam, the department started its activity in 2022 and there is no looking back since then. Headed by 3 sincere and the highly talented faculty members among the pool of deserving candidates available in the state, the department today is an active beehive of curriculum being carried out in a wide variety of frontier areas as well as high quality graduate programs.The department currently offers the three years B.Sc. in Physics, through CBCS. The department also has a very vibrant research environment. The Department is regularly organizing invited talks for the benefit of students and faculty through the platform "ITUXITU" INITIATED by the Department. The website address is www.ituxitu.in. Faculty members of the department are also actively involved in attending international and national conferences and delivering invited talks in these conferences. The plan of the faculties are very active in extension programmes, in reaching out to students and the general public, through popular articles in the local press, popular as well as technical books in Hindi and English, demonstration lectures, summer programmes for high school and undergraduate students, video lessons on undergraduate physics, etc.

The mission of the Physics department is to
1) convey to the students on the elegance and magnificence of the subject of physics and interdisciplinary area, its bountiful potential to enrich human lives,
2) boost their skill to generate acquaintance and deliver it as well as inculcate in them a scientific temper by ethical way and sense of socio-economic responsibility,
3) conduct high quality research leading to the discovery of new scientific truths for benefit of living things in the worldwide.

"www.ituxitu.in" is an online talk series platform, conceptualised and pioneered jointly by Department of Physics, Kamrup College and Department of Physics, Dakshin Kamrup College, that brings researchers involved in cutting-edge research in Physical Sciences to the UG/PG students of colleges and universities in Assam. Speakers present their research, share their experiences in academia and guide the young audience members to exciting careers in science.
