At present, the department maintains elementary and general physics laboratories with facilities to conduct experiments in mechanics, optics, thermal physics, electricity and magnetism, and sound. Each of these laboratories can accommodate forty students. In addition, there are two well-equipped laboratories dedicated for optics and electronics. There is another laboratory for students majoring physics, which can be occupied by about twenty students. Usually, each laboratory class is of three-hour duration and the total amount of laboratory usage time is about 40 hours per week. Networked computer facilities are available in these laboratories for performing computer aided experiments. A research laboratory is also available for the postgraduate research work.
