Department of Physics
Nayagarg Autonomous College, nayagarh-752069
Physics as a pass
subject was introduced in the curriculum just one year after the
very inception of the college, 1961-62 with due affiliation from
utkal university, Bhubaneswar. later on, in the academic session
1974-75, the college got permission from Govt. and affiliation
from utkal university to impart Hons teaching in physics with an
intake capacity of 16 students. Taking into account, the growing
demand from students to continue physics education in this
college by a team of extremely dedicated and versatile teachers
under the torch bearer Prof. M. Debendra Rao, the intake student
strength went up to 32 from the session 1989-90. The journey
which began slowly and of course steadily in the year 1962-63
has been presently turned into a gigantic leap to earn the rare
distinction of being the only college with an intake capacity of
80 students in physics hons. More ever, students after their B.
Sc hons. are excelling farther by joining H. E, research
institution/ corporate Sectors, puuting them best and
ultimately giving glory to this Department.Rao,
