The department of Physics began its voyage in the year 2001. This department offers B.Sc general course in Physics of three years duration as per Vidyasagar University rules. This department has a well-equipped laboratory to conduct Physics lab classes.
At present the department has one Full-time permanent faculty and one guest faculty. Two more faculties will be recruited within June, 2017. The college has arranged special lectures by eminent retired and full time faculties from neighboring colleges. The full faculty list will be updated in our college within 1st week of July.
The department has procured lab set ups and books according to latest Physics Honours syllabus. The department is equipped with some advance experimental set ups to carry out project work for undergraduate students. The department has projector facility to conduct video and powerpoint lectures. Virtual Classroom and internet facility is available. Sufficient e-books according to Physics Honours syllabus are available. Hijli College will act as local chapter to conduct NPTEL online courses in Physics (as well as other subjects) from IIT KGP. By participating in these courses students will earn certificate from IIT KGP which will definitely boost their career. The college authority is undergoing official formalities for developing the infrastructure of this department as well as the whole college from MP lad fund, DPI fund, College fund, and fund from local bodies
