About The Department

Intake of the Department = 120

The department of Physics, one of the major departments of Basic Sciences was started in the year 2011 with the inception of the Engineering College, Dayananda Sagar Academy of Technology & Management. The Department has excelled in the teaching learning methodology and has a good academic track record. The learning experience here is wholesome tailored to suit needs of the industry and independent career development.

Physics Department curriculum is affiliated to Visvesvaray Technological University (VTU), Belgaum, and Karnataka comprises of General, Basic Science, Engineering Science and Technical Arts, and Professional Subjects. The program curriculum is in compliance with AICTE norms. The department of Physics of DSATM has a vision of imbibing the basic knowledge of Physics in the minds of students. Basic science is the route of all engineering subjects without which understanding of engineering subjects is not possible.

The department has highly qualified, trained and dedicated teachers who are responsible for the overall academic growth of the students.


To integrate the components of Basic Sciences and Engineering for grooming the students to become globally recognized professionals, strive hard to apply knowledge of Basic Sciences beyond the curriculum and demonstrate thinking across all disciplines.

About The Course :

Engineering physics is to make students learn and understand basic concepts and principles of physics to analyze practical engineering problems and apply its solutions effectively and meaningfully. To understand building up of models, design issues, practical oriented skills and problem solving challenges are the great task of the course. To know about shock waves and practical applications is the prime motto to introduce new technology at the initial stage of Engineering.
