•SSTC is an place where we celebrate youth and exuberance and attempt to instil in students a sense of social responsibility, human values and concern for environment. We not only strive to train the students to become excellent scientists, technologists, thinkers and leaders of the society, but also help them to mould themselves into better human beings.

DEPARTMENT OF Applied PhysicsContact Department

The Department of Applied Physics has been providing quality teaching and expert advice. Our academic and technical staff members are well equipped with the best qualifications and experience to meet the University's expectations. The Department always strives to stay abreast of technology growth and development and recognizes the fact that learning is a multifaceted continuous process. The Department has excellent laboratory with advanced facilities. All staff members are highly committed and they work together to achieve our common goal: The development of students' minds and skills as well as providing a basis for their personal, social and cognitive development.

Our Objectives

Short Term Goal

  • Developing new methodology of teaching.
  • Creation of practical skills and knowledge related environment around students and to give problem –oriented assignment and providing basic facilities and guidance.
  • Maintenance of the laboratory equipments, stock of chemicals to meet the requirements of the students.
  • Development of some projects in the department which may be useful for the students of 1st year at their level of skill and working.

Long Term Goals

  • To develop critical & analytical abilities.
  • To motivate the students for extra curricular activities.
  • To develop the ability to relate & use technical knowledge in real life situations.
  • More Interaction/Collaboration with the scientists and institutions of national and international repute.
