ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The physics department was established a way back in the year 1960. It is the second large department in college with 08 sanctioned teachers. However, presently only 02 faculty members along with the support of 05 Ad-hoc Teachers and 10 Contributory Teachers, are catering the students of Under Graduate (B.Sc. Programme -Semester Pattern) and Post Graduate (M.Sc. Physics – Semester Pattern). In the year 2011-12, the college commenced M.Sc. Physics course while in the year 2014-15 the department was recognized as Research Center to register research students leading to Ph.D. degree affiliated to RTM Nagpur University. The department is running UGC Sponsored (worth Rs 10 Lacs) add-on course under title Career Oriented Course - Mathematical Modeling Using Maple. In the year 2008-09 University Grants Commission, New Delhi bestowed the department with the Innovative Programme (worth Rs 50 Lacs) – Post Graduate Diploma in Nano-Science and Nano-Technology which inducts students having completed post-graduation in Physical Science or graduation in Engineering. In the year 2004 the department was identified as a beneficiary department under the University Grants Commission’s most coveted programme College with Potential for Excellence (worth Rs 60 Lacs). The faculty members are active in research and it is recognized by UGC in the form that TWO Major Research Projects and THREE Minor Research Projects (worth Rs 25 Lacs) have been awarded to them and are successfully completed.

The department has a state-of-the-art laboratory developed for the undergraduate, postgraduate programme. Sophisticated laboratory-developed with the financial aid provided by University Grants Commission, New Delhi under various schemes viz; (i) College with Potential for Excellence, (ii) INNOVATIVE PROGRAMME, (iii) Career Oriented Course and (iv) Major/Minor Research Projects.

Supporting Add on Career Oriented Course

From the year 2013-14, the Department started UGC sponsored Career Oriented Course (CoC) - Mathematical Modeling using MAPLE. Since then 5 years have passed and about 150 students have qualified various levels of this Certificate/Diploma course.

Since the academic session 2018-19, we plan to reach to maximum students through this CoC in the form of Flipped e-Classroom. We have uploaded SIX Video Lectures on Maple on YouTube which the students should listen to before reporting to the Maple Laboratory for hands-on experience. Some PDF worksheets on Maple are also made available on Google Drive.

Aluminums Milind Rundhe at Shivaji Science College, NAGPUR

Aug 5, 2019: Prof. Milind Rundhe from Mumbai University interacted with students of M.Sc and B.Sc, all teaching faculty members to shear his experiences about the fabrication of Cyclotron at IIT Chennai. He is alumni (1994 batch) of the college and narrated his experience of growth through Shivaji Science College Nagpur.  He remembered ex-professor of the institute with regards to whom he owes his success that includes; Prof R G Kale, Prof M.T Dharmadhikri, Prof S W Gawande, Prof B R Nikade. He urged the student to focus on Mathematics subject as it forms the foundation. He also appreciated the subject combinations that are being catered here help grow students in research.

Dr.S.W. Anwane introduced the guest as the alumni member of Shri Shivaji Science College and appealed him to interact with the student and to share his experience with them. Coming to his work in IIT Chennai he told about how he fabricated cyclotron which was funded by DST worth Rs 2 Crore. He narrated the students that the fabrication work was done with the help of a group of undergraduate students. In his discretion, he sheared his experiences in topics like electromagnetism, permanent magnets, and temporary magnets used in the fabrication of cyclotron. He told stimulation of work was the key to his success in fabricating the device. He acquainted the student with new topics “invisibility” and “metamaterials” which can be achieved by manipulating the equation and appealed to facilitate students for their project at Mumbai University.

Dr S W Anwane, Associate Professor and Head introduced the speaker while Dr S S Darokar proposed the vote of thanks. Prof C. Ruchir Kumar, Prof Pratiksha Dixit, Prof Shahin Sayyed, Prof Gaurav Kale, Prof Prof Shweta Sharma, Prof Sarita Narkhade attended the function.

Certificates Distribution

Shri Shivaji Science College, NAGPUR is running a University Grants Commission Sponsored Career Oriented Course (CoC) Mathematical Modeling using Maple for students undergoing B Sc program. In the 6th batch, 17 students qualified this DIPLOMA course and 27 students qualified CERTIFICATE course during the academic year 2018-19 were conferred with Certificates on the 73rd Independence day at the hands of Principal Dr M P Dhore. It is worth to mention that students are keen on learning a new approach on the theme-line of the University Grants Commission through the add-on Course in Mathematical Modeling Using Maple. Principal Dr M P Dhore appreciated students for their extra-curricular interest and congratulated them of their achievements and appreciated efforts of the faculty of the Department of Physics. In academic session 2019-20, we plan to reach to maximum students for this Career Oriented Course (CoC) in the form of MAPLE Flipped Classroom. We have uploaded Lectures for Career Oriented Course on YouTube which the students can view before reporting Maple Laboratory for hands-on experience. During college working hours this Lab will remain open for students.
