Vision & Mission

The Department of Physics occupies a spectacular role in the history of MSM College since the inception of the institution in 1964 as a junior college. In the year 1968, the Department was upgraded with Degree Course in Mathematics with Physics as one of the subsidiaries. In the year 1979, the Department of Physics started offering BSC Degree in Physics with sanctioned student strength of 32. Now the department offers Complementary Courses to Degree programmes in Chemistry and Statistics. PG programme was started in the year 1995 with a sanctioned strength of 13. The Department offers Value Added Courses which are of great contemporary relevance.

The department always keeps good academic excellence and secures good position in result analysis.

Our aim is to provide inexpensive, high-quality education to equip students with knowledge and skills in their chosen field; to instill values and to identify latent talents, and to provide them with opportunities to reach their maximum potential, thereby moulding them into future leaders, entrepreneurs, and, above all, good human beings.

Programmes Offered

  • BSc in Physics
  • MSc in Physics
  • Certificate Course in laptop maintenance.

The Department

The Department of Physics started offering BSc program in 1979 and MSc program in 1995. In spite of the difficulties in the beginning, our former Heads of the Department with the whole hearted co-operation of the management materialized the tremendous task of providing laboratory and library facilities to the UG and PG courses in time.

We are thankful to our former Heads of the Department, Prof. Premeela(1964-1980), Prof. M. Abdul Jabbar(1980-2000), Prof. B. Fatima(2000-2001) Prof. Abdul Rabbu (2001-2007), Prof. S. K. Govindan Kutty Karnavar(2007-2010), Prof. Sherly Kutty P Mathew (2010-2012) and Dr. S. Jayakumar(2012-2015), Dr S.Bhadrakumari (2015-2021, now Principal).  Their devotion and hardwork helped to achieve the present position, and their legacy is continued by their successors.  Dr Anilkumar K M.(2021-) is the current H.O.D.of the Department.

It is worth mentioning that the percentage of results in the university examinations every year has been high with a good number of distinctions. Our PG students secured third rank in 1998, Second rank in 1999, First rank in 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2016. All these achievements are the result of the team work of a group of dedicated faculties and laboratory staff.
