About the Department : The Department of Physics at IIT Roorkee from its modest beginning in 1960 has now grown in to an active center of quality teaching and research. Today it stands as one of the leading departments in the country, well known for its excellence in teaching and research. The Department runs five-year integrated M.Sc. (Physics), two year M.Sc. (Physics) and M. Tech. (Solid State Electronic Materials) programs apart from catering the teaching of core Physics courses to undergraduate engineering students. The faculty of the Department are actively engaged in different areas of research viz. Atmospheric and Space Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Nuclear Physics, Optics and Theoretical High Energy Physics. The Department organizes national and international conferences from time to time. The research activity in the department is well recognized by CSIR, AICTE, DST and ISRO and a number of research projects funded by these agencies are always in progress in the department.

It was renamed as the Thomason College of Civil Engineering in 1854. The College laid the foundation of modem engineering education and the use of Civil Engineering practices in the infrastructure development of the country. The irrigation infrastructure in the form of dams and canals, roads and highways, railway, bridges, etc. in the country, all have been the outcome of the engineering education imparted in this, the only
engineering institution in the country, at that point of time. It got elevated as the first technical University of the country in 1948 through the University of Roorkee Act, 1947 passed by the United Provinces Legislature. University of Roorkee also became the first institution in the country to offer postgraduate programs engineering and technology in 1955. On September 21,2001, the University was converted into an IIT by the Government of India through an Act of Parliament and recognized as an Institution of National importance. Roorkee is the entry point of Uttarakhand state. It is on the way to Mussoorie and Haridwar from Delhi. IIT Roorkee has a beautiful green campus. Various sports facilities including Billiards, Swimming, Hockey, Football, and Yoga are available in the Campus. The Institute provides 100% accommodation to faculty members. A good C.B.S.E. School is available in the Campus which provides admission to the children of newly joining faculty members throughout the year.
