The Department of Physics, Central University of Rajasthan was established in 2011. The Department offers three postgraduate courses: 5 years integrated M.Sc. Physics, 2 years M.Sc. Physics and 3 years integrated M.Sc. B.Ed. Physics. In addition, the PhD degree program is also introduced from the year 2014. The Department has excellent state-of-art laboratories for the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching as well as for research. The Department follows the best teaching practices in the core area of Physics with a motto of learner-centric teaching and gives exposure to the students about the latest research through summer internship/project and a semester-long research project.

The Department provides deep physical insight and the ability to realize such insights in a creative way through a wide-ranging education in both experimental and theoretical subjects. The Department has an excellent team of competent faculty involved in cutting-edge research and teaching to develop the careers of the next generation of physicists. Main research areas are condensed matter physics, lasers and optics and non-linear dynamics. The research is also supported by various national and international funding agencies with approximately Rs.3 crore extramural research funding. The Department has achieved great success by producing outstanding undergraduate and master students who are employed in world-class institutes like BARC, PRL and other academic institutes and also cleared national level examinations like NET-JRF, GATE and JEST.
