Department of Physics and Electronics of Rajdhani College was first established as Physics Department under the guidance of the principal Dr. Dogra. Initially it was started in Kirti Nagar with Physics (H) course. Later on, other courses like B.Sc. General Physical Science was also introduced. In 1987 Electronics (H) as well as Electronics General were also introduced. Now following courses are running under it---- B.Sc. (H) Physics, B.Sc. (H) Electronics, B.Sc. Physical Science, B.Sc. Applied Physical Science, Electronics.
The department comprises of a highly qualified faculty (mostly with PhDs) among which 15 are permanent and 17 are adhocs. Most of the faculty teachers are involved in research work. Faculty is always available to the students for guiding and helping them with their problems.
Department has 5 well equipped and maintained labs with all the practical setup relevant to DU syllabus. Labs are equipped with latest equipments like DSO, Spectrometre, Laser experiments etc. Every year purchases are done to upgrade the labs with latest equipments. Department also have 10 Lab attendents who are very hardworking and diligent to maintain these labs.
Physics(H) and Electronics (H) courses of DU are very well developed and concept based course with a proper mathematical back ground . The courses are every year upgraded to include recent developments.
Students pursuing Phy(H) and Electronics (H) courses after completion of B.Sc can do postgraduation in Physics and Electronics/ Master in Computer Applications / Various M.Tech. courses like Optoeletronics etc. from IITs , IIsc Bangalore, IUCA Pune etc.
TechHertz16 (Technical Fest)
TechHertz16 was a two-day Inter-College technical fest organized by the Department of Physics and Electronics, Rajdhani College, University of Delhi, on 1st and 2nd March, 2016. With the theme of Giving Life to Fiction, it hosted a plethora of events tending to the technical tastes of one and all. The first day began with the Inaugural Ceremony presided over by Professor D. V. Gadre, a renowned personality in the field of Embedded Systems and Robotics from NSIT, New Delhi and chaired by our former Principal and Mentor Dr. Sanjay Malhotra. The Inaugural Ceremony was followed by the conduction of various competitions. The Robotics Competitions comprised of Magneto, Block Warrior and Maze Runner. The first two had the choice of using either one’s own robot or the robot provided by the college. The first one led to the earning of more credits. Magneto gave a modern touch to the infamous video game, “pin ball”. A real pin ball arena, identical to the one found in the video game was provided and the contestants had to manoeuvre the robot in a way so as to keep the ball inside the arena for the maximum amount of time. Block Warrior exploited the concept of using robots in place of manual labour. The participants had to control a wired/wireless robot to lift and displace blocks that lied on its track. Maze Runner was just the application of a more sophisticated version of the age old line following robot. The robot here had to find its way out of a labyrinth in the minimum possible time.
The non-technical events, namely Dexter, Battle Code, Circuit Maestro Poster Design were conducted simultaneously. Dexter was a paper presentation competition where the participants had to present a thesis on any conventional science topic. Battle Code, as is evident from the name, was a coding event where the contestants had to put real life problems in terms of computer algorithms and find its best solution. Circuit Maestro tested the circuitry skills of the contesting teams. Poster Designing judged the creativity and the thoughts of the students on the theme, Digital India.
The fest, even though being a technical one, had not compromised on the fun factor. There were also events like NFS Most Wanted (Video game contest), Treasure Hunt and Videography Contest.
Treasure Hunt turned out to be one of the main attractions of the fest drawing a large number of students. The second day of this technical extravaganza was reserved for lectures and workshops. It started with a workshop on MatLab conducted by CETPA. The registration for this was done for free of cost and it saw the participation of an appreciable number of enthusiastic students. It was followed by Dr. Sanjay Malik Memorial Lecture by the eminent physicist, Dr. N. Vijayan on The Past Accomplishments and Future of Physics. Family of Dr. Sanjay Malik was kind enough to accept the invitation to grace to occasion. The prize distribution ceremony was held next which was then followed by the concluding speech marking the end of the two-day Technological Festival.
