Teachers constantly upgrade themselves by attending orientation & refreshers courses, workshops, seminars, symposia, conferences etc.
Every year 1-2 students from the department are selected at national level for Advance Diploma in radiotherapy at Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai. Department also encourages and guide the students to appear for various competitive examinations. In addition to teaching field, students are placed in industries, IT sector, research institutes, civil & defense services & medical fields, etc.
Department has Recognized Research Center of SP Pune University, Pune since 2014. Dr. P. M. Dighe & Dr. N. D. Sali are recognized research guides. At present four students are pursuing Ph.D. Imperative areas of research are renewable energy- Solar Energy, Nuclear Physics, Nanotechnology & thin films.
Department has successfully completed three minor research projects funded by BCUD Savitribai Phule Pune University & UGC, New Delhi while one minor project is ongoing. Faculty members have published 30 papers in national/international journals & written 9 books in last five years.
As a social commitment, teachers and students of the department visit nearby villages and schools to popularize & promote use of renewable energy sources, especially Solar Energy. During the visits, awareness is created about the pollution & climate change, efficient use of electrical home appliances & renewable energy utilizing devices .With the help of demonstrations, people are trained in using solar energy utilizing devices such as solar cooker, solar drier, solar lantern and solar water heaters. This is one of the unique social activities of our department carried out since last 15-20 years. Continuous & disciplined efforts of the faculty have resulted into creative & responsible citizen to the society.
