The Department of Physics and Material Science was established on 22nd June, 2019. Which has been inaugurated by Shri Yogi Adiyanath Ji Maharaj, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. Previously, it has been the constituent part of Department of Applied Sciences. The erstwhile Madan Mohan Malaviya Engineering College, Gorakhpur, which was started in 1962, by the then Government of Uttar Pradesh to foster technical education, has been upgraded as Madan Mohan Malaviya University of Technology, Gorakhpur on 1st Dec. 2013 by the UP-Government Act (22). The department of Physics and Material Science has been founded for imparting high quality education through the programs; B. Tech in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Information Technology, Mechanical Engineering and M.Sc. in Physics with specialization in electronics.

The main objective of the department is to disseminate knowledge in the area of Physics and Material Science, in order to promote the implementation of practical aspects related to it and to build a solid foundation of physics for science and engineering graduates. The department offers Ph. D. degree in Physics, with an objective to produce trained and skilled human resources; who can take the challenges to cater the need of the society. The research is focused to thrust areas as: Con­densed Matter Physics, Solar Energy Physics, Thin Films, Opto-electronic Materials and Devices, Fiber Optic Sensors, Solar Cell, Energy Storage, Applications of Nanomaterial, Micro & Nano-fluids, Molecular Simulation etc.

The Department is also committed, to promote teaching and research, in thrust and emerging areas of Physics. It encourages for academic interaction of students and faculty members for collaboration at national and international levels. Department has started M.Sc. program in Physics with specialization in electronics from the session 2018-19. The Department has well equipped laboratories for under graduate, post graduate as well as Ph.D. students. Well-educated, talented and dedicated faculty members are consistently engaged to meet the objective of the department.
