Department of Physics was established in the year 1935 as a part of Lingraj College. In 1944, the degree course in science was inaugurated by the Nobel Laureate Sir C.V.Raman. Karnatak University PG course in Physics was introduced in 1948 and was continued upto 1957 in our department. In the year 1951 foundation stone of Physics Department was laid by Shri Jayachamarajendra Wadeyar. In 1958 the science wing was bifurcated from Lingraj college as a full pledged science institute and called Raja Lakhamgouda Science Institute.

Dr. G.S.Paramashivayya and Prof. G.D.Somannavar from physics department worked as principal of the college and devoted themselves for the glory of the institute. Prof. G.D.Somannavar also had the privilage of working as Secretary of KLE Society, Belagavi.

Bawache had the privilage of working as Head of the department. Presently Prof. R. R. Wadagavi is working as the Head of the department.

Looking into the needs of the stakeholders, our department introduced a new subject Electronics in the year 1988. PG Course in Physics (Solid State Physics) was introduced during the academic year 2010-11. A new combination with Electronics, Mathematics and Computer Science was introduced in the year 2013-14. Three certificate courses Electrical Engineering, Geo-Physics and Astro - Physics were introduced in the year 2013-14, 14-15 and 15–16 respectively. One more new combination Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science was introduced in the year 2017-18. Two new certificate courses Digital system Design using Verilog and Electronic Equipments and their Maintenance were introduced in the year 2017-18 and 2018-19 respectively.
