(Physics) and Ph.D. (Physics) from Agra University and Kurukshetra University, respectively. His fields of interest are Nano-/micro Technology, Electronics, Instrumentation, Experimental Nuclear Physics/Engineering, General Physics, Solid State Physics, and Remote Sensing.
Presently, he is working as a Professor and Asso. Dean Research and Development at Manav Rachna International University (MRIU), Sector- 43, Faridabad, Haryana, India. Prof. S. K. Chakarvarti also served as a Dean Academic, Chairman and Professor, at Physics Department, National Institute of Technology (Institution of National Importance), Kurukshetra, Haryana, India.
INNOVATIONS/CONTRIBUTIONS IN TEACHING:
In the pursuit of teaching and learning, the visual and audio strategies and displays have a potent role to play in the efficient, purposeful and accomplished dissemination of knowledge. Keeping this in mind that seeing is more powerful than hearing; Prof. Chakarvarti had developed many Lecture-Demonstration set-ups for use in class and laboratory as well. This change in otherwise routine teaching pursuit strategies has a remarkable effect on the students as assessed from the feedback received.
The demonstrations include working models/displays and experimental setups illustrating the basic principles of Electromagnetic Induction phenomenon, Optics and associated aspects, electronic modules (logic combination gates), teaching aids besides some demonstrations simulating the nuclear scattering phenomenon etc. Prof. S. K. Chakarvarti, has organized various stage shows at different colleges and national conferences, some of them are mentioned below:
(H.P.University,Shimla; Guru Nanak Dev University,Amritsar(IAPT National Conference);Panjab University,Chandigarh; Govt College for Girls,Chandigarh; Panjab College of Engineering, Lalru,Panjab; Govt College, Bhatinda; Govt College, Ludhiana;MLN College, Yamuna Nagar;Khalsa College, Yamuna Nagar; DAV College for Women,Yamuna Nagar;IB College, Panipat; Haryana College of Engg and Technology, Kaithal;Kurukshetra Science and Panorama Centre, Kurukshetra; KLM Dav College for Women, Faridabad; GGGSD College,Palwal; Govt PG College,Karnal; DAV College for Women, Karnal ; MVN College of Engineering,Palwal, Aggarwal College, Ballabgarh etc.)
