The Department of Physical Education was formed in the year 2003 with one Physical Education Instructor. In August 2007, Mr. Krishnakumar S., the current Head of the Department (HoD) took charge of the Department.

The department coordinates the sports activities of all schools at the Amritapuri Campus i.e., School of Arts & Science, School of Ayurveda, School of Biotechnology and School of Engineering.

The Department regularly organizes various intramural competitions and annual athletic meets. Various Inter Campus Tournaments including Table Tennis, Badminton (Shuttle), Volleyball, Football, etc. are also organized year-round.

Here at Amrita, we endorse the fact that physical well being of a student is concomitant to his or her performance in academics and endow students with opportunities to develop a physically active life style and essential values like cooperation, team work and sportsmanship. Physical education nurtures and inculcates in students the desire and commitment to continue to enjoy, improve and achieve in line with their own personal capacities throughout their lifetime.
