The Department of Science and Humanities is the foundation of Engineering programmes. The Department of Science and Humanities initiates and prepares the students to achieving critical thinking, ability to innovate, work in multicultural environments and adapt to professional courses. In this era of STEM, Science and Mathematics have a major role to play in Engineering Education. Courses such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English taught by the Department of Science and Humanities during the first year, facilitate better understanding of the courses of their specialization. The Science and Humanities courses impart essential skills like effective communication, leadership skills and team spirit in the first year of Engineering.
The department has highly qualified and experienced faculty members with wide-ranging research experience and also focuses the holistic development of students.
The department has got excellent LABORATORY facilities for various courses like English, Physics and Chemistry which enable students to engage in analysing and inferring the role of Science and Humanities in Engineering applications.
Language Laboratory is an important Laboratory managed by English faculty and it sharpens the writing, speaking, reading and pronunciation skills of students which are very much required in understanding various technical terms and equips them for placement. This state-of-the-art laboratory facilitates students to explore the realm of English, especially for their professional growth. Students are encouraged to practice listening skills, enrich vocabulary, develop communication skills through group discussion and their reading skills are enhanced through ample practice. In addition, it creates a pleasing and joyful learning environment.
The Physics Laboratory is equipped with experimental set-ups that support theory course in physics and enhances the students’ practical knowledge on Engineering Physics. This laboratory gives hands-on training in latest physics concepts and applications.
The Chemistry Laboratory is a well-established Laboratory with state-of-the-art instruments that help in imparting important laboratory techniques used in engineering applications. The experiments are designed to back up the theoretical concepts taught in the theory class.
Basic training is given to students to design resumes, practice interview skills, group discussion and presentation skills. Students are trained to speak with clarity and confidence.
The Management encourages the faculty members to attend Conferences/Seminars/Workshops & FDPs in order to keep the faculty updated on the skills and knowledge to transfer it to students and society at large.
Dr.Kala Chandrasekaran, Associate Professor of English initiated and has been hosting School of Engineering’s e-Newsletter every semester in the Institution’s website. Seventeen issues have been hosted so far. She guides the student editors to resource content, organize materials, design layout and present them in digital format.
The dept offers a bouquet of facilities to ensure the holistic development of students. Diverse platforms are provided to students to exhibit and hone their innate talents and enrich their knowledge going beyond the syllabus and curriculum in addition to the latest, cutting edge technology fields.
