School of Science and Humanities was established in the year 1988. It comprises the basic knowledge in Physics , Chemistry Mathematics, English and Visual Communication. Over the years, the School of Science and Humanities has seen its expansion not only in academics but also in research. The School has around 150 dedicated faculty members.
DST-FIST Sponsored Department of Physics is one among the established departments since the inception of the institution. The study of Physics discovers the problems of nature through the knowledge of properties of matter. In Physics laboratory, adequate equipment and instruments are available. The Department is aiming to establish facilities for specialized areas of research with assistance of funding agencies.
The study of Chemistry is imperative in all manufacturing processes where the transformation of one form of material into another is indispensable. Equitably important is the application of Environmental Chemistry and Engineering, to protect the globe from pollution. Mathematics is the basis for all branches of Science, Engineering and Technology. Any complicated ideas can be logically expressed by equations and formulae. English language is pervasive and spoken throughout the world. It is the language for all walks of life. The Department of English is fully equipped with a good language laboratory and other infrastructure to impart the language skills effectively. In recent years the various programs like Itask, Science club, my Saturday University etc., have been initiated keeping in mind the academic and social welfare of the students. A famous proverb says that, a scientist is one who “seeks to understand what is’ and an engineer is one who ‘seeks to create what never was”.It has become obvious therefore, the seamless combination and assimilation of science and engineering will yield new interdisciplinary subjects. Research work could be introduced even at the under graduate levels to build a new generation of professionals and researchers.
The Department of English actively involves in various research works in the area of English Language and Literature. Apart from academics, the Department imparts personality development, soft skills and placement training to students at the tertiary level. The Department has organised conferences at national and international levels besides conducting workshops and symposiums every year. The Department offers B.A., M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D. programs in ELT and English Literature. It has a Language Lab, with updated Software to enhance communication skill of the learners.
