Department profile

Basic Sciences and Humanities are fundamental to all engineering and technology studies. The Department of Basic Science and Humanities was established in July 2013. Since then it has been is instrumental in building students’ knowledge base in the field of science and humanities while preparing them for their undergraduate examinations under Mahatma Gandhi University and APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University. It helps students to develop a new outlook towards technology in tune with the social, economic and political advancements in the present day society.

The Department of Basic Science and Humanities is headed by Dr.Sunny Kuriakose and it comprises qualified faculty members from the disciplines of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Management, English,Training and Development.This includes 3 PhD holders and 12 Postgraduates with 4 of them pursuing their doctoral degrees.The department also provides Physics, Chemistry and Language lab facilities for the students with a lab staff for the Physics lab.

Vision

To provide a concrete foundation in Basic Sciences and Humanities that enables the student to evolve as a technically adept and socially responsible professional.

Mission

Instill requisite knowledge in science and enhance problem solving skills thereby enabling the students to analyze simple and complex engineering problems. Provide opportunities and support for the holistic development of students which shall empower them as competent engineers. Pursue research activities by the faculty and support students in their interdisciplinary projects or programmes.

Message from the HoD

The Department of Basic Science &Humanities consisting of 15 experienced and competent members is an integral part of the institution. The HODdepartment facilitates ample exposure and experience in disciplines such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English, Economics, Training and Development , Physical Education, Counseling also falls under the purview of the department. In the undergraduate level engineering programme, the department offers courses in Mathematics up to the fourth semester; Engineering Physics, Engineering Chemistry, English & Communication Skills in the first & second semesters; Business Economics and Life Skills in the third & fourth semesters; and Management courses in the fifth and sixth semesters. A well-equipped Multi-media Language Lab maintained by the department helps students to sharpen their linguistic skills. A support system is facilitated to foster the soft skills of the students through Communication Skills and Life Skills classes to achieve the self-development of students in their professional and social life. The department aims at the holistic development of students through counseling sessions, sports, NSS activities, Personality development program and a host of other activities.

Individual Disciplines under the Department

PHYSICS A good knowledge of physics is necessary for engineering students to get a thorough grounding in applied physics. It’s objective in engineering education is to equip students to apply their knowledge of physical sciences for the design and analysis of engineering solutions.

CHEMISTRY The objective of this discipline is to teach students about the physio-chemical processes and the chemical nature of materials, used in engineering and technology. An in depth understanding of Chemistry is essential to develop a practical solution to an engineering problem.

MATHEMATICS Mathematical ability is one of the qualities that an engineer should have. Mathematics is a tool of an engineers which can be used to model,analyse and solve engineering problems. Its objective in engineering education is to introduce the students to a more practical world of applied mathematics.

HUMANITIES Humanities as a discipline plays an inevitable role in building better engineers. The university has given importance to teaching of economics, management studies and life skills which is aims at the overall growth of a student. Therefore the objective of humanities is to encourage students to gain knowledge ans skills essential for understanding the wold around them.

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT A students needs continuous training and development to ensure continuous growth throughout their student life and beyond. The training and development team at the college provides opportunity for students to sharpen the soft skills necessary for their future. For this, the team designs customized courses for students after identifying their training needs. It also provides students with training in Business English Certification (BEC) program assessed by the Cambridge English Assessment.
