DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE AND HUMANITIES
Science and Humanities department is combination of Maths, Physics, Chemistry and English.
Department of Mathematics provide strong Mathematical background to Engineering Graduates to cope up with the needs of emerging technology at National and International levels and undertake significant research projects individually and in collaboration with other Departments / Institutions / Industries.
Department of Physics is involved in active research in almost all frontier areas of Physics. The department has well equipped laboratories through which creative ideas are implanted in the minds of the first year students of B.E./B.Tech. programme of six branches, viz., CIVIL, CSE,EEE,ECE,MECH & IT. Also, we are committed to train new generations of researchers and leaders, to make new partnerships with government and industry and to apply the tools of physics to new problems to benefit the society.
Department of Chemistryoffers theory as well as practical courses covering
basic concepts and experiments useful to engineering. The faculty members are also involved in various developmental activities of the institution in different
capacities. The department provides very good teaching programmes using the modern teaching aids and equipments. The department also motivates for good link with
industrial sponsored research works. The department also organizes invited lectures beneficial to the students.
Department of English offers two theory papers (Communicative English and Technical English) in the first two semesters and three practical papers in the subsequent three semesters. We use strategies such as CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning), MALL (Mobile-Assisted Language Learning), Flipped Learning module that possess a potential solution to language learning barriers in terms of time and place and thereby giving learner autonomy and allow the students the space for learning with interest.The department has begun to provide online support to the students through tailor-made MOOCs. There are four teaching staff members and a technical staff in the department.
The Physics Laboratory for the first year B.E./B.Tech.students is well equipped to do the experiments for Physics practical classes. Also, a research laboratory were established from DST-SERB project and young motivated research fellows are invloved in active research.
Our department has well equipped chemistry laboratory. The BE/B Tech students utilize it for chemistry laboratory practicals in the first year.
In addition, the final year students carry out the chemistry based projects in our laboratory. Research scholars and project fellows/assistants conduct
their research works in the chemistry laboratory. The department also has the instrumental facilities like cyclic voltammetry, pH-meter, Flame Photometer,
Potentiometer, Conductivity meter, Hot air oven and spectrophotometer.
The laboratory is spacious with fume hood to conduct noxious reactions.
The Communication Laboratory is well equipped and strengthened with updated versions of PCs to produce world class professionals with adequate communication skills and soft skills.
- The department is actively engaged in various fields of research such as polymer materials, electrochemistry, corrosion, composite materials, nanomaterials, catalysis and inorganic complexes for medicinal applications. The department is also having collaborative research with various reputed institutions/ research laboratories. The department is helping the final year students to do their project works related to chemistry.
- All the faculty members of the Department are dedicated in publishing research papers in reputed national & international journals.
- The faculty members have been awarded with funded projects from various funding agencies Viz CSIR, DST-SERB, BMTPC, TNSCST. The faculty members are also exploring and updating their research by presenting paper in various conferences, workshops and seminars. They also deliver invited lectures about their research areas as well as the thrust areas of research. Several Ph.D. scholars are pursuing research in the department. The staff members of the department have produced many Ph.D. scholars.
Communication skill is an art that gets refined with constant practice and solemn efforts. In order to provide the platform for enriching the communication skills of the students, the department of English has established an English Club under its aegis. The club often conducts Group Discussion, Debate, Elocution, Turn coat to brush up their language skills.Through this club, a number of competitions are conducted and prizes are awarded to the winners. It has organized various guest lectures by eminent personalities. Mr. Shankar, Deputy Manager, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Nasik visited our campus at regular intervals and trained our students in the field of soft skills and also on technical topics as Basic Aircraft and how and aircraft flies,GPS and INS Navigation Systems,and Aircraft Flight Data Recorder. Dr. K. Balasubramaniam, Retired Professor of English, M S University Tirunelveli delivered a lecture on "Empowering Communication Skills".
Quality Improvement Cell
Quality Improvement Cell has been established in our campus as per the direction of Commissioner of Technical Education and Director/Centre for Faculty Development Anna University,Chennai to promote self-learning among the students and there by exposing them to e-resources. The cell encourages and motivates the students to learn beyond the syllabus. It also aims to improve the teaching skills and knowledge of the teachers. It has a digital library with numerouseducational resources CDs consist of NPTEL videos by IIT, spoken tutorial by IIT Bombay and Edusat classes by CFD. In order to inculcate the reading habits of the students, the cell has purchased a lot of story books including comics, novels, and short stories.
