About Department

A vibrant group of young and seniorfaculty who are well trained on student centric methods of teaching-learning.Recognising the need for a strong foundation in Maths and Sciences for a better understanding of engineering, the dept. teaches the basic sciences with a particular emphasis on engineering applications. The staff adopt innovative teaching methods for developing concepts that find frequent applications in pursuit of mastering engineering core knowledge and specialisations. The concepts are further strengthened in laboratory courses. Spacious classrooms provide the most conductive environment for dynamic and focused discussions, cutting edge learning tools.

In addition to their excellent teaching, faculty members are actively involved in molding the minds of young engineers. Systematically trained to act as philosophers, guides and friends to support students all aspects with care and concern.

A good number of faculty are Ph.D. & M.Phil. holders and actively involved in high level research. The faculty have authored books and published papers. The department is engaged in the development of a strategic plan for continuing faculty growth by organizing various faculty development programs, orientation programmes & Effectiveness Programmes for students.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS: Keeping in their pre-employment needs and career requirements the department is working hard for enhancing student's communications skills and soft skills along with interpersonal skills.
