About Science and Humanities
The Department of Science and Humanities was founded in 2008-2009 and follows the curriculum of Anna University, Chennai. It inculcates basic knowledge in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English which is the foundation of Engineering education. In our Department the ethos of science and technology prevails, as it is believed that Engineering and Science are, by their very nature, humanistic and socially derived enterprises. The Department has 33 dedicated faculty members.
English language is pervasive and spoken throughout the world. It is the language for all walks of life. A good command and communication in English are essential in the modern world to wield not only respect but in all business transactions. The Department of English is fully equipped with erudite faculty, a good language laboratory and other infrastructure to impart the language skills effectively.
Mathematics, the queen of sciences is the basis for all branches of Science, Engineering and Technology. Any complex ideas can be logically expressed by equations and formulae. Mathematics itself is a language through which difficult problems can be addressed.
The study of Physics uncovers the mysteries of nature through the knowledge of properties of matter. In the Physics laboratory adequate equipment and instruments are available for performing all types of experiments involving light and other forms of energy.
The study of Chemistry is crucial in all manufacturing processes where the transformation of one form of material into another. Equally important is the study of Environmental Chemistry and Engineering, to save the globe from pollutions.
Theodore Von Karman remarked 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 merger and integration of science and engineering will yield new inter disciplinary subjects. Research work could be introduced even at the under graduate levels to build a new generation of professionals and researchers.
Vision and Mission of the Department
To establish a centre of excellence in basic sciences such as Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry that provide foundation for engineering studies and also in communication skills that helps students to express themselves effectively and to create proficient engineers who can be globally challenged in engineering fundamentals – experimental, analytical, computational and designing abilities.
Keeping the core objectives to create academic excellence in fundamental sciences, the Department of Science and Humanities aims to encourage advanced teaching learning process and quality research at individual, department and institutional level. It also endeavours to build quality based knowledge and human resource capacity.
