Department of Basic Science and Humanities plays a vital role in an engineering college catering to the teaching of Basic Science, English and Humanities courses for engineering students of all branches. The Department comprises five disciplines namely, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English and Humanities. As an integral part of the institute, the prime focus of department is to provide a conceptual base in Basic Sciences which form a foundation to the Engineering subjects and English for the improvement of written/communication skill of our student.
The Basic Science and Humanities Department has the some of the best qualified and experienced faculties who have tremendous potential to shape the attitude, inherent talents and personalities of students and transform them into quality products. The department with high profile Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, English and Humanities teachers imbibes into itself the dedication to carry on the cherished objectives of spreading education in a most effective manner. Well spaced Physics, Chemistry and English Language Laboratories equipped with adequate instruments add value to the basic science department. Our laboratories have been well established not only to cover complete syllabus but to motivate students to learn beyond the syllabus which definitely develops complete knowledge of the subject.
The flagship objective of the Department is to train the young minds to explore the new horizons.
It gives me immense pleasure to present brief report of Department of Basic Science & Humanities. Since, the Basic Science & Humanities subjects are the foundation subjects for all the branches of engineering and technology, Department of Basic Science & Humanities imparts to build a firm base as part of the Engineering Education. The BS & H department plays a vital role in teaching basic sciences courses as prescribed by the curriculum of the Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology B.Tech program.
The Department enhances knowledge in subjects like Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Physics, Engineering Chemistry, Communication skill, Engineering Economics etc. Well educated, talented and dedicated Faculty and Staff Members are the backbone of this department.
The teaching module comprises of lectures, tutorials and practicals along with various other initiatives. Faculty members perform the role of a perfect facilitator as Mentor to each section. The methodology adopted in the classroom teaching is based on the application of innovation strategies, comprehensive lectures, regular assignments and active interaction between teachers and students. The purpose of inducing the subjects of Basic Science & Humanities in Engineering study is to lay a solid foundation of basic concepts for innovative future with limitless opportunities. Therefore, the department acts as an active catalyst to develop perfect approach to unlock their hidden talent, personality and communication skills to fulfill the needs of young engineers.
