DEPARTMENT OF BASIC SCIENCES & HUMANITIES

 

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The primary objective of Basic Sciences and Humanities Department is to provide platform and launch pad for all engineering Streams being explored in our institute. Basic Sciences and Humanities Department provides the initial skills and knowledge of all engineering streams to solve various complex engineering pproblems. 

The department offers of courses like Engineering Physics, Engineering Chemistry, Engineering Mathematics I, Engineering Mathematics II, Development of Skills (I), Environment and Ecology in first year academics and, Engineering Mathematics III, Engineering Mathematics IV in second year academics. The faculty members of the department also render their services in conducting higher class courses like Organic Chemistry, Functional core shell Nano composite, introduction to nanotechnology. The department offers excellent infrastructure and resources in the form of highly qualified, knowledgeable and dedicated faculty members. The laboratories in the department are well equipped and able to cater the academia prescribed in the university syllabi. A special facility of “GOLS” is created to facilitate advance learning of soft skills. 

The department is involved in a number of technical and co-curricular activities encouraging students to broaden their horizons of thought process, innovate and implement their ideas through the annual events like SciClone.

MESSAGE FROM HOD

Dear Students,

I am delighted to share that the institute is making its presence as one of the leading institutes in Maharashtra and across the country. The department of Basic Sciences & Humanities has proven its significance by keeping its objectives in sync with the greater objectives of the institute.
We aim at exploring the basic knowledge of science and strengthening the technological inventions of the institute.
Physics, Chemistry, Language Laboratories along with an advanced workshop have been very well established not only to cover complete syllabus but to motivate students to learn beyond the syllabus which develops complete knowledge of the subject.
Well-experienced and highly qualified faculty members of the department have made consistent and strenuous efforts for the students to improve their learning and research & development processes.
In addition to the primary teaching duties, all of them are engaged in academic publications in National as well as International Journals of repute for professional enrichment.
Further from the current academic year the revised syllabus (60-40 pattern) and Engineering Exploration activity is certainly proving beneficial in development of creative and critical thinking of our students.
It has become extremely important for all of us to strive hard to keep pace with the changing scenario, as we observe the dramatic developments in the field of science and technology today. The key to our success depends on the dedication of everyone in all the endeavors with happiness. We need to still work hard to maintain excellence in teaching and research to prepare students to sustain with the trends of higher studies in the core-branches in their succeeding years.
