Department of Science & Humanities
Mathematics is the branch of science that deals with logic, decision-making, assumptions, deductions, the clarity of thought and ability to solve the problems in a calculative manner. It is employed as a key instrument in the diverse fields such as social, life and medical sciences, engineering and technology. Most of these innovations introduced worldwide and every technological product that developed by human is a byproduct of science and mathematical applications. In the universe, many real world problems can be formulated as mathematical models to analyze the situations and to predict future. Engineering Mathematics is the art of applying mathematics to solve real-world problems. It combines mathematical theory, practical engineering and scientific computing to address today’s technological challenges. Mainly it offers students an opportunity to study applied mathematics as essential components of modern engineering. By combining courses of applied mathematics, statistics, the physical sciences and engineering, a student may individualize a program of study, of theory, or applications or both. It provides a broad foundation for graduate studies in branches of engineering, as well as in mathematics, and can prepare students for a career in specific sectors of industry as employee or as entrepreneur in business.
The Department of Physics has been formed in the month of January 2013. The Department is currently headed by Dr. G. Srinivasa Reddy and is actively supported by seven other faculty members. Among the faculty group, four members are doctorates and one faculty member has submitted thesis for the award of Ph.D degree and the other members are actively involved in research. Due to its potential applications in fields of science and technology, Materials Science research is actively pursued in the department with a special focus on Magnetic materials (Bulk & Nano ferrites). As a part of the research contribution to the institute the faculty members have published about fifteen publications in international peer reviewed SCI indexed journals with good impact factors. The faculty handle Engineering Physics (EP) course for MECH, CIVIL and CHEM departments and Applied Physics (AP) Course for EEE, ECE, CSE and IT departments. The Engineering Physics course covers the fundamental concepts of Optics & Coherent optics, Material Properties, Thermodynamics and Mechanics which are vital for the Engineering students of the ICE branches. On the other hand in the Applied Physics course, rudiments related to Optics & Coherent optics, Material Properties and Electromagnetic wave theory are taught to the students. Both the courses were designed based on the inputs given by the respective departments which would cater the requirements of the engineering students and pave paths for higher learning. Both the courses have been approved by the BOS Committee in the month of June 2015. The EP & AP lab experiments were designed in connection with the theory taught in the classroom and also based on the future academic requirements of the engineering freshman.
The Department of Chemistry has been effectively functional. It stands focused to its Ideals in imparting knowledge and preparing the students towards achieving academic excellence through the acquisition of core competence for engineering professionals. The Department possesses highly qualified and experienced staff with 2 Doctorates.The Department is committed to excellence in the arena of chemistry by establishing research programs for meeting scientific and technological challenges faced by the ever changing world of the 21st century. The aim is to produce highly sought after and knowledgeable graduates for pursuing careers with academia, industry and government.
The Department is actively working on projects like Biogas and UV reflecting paints . It is facilitated with water testing laboratory, in which various parameters related to water an its quality can be analyzed as per ASTM. This lab is established aiming to provide service to the society.
The Department of English and Humanities has ten members of the faculty, out of which two are doctorates and four are actively engaged in Research. Among the rest, two has been awarded M.Phil. The Curriculum for English Language is designed with an orientation to the requirements of the English for Specific Purposes. The Courses (English language practice, Professional communication skills and Business communication skills) are designed to fulfill the academic and employment requirements of the technical and management students. The deliverance mechanism of the content is purely practice mode and activity based. It enables the students understand better their core hone on their own the skills inherited suitable to the goals set for their further studies. Peer learning upon student grading on their linguistic competency and understanding in the sessions helps to minimize the gap of language learning flaw arisen from rural and urban schooling exposure in the students. An audit course on soft skills has also been introduced for the students of second year B.Tech to fine tune them with changing requirements of Industry.
