Department of Basic Science and Humanities (BSH)


About Us

The Department of Basic Sciences & Humanities (BSH) initiating its journey since the inception of the University in 2015, is a multidisciplinary department housing four different domains namely Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Humanities. As an integral part of the institute, the Department plays a pivotal role in disseminating knowledge par excellence to the first year B.Tech students both in the fields of Basic Sciences as well as in English and Soft Skills. The Department strictly adhering to the AICTE approved course module divides the entire first year curriculum into two major divisions:

  1. Scholastic Activities
  2. Non-Scholastic Activities

Scholastic Activities

  • Induction Module
  • The regular teaching-learning process for the first year B.Tech students initiate with the three -weeks Induction Module bridging the transition from SCHOOL to COLLEGE.

  • Teaching-Learning Methodology
  • The teaching -learning methodology is promoted thoroughly through classroom teaching and practical experimentations. The Department has the state-of-art Physics Lab and Chemistry Lab to practice hands-on laboratory sessions. Likewise, the Language Laboratory plays a vital role in framing the communication and soft-skill acumen of the individual students. However, apart from the regular curricula multifarious co-curricular activities like the Olympiads in Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry are organized on a regular basis to groom the analytical and cognitive skills of the individual students.

  • Invited Lecture/Talk Series
  • Regular invited lecture/talk series by veteran academicians of national and international stature stand as the flagship event of the Department.

  • On-Line MOOCs Courses
  • The students are encouraged to register for online MOOCS certified courses like NPTEL and SWAYAM to name a few.

Non-scholastic Activities

  • Extra/Co-curricular engagements
  • Students are encouraged to participate in several extra/co-curricular activities including summer camps on robotics, physics and mathematics, attending workshops, participating in debate, poster competitions, essay competitions, music, plantation workshops and sports to showcase their innate talents both at the inter/intra-college levels.

    The scholarly acumen of the Departmental students on a further note remains counterpoised with multifarious achievements of the Departmental faculty members encompassing academic and research wings. Prolific and erudite team of faculty members with excellent academic credentials of national and international repute contribute harmoniously to the holistic growth of the Department.
