The department of humanities and Sciences was established in the year 1997 and it has emerged as a department pursuing excellence. The department has a team of highly-qualified and well-experienced faculty members and non-teaching staff. The department has 15 faculty members with Doctoral degree. Many faculty members are experts in some of the emerging fields of English, Mathematics and Physical sciences and have made significant contributions in their own fields. The aim of the department is to broadly educate aspiring engineering students in the basics of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry & English which serve as a platform for the growth of students in their further study of Technical subjects. The strength of the department lies in the perfect synchronization of knowledge and skills. The major motivating factor of the department is the commitment and team work that is exhibited in the teaching – learning process. Extra care is taken to offer special coaching class during weekends and crash course closer to the University Examinations, tailor – made to suit the needs of all types of students. Adding a feather to the cap of the department is the recognition by the Anna University as a research centre in Mathematics & Chemistry. Every faculty member is provided to access to the internet. This facilitates sharing of knowledge and information which plays a significant role in upgrading and enriching research work.
The department has an inhouse library which houses nearly 1000 books. These books, pertaining to Mathematics, Physical Sciences and English are contemporary and examination - oriented. Both faculty members and students have an access to these books and they serve as an aid to the academic pursuits of interested candidates.
Students are trained in Group Discussions, Presentations and Interview skills in order to make them employable. The Department has made tremendous progress technologically. Teaching and Research should go hand in hand. The faculty members of the department actively participate and present papers in conferences and attend programmes such as workshop, seminar, FDP etc.. Various guest lectures and industrial visits are arranged for the students to acquire practical knowledge in their course of study.
