DISCIPLINES

ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS aims to create engineers with a strong mathematical background, and through systematic training and research it develops critical evaluation, creative thinking, problem solving skills and intellectual maturity.

ENGINEERING PHYSICS helps the students to see the connections between seemly disparate phenomena and helps them to express their creativity.

ENGINEERING CHEMISTRY familiarises the application of chemistry in the field of technology and creates awareness about the major environmental issues for a sustainable development.

ECONOMICS equips the students in relating their engineering ideas to the existing market trends; it provides knowledge in identifying genuine market areas where they can implement their ideas and it also motivates the students in relating engineering knowledge to managerial economics.

MANAGEMENT enables the students to critically evaluate the current market trends; it also helps them to cultivate good management skills and thereby accepting the challenging business environment with their innovative ideas in engineering. The theoretical knowledge in management also provides the student to blend the Engineering science with management science.

ENGLISH & COMMUNICATION SKILLS motivate the students to achieve their fullest possible potential for self-development in various aspects of language and communication skills for success in their professional and social life.
