National Engineering College / departments / science & humanities
The Department of Science and Humanities consists of Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and English disciplines. All the disciplines in the department exist as a separate division and maintain individual identity. The department comprises of highly qualified, experienced and goal oriented members with specialization in various fields. Besides OUTCOME BASED EDUCATION, the department inculcates VALUE BASED EDUCATION. Developing the moral behaviour among the students, utilizing the human resources and coordinating academic responsibilities are the exclusive potentials of the department. The department regularly organizes workshops, symposia and conferences in new emerging areas for the benefit of the students, researchers, faculty members and industrialists. It also conducts social related extension activities like State level Quiz competition, motivational programmes for Higher Secondary school students and latest technological project exhibition.
The chemistry discipline nurture scientific bent of mind in our students, guide them and mould them into responsible Engineers. The dynamic faculty members involved in teaching and research activities and has received funded project amount from reputed funding agencies like DST, BRNS & CSIR. The thrust areas of research are organic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, computational chemistry and environmental studies. Solar material, sensor material, biomaterial, and water analysis are the interested topics of research. Chemistry faculty members have a vibrant research program which includes all frontier areas of research. Visual teaching/learning aids and learning resource materials are available and our chemistry laboratories are well-equipped. We have organized several conferences and workshops as extension activities. The Chemistry Research Centre of the department is recognized and approved by Anna University, Chennai.
The target of the discipline of English is to foster excellent skill among the students to communicate in English. Honing soft skills and communication skill is the need of the hour to face this competitive world. The diligent faculty members train the students in an iconic, feel-at- home, learning environment to perform efficiently in the campus, as well as the future work places. Students gain incredible communication skill through various learning activities in the classroom and the Language Laboratory. Students are also trained and provided with good opportunities to get through valuable English Proficiency Exams like BEC (Business English Certification), IELTS and NPTEL (IIT Madras Certification) etc.
The core objectives of the department are to impart students with logical thinking, analytical reasoning and problem solving skills; to equip them with more technological skills and scientific computing techniques based on mathematical methods; to introduce realistic application of Mathematics in related sciences; and to enable the students to appreciate the intrinsic aspects of mathematics. The faculties of Mathematics are widening the vistas of rich knowledge to UG and PG students and deepening their aptitude in Graph Theory, Operation Research, Queuing Theory, Random Process, Mathematical transformations, Differential equations, Calculus etc., They play a vital role in building students’ confidence and making them proficient in problem solving capability. Students are motivated to practice aptitude related problems through an online portal (Skill rack), by which students can improve their problem solving skills (which helps them to perform well in competitive exams) and programming skills.
Experienced and energetic faculty members are passionately involved in teaching and research activities related to Physics. They guide the students in Applied Physics, Semiconductor Physics, Solid State Devices and Materials Science. The ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering physics problems, the ability to, conduct, analyze and interpret experiments in engineering physics are inculcated among the students. The research work is progressing in the field of crystallography, crystal growth, thin films and nano materials. The spacious and well set Physics laboratory helps the students to gain thorough knowledge about the experiments. The members of Physics are working diligently towards fostering a scientific temperament and motivating students to do virtual lab also.
