The Department of Applied Sciences and Humanities teaches and promotes practical aspects of Applied Sciences and Humanities to build a solid foundation as part of the Engineering Education. The department prepares students for core engineering branches by educating them in the basic sciences of physics, chemistry and mathematics in the first year. "The Constitution of India" and "Professional Ethics" are two Humanities subjects that strengthen the civic sense and ethics of the students. Environmental studies make our students stewards of the environment that sustains us, our families and communities now and in the future.
Mathematics is indispensable for the engineering community. Students use mathematics to understand and solve engineering problems. The Department of Mathematics has 13 dedicated well qualified and experienced faculty. Eight of them have doctoral degree and remaining five are pursuing Ph.D program. The Mathematics department has the research centre recognized by VTU, Belagavi. 25+ papers on mathematics have been published in international journals and 15+ papers have been presented in national and international conferences.
Physics is crucial to the understanding of the world around us. Physics encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles. Physics is the basis of many engineering courses. The department of physics offers Engineering Physics courses to all engineering programs in semester 1 and 2. The department offers Ph.D. / M.Sc. (Engg.) research programs from Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum.
The Department of Chemistry was established in 2001. Over the period, the Department has been nurtured to be one of the best departments. The Department of Chemistry teaches and promotes practical aspects of science to build a solid foundation as part of the Engineering Education. The Department of Chemistry has teaching programme at graduation level to all engineering programs in semester I and II. The department offers Engineering Chemistry theory and laboratory courses covering basic concepts in various sub-disciplines of chemistry (physical, inorganic, organic).
The department has a team of faculty graduated from premier institutes who are actively engaged in pursuing research in frontier areas of chemistry in addition to their teaching assignments. As a result, more than 100 research papers have been published from this Department in reputed National and International Journals. To keep pace with the advancement in principal areas of Chemistry, our faculty members have been updating their knowledge by visiting conferences at different places. At present, there are 3 ongoing projects sponsored by DST and VGST with total outlay worth 1.7 crores. The Department also offers Ph.D research programs from Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum.
The English Communication skills laboratory is an integral part of the department. Students receive training in written and verbal communication essential to succeed in the work place.
