The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, established in July 2016, is the youngest of all departments in the institute. At present, the department provides services to various departments by teaching a wide spectrum of subjects at the B.E, M.C.A., B.Pharm and M.B.A. levels. The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences plays a unique and distinctive role in an institute where the ethos of science and technology prevails.
The undergraduate courses taught by the faculty of the department are aimed at familiarizing the students of science and technology with the broader social, cultural, economic, ethical and humane concerns underlying social change. For this, it runs humanity syllabi e.g. ‘Universal Human Values’; ‘Economics for Engineers’; ‘Values, Humanities and Professional Ethics’. The courses on Technical English and Communication Skills, aim at enabling the students to communicate clearly and with impact, by improving their verbal and non-verbal communication style, as well as enhancing interpersonal skills.
We envision an institute where every student receives a holistic humanities education at the core of academic learning and gets equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their professional careers and in other spheres of life in which they are expected to make a contribution.
The chief mission of the department is to provide futuristic support to Students, especially, in technical education, through practical implications of various subjects; teaching them economics, ethics and values, at the same time, enhancing their communication skills and equipping them with GD, PI; thereby, helping them achieve their full potential.
