Basic Science and Humanities


Science is one of the vital subject without which life does not exist. Engineering is the application of basic sciences and it may be noted that all engineering branches originated from basic sciences. "Science without technology is useless and technology without science is blind".

Department of Basic Science and humanities was entrenched during the year 1979 when the college was established and is a combination of three Major departments- Engineering Physics, Engineering Chemistry and Mathematics. Along with the three major streams, additional subjects like "Universal Human Values", "Professional Ethics", "Constitution of India", "Technical English" and the regional language "Kannada" are also a part of this department to prepare the students for careers in all the fields of engineering aspects and also to carry out basic and applied research work. The Department is flourished with five well qualified and experienced faculties with international exposure; one of them is Doctorate holder. The Department also has two non-teaching staff

The department has well equipped laboratory for teaching engineering chemistry, engineering physics experiments and newly introducted MAT-LAB for all branches of engineering students. The Departments are also provided necessary computers with internet facilities.

The department is also incharge of all the activities related to fresh entrants to Engineering discipline and is been upgraded as per new syllabus under VTU. We educate and motivate technical students with necessary skills in different areas of sciences. We are teaching the students to enrich knowledge of applied basic sciences in engineering applications.

The Department of Physics and Chemistry have dedicated Laboratories with attached Staff rooms. The department has Wi-Fi facility. Both the labs have First Aid facilities and are fitted with CCTVs.

The laboratories are provided with a black board and desks for giving instructions to the students. Physics Lab is provided with a separate Optics lab (dark room) for performing the experiments like diffraction of laser beam, which employ monochromatic light beam. The labs are well equipped with all the major necessary equipment.
