Department plays a pivotal role in being the cornerstone of institute’s vision of providing students holistic development. The department helps students to express themselves effectively and to create proficient engineers who can be globally challenged in engineering fundamentals – experimental, analytical, computational and designing abilities.
Mathematics is an integral part of various engineering branches. All engineers need to formulate practical engineering problems in mathematical terms. They must be capable of solving the mathematical models, if necessary with the aid of a computer to interpret the solutions and understand the practical implications.
Students can get fundamental background knowledge in their first year of engineering. They emphasis on Vector calculus, Linear algebra, Fourier series, Laplace transforms, Differential equations. In the second year a study is made of Complex analysis, Partial differential equations and Numerical techniques to solve higher order differential equations, modelling and solve engineering problems related to Heat flows, Wave equations and Laplace equations. In the current trend of smart world technology, Basic probability, Applications of statistics and Discrete mathematics can help students easily deal with artificial intelligence and machine learning.
Effective Technical Communication and English:
Effective Technical Communication helps the students to develop skills in all the four facets of communication, namely listening, speaking, reading and writing. It caters the need of budding engineers to develop interpersonal, social and professional spheres of life. It holds a significant key in 21st Century. English Language is an important means of communication amongst people of different nations. It is necessary to become confident users of English Language. English language has become a pre requisite to perform effectively in the professional as well as day-to-day life. The department is fully equipped with a good language laboratory to impart the language skills successfully and make the students industry ready.
Principles Economics for Engineers is a subject of fundamental importance. This subject helps us understand the need to be an efficient manager and decision maker for economics awareness. Management of concepts is a profession that puts together the technical problem-solving expertise of engineering and management’s organizational, strategic and planning skills to oversee the operating success of complex engineering-driven companies.
There are a number of key subjects, among many others, in most undergraduate engineering programs with courses in Economics for Engineers that are commonly covered: time value of money, cost analysis, interest rates, economic volatility, and depreciation. Such topics are important for Engineers ‘ Economics as they provide the foundation for engineers to make good business environment decisions.
In an engineering program, learning engineering ethics helps students plan for their professional lives. A particular advantage for engineering students learning about ethics is that they gain insight in understanding and talking about ethical issues and the practice they come up with.
Engineering Physics is a bachelor program that is one of a kind. It is a study of combined disciplines of theoretical Physics, mathematical Physics and engineering. This discipline is also meant for cross functionality and bridges the gap between theoretical science and practical engineering with emphasis in research and development, design and analysis. Physics develops the ability to grasp the workings of the world around us and also provide a driving force behind the development of technology. “Physical Sciences, tempered with wisdom is the surest and the only way to human welfare.”
The first year is usually common with other engineering disciplines. It forms the basis of a students’ concepts for the upcoming years. Here are some of the broad topics dealt with in the following year:
(1) Non-linear Optics course focuses on the behaviour and properties of light and its interaction with different media in a very rigorous manner.
(2) Classical Mechanics and Dynamics: This is a very basic topic in physics which focuses on Newtonian Mechanics. Most of you must be familiar with Newton’s Laws. There will be a more extensive dealing of these laws in this course, using advanced mathematical concepts.
(3) Optoelectronics and Photonics: This is basically the study of photons. Light generation, detection, manipulation and its applications (for example: fibre optics Photovoltaic Cells(Solar cells), photodiodes, phototransistors, photoconductive camera tubes, charge coupled devices in space and satellites for observations, Laser diodes, LEDs, OLED technology etc) are studied.
(4) Solid State Physics: Like the name suggests, this is the study of solids, that is, rigid matter. Methods such as quantum mechanics, electromagnetism and crystallography are used for this purpose. This forms the basis for material science.
