Message from HOD

Prof Shreyas, HOD, Basic Science

It gives me immense pleasure to present brief report of Department of Basic Science. Since, the Basic Science subjects are the foundation subjects for all the branches of engineering and technology, Department of Basic Science imparts to build a firm base as part of the Engineering Education. The BS department plays a vital role in teaching basic sciences courses as prescribed by the curriculum of the VTU in I, II, III & IV year of B.Tech.

The Department enhances knowledge in subjects like Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Physics, Engineering Chemistry etc. Well educated, talented and dedicated Faculty and Staff Members are the backbone of this department. In addition to the primary teaching duties, all of them have their publications in National as well as International Journals of repute for attaining perfection in their profession.

The teaching module comprises of lectures, tutorials and practical’s along with various other initiatives. Faculty members perform the role of a perfect facilitator as Mentor to each section. The methodology adopted in the classroom teaching is based on the application of innovation strategies, comprehensive lectures, regular assignments and active interaction between teachers and students. The purpose of inducing the subjects of Basic Science in Engineering study is to lay a solid foundation of basic concepts for innovative future with limitless opportunities. Therefore, the department acts as an active catalyst to develop perfect approach to unlock their hidden talent, personality and communication skills to fulfill the needs of young engineers.
