The Department of Basic Sciences is devoted to foster the fundamental principles and understanding of science that are capable of enhancing the human experience. The academic programs of this department are organized to meet the requirements of the fast growing technology. The Department has been there, right from the inception of the College, offering instruction in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry to students of the various core branches of engineering.
Education is central to the mission of the Department which offers several educational programs for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as for teachers. The overriding objectives of these programs are,
- To inform and enthuse students and teachers about the fundamental aspects of science
- To contribute Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics content for U.G. and P.G. programmes
- To encourage students to pursue careers in science and engineering
First year B.Tech students are introduced to the world of Science and engineering through programs that engage them in various activities under the effective guidance of the faculty. Basic Science department caters for the requirements of the beginners of B.Tech with proper guidance and motivation from the first day of their joining the College.
The Department of Basic Sciences comprises 14 full time faculty members, of whom ten are in Mathematics, four in Physics and four in Chemistry. While continuing our service to other faculties, we also make efforts for continuous self-improvement and development as a research department in the field of science and technology. The Department has been the source of innovation in basic sciences education from its inception.
The Department of Basic Science has a special mission to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research and education in different areas of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics that will address the future needs of the society. The Department promotes collaboration among the faculty as well as between Amal Jyothi faculty and researchers of other institutions, industry and government laboratories. Department also conducts research in various fields of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
