Department of Engineering Sciences (First Year Engineering) was established for first year engineering students. The campus is 100 % residential; therefore students are in need of Parental approach from teachers. The teacher student relations strengthen through a special scheme named as Teacher Guardian Scheme. Under this scheme a teacher is assigned with a group of 30 students, where the teacher will see that, the students are comfortable in all respect for teaching learning processes. The students are free to discuss their academic & personal problems with their Teacher Guardian. The continuous assessment & progress of the ward is communicated to parents through mail, letter and telephone.


The First Year of Engineering is the beginning of professional carrier; therefore the Department is very careful about the teaching learning process and overall result of the students. The Department believes in learning based methodologies therefore implementing very strictly the scheme of Self Learning Sessions, which is the back bone of academics of First Year.  The lectures are characterized by mid-lecture activities to promote two-way interactions between students and teachers. One extra lecture every week (Self-Learning Session) is marked in timetable just for self-learning / peer learning over and above the requirement of number of lectures by University.

The laboratories are fully equipped with all necessary instruments and the classrooms are equipped with all basic facilities and LCD as effective tool for teaching learning processes. In pursuit of academic excellence, students are required to appear for two unit tests and one prelim examination.

VISION

The department of Engineering Sciences is committed to support the core engineering programs with fundamental knowledge and skills with acumen to be leaders amongst the generation of engineers.

MISSION

The department of Engineering Sciences strives to incorporate the best pedagogical methods to deliver basic sciences to engineering students and to guide them to be proactive learners, deep thinkers and responsible citizens in the early stages of their engineering education.


Programme Educational Objectives (PEO’S)

I. To provide opportunity to acquire strong theoretical and sound practical knowledge of basic sciences, so as to enable them to excel in further education.

II. To develop talent among students to innovate, communicate, analyze, interpret and apply technical concepts to solve real time engineering problems.

III. To aware and accomplish scientific and engineering breadth amongst student through various curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

IV. To inculcate professional and ethical attitude among students for providing engineering solution in a global and societal context.

V. To accomplish the overall development of students with the aid of project based learning environment.

The program outcomes (PO’s):

POs are statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do upon graduating from the program. These relate to the skills, knowledge, analytical ability attitude and behavior that students acquire through the program.

 

i) Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

ii) Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.

iii) Design/Development of Solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

iv) Conduct Investigations of Complex Problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions for  complex problems:

  • that cannot be solved by straightforward application of knowledge, theories and techniques applicable to the engineering discipline as against problems given at the end of chapters in a typical text book that can be solved using simple engineering theories and techniques;
  • that may not have a unique solution. For example, a design problem can be solved in many ways and   lead to multiple possible solutions;
  • that require consideration of appropriate constraints / requirements not explicitly given in the problem statement such as  cost, power requirement, durability, product life, etc.;
  • which need to be defined (modelled) within appropriate mathematical framework; and
  • that often require use of modern computational concepts and tools, for example, in the design of an antenna or a DSP filter.

v) Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

vi) The Engineer and Society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.

vii) Environment and Sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.

viii) Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.

ix) Individual and Team Work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.

x) Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

xi) Project Management and Finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.

xii) Life-long Learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and lifelong learning in the broadest context of technological change.

Program Specific Outcomes: PSOs

1. Get solid foundation in basic sciences along with engineering fundamentals for a successful professional career.

2. Able to co-relate engineering issues to broad social context.
