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.
We are committed to produce not only good engineers but good human beings, also.
We believe in and work for the holistic development of students and teachers. We strive to achieve this by imbibing a unique value system, transparent work culture, excellent academic and physical environment conducive to learning, creativity and technology transfer.
Programme Educational Objectives (PEO’S)
To provide opportunity to acquire the basic knowledge of engineering mathematics, physics, chemistry, electrical, civil, mechanical and engineering graphics subjects. To offer an educational program in a practice-oriented discipline such as LAB INNOVATIONS/STTP etc. are that of the live, hands-on laboratory and design experience.
II. Core Competence:
To provide a solid foundation in mathematical, physical and chemical sciences along with engineering fundamentals which are very much needed to solve real time engineering problems and also help them to pursue their higher studies.
To aware and achieve scientific and engineering breadth amongst student in such a way that student can comprehend, analyze, design, and create novel products and solutions for the real life engineering problems as well as to meet local and global requirements.
To inculcate such a culture in student for professional and ethical attitude, effective communication skills both in verbal and writing, teamwork skills, multidisciplinary approach, and ability to co-relate engineering issues to broad social context.
V. Learning Environment:
To provide an academic environment and time to time awareness about excellence by giving them an opportunity to built up leadership qualities.
To formulate well written guidelines for ethical codes, code of conduct and facilitate students in such a way that they become a life-long learner which is very much essential for a successful professional career.
