Humanities & Social Sciences Department

The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences has been an integral part of the Institute since its inception in the year 2010. The main objective of the department is the holistic and all round development of the technical graduates into socially responsible individuals. There has been strong exhortation and sensible view among the technical institutes that technical education needs to be complemented by a vital appreciation of the social values and interpersonal context of all learning. Responding to this eminent viewpoint, the department is infusing the concept of "Technology for the greater good of mankind and society as a whole" so that the students will not only excel in technical expertise but also inculcate among themselves excellence in communication, refinement of reasoning, openness to new ideas, and a commitment to social values and ethical behaviour.

The department strives to provide the students allied knowledge essential to engineering students and has expertise in various disciplines like English Language and Literature, European Literature in Translation, Classical Greek Literature, Abnormal Psychology, General Management, Marketing Management, Financial Management, Human Resource Management and Operations Management. Keeping abreast with the requirement to become a world-class research centre in addition to being a world-class teaching institution, the department will be commencing its PhD programme in the near future.
