Basic Sciences & Humanities

About the Department:

The Department of Applied Sciences and Humanities provides an encouraging environment to clear the fundamental concepts of problem solving ability of students so that they become technocrats of caliber. The Dept. of applied Sciences and Humanities plays a unique and distinctive role in an Institute where the ethos of science and Technology prevails. The aim of the department is to provide high quality education in the field of applied sciences and humanities for the undergraduate students in various engineering courses. The department deals with the subjects namely, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and English.

The Faculty of Science and Humanities is an essential part of Vivekananda Institute of Technology from the year of its establishment. The Department consists of 17 Faculty members and 6 Lab Technicians under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Sarita Choudhary (Head of the Department). A series of transformation steps brought essential changes into the academic life of Vivekananda Institute of Technology (VIT) and its faculties started in 2008.

The Faculty of Science and Humanities is backed by a team of qualified and experienced faculty members and supporting staff for its smooth and efficient functioning by imparting quality education and training to the students.

At present, the academic curriculum involves B.Tech. Course in which we have five branches like Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

Salient features:

(1) The Department is equipped well.
(2) It engages regular tutorials to provide the students better understanding of subjects

Engineering Physics Lab   :

The Engineering Physics Lab at the institute is well furnished and equipped with international quality instruments for conducting not only the experiments as prescribed in RTU syllabus but also    beyond syllabus. Dark room facility is available to perform experiments on optic. The experiments are performed by using Newton’s ring, Sextant; Carey foster’s Bridge, Spectrometer, Charging and Discharging, He-Ne gas Laser etc. All the experiments are conducted under guidance of faculty members and technical staff.

 

Engineering Chemistry Lab :

The Engineering Chemistry Lab is well equipped for conducting not only the experiments as prescribed in RTU syllabus but also beyond the syllabus and experiments are performed by using pesky martin apparatus, red wood viscometer, muffle furnaces, PH meter, conductivity meter, vacuum pump and oven. All the experiments are conducted under guidance of faculty members and technical staff.

 

Chemistry and Environmental Engg. Lab    :

The Chemistry and Environmental Engineering Lab is well equipped to carry out experiments related to water testing and sewage water testing. The main aim of lab is to create awareness about the environment related issues among the students.

Digital Multimedia Language Laboratory:

The English Language Lab operates through digital multimedia language lab software. This lab is well equipped with language learning software courses from Cambridge University Press, Oxford Press and other software courses to prepare students for IELTS, TOEFL, BEC etc. It helps the students with phonetic symbols in an effective ways. They will also learn how to pronounce words correctly.
