The Department of Humanities & Basic Sciences at SKIT offers the bridge courses in Chemistry, English, Mathematics and Physics to help the engineering students get attuned to the specialized engineering domains. In addition, the department coordinates a smoother transition of our novice engineering aspirants from the academic setting they experienced at 10+2 level to the study ambience they will encounter in their undergraduate Engineering and Technology course.
The members of the faculty regularly attend seminars, conferences, workshops and training programs on multi-disciplinary subjects. Most of them are associated with scientific bodies striving for the professional and intellectual development of their fellow faculty members. The faculty has addressed itself to the need to orient the students towards the ultimate goal of relating their knowledge to the reality of life situations.
Extracting and disseminating vital information forms the essential tenet of engineering education which the department ensures by taking special care for improving communication skills in the English language. The department currently comprises well qualified faculty members,organized into four units along broad disciplinary lines – Chemistry, English, Mathematics and Physics. The department transforms the technical into the creative through its engagement with various productive clubs like Eco Friends Club, Science & Technology Club, Spiritual Club, Toastmasters Club, Docu-Drama Club and many more.
