The department focuses on development and strengthening system thinking, problem solving, analysis, design, research, team work, communication skills, and readiness for lifelong learning. The courses run by the department use mixed techniques of interactive lectures, guided case studies, literature surveys and project work that require team work and critical and creative thinking. It emphasizes on undergraduate as well as graduate research activities. The quality policy is to pursue global standards of excellence in our endeavors and to remain accountable through processes of self evaluation and continuous improvement.
Through a team of more than forty faculty members, the department puts a great emphasis on laboratory and project work. While laboratories are also used for developing skills to use and apply various concepts, tools and techniques, their main purpose is to develop the core technical as well as general professional competencies through experiential and collaborative learning. Main purpose of the laboratories is to develop the abilities to design and conduct experiments; collect, analyze and interpret data; work independently and also in teams; and also to improve reporting and communication skills.
Faculty treats students as their children and is always ready to provide support in terms of educational guidance and morale support. Weak Students are identified and are given special attention and extra time for improving on their weakness.
This practical experience in the laboratory is intended to nurture the students initiative, originality, creativity, and spirit of inquiry and also to generate an appreciation of the nature of engineering design and scientific discovery. Through various active learning experiences in laboratories, students gain more insights into the field of study, develop ability to apply their knowledge to a greater extent, exhibit a greater level of understanding of course material and sharpen their problem solving skills.
