Engineering Sciences And Humanities Department

This department includes basic sciences (viz. Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics and Applied Chemistry & Humanities). Each branch has sophisticated instruments and experienced faculty. Some of the young faculty members are pursuing their Ph.D. programs. The only department which has two approved Professors and working with this institute from its inception. All the branches are actively involved in R & D and published more than 100 research papers in National and International Journals of repute.

The other details pertinent to laboratories and faculty are as follows

1. The Applied Chemistry faculty of the department caters to the needs of teaching of Engg/Materials chemistry with all sophisticated instruments and standard glassware to enable the students to perform volumetric exercises and experiments based on instrumental methods of analysis with spectrophotometer, Bomb calorimeter, pH meter, conductivity bridges and potentiometers, etc. In addition Engg. chemistry experiments using Viscometers and other fuel testing equipment are also performed.
The teaching staff of the Dept. are actively engaged in research and obtained Ph.D. and Published Research Papers in journals of international repute viz. Indian Journal of Chemical Technology ( a CSIR publication) and Asian Journal of Chemistry. The department has also established a research lab to carry-out the R & D which has advanced and sophisticated infrastructure worth Rs.2.5 lakhs. Apart from attending various prestigious National Conferences/Work-shops and other faculty development Programmes, the faculty is engaged in research the following areas.

  • Kinetic Studies of Saponification Processes – Chemical Kinetics.
  • Assessment of Assimilative capacity and source apportionment analysis of air pollutions in ambient air-Environments Chemistry.(A R&D project under CIL-WCL-KGS worth 17.59 Lakhs was sucessfully completed).

The Applied chemistry branch has so far published about 45 research papers in various National and International Journals.

2. The Applied Physics faculty caters to the needs of teaching of 'Engineering Physics and Advanced Physics' at the B.E. Ist and 2nd Semester. It has well equipped laboratories with up-to-date facilities required for undergraduate level courses as per the Nagpur University syllabus. The Solid State Physics Laboratory has modern instruments such as Dual Trace Oscilloscopes, Hall Effect Apparatus, Four Probe Apparatus, Solar Cell Characteristics Apparatus, etc. Most of the experimental kits are fabricated in the Department itself. The Optics Lab is equipped with He-Ne LASER and “Light propagation in Optical Fibres” demonstration kit in addition to other usual equipment.

Currently, two staff members, Shri Uddal B.Hatwar and Shri Yogiraj Bakale are working for their Ph.D. in the areas of Solid State and Polymer Physics. About TEN research papers have been published so far in National and International Journals by the faculty members.

3. The Applied Mathematics faculty offers basic and advanced courses in mathematics to the students of all branches and prepares them with the necessary fundamentals required for the respective specialization with close interaction with the various engineering departments. The staff members are encouraged to improve their qualifications by registering for M.Phil and Ph.D. programme. The faculty of Mathematics Department is engaged in research in the fields of  

  • Spherically symmetric space-time in general theory of relativity
  • The character K for the spherically symmetric space-time
  • Gauge theories of gravity
  • Gravitational repulsion in the general theory of relativity
  • Information Theory
  • Numerical Methods
  • Fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic

The staff members of Applied Mathematics have published 38 research papers in various journals of National and International repute. Moreover, there is no such thing called engineering without the involvement of this great subject. Not only just to carry the tradition but also to encourage the mathematical talent of students the Applied Mathematics Department has been organizing various activities through the 'Mathematical Club'.

4. HUMANITIES : Communications Skills & Ethical Sciences

Presently teaching for I.B.E. students and putting efforts for overall personality development of Engineers, Architects. This branch has established a communications Lab which offers training to students as well as staff in communication skills, public speaking and business English etc. The total coast of equipment in this lab is more than 1.36 lakhs. The branch also maintains several books on English and allied topics. The faculty members are actively engaged in the research work.
