The Department came into existence in the year 1998 when the college was started. The Department comprises of seven disciplines namely, English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Physical Education and Library Sciences. The prime focus of the department is to provide a conceptual base in Basic Sciences which form a foundation to the Engineering subjects and it is instrumental in grooming the students into competent Engineers and individuals through training in Soft Skills, to compete for global opportunities. In view of the rapid development of knowledge and the technological changes, the department seeks to strengthen itself by integrating it with the engineering departments for a productive knowledge base. The department has been encouraging the conduct of workshops and seminars to enable the faculty to keep abreast of the knowledge and methodologies in the respective fields of research.
The present intake is 600 spared across 6 branches. All the first year students are administered by the Department. It is a full fledged Department consisting of experienced and well qualified members of faculty in their subjects and committed to their profession.
Laboratories for Physics, Chemistry and English language are fully equipped with modern equipments to meet the requirements of the syllabi and replenished as and when necessary. All the class rooms for I-B.Tech are established in well furnished independent building with a congenial atmosphere.
The results of I year B.Tech (where in S&H has a major contribution) are way ahead of the results of most other Engineering Colleges under JNTU right from the inception of the college. The Department is quite active in conducting Workshops, extension lectures in addition to the regular teaching schedule to create awareness and zeal in the students. Apart from preparing the students for higher courses, the department takes a major lead in demonstrating and enabling students to imbibe leadership qualities.
