The Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), earlier a part of the erstwhile School of Applied Sciences and Humanities, came into existence on 16th December, 2013, The Department offers courses in English, Technical Communication and Sociology. The course in English offered in the first semester is common to all the branches of engineering. The objective of the course in English is to enhance the language skills of the students not only for academic and professional purposes but also for real life situations. With the setting up of a language lab, emphasis will be laid on spoken English generating sufficient time and space necessary to make a confident speaker. Other than undergraduate courses, the Department is also looking forward to offering research in English Language and Literature, English Language Teaching, Language Acquisition and Development and Sociolinguistics from the next academic session.
