We started our exciting journey in the year of 2019, with a sanctioned student strength of 60 and the intake increased to 120 with effect from 2022-23. We, in our Department, offer a large number of optional courses for providing a wide spectrum of options to the students to pursue their interests. The primary focus of our curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem-solving skills and innovation of new technologies introducing new developments. Our department maintains active research groups for carrying out collaborative and interdisciplinary research. We have state of the art research facilities to support our academic programs and research. At present, the department faculty are guiding 6 Ph.D. scholars from industries and academics. It is heartening to find that our students look forward to contributing to solving the technological challenges of society with active participation, perseverance, and hard work. Skill & knowledge relevant to real-world problems is inseminated to produce dynamic, socially conscious, and sensitive human beings.
