- Computer Science & Engineering, Biotechnology
- Civil Infrastructure Engineering)
- M.Sc.Tech (Industrial Mathematics – 3 years)
- Doctoral Programme (PhD) 3-5 Years
The Department was set up with the intention of producing well-rounded engineers, not only having good technological skills but also with the ability to interact with different organs of an organization. Thus, the Department develops ‘soft’ skills in students. These skills are group and co-operative working, economics, finance, project management etc. Additionally, the department exposes students to entrepreneurship skills, HR management, Customer relationship management, total quality management etc.
Beside offering a number of courses for Undergraduate Engineering programmes,the Department of Physics also carries out Graduate Engineering teaching and Research.The Department offers elective courses like Optical Fibre networks, wireless networks, Nano-science and technology, Bio-sensors to undergraduate students in Electronics and Communication, Computer Science/IT, and Biotechnology/Bioinformatics.
- M.Tech (Optical & Wireless Communication Technologies-OWCT- 2 Years)
The Department prepares students for the award of a B.Tech. Degree in Civil Engineering. The curriculum has been specially designed keeping in view emerging Civil Engineering needs of the country as well as the modern emphasis on IT enabled Civil Engineering.
