School of Humanities and Social Sciences
The School of Humanities and the Social Sciences is established as a part of the Institute with a view to apprise the technology students to becoming an open-minded, socially responsible citizen and have a better understanding of life. With growing peer pressure on individuals in society for overall personality development, the courses taught by the School also bring in the students the awareness on political economy, literature, national and international policy concerns, and analytical thinking. The learning on diverse range of areas in Philosophy, from science to human mind, impart development of newer possibilities to the students in growing as thinking individuals rather than a mere following of technology immersed life.
