It has been regularly conducting competitions (paper presentation, quiz, etc.), exhibitions, guest lectures, etc. to bring out the inherent talent & skills among students.


Virtual Lab

Virtual lab is a project initiated by Ministry of Human Resource Development. The project is aimed to provide remote-access to Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering. This would help the students in learning basic and advanced concepts through remote experimentation. Our Institution is recognized as a Creamy Layer Nodal Centre for implementing the above programme. We have introduced Virtual Labs in Physics and Chemistry in the Curriculum & Syllabus of the First year B. Tech. students.


Activity Based Learning (ABL)

ABL method is widely used in the classroom to make the Teaching-Learning environment lively and to enable all the students to participate in the process. This method enables the weak students to understand the concept easily and to join with other fellow students for better learning. Dr. J. Sethuraman, Senior Professor in Physics has prepared many models to explain the basic concepts in Science & Technology. The Video lectures on ABL, given Dr. J. Sethuraman is made available in YOUTUBE and it is receiving widespread response across the globe.
