About Department:

The Department of Basic Science & Humanities was also established in 2012 with the other departments. The department comprises of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Humanities. Since its commencement, the department has impart quality education and training at the undergraduate level in various areas of Engineering. The infrastructure and lab facilities are being established to provide adequate opportunities for students to learn practical aspect of Basic Science & Humanities. The language laboratory was designed By IIT Kharagpur which is worth mentioning for betterment of communication skill.

Objectives of the department:

  • To train the students in English communication skills apart from regular curriculum and syllabus.
  • Exposure to telephonic interviews, video conferencing and public speaking.
  • Group Discussion practice, Extempore, Presentations through overhead projectors, slides, videos etc.
  • To develop expert knowledge in the field of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics.

Mission of the department:

  • Support core engineering programmes by strengthening the knowledge base of the student in initial few semesters.
  • Prepare and groom final year engineering students in view of HR and communication related aspects to face interviews for industrial and corporate jobs
  • Encourage motivated and enthusiastic B. Tech students to pursue higher studies in M. Tech. so that they can further opt for research career
  • in interdisciplinary fields.
  • Vision of the department
  • To prepare proper knowledge base of basic science and humanities for B. Tech. students so that they can understand their complex engineering techniques and use basic scientific knowledge to design solutions for fundamental and advanced engineering problems. Preparation of manpower with sound technical knowledge for futuristic scientific research is also one of the major goals of this department.

It’s a privilege to welcome you to the virtual tour of the Department of Basic Science and Humanities, Techno International Batanagar.

A strong base is the bedrock of a towering building. Similarly, team BSH of TIB are the base makers, laying the foundation of the engineering curriculum. Knowledge in basic science forms the fundamentals of almost every engineering and technical course. Value-based education, communication and management skills are essential to ‘complete’ a budding engineer in all aspects. Techno International Batanagar is currently running UG (B. Tech.) programs in Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. BSH subjects like Mathematics, Physics, Humanities and Management are inevitable supportive components of all these curricula. We, team BSH cater to these needs under a single central supervision.

Our vision is to trigger the inbuilt application skills of theoretical knowledge. Aiming at this, we devote ourselves to blend the technical future of our students with classic scientific base.

We take utmost care in properly guiding the newly admitted students in their transition from schooling to an entirely different college life. Team BSH supervises their initial journey in this institute starting from the colourful Induction course to introduction to multidimensional science and humanities topics.>/p>

Our Department is enriched with well-qualified, talented and dedicated faculty members. Their tireless effort has always aided the budding engineers of our institute to enter their core academic courses with strong confidence based on basic scientific knowledge and soft skills. On behalf of the department, it remains a privilege to wish the future engineers a grand success for their upcoming golden carrier to be pursued under the banner of Techno International Batanagar.
