Science and Humanities
The Department of S&H was established in the year 2001.
The Department of Science and Humanities, with faculty strength today of 75 members from English, Maths, Physics and Chemistry is headed by Ms.J.Joy Priscilla.
DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH:
Today’s global requirement places English Communication skills on the top, as a critical and crucial factor in making the students employable. William Shakespeare, the world famous poet and dramatist said, “Mend your speech lest it mar your fortune.”Communication is the one primary factor so crucial to be successful in any sphere of life.
The department of English, headed by Ms. Sunitha Deva Kumari has a very strong, dedicated and qualified faculty to help students become better Orators and communicators by teaching them not only to gain control over their stage fear and gain confidence, but also master the four skills- LSRW (Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing); The team also handles Pronunciation, Vocabulary enhancement, Error detection and correction and teaching grammar through interactive methods.
The department owns an air conditioned, Communication Lab set up in 2007 as prescribed by Anna University, with the purpose of giving students the opportunity of improving their skills. The Lab has two sections- English Lab and the Career Lab. The English Lab deals with cloze tests, Error Correction, Jumbled sentences, Reading Comprehension, all done online. The Career Lab focuses on the third year students, preparing them for Group Discussion, Oral Presentations, Resume writing and Mock Interviews. The lab is brought into use on a daily basis.
The faculty of English, besides dealing with the first year students also trains the Pre final year students for BEC- Business English Certificate from the University of Cambridge, UK, and Skill edge from ICTACT Academy of Tamilnadu. The students are also trained for Placement by the Department.
DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS:
For life, now or in the future, one should meet and master formulas or methods for calculating areas, perimeters and volumes, and understand formulas or computation methods needed for loans, pensions and investments, for shop keeping or buying and selling with mark-ups or markdowns. This understanding should go beyond using the formulas. Most people learn mathematics until circumstances force them to stop, or until the subject becomes too hard or they lose interest.
The Department of Mathematics, led by Ms. J Joy Priscilla, along with her team of dedicated, experienced and well qualified staff members help students learn maths with less effort and greater interest.
Mathematics differs from natural sciences. The physical theories in the sciences are tested by experiments, while mathematical statements are supported by proofs which may be verified objectively by mathematicians. If a certain statement is believed to be true by mathematicians (typically because special cases have been confirmed to some degree) but has neither been proven nor dis-proven, it is called a conjecture, as opposed to the ultimate goal: a theorem that is proven true. Physical theories may be expected to change whenever new information about our physical world is discovered. New ideas in Mathematics don't falsify old ones but rather are used to generalize what was known before to capture a broader range of phenomena.
There are no Nobel Prizes awarded to mathematicians. The award that is generally viewed as having the highest prestige in Mathematics is the Fields Medal.
DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS:
Making every student significantly “smarter” – which means having a more accurate understanding of nature or of anything in it – this is the one aim to teaching and learning Physics. The Department of Physics, led by Dr. Priya M and her team of talented faculty, provide the students with the opportunity to educate themselves with the various concepts in Physics what scientists have traditionally spent years of labour and study to understand. Experiments can sharpen students' powers of observation, stimulate the power of questioning, and help develop new understanding and vocabulary.
The Department has a well equipped laboratory to help the students in enabling them to share their skills and experience of making experiments work in the classroom.
The Department of Physics is recognised as a Research centre by Anna University and boasts of the maximum doctorates on roll.
DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY:
Chemistry is present everywhere in our daily life. But most of us do not recognize the real involvement of Chemistry in our lives. The Department, headed by Dr. S. Bharathi and her dedicated and qualified faculty, provide the students with the necessary insight they must have to learn the marvels of Chemistry.
The faculty of Chemistry also handle Environmental Science that teaches today’s generation the need to understand and help our environment to keep us healthy and preserve our mother earth for future generations.
Laboratory work is an essential element in pupil learning which cannot be replaced by other approaches. The Department has a well equipped laboratory which provides a positive contribution to understanding Chemistry.
