Basic Sciences are the foundation of all engineering disciplines. The contribution of basic sciences to the cultural and economic welfare of mankind has been extensive throughout the ages. The basic sciences is an exciting intellectual adventure that inspires young people and expands the frontiers of knowledge about the nature. These basic sciences generate fundamental knowledge needed for the future technological advances that will continue to drive the economic engines of the world.
Chemical is the mother of Chemical Engineering. Applied and Analytical Chemistry provides basis for many types of research analysis. The chemists and chemical engineers provide economical answers to clean-up yesterdays waste and prevent tomorrow's pollution.
Physics extends and enhances our understanding of other disciplines, such as Earth, Agricultural, Chemical, Biological Sciences, Astronomy and Cosmology - all being the subjects of substantial importance to people from all walks of life. Many of the branches of Physics have developed into engineering or technology. These branches are Classical Mechanics, Hydrodynamics, Aerodynamics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Optics, Acoustics, Electricity and Magnetism, Electronics and Nuclear Engineering.
Mathematics is the universal language of Engineering & science. Mathematics is present in all aspects of Engineering. Mathematics is an ancient disciplinmee which has formed the basis for all other sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and many other scientific pursuits are unimaginable today without Mathematics. A good knowledge of Mathematics is a must for all engineers. When the engineers enter the field of research and development, mathematics becomes a necessity.
The department of basic sciences has two Ph.Ds, one in mathematics, the other in chemistry and eight M.Sc's, having sound knowledge and experience of research, industry and teaching.
