ABOUT THE Basic science DEPARTMENT

Science is the basis for all the branches of Engineering discipline and the Basic Science Department stands as the main supportive department of SKIT. As a fundamental department, it supports all branches of Engineering; emphasis is laid on basics of Science and Engineering.

The Basic Science Department mainly comprises of Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Physics and Engineering Chemistry which form the main pillars of the Engineering programme. The Basic Science Department has well qualified, experienced and highly motivated faculties. The department has got a good infrastructure with well-equipped spacious laboratories. The department provides outstanding teaching to the students to excel in academics. As prescribed by the VTU, the department conducts Induction Program for the First year students which give them the college bird’s eye view about various dimensions of Engineering and the career opportunities for their future. The program also makes them to get acquaint with the environment of the college.

Many faculty members hold doctorates from reputed Universities across India and few are pursuing research in multi-disciplinary areas. The department is granted with several funding agencies for pursuing the research work. The department has been working towards fulfilling its mission through a synergistic combination of teaching and research.

Vision

To provide quality basic education and training in Basic Science.

Mission

  • To be a dynamic and competitive center of excellence in learning, teaching and research in Basic Science to ensure that the technical needs of students are addressed.
  • Aiming for perfection and making them into better techniques.

Course Outcomes:

Faculties frame the Course outcome by using the four components: Action, Knowledge, Condition, benchmark and shall focus on what the student should know and realistically be able to do by the end of the course.

  • 1. Action: Choose the Action verb required for learning based on the level, this measures the student ability in demonstrating the concept which is required (Apply, Analyze, . . . .).
  • 2. Knowledge: The Knowledge and its level required to reach/achieve the concept, some of the concepts required are specific to the domain knowledge.
  • 3. Conditions: what are the conditions on which the above knowledge specified is achieved / or the conditions under which the operations happen to achieve the above said knowledge.
  • 4. Bench mark: To characterize the acceptability levels of performing the action. Bench mark methods are specified for the Optional element.

Programme Outcomes:

Engineering Graduates will be able to:

  • PO1: Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
  • PO2: Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
  • PO3: Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • PO4: Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
  • PO5: Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  • PO6: The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  • PO7: Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
  • PO8: Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  • PO9: Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
  • PO10: Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • PO11: Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  • PO12: Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
