H & S Laboratories


The Engineering Physics Laboratory is one of the important laboratories of the department. It enables students to understand practically the fundamentals of theory through a vast range of experiments. Experiments are conducted in the laboratory with the aim of making students effectively use mathematical, scientific, and modern engineering tools in the practice of their professions. The laboratory is equipped with latest instruments and peripherals are made freely available to the students. Apart from the basic experiments, Engineering Physics Lab has a separate Dark room for performing Holography and other laser optics related experiments. Major equipment like He-Ne Laser, Michelson Interferometer and spectrometer are some of the main features of the lab.
The basic focus in the Engineering Physics Laboratory is to develop scientific temper and encourage students to innovate in diverse technical areas for better understanding of technical and engineering problems.

The Engineering Chemistry Laboratory has been designed to provide students with a basic understanding of the chemistry that may be required by engineers in the course of their careers. The laboratory is equipped with Spectrometers, Conductivity meters, Colorimeters, pH meters, BOD Incubator, Flame photometers, etc., to familiarize students with a variety of methods used to study matter from the molecular perspective. Various experiments cover the analysis of water (acidity, residual chlorine, hardness, BOD, COD measurements); spectroscopic studies of molecules; synthesis of organic polymers and chromatographic studies, etc.

The basic aim of the experiments conducted in the Laboratory is to train the students as both scientists and engineers in order to enhance their problem solving abilities and mould them into successful professionals.

Engineering students are generally found to be proficient in their technical subjects, but some of them are found wanting in the area of communication skills.

The ELCS Lab in the first year and AECS Lab in the third year aim to improve the proficiency of students in communication skills. The language lab focuses on computer aided multi-media instruction and language acquisition to enable students to learn better pronunciation through stress on word accent, intonation, and rhythm in the first year through the ELCS Lab; and in the third year, through the AECS Lab, students learn to use language effectively to face interviews, group discussions, public speaking, and to initiate students into greater use of the computer in resume preparation, report writing, format making, etc.

With better communication skills, students stand a better chance to get good placements and handle tough challenges that they might encounter in their professional lives.
