About the Department

The Department of Science and Humanities at Akshaya College of Engineering and Technology has been an integral part of the institution since its inception. The department is dedicated to imparting teaching and promoting the practical aspects of Physical Science and Humanities. It offers first-year courses for all department students, focusing on subjects like English, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. The department aims to lay a strong foundation in these fundamental areas to make engineering streams more accessible to students. By bringing a human touch to technology, it strives to assist engineers in developing themselves within the social context. With a mission to build a solid foundation as part of engineering education, the department plays a unique and distinctive role where the ethos of science and technology prevails.
