The three year B.Sc Applied science programme offered by department, since 1971, well-reputed and is designed to expose students to all important branches of Science. New Curriculam and Syllabus are in place for the B.Sc Applied Science programme from June 2018 onwards. Core theory and laboratory courses are offered during the first five semesters and electives cum highly specialized courses in the sixth semester. The core theory and laboratory courses are designed to expose the students to fundamental theory and practical knowledge in all the areas of Science. Further, the department aims to provide opportunities to all the students to get placement in well-recognized Core Industries, Science Laboratories and in Software Industries. In addition, the department promotes students to do research in High Performance Institutions such as IITs, IISc., NITs and other reputed Universities in India an Abroad.


The alumni will build and uphold the reputation of the department as a premier teaching and research establishment and attract young talent through the success of their own endeavors.


To produce graduates who will specialize in one of the basic sciences namely Physics, Chemistry or Mathematics and Computer programming, acquire enough working knowledge of the other ancillary sciences and have an exposure to engineering practices and research methodologies in order to enable them to engage in life-long learning and thereby become versatile practitioners or
researchers in their chosen fields.
