Department of I Year is an important supporting wing to all engineering branches. The deportment consists of well experienced faculty members. The department puts concerted efforts to provide necessary guidance and a sense of directions to all the students of I Year B.Tech. It is the department of Basic Sciences, Life skills and faculty from CSE & Mechanical Engg. Specialization to impart I Year course workfor for 840 students every year. It consists of 4 sections of ECE, 2 sections of EEE, 4 sections of CSE, 2 sections of CIVIL and 2 sections of MECHANICAL with adequate facilities and sophisticated infrastructure, the department is completely well equipped to meet the contemporary needs of the industry. Well furnished labs with skilled and experienced lab assistants is one of the assets of the department. Seminars, Workshops and Technical Symposia are conducted in the department to keep faculty and students updated with latest developments in various technologies. The motto of our department is, to find satisfaction in imparting high quality education by well qualified and experienced faculty.
A sound of knowledge of mathematics is considered a prerequisite for any Engineering professional to be successful in his chosen field. Physics and Chemistry are considered the basic sciences from which all Engineering braches have evolved. In today’s world of sophisticated technology, it is imperative for every literate especially for engineering professional to have an understanding of the environmental hazards leading to the development of eco- friendly technologies. Insights into modern management practices provide an edge for all engineering professionals in becoming successful entrepreneurs. Growing importance of English as a tool for global communication has placed a lot of emphasis on training the students in this area. Here communication has placed a lot of emphasis on training the students in this area. Here students of all branches are exposed to language communication skills in English, Science like of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, computing Skills, Engineering Drawing, Environmental Sciences & Management science. The students are also exposed to engineering Physics & Chemistry laboratories. English language communication skills laboratory and audio visual centre, builds the communication skills of all the students passing out.
The Department of I year has well qualified, experienced and committed faculty members holding M.Sc,M.A,M.Com, M.tech, M.Phil & Ph.D Degrees. The students admitted into B.Tech. 1st year are of various levels of back ground. Some students are with a poor, socio economic back ground and others with moderate or rich background. Some students are with rural back ground, studied in local language (Telugu) as their medium of instruction till 12th class (10+2 level), which make them difficult to understand English. All the Subjects being taught at 1st year level, adequate efforts are put in by the faculty to teach all the students to same level. Wherever required, course materials in the form of (running) notes are given in the classes by the concerned faculty. The success rate of the students at the end/final exams is very satisfactory during recent years. Extra class tests are conducted apart from regular curriculum. Adequate library & laboratory facilities are available. Repetition facilities are also extended to the students for better practice in the laboratory experiments in every academic year. When required, personal counseling is given to the students with poor attendance and academic back ground in every academic year. Occasionally teachers are permitted to attend seminars, conferences, workshops etc., for improvement of professional skills.
