Besides, the Department of Science and Humanities is also focus on bridging the academic gap between the school and collegiate education.
- To train and develop the scientific attitude towards engineering education to achieve academic excellence in their higher semesters.
- To introduce innovative learning techniques to make them easier to follow their course work in higher semesters in their career in BE and B.Tech.
- To make them understand the importance of Basic Sciences and develop an interest in learning and practicing.
- Engineering and Technology for their better performance in the competitive world with their acquitted knowledge from Rathinam Technical Campus.
- Applied DST Inspire program for the benefit of School Children in and around Coimbatore - Budget 10 lacs.
- Association of English Speaking Culture and introduction of Moodle for the benefit of First year students.
- Two major research proposals one to DST SERB with a budget of Rs.25 lacs and one to DST SERC with a budget of 20 lacs.
- Research Seminar Schedule in the Department for the benefit of faculty.
The main objective of conducting laboratory in Physics is to make the student to analyze the Physical Principle involved in the device and also to allow the student to relate the Principle to new applications. Physics, the fundamental building block of all disciplines of Engineering has a pivotal role in the development of engineering solutions to contemporary problems in the physical sciences by applying fundamental principles. It is not confined to a particular discipline of Engineering but a thread weaved through the whole technological domain. Engineering Physics provide a thorough grounding in the realm of Modern Optics, Quantum Physics, Superconductivity, Acoustics, Crystallography, Semiconductor physics and Nanotechnology. There are around title experiments in which areas of optics, mechanics to electronics are covered, by which the student gets nurtured to all the branches of engineering. The performance of these experiments makes the student to think in an innovative manner and also improve these creative skills which are very essential in Engineering.

Chemistry is one subject which gives adequate knowledge about the applications involved in the aerospace, mechanical, environmental and other engineering fields. Knowledge of chemistry plays a vital role in engineering profession enabling the potential engineers to understand and to perform successfully while working on multidisciplinary tasks. It serves to provide strong foundation in Applied Chemistry which in turn serves as a baseline for all Engineering streams. The main objective of the department is to develop the necessary theoretical and practical aspects required for understanding intricacies of the subject and also give adequate exposure to the applied chemistry aspects in different disciplines of engineering. Our faculty educates the engineering students with all necessary concepts related to chemistry and develops a scientific attitude by means of distinguishing, analyzing and solving various engineering problems. We are training the students to develop their experimental skills and important practical knowledge in engineering by providing sophisticated chemistry laboratory. The department has highly qualified and dedicated faculty members with Two Doctorates in various specialized areas of Chemistry. The department has a well established laboratory to accommodate sixty students at a time for Engineering Chemistry Lab Class. All the instruments used by First year students are the state of art and a good number of sophisticated instruments.
