The Department of Science and Humanities, RATHINAM TECHNICAL CAMPUS offers Science and Humanities Courses as prescribed by the curriculum of Anna University in the 1st year of the engineering programme and comprise four discipline English, Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry. The objective of the department is to provide value-based education to budding scientists and engineers so that they can become professionals on the forte of sciences. Moreover, the Department is committed to serving the needs of various branches of engineering by fostering an effective teaching and learning environment. Well-spaced Physics and Chemistry Laboratories equipped with adequate instruments add value to the basic science department.

The department of Science and Humanities believes firmly that discipline is the basis of character and success builds on character. The department endeavours to make success a habit for the freshman engineer. Along with a strong foundation in basic sciences necessary for their engineering pursuit, to realize the departmental objectives practically, the department plays an active role in conducting soft skills, Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Aptitude, Critical Reading, and Problem-Solving training classes, to the student community through the finishing school program which is spread over all the four years of the B. Tech programmes.


To be a leading and path-breaking institution in a multi-disciplinary Institution in multi-disciplinary education, research and industry-related development for meeting the challenges of New India.


M1 Provide quality Engineering Education, Foster Research and Development; inculcate innovation in Engineering and Technology through state-of-the-art infrastructure.

M2 Nurture young men and women capable of assuming leadership roles in society for the betterment of the country.

M3 Collaborate with industry, government organizations, and society for curriculum Alignment and focused relevant outreach activities.

  • To prepare students by introducing them to the skills, habits, and positive attitudes that lead to success through the induction programme.
  • To give a common starting point to all the students by addressing varying weaknesses of incoming students with diverse backgrounds through bridge courses.
  • To provide a solid foundation in mathematical and scientific fundamentals necessary for understanding engineering concepts.
  • To develop the communicative, managerial, analytical, quantitative, creative skills and sportsmanship of the students with a sharp focus on environmental issues and professional ethics.
  • To produce an engineer with humanness with universal human values who is willing to learn, perform, excel, innovate and face the challenges of the globalized competitive professional environment successfully.

The Chemistry Laboratory is spacious, well-equipped, and air-conditioned. Keeping in view the recent developments in science and the present needs in industries, the Chemical Laboratory Technology program has been framed so that future Engineers acquire practical laboratory techniques as well as applied theoretical principles necessary for a successful career in today’s chemical industry.


The Chemistry lab is equipped with a Digital pH meter, Spectrophotometer, Flame Photometer, Conductivity Meter, Hot Air Oven, and Hot Plate.


The Physics Laboratory is spacious, well-equipped, and air-conditioned. A separate dark room is attached for the conduct of optics experiments. All the experiments are designed to correlate theoretical knowledge with practical applications. Practical oriented difficult experiments are also demonstrated to the students for a better understanding of the concepts.


The Physics lab is equipped with the Traveling Microscope, Lee’s disc apparatus, Energy Bandgap apparatus, Spectrometer, Laser Source, Fiber Optic Trainer, Air Wedge apparatus, and Ultrasonic Interferometer.


Rathinam Technical Campus is proud to own Digital English Language Lab-created on our own.    The course materials are getting executed by Rathinam Learning Hub and since then used vastly with more advanced features to benefit the learning crowd.  The features are easily accessible on Mobile too.  The salient feature of this Digital English Language Lab is focusing on Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening Skills, and overall enhancement of the Language Skills. Digital English Language Lab is currently getting used for 2nd-year and 3rd-year Engineer Students as per Anna University Syllabus for both odd and even semesters.
