The aim of the chemistry department at Silicon Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar is to encourage the highest standards of excellence in developing and applying knowledge of chemistry and chemical engineering to the products and processes of industry; to promote the development of chemical sciences and technology in both academic institutions and in industry; to improve the qualifications and usefulness of chemists and chemical engineers through high standards of professional ethics, education and attainment; to increase the diffusion of chemical knowledge through its meetings, professional contacts, reports, papers, discussions and publications, thereby fostering public welfare and education; to encourage the mutual recognition of need and interest for the complete spectrum of chemical interests, from fundamental research to pragmatic technology.
Communicative English as a subject is taught to all first year and second year students of Silicon Institute of Technology. Operating under the Basic Sciences and Humanities Department it has eight fulltime teachers who teach theory and laboratory classes. While the theory classes are centred on the fundamentals of communication in English, the lab classes focus on developing communication skills and combining communication and personality development.
The Environmental Engineering (and Safety) courses address the core issues of the subject including ecosystems , nutrient cycles, emerging issues with global climatic changes, solids and hazardous waste management and industrial safety. Noise pollution, water and wastewater treatment techniques are discussed, along with air pollution, meteorology, greenhouse gases and criteria pollutants. Solids waste generation, treatment and transportation are covered,as is hazardous waste generation and treatment. Some Indian , US and European environmental laws are reviewed, including occupational safety and health acts. Accidents and safety aspects of various industries with particular reference to electrical safety, fire safety and handling of hydrocarbons and corrosive substances are discussed.
Engineering physics is one of the most important disciplines in order to develop an understanding of technology. The syllabus in Physics is designed in such a way that they are interdisciplinary in nature covering areas such as classical physics, quantum physics, material properties, semiconductor devices etc. Department is having all sorts of expertise and experience to provide better teaching and guidance to the students.
Mechanic s and Thermodynamics form part of the core mechanical engineering courses offered by the department, that is compulsory for all B.Tech. students. These courses lay the foundation for other courses mandated by individual departments later on in the program. Mechanics deals with the theory and problems of Statics and Dynamics for point masses and rigid solid bodies, in a variety of engineering scenarios. Thermodynamics deals with Energy and its useful conversion to work in industrial settings like thermal power plants. The Fluid Mechanics course deals with the problems of Fluid Statics and Fluid Dynamics, and its applications to fluid motive devices. Fundamental concepts in all these courses are developed from conservation equations and laws, and their applicability is demonstrated by solving problems in various mechanical, civil and chemical engineering settings.
Subjects taught in the MCA programme:
- 1. Engineering Economics and Costing
- 2. Financial Accounting
- 3. Quantitative Techniques
- 4. Operational Research
- 5. Discrete Mathematics
- 6. Numerical Methods
- 7. Engineering Probability Statistics
- 8. Communicative English
- 9. Business Communication in English
- 10. Communication and interpersonal skills for corporate readiness
The department of BSH being multidisciplinary oriented imparts training on fundamental management subjects like Economics and Costing, Organisational Behaviour, Principles of Management, Marketing Management, Entrepreneurship Development and Financial Accounting. These studies are important in today’s rapidly changing world of business and organisation. The Silicon technocrats are trained well to face the challenges of the new millennium.
Mathematics is an integral part of the engineering study. There are several compulsory subjects and electives as well in UG and PG level program of each discipline. Teaching these subjects and fulfilling the further mathematical needs of students for their project activities is the primary objective of the stream. The department possesses adequate expertise and experience to handle mathematical subjects of all nature for all disciplines.
Subjects taught in M.Tech programme:
1. Graph Theory
