Department of Basic Sciences & Humanities

Silicon Institute of Technology established the Department of Basic Sciences and Humanities (BSH), the groundwork of all engineering education, in 2001, to provide a strong foundation in different basic sciences, enhance professional communication skills and instill human values in the students across various engineering programs.

The Department offers courses on Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Management, Economics, Environmental Science and Engineering and English Communication and Soft Skills.

Specific courses provide diverse learning experiences through interactive teaching-learning processes, preparing them for rewarding careers, supporting their personal development, and fostering their interests and contribution towards social progress.

The Department of BSH is approved by AICTE.


To become a department with an impetus towards research-oriented academics while strengthening the essential fundamentals of science, mathematics, humanities & engineering studies.


To work towards the holistic development of pupils in areas of both academics and life skills, by imparting in-depth knowledge of subjects with ethical considerations in mind,in order to meet the challenges of society.

All first year students



Courses offered in all four years
