We emphasize on providing students the much-needed experiences that enable them to face the opportunities and challenges of today’s changing world. In this effort, we always prepare ourselves to provide excellence in teaching and research through a continuous improvement process.

We have made great strides towards creating learner-centric, research-intensive, multidisciplinary academic ecosystem.

Research scholars who are pursuing their doctoral degree enjoy working with people having diverse backgrounds and gain deeper insight into specific areas of their specialization through uniquely designed innovation- focused training.

Social challenges that we face as a global society today are complex, but our understanding of its intricacies has grown and continues to grow. Our school focuses on the interaction among social sciences, management, engineering, and science & technology that altogether comprise the solution- driven approach in addressing real-world problems. Since its inception, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences has carved a niche for itself as a multi- dimensional establishment. The school is currently restructuring into new facilities.
