Introduced in 1967 as a General course and later upgraded into Honours course in 2002, the department is managed by the duly qualified and experienced teachers (7) to serve the interest of the students. The department deploys novel teaching techniques ranging from the traditional to the audio-visual to help the students to cope with the changing curriculum. Apart from regular class teaching students are privileged to access the upgraded laboratory and the reasonably well-stocked departmental library. Students are also encouraged to organize seminars and publish wall-magazine. Once they complete graduation they move up for higher studies and join R&D related industries.
