Department Of Humanity And Social Sciences

About the department:

Over the years, it has been realized that a healthy balance between scientific skill and  human understanding is very important even for engineering students. The teaching of  humanities and social sciences (HSS) has been stressed for the overall development of the  students of technology. Students are exposed to different areas of study and thus enrich  their horizon of knowledge. This exposure enables them to face challenges and perform  their respective roles in life smoothly.

Right from the very beginning, the HSS Department in UIET has been offering core courses  in English, Industrial Economics and Industrial Management. The purpose of these courses is  to give overall views of these subjects as much is necessary for the engineering students.  English courses are designed in such a way so that students can present themselves  correctly and articulately in front of others. English is taught in the first semester while  courses in economics and management are offered in the second and fourth semester. The  study of economic trends helps the students to share their views in the context of both  Indian and global economy. Industrial Management course is designed to train the students  to be competent managers with respect to engineering problems. In a nutshell, these courses have been instrumental to the intellectual and social development of the UIET  students.
