Message of the H. O. D.

Mr. Debajyoti BanerjeeOther than classroom teaching, our department engages itself in organising educational tours and interactive students seminars and encourages students for participating in informal academic discussions. We look forward to conduct some syllabus related field studies by the students, which will enhance their understanding of the subject matter. The department has a good stock of books in the seminar library which really helps the students in their academic pursuits and in enriching their knowledge base.
