To enable the student to effectively communicate basic designs through graphical representations as per standards.


  • Introduce students to some basic tools in Mathematics which are useful in modelling and analysing physical phenomena involving continuous changes of variables
  • The differential and integral calculus of functions of one or more variables have vast range of applications across all branches of engineering.
  • Provides basic training in plotting and visualising graphs of functions and intuitively understanding their properties

Course Objectives:

The purpose of this course is:-
1. To have an increased awareness among students on issues in areas of sustainability
2. To have an insight into global environmental issues
3. To establish a clear understanding of the role and impact of various aspects of engineering and engineering decisions on environmental, societal, and economic problems.

Expected outcome:

The student will be
• Able to appreciate and explain the different types of environmental pollution problems and their sustainable solutions
• Able to apply the concepts of sustainability in their respective area of specialization


         Most of the engineering disciplines are rooted in Physics. In fact a good engineer is more or less an applied physicist. This course is designed to provide a bridge to the world of technology from the basics of science and to equip the students with skills in scientific inquiry , problem solving and laboratory techniques.
