Due to lack of Staff and infrastructure facilities, the department is still lagging far behind the quality products as expected. Still, we are working hard to yield good results.
The vision of our department is to make students to grow in their chosen professions and make them as productive citizens. Also, encourage students to develope their social activities.

In our department, we take a rule in mentoring the students. We address their wants and needs timely. Listen to their request and honor those requests. We encourage our students. Include them in every meeting and activity in our department and college. We allow them to ask any question and try to solve their question. As our department has only two faculties so the students are divided into two groups and each faculty mentoring their respective group.
