The department of Science and Humanities at JBIET offers the bridge courses in English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Managerial Economics & Financial Analysis and Environmental science that help the engineering freshmen get attuned to the specialized engineering domains. In addition, the department coordinates a smoother transition of our novice engineering aspirants from the academic setting they experienced at 10 + 2 level to the study ambience they will encounter in their undergraduate Engineering and Technology course. As an ancillary department that supports the conduct of specialized courses, offered in its domain, as a part of the curricula of other main branches of engineering the department acquires a multi-disciplinary nature and so the faculty belongs to different disciplines namely, English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Managements Studies and Environmental Sciences. The Admissions and the Academic work of all the first years are taken care by the H&S department.
The department shields the responsibility of the consolidation of attendance and the sessional marks of the first years and the maintenance of the Parent-Institution communications for the welfare of the students. The members of the faculty regularly attend seminars and workshops and training programs on various engineering subjects. Most of them are associated with scientific bodies striving for the professional and intellectual development of their fellow faculty members. The faculty has addressed itself to the need to orient the students towards the ultimate goal of relating their knowledge to the reality of life situations.
