It is my proud privilege to be the Head of BSH Department at KIT’s College of Engineering (Autonomous), Kolhapur. Whenever people look at a tall building they always tend to see its top; in turn base gets neglected which is the actual balance of the building. Yes, first year of engineering is the base and we at BSH department strengthen that base. Being a ‘foundation stone’ of engineering academics, the department of Basic Sciences and Humanities of the institute is well equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure, highly qualified (09 PhD holders; 05 PhD Pursuing) and dedicated faculty and staff and learner centric teaching-learning academics. Around 700 students, 10 divisions, 4 sub departments, (Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, English and Communication Skills) is brief introduction of the department. The aim of the department is to mould students and start their journey as professional engineers.
We take utmost care of the newly admitted students as they are at transition period from schooling to college life. To help them in getting adapted to the change various activities/programmes such as career awareness and orientation programmes, mentorship, continuous assessment, various competitions, study tour, parents meet are conducted.
All the faculty, staff and first year students are much privileged to have newly constructed floor with 10 smart classrooms, all newly set up labs of Chemistry, Physic,Digital Language lab, APM, Computer Aided Engineering Drawing, Computer Programming, and APM exclusively devoted for first year academics. We are grateful to the Management of KIT for providing this facility realizing the need of the time.
