FACILITIES

Library

Since everything cannot be taught in the class, certain portions are left self-study by the students and the library is being used effectively for this purpose. Since we encourage group learning by assigning different topics to various groups, these groups are allowed to use the library after the regular class hours in order to prepare notes on the particular topic for presentation before the other students. In the class schedule one hour every week is allocated for the students to visit the library exclusively for referring books, magazines and journals for any latest and interesting developments and inventions, prepare notes on that for making presentations before the students.

The students also use the library for developing the skills required for getting employment like communication skill, Mathematical Aptitude, Crisis Management, Problem Solving, Creative Thinking, etc., and for enhancing knowledge for appearing for competitive examination , etc., by referring to the concerned books available in the library.
