The state of the art laboratory facilities in the department enable the students to innovate on the lines of their technical learning in the classroom. The students are motivated to organize symposiums and seminars to hone their organizing and leadership skills. There is motivation for the faculty members as well. The department helps and encourages the faculty members to take up research programs, on account of which almost all the staff members are doing their research.
