Welcome to the Department of Home Science. If you are passionate enough to explore new avenues in career, I invite you to visit our programmes, offering a wide variety of core and elective courses, run by well qualified, dedicated and innovative faculty.
The undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes in the department, provide educational experience in higher learning and enhance the employability skills of the students by providing an exposure to research networks and partnerships of the department with various hospitals, institutions, industries and NGOs for hands-on experience to the students and opportunities for immediate placement as soon as they complete formal education.
We prefer that the students obtaining graduate and post graduate degrees from the department also have extra certificates and diplomas so that they are miles ahead in the competition when they plan to be a part of the workforce. Hence, the students have opportunities to enroll in the diploma courses along with the degree programmes.
The focus is not only to inculcate academic and research potentials but also provide the personality, life skill, and vocational training by motivating them to attend national and international conferences, seminars, symposia, and workshops.
The department encourages the students to get involved in the research at all levels and also present their research at the national and international level and get them published in the journals of a good repute.
The other thrust areas of the department are gender sensitization, reproductive health, women empowerment, women and child welfare and guidance and counseling. The knowledge in these areas is provided to the students, which is further disseminated in the community, hence, making them participate in the building of healthy society and nation.
Home Science is a field from where numerous entrepreneurs have emerged in the field of research and development. It holds an enormous capacity to develop more entrepreneurship ideas. The students who have flair for the same should surely join the department.
