Basic Sciences

Department of Chemistry


The Department of Chemistry started in the academic year 2001 and is handling Applied Chemistry (theory & practical) for classes of I & II semester Engineering (all branches). The department has a well equipped lab with latest instruments to conduct the experiments as prescribed by VTU. The curriculum integrates core of chemistry with a body of engineering in a manner that allows chemical knowledge to be put into practice.



The Department of Chemistry has well furnished state of the art laboratory facilities Physics to cater to the needs of undergraduate engineering students.

Department of Mathematics



The Department of Mathematics started in the academic year 2001 and is handling Math subjects for classes of I, II, III & IV semester engineering (all branches). The department conducts courses on Engineering Mathematics, Discrete Mathematics, Graph Theory and Combinatorics, Numerical Methods and Linear Algebra for UG and PG classes. Bridge courses are conducted for Diploma Students to bring them up to speed with the subject.

The department regularly conducts workshops and faculty development programs to enhance the knowledge pertaining to applications of Mathematics and provide major thrust and motivation to students and faculty.

Department of Physics



India has given lot of impetus for the development of Science and technology since ancient time. We find enough evidence for this in our religious texts, Vedas and Upanishads. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in his monumental work on World history describes India as the cradle of human civilization. Vedas have praised our country as ratnagarbhavasundara (a repository of gems). Our country not only has hidden in its womb precious gems and pearls but also has given birth to scientists, technocrats, doctors and academicians of highest merit. Science gives the ideas and technology crystallizes those ideas into a material form.


This is the relationship which exists between science and technology. Science extends its field from a very minute nucleon to a huge nebula. In CIT, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics departments work under the umbrella of the Department of Basic Sciences. The department was established along with the establishment of Channabasaveshwara Institute of Technology in the year 2001. Since its inception the department is imparting quality education in Physics to the students of the various core branches of engineering. The Department of Physics is currently headed by Dr. Shivaprakash. The Department currently has 04 well experienced and dedicated faculty members. Apart from teaching in a most understandable way the department also aims to make students industrious so that, later they can become fit enough to shoulder our country in the task of National Development. To their credit the faculty members of the department have number of quality publications in National and International journals.


The department has individual cabins and computers with internet facility for all faculty members. The department has state of the art laboratory facilities with experiment to student ratio 1:2 to conduct undergraduate level experiments in Engineering Physics and Applied Science. The library in the college has a rich collection of books and journals in Physics. Over 1500 books written by various authors are available in the library to quench the knowledge thirst of students and faculty members. The library has subscribed to several journals and has provided access to various E-resources in physics, which include:


    • Indian Journal of Pure and Applied Physics
    • Indian Journal of Radio and Space Physics
    • Indian Journal of Physics (Pramana)
    • International Journal of Material Science.
