Academic Programs

Our Teaching-Learning Methodology is interactive with judicious use of labs, library, technology and the environment. Group discussions, power point presentations, films, street plays, quiz, debates, elocutions, recitations, flipped classrooms, student led seminars, research work, multi-disciplinary approach and problem solving assessments are all integrated into the curriculum. This has enriched the process of learning and at the same time broken the monotony of “Frontal teaching”. We now follow the STEAM approach wherein we use Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. This enables us to engage students in experiential learning and become innovators, educators, leaders and learners of 21st century.
