Department Profile

It was constituted, among all other total twelve teaching departments, as a full-fledged department as per HBTI Society Bye-Laws in the year 1965.Initially, the Department was offering humanities courses such as literature and philosophy to B.Tech. Engineering and Technology students. Therefore, the department was popularly known as Humanities Department. Later on , as per the academic guidelines of the AICTE, besides the humanities courses, the Department started to offer a number of social science courses such as economics, industrial management, accounting & financial management etc. to B.Tech. & MCA students of different years. When HBTI was brought under the affiliation to UPTU, Lucknow in the year 2001, the courses and syllabus as prescribed and approved by the University for the Department to teach B.Tech. & MCA students were broadly stratified under the streams of English Language and Social Sciences. Besides offering various courses to B.Tech. & MCA students, the Department run Ph.D Programme in ‘’Management‘‘Economics’ subject. The Department was recognized as Ph.D research centre in Economics by CSJ University, Kanpur in the year 1998.In order to give an appropriate name to the department, we use to call it the ‘Department of Humanities and Social Sciences’(HSS), as the same exists in IITs.

Presently, the Department is running with three regular faculty members-one Professor two Associate Professor, three guest faculty members (lecturers) along with one research assistant, one L.D.C and two attendants. In total, the Department has ten members. The faculty members of the Department are highly qualified and more competent. The achievements of the faculty members are much attractive in the fields of research, Ph.D supervision, publications, participation in conferences, seminars, workshops and short-term refresher courses, organizing seminars, carrying research projects and participation in administrative and students’ extracurricular activities.
