The physical infrastructure is one of the vital components that made teaching learning an enriching experience. Maintenance of all Physical, Academic and Sports facilities of the college is very important for ensuring effective teaching learning system. The following procedures established for maintaining and utilizing these services.
1. Laboratories and Computers:
There are in-charges, responsible for maintaining and utilizing the laboratories. There are situations where the syllabi are revised which results in adding some new experiments in various lab subjects and the Lab in-charges shall prepare the list of equipment or software to be procured at least one semester ahead. Some of the laboratories have excess number of lab setups when compared to the requirement and if there is any set up failure the students will not suffer.
Each Laboratory has one Lab Assistant and the No. of sessions that they have to handle per week are limited to 8 – 9 sessions out of 12 sessions available per week. This is helping the Lab Assistants to keep all the lab facilities to be in proper condition. The equipment suppliers give warranty for 1 – 3 years and after expiry of warranty period if any trouble arises either the suppliers or other service providers are requested to attend to the same. It is a practice in the college to thoroughly check with regard to the performance of each of the experimental setups twice in a year during the semester breaks. The college is providing the facility of purchase of enough spares so that the Lab in-charges can change any component which fails by drawing from the stock. Stock registers are maintained for each of the Laboratories so that enough spares are available and stock is verified in regular intervals.
It is fully automated (computerized) for issue/circulation and access of library resources. The library has an archives section. The Library has a committee headed by a Dean and one representative from each department. They meet whenever required and discuss about the new books required for the Library and also to purchase new editions of important books. They also suggest subscription to new journals whenever required. The college has introduced a Book Lending Scheme which is helping the students who have all the text books required in a semester at a very reasonable Book lending fee. Enough provision is made by the college for purchase of new books and also for subscribing to new journals. SC / ST students are given the facility to borrow more No. of books when compared to others.
