Tamil Marabu
This course provides an opportunity for students who have Tamil as their mother tongue and for students from other states to have multifold outcomes. Learning in the mother tongue is a key factor for inclusion and quality learning, and it also improves learning outcomes and academic performance. This is crucial, for appreciation of Tamil as a language and as a culture. It fosters mutual understanding and respect for one another and helps preserve the wealth of cultural and traditional heritage that is embedded in Tamil language around the world.
Course Objectives
The objective of this course is to enable the student to

  • Appreciate Tamil art, culture and literature
  • Learn the history and culture of Tamil language
  • Relate to various art forms and their relevance to development
  • Acknowledge the rich heritage and significant achievements of the Tamilians
  • Appreciate the contribution of Tamilians to nation building


Basic Mathematics
Mathematics develops analytical reasoning and critical thinking. It is an integral part of core engineering subjects. It helps to perform calculations and is used to create, test and analyze engineering models. The knowledge of Mathematics is compulsory for a better understanding of engineering and science subjects. This course is designed to give comprehensive coverage at an introductory level to Matrices, Determinants, Trigonometry, Vector Algebra, Statistical Measures and Probability.
Course Objectives
The objective of this course is to enable the students to

  • acquire knowledge in basics of matrices and determinants.
  • explain the trigonometric processes involved in engineering applications.
  • define the essential elements to denote vectors in engineering applications.
  • summarize the methods of collecting, analyzing, interpreting and presenting
  • empirical data.
  • explain the principal concepts about probability.

Basic Physics
Any technological innovation happens through a firm understanding of basic science. Knowing and developing proper understanding of the scientific principles behind every technological gadget or instrument is inevitable to a polytechnic student. This course systematically introduces the laws of physics which gives correct perspectives of dealing with technology and its societal uses.
Course Objectives
The objective of this course is to enable the student to

  • Outline the definitions of physical quantities, units, dimensions and error analysis
  • Explain the basics of vectors, forces and its vectorial properties
  • State Newton’s laws and its application into day-to-day life and covers basics of
  • periodic motion
  • Describe the elastic properties of any solid material
  • Explain the heat, work, modes of heat transfer, laws of thermodynamics

Basic Chemistry
Engineering is the application of the principles of basic science. The present syllabi of Basic Chemistry compiled for Diploma Engineering students restricts itself to certain limits, where it concentrates on basic concepts and useful applications viz. solution chemistry, surface chemistry, engineering polymeric materials like plastics, rubbers and electrochemistry, types of battery, preventions of corrosion. Enriching social awareness is an important component of education, hence, environmental chemistry aspects like air pollution, solid waste management and green chemistry are also included.
Course Objectives
The objective of this course is to enable the student to

  • Outline the importance of acids, base pH Indicators with industrial applications.
  • Illustrate the adsorption properties of colloidal particles, catalyst and their
  • application.
  • Examine the engineering polymeric materials like rubber & plastics.
  • Explain about electrochemistry, electrochemical cells, batteries and to know about
  • corrosion and prevention.
  • Appreciate the importance of Environmental Chemistry.


Communicative English I
Introduction Language is a means of self-expression and one of the prime tools of communication. Communicative fluency augments one's personal, academic, social and professional life. The present syllabus focuses on four Communication Skills, viz. Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing and enables the students at the Diploma level to gain confidence and fluency in communication which in turn would enhance them to face their career commitments with globalized standards.
Course Objectives
The objective of this course is to enable the student to
1. Use English confidently for practical purposes across the curriculum.
2. Express ideas in clear and grammatically correct usage
3. Plan, organize and present ideas coherently using cohesive devices.
4. Analyze, interpret, infer and evaluate ideas and respond appropriately.
5. Enable learners to communicate effectively and appropriately in real-life situations.

Basic Workshop Practices
Basic Workshop Practices help to develop the technical hands-on skills required by the technicians working in various Engineering sectors. This course intends to impart the basics of hand tools and their uses in different sections of manufacturing. The topics covered are based on the syllabus for diploma studies in Engineering. The course is planned to include basic practical experience in Fitting, Wiring and Plumbing. The courses are arranged in sequence, that starts from the basic concepts on safety rules followed in Industries, Dimensioning system, Basic Measuring instruments & basic tools used for Manufacturingprocesses. In this course, it is expected that the students would be able to get workshop experience, which helps to build an understanding of the complexity of the industrial job and the skills requirement of the jobs.
Course Objectives
The objective of this course is to enable the student to
1. Understand the importance of safety & Precautions in Industries.
2. Understand and practice the 5S system in Industries.
3. Identify suitable marking and measuring tools for materials.
4. Read the drawing and understand the dimensioning system.
5. Practical skills on Fitting, Plumbing & Wiring trades.

Digital Workplace Skills
Being able to embrace new technology in the workplace helps to streamline working processes. Digital workplace skills provide knowledge for sharing and collaboration in many new and effective ways. It is used in a connected digital environment providing access to share, present, and report information effectively and efficiently to increase productivity in a safe & secure environment.
Course Objectives
The objective of this course is to enable the student to
1. Introduce the basics of computer hardware, operating systems, and Internet usage.
2. Explore various office productivity tools and text processing.
3. Apply various information analysis tools with the help of spreadsheets.
4. Understand the effective presentation of information.
5. Identify the communication and security tools for information protection.

Basic English for Employability
Course Objectives
This course has two parts. A 20-hour exercise-based course and 40-hour face-to-face course.
The aim of the face-to-face course is to help develop their English language, communicative and allied skills through a series of reading, listening, grammar, speaking and topical lessons. The methodology through which the lessons are facilitated provide more opportunities for the learners to use the language they have acquired with constant monitoring and feedback.The exercise-based course is a series of lessons which will be monitored by the faculty of the college. Each lesson focuses on reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary.
