Mr. Krishnarao P. Chopade Associate Professor & HOD The Department of General Engineering was established in the year 1984. Being the first Engineering College of D.Y.Patil Group in Kolhapur, it became the heart of the city and very soon got popularity in the Western Maharashtra. The Department of General Engineering comprises of Engineering Mathematics, Engineering Physics, Engineering Chemistry and Professional Communication. From its inception to the present, Department of General Engineering has evolved and grown in several directions. From last few years, there have been striking changes in terms of faculty recruitment, research output which will surely enable for the future growth of the department. Engineering Mathematics plays an important role in formulating engineering problems into a mathematical model and providing solutions to them. Engineering Physics is the root of all engineering branches. It correlates nanotechnology, mechanics, electronics, computer science, civil etc. Engineering Chemistry is the basic subject to analyse the molecular structure of the compound. It creates bond length with all engineering branches. The subject of Professional Communication introduces some fundamental theoretical concepts as grammar, phonology and differences between verbal and non-verbal communication. It also focuses on LSRW skills, soft skills, debate, group discussion which help for the overall development of the student. The General Engineering Department Laboratories like Physics, Chemistry and Professional Communication are fully equipped and well furnished.
