SWOC Analysis
Strengths Weaknesses

•Highly qualified and very much dedicated teachers.

•Very good coordination amongst the teachers and the non-teaching staff.

•Regular class tests are conducted for the assessment of students.

•Interaction with students beyond class hours to help them to overcome any difficulties they face in the class.

•Tutorial classes are taken on regular basis to help the less bright students.

•Lack of departmental library

•Inadequacy of space

• Lack of motivated students.

Opportunities Threats

•Regular counselling of under-privileged students of economically backward families and extending help if necessary.

•Encouraging students to take up e-courses taken by internationally famous professors so that they have a glimpse of teaching at Oxford and Cambridge

• Interaction with outgoing students to give them an idea of world class research Institutes and other work opportunities which help them to plan their future.

•All our weaknesses do not stop us from aspiring for better performance of our students and it is not always that we do not get results.

•The inadequacy of space does not stop us from giving our students quality laboratory facilities which are very much appreciated by the students.

Future Plan

•Extension, Renovation and up gradation of laboratories and multiplication of laboratory instruments

• Setting up of a research wing to do some research of modern interest.
