The Department of Applied Science and Humanities, (or ASHU), is one of the oldest departments in GNIT, being present from the inception of the institute in 2003, and some of the faculty members in the Dept were the earliest teachers to join the institute. It is also the Dept with the largest student presence, as the entire student body in B. Tech 1 st Year is under its provenance. This student body is always more than 400 strong making ASHU the most populous Dept in numbers. The Dept also excels by reason of attracting dedicated and talented teachers and staff, who are research-active, conscientious, and continually strive to bring the Dept closer to an approximation of its goals and long-cherished objectives.
