The first in-house symposium of the department was held from January 27-28, 2016. The event was organised by an active team of students with active support from faculty members. About 25 oral papers and about 30 posters were presented by the students of the department in various sessions in IHS-2016, which were chaired by the faculty of the department. IHS gives a platform to the students of the department to showcase their research work in front of their colleagues and faculties and gain useful insights to progress ahead. A cultural night was also organised which included performances from students and faculties. There is a plan to make this a regular eventm of the department.
