    First home todiversified HR in IndiaThe Department of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) is one of the first

    departments established from the very inception of IIT Kharagpur. Its primary objective

    was to provide value-based liberal education to budding scientists and engineers. With

    the passage of time, the department has further evolved with additional academic

    programs and responsibilities to meet the contemporary social and business challenges.

    Unlike the university departments, the Department of Humanities and Social Science

    (HSS) in the IIT system is unique in its diversity, The Department of HSS at IIT

    Kharagpur houses many disciplines such as English, Languages, Economics,

    Philosophy, Psychology, Human Resource Management and Sociology. The

    Department has been always actively engaged in teaching, research, training and

    outreach activities.

    The Department understands that it is not only its responsibility to generate new

    knowledge and skills but also to disseminate the same to a larger fraternity. It conducts

    about 12 programmes annually for the benefit of academicians, managers, and

    executives. It also engages in welfare activities and action research in and around IIT

    Kharagpur. The Department takes up research and consultancy projects from public and

    private agencies. The research conducted by the department is well-appreciated in India

    and abroad. The Department, on an average, produces at least 10 Ph.Ds and publishes

    about 30 papers in refereed journals annually. Some of the important events of the

    Department include the annual "Tagore Memorial Lecture" and frequent interactions

    with the industry and academic institutions through special lectures and workshops.

    The Tagore Memorial Lectures in past were delivered by eminent speakers like

    Professor Nissim Ezekiel, Soumendranath Tagore, V.V. John, J.V. Narliker, William

    Radice and Amitav Ghosh. The industry guest lectures saw participation from industry

    leaders such as H&M, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, Atlas Copco etc.

    The Department runs two programmes, a five-year Integrated M. Sc. in Economics and

    a two-year Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM). The qualifying exam

    for the M. Sc. programme is JEE and for the MHRM programme is CAT. The MHRM

    programme was started in 2010 and has replaced the earlier M.Tech. (HR) programme

    which existed since 1982. The curriculum has been redesigned and tailored to meet the

    requirements of the industry.
