India ranks third among the most attractive investment destinations for science and technology in the world. Some institutes like VIT are taking admission through VITEEE to ensure admission of quality science and technology students.
The Department of Science and technology studies is decided to research and teaching about science and technology in its social context, where the research examines science and technology both in contemporary societies and through historical investigations and their associated forms of knowledge, expertise, social organization, and controversy, this also includes interest in developing science and technology studies own knowledge production techniques methodology and interventions. The high quality with the multidisciplinary field of science and technology studies, including contributions from anthropology, sociology, history, philosophy, political science, educational science and communication studies.
Importance of Science
Science is a systematic way of acquiring knowledge about a particular field of study. Science helps us to gain knowledge, through an organized system of observation and experimentation. This system is used to describe different natural phenomena. The description is that of pure science, and biology, chemistry, physics, and Earth science are the basic fields of pure science. Technology can be defined as the products, tools, and processes used to accomplish tasks in daily life. According to the Use of Technology, technology is the application of science to solve a problem. The technology involves the application of engineering and applied sciences to solve the practical problems of human lives.
