Teaching, Learning And Evaluation

Curriculum for the program encompasses an effective proportion with regards to fundamental, core and elective subjects. The courses are based on a credit structure with 22-26 credit points per semester totaling to around 180 credit points over the entire four-year B.Tech. Program. Every course has assigned lectures, practical’s and tutorials as per requirement. Students also undergo compulsory technical project work in the 4th year, which, at times, leads them to venture out and experience the entrepreneurial spirit. The program course content is reviewed every year with industry inputs and participation. The school encourages students to learn through experiential mode along with classroom delivery. The delivery is very actively supported by Online Learning Portal System. The portal facilitates learning beyond classroom through YouTube and other online content available on the net as well as sharing of subject materials with students. Evaluation is based on continuous assessment throughout semester with appropriate weightage for semester work, as well as on final examinations. Different modes of evaluation like submission of assignments, quizzes, viva voce, presentations are available for the faculty to ensure attainment of course and defined program outcomes.

Pedagogy

To address the present generation that demands technology aided learning resources and 24 hours’ content availability, department has ensured to advance updated learning modalities and novel pedagogical methods including LMS, Project based learning, industry projects, Smart board classroom learning etc. Along with that students are offered opportunities like participation in International competitions to hone their skills and develop confidence and team spirit.
