Teaching for the courses is reckoned in credits. Due credit is given to lecture, tutorial (theory) and practical components for a given subject. Normally for M.Tech., first two semesters have theory and practical (laboratory) subjects while for MSc/MBA, theory courses are taught in all the semesters. The 3rd and 4th semester mostly constitute the project work for M.Tech. while for M.Sc/MBA, the project work spans over the fourth semester. MBAstudents undergo a compulsory summer internship after second semester.
Project work and Seminar are essential part of the curricula. Class tests, assignments, tutorials, vivavoce, laboratory assignments, etc., are the constituent components of continuous assessment process and a student must fulfil all these requirements as prescribed by the teacher/coordinator of the subject.
Students in Postgraduate programmes register for the course at the beginning of each semester. These programmes do not have summer/re-examinations. Students securing ‘F’ grade in any course appear the exam in the following session. Attendance in all classes is compulsory and assessment and evaluation pattern is similar to undergraduate course.
