General Information

Academic Schedule

The academic session of the College  consists of two semesters per year for  each programme. Normally,  the Fall  semester starts in August and the Spring  Semester in February.

Credit System

Each Course is assigned credits based  on work hours utilized per week for  lectures, tutorials, and  practicals. One  lecture on theory per week is assigned  one credit as a general rule.

Study Duration

The normal duration for completing the  BE program at the College will be four  years. The maximum duration, however,  for the completion of the degree shall be  the normal duration plus four years.

Semester System

Our BE programs have 8 semesters,  each semester normally six months. The  academic records are maintained based  on the number of courses registered by  a student in each semester.


Evaluation System
Areas

The academic performance of students during a Semester is evaluated by  the system of continuous assessment (evaluation of Semester work plus  the fnal examinations). The College conducts the Semester work; the  University, the fnal examinations.

Weightage

Each course has 50% marks based on Semester performance evaluation  by the assigned teacher and 50% marks for the written examination at each  Semester end. In the Practical Courses, the Semester marks are awarded on  the basis of continuous assessment but no fnal examination is conducted.

 Grading

The grades (marks) awarded to a student in a Course are based on his or her consolidated performance in Semester and fnal examinations. The letter grade in any particular subject is an indication of a student’s relative performance in that Course as follows:
