Group and Self-Learning
This is a very effective means towards preparing professionals who are proactive in seeking and acquiring knowledge rather than having it imparted only in the classroom.
Free exchange of ideas among the group members through discussion and presentation not only leverage on time, idea exchange and effort but also enhances teaching and communication skills. Aptitude is developed for self-study and use of web resources and data banks to foster lifelong learning.
Problem Solving Exercises
Problem solving is an integral part of the teaching-learning process. Lectures emphasize this aspect through carefully set, open-ended design problems. Students are organized in small groups where an opportunity is provided to carry out problem solving exercises, engage in design activities, and perform information search and processing.
All the disciplines are fully supported by Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Professional Development. Emphasis on strong fundamentals in pure sciences as well as communication skills is an integral part of the course design that is developed in close coordination with the industry, keeping the requirements of the future in mind.
The Science programmes will offer basic and advanced courses of an inter-disciplinary nature. The advanced courses will be in cutting-edge areas of nano-science and materials, bio-science communication networks including optical fiber and wireless communication, and compound semiconductors.
Courses in Wavelets, Optimization Techniques, Advanced Simulation and Reliability will also be offered as electives.
Engineers are expected to interact with their own professional community as well as with people from allied fields. The Professional Development programmes supplement engineering education with knowledge of social sciences and the inculcation of good communication skills so as to make them more enterprising and competitively oriented to succeed in the outside world.
A limited number of Teaching Assistantships are available to candidates with a high GATE score at the commencement of the M.Tech programme. Partial financial support, in the form of Teaching Assistantships, is available for the M.Tech students during their second year also, which will be based on their academic performance. Financial support is available for Ph.D. students in the form of Research Assistantships.
The Institute will follow the continuous evaluation approach at par with leading institutes in the country. Multiple inputs will be obtained for evaluation of student performance through session assignments, quizzes, weekly tests, minor and major tests at the middle and end of each semester, and a holistic view is taken of all these inputs for awarding the final Grade. A dynamic system of weightages for the various academic components, such as project activity, presentations, group behavior, and leadership qualities has been put in place.
Credit based academic programmes, with modular structure offer flexibility to progress at one's own pace. A minimum level of performance is necessary for satisfactory progress
Guest Lectures & Seminars
Eminent professionals from the country and abroad drawn from academic institutions, research laboratories and industry are invited for delivering lectures and seminars and for interaction with the Institute's fraternity.
The curriculum is updated to integrate changes that are taking place in the environment. The curriculum consists of core and elective courses.
The core course package provides students with the foundation of the engineering discipline.
Elective courses, on the other hand, are offered with an option to specialize in a specific area of interest.
The Institute presently offers specialization in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Information Technology, and Mechanical Engineering.
