CHAROTAR UNIVERSITY OF
SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY

Education Campus – Changa, (ECC), hitherto a conglomerate of institutes of professional


education in Engineering, Pharmacy, Computer Applications, Management, Applied
Sciences, Physiotherapy and Nursing, is one of the choicest destinations by students. It
has been transformed into Charotar University of Science and Technology
(CHARUSAT) through an Act by Government of Gujarat. CHARUSAT is permitted to
grant degrees under Section-22 of UGC- Govt. of India.

The journey of CHARUSAT started in the year 2000, with only 240 Students, 4
Programmes, one Institute and an investment of about Rs. 3 Crores (INR 30 million). At
present there are seven different institutes falling under ambit of six different faculties.
The programmes offered by these faculties range from undergraduate (UG) to Ph.D
degrees including M.Phil. These faculties, in all offer 23 different programmes. A quick
glimpse in as under:

The development and growth of the institutes have already led to an investment of over
Rs.63 crores (INR 630 Million). The future outlay is planned with an estimate of Rs. 250
Crores (INR 2500 Million).

The University is characterized by state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities, innovative


teaching methods and highly learned faculty members. The University Campus sprawls
over 100 acres of land and is Wi-Fi enabled. It is also recognized as the Greenest Campus
of Gujarat.

CHARUSAT is privileged to have 300 core faculty members, educated and trained in
Stanford, IITs, IIMs and leading Indian Universities, and with long exposure to industry.
It is also proud of its past students who are employed in prestigious national and
multinational corporations.

From one college to the level of a forward-looking University, CHARUSAT has the vision
of entering the club of premier Universities initially in the country and then globally.
High Moral Values like Honesty, Integrity and Transparency which have been the
foundation of ECC continue to anchor the functioning of CHARUSAT. Banking on the
world class infrastructure and highly qualified and competent faculty, the University is
expected to be catapulted into top 20 Universities in the coming five years. In order to
align with the global requirements, the University has collaborated with internationally
reputed organizations like Pennsylvania State University – USA, University at Alabama at
Birmingham – USA, Northwick Park Institute –UK, ISRO, BARC, etc.

CHARUSAT has designed curricula for all its programmes in line with the current
international practices and emerging requirements. Industrial Visits, Study Tours, Expert
Lectures and Interactive IT enabled Teaching Practice form an integral part of the unique
CHARUSAT pedagogy.

© CHARUSAT 2010 Page 3 of 75


The programmes are credit-based and have continuous evaluation as an important feature.
The pedagogy is student-centred, augurs well for self-learning and motivation for enquiry
and research, and contains innumerable unique features like:
 Participatory and interactive discussion-based classes.
 Sessions by visiting faculty members drawn from leading academic institutions
and industry.
 Regular weekly seminars.
 Distinguished lecture series.
 Practical, field-based projects and assignments.
 Summer training in leading organizations under faculty supervision in relevant
programmes.
 Industrial tours and visits.
 Extensive use of technology for learning.
 Final Placement through campus interviews.

Exploration in the field of knowledge through research and development and


comprehensive industrial linkages will be a hallmark of the University, which will mould
the students for global assignments through technology-based knowledge and critical
skills.

The evaluation of the student is based on grading system. A student has to pursue his/her
programme with diligence for scoring a good Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)
and for succeeding in the chosen profession and life.

CHARUSAT welcomes you for a Bright Future

6. Attendance

6.1 All activities prescribed under these regulations and listed by the course faculty
members in their respective course outlines are compulsory for all students
pursuing the courses. No exemption will be given to any student from attendance
except on account of serious personal illness or accident or family calamity that
may genuinely prevent a student from attending a particular session or a few
sessions. However, such unexpected absence from classes and other activities will
be required to be condoned by the Dean/Principal.

6.2 Student attendance in a course should be 80%.

7 Course Evaluation

7.1 The performance of every student in each course will be evaluated as follows:
7.1.1 Internal evaluation by the course faculty member(s) based on continuous
assessment, for 30% of the marks for the course; and
7.1.2 Final examination by the University through written paper or practical
test or oral test or presentation by the student or a combination of any two
or more of these, for 70% of the marks for the course.

7.2 Internal Evaluation


As per Annexure – 1 attached
University Examination
7.2.1 The final examination by the University for 70% of the evaluation for the
course will be through written paper or practical test or oral test or
presentation by the student or a combination of any two or more of these.
7.2.2 In order to earn the credit in a course a student has to obtain grade
other than FF.

7.3 Performance at Internal & University Examination


7.3.1 Minimum performance with respect to internal marks as well as university
examination will be an important consideration for passing a course.
Details of minimum percentage of marks to be obtained in the
examinations (internal/external) are as follows

examination till the minimum required overall marks are obtained.(As per
the clause 8.2(iv)

© CHARUSAT 2010 Page 7 of 75


8 Grading

8.1 The total of the internal evaluation marks and final University examination marks
in each course will be converted to a letter grade on a ten-point scale as per the
following scheme:

Table: Grading Scheme (PG)


Range of Marks (%) ≥80 ≥75 ≥70 ≥65 ≥60 ≥55 ≥50 <50
<80 <75 <70 <65 <60 <55
Letter Grade AA AB BB BC CC CD DD FF
Grade Point 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 0

8.2 The student‟s performance in any semester will be assessed by the Semester
Grade Point Average (SGPA). Similarly, his performance at the end of two or
more consecutive semesters will be denoted by the Cumulative Grade Point
Average (CGPA). The SGPA and CGPA are calculated as follows:

(i) SGPA = ∑ Ci Gi / ∑ Ci where Ci is the number of credits of course i


Gi is the Grade Point for the course i
and i = 1 to n, n = number of courses in the
semester

(ii) CGPA = ∑ Ci Gi / ∑ Ci where Ci is the number of credits of course i


Gi is the Grade Point for the course i
and i = 1 to n, n = number of courses of all
semesters up to which CGPA is computed.

(iii) No student will be allowed to move further if CGPA is less than 3 at the
end of every academic year.

9. Awards of Degree
