ACADEMIC PROGRAMME
Choice Based Credit System (CBCS)
Why Choice Based Credit System?
 Making the Curriculum Interdisciplinary
• All cutting edge developments in technology occur at
the interface of two or more disciplines
• Interdisciplinary approach enables the integration of
concepts, theories , techniques and perspectives from two or
more disciplines to find solutions to problems that are
beyond the scope of a single discipline.
 ‘Cafeteria’ approach in which the students can choose
courses of their own choice.
 Student can explore additional avenues of learning
beyond core courses
 Student can learn at his own pace.
 Promotes holistic and overall development of a student
 Shift from traditional teacher centered education to
student centered education
Salient features of the academic
programme
Wide range of Courses

Credit System

Comprehensive Continuous Assessment

Grading
 CBCS is the mother of student centric educational
reforms. A student is provided with an academically
rich, highly flexible learning system blended with
abundant provision for skill practice and activity
orientation that he/she could learn in depth without
sacrificing his/her creativity.

 A student can exercise the option to decide his/her own


pace of learning- slow, normal or accelerated plan and
sequence his/her choice of paper, learn to face
challenges through term work/ project work/ and may
venture out to acquire extra knowledge/ proficiency
through add- on facilities.
Courses shall be of three kinds:
Core, Elective and Foundation.

Core Course (CC): This is a course which is to be compulsorily


studied by a student as a core requirement to complete the
requirement of the programme.

Elective Course: This is a course which can be chosen from a


pool of elective courses. It is intended to support the discipline
of study by providing an expanded scope, enabling exposure to
another discipline/domain and nurturing a student’s
proficiency and skill. An elective may be of the following types:
Discipline Centric Elective (ED): It is an elective course
that adds proficiency to the students in the discipline.

Generic Elective (EG): It is an elective course taken from


other engineering subjects and enhances the generic
proficiency and interdisciplinary perspective of students.

Open Elective (EO): It is an elective course taken from a


common pool of non-engineering disciplines that broadens
the perspective of an engineering student. These electives
shall comprise two groups: Open electives of the
Humanities, Social Sciences and Management group and
Open electives of the Sciences group.
• Foundation Course: A Foundation course leads to knowledge
enhancement and provides value-based training. Foundation
courses may be of two kinds:

• Compulsory Foundation (FC): It is based upon the content that


leads to fundamental knowledge enhancement in Sciences,
Humanities, Social Sciences and Basic engineering. They are
mandatory for all disciplines.

• Elective Foundation (FE): It can be taken from among a


common pool of foundation courses which aim at value-based
education. They may provide hands-on training to improve
competencies, skills or provide education on human, societal,
environmental and national values. These shall be mandatory,
non-credit courses, which do not carry any credits but a student
has to pass in order to be eligible for award of degree.
