We provide a strong focus on experimental learning with the help of latest tools and techniques using case studies, projects, classroom exercises etc. Seminars and presentations are given by students, which help them in developing their skills in effective expression and eliminating the fear of public speaking that makes them stand out of the crowd in terms of ideology, confidence and portraying their views.
Practical sessions are an intrinsic part of any professional course. It’s mandatory for all Students to undertake practical labs, wherever required so that they not only know the theoretical concepts but also can use their learning in order to implement and develop individual software projects.
Every student is required to submit his work, including assignment, Files etc. For evaluation purpose, we conduct two sessional exams and one pre-university exam. In order to make students up to date, we have included an extra course STEP (Student Transformation and Enhancement Program) where we focus on overall development of Students which include – Communication and technical skills as well as soft skills.
In order to provide students’ with an exceptional amount of knowledge other than course syllabus, our faculties have included 10% extra syllabus in each and every course.
We have also included some Value Added Courses in every semester for the technical betterment of the students in the college curriculum. The VAC courses help students to develop some technical skills which serve as a good asset to the students Curriculum Vitae as well as for their future in the IT Industry or for their further studies.
In order to provide overall development of students, our department has conducted “Technotsav 2K17” event where students have developed and presented individual projects in trending technologies with a good future scope. These projects are designed with good efforts under the knowledgeable guidance of our proficient faculty members.
All students don’t have same learning capability so in order to focus on weak students’ tutorials, extra classes and re-examinations are conducted for them. One to one attention is paid to every weak scholar.
