Credit System The B. Tech programs consist of 8 semesters spread over 4 academic years. A student takes 5 to 6 theory courses in addition to laboratory courses in each semester. Credits are allotted to various courses depending on the number of lecture/tutorial/laboratory hours per week. A student's performance in a course is continuously evaluated throughout the semester and culminates in the award of a grade on a 10-point scale. Based on the performance of a student, each student is awarded a final letter grade in each subject at the end of the semester. The letter grades and the corresponding grade points are as follows:

Letter Grade

Grade Point

AA

10

AB

09

BB

08

BC

07

CC

06

CD

05

DD

04

F

0

In addition, there shall be two transitional grades ‘I’ and ‘X’ used by the instructors.

The students' Semester Performance Index (SPI) is evaluated by weighted average of grade points secured in all the courses registered by the student in that semester. The Cumulative Performance Index (CPI) representing the weighted average of the grade points secured by the students in all the semesters is also recorded.



Rules For Change Branch:

The Institute permits a limited number of students to change from one branch of study to another after the end of the second semester, subject to certain conditions, some of which are given below:

Only those students will be eligible for a change of branch who have completed all the common credits required in the first two semesters of their studies in their first attempt with a CPI of not less than 8.00 and without having had to pass any course requirement in the summer term examination.
