It aims to develop a number of qualities in students. These are as follows:
Group & 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 discussions and presentations not only leverages on time 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 life-long 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 a opportunity is provided to do problem solving, engage in design exercises, and perform information search and processing.
Sustained Disciplined Work.
The ability to put in sustained and disciplined hard work over a sufficient length of time is one of the key factors to success in professional life. A typical semester is designed in an intensive and a modular fashion with an emphasis on regular and continuous work.
Flexibility in Pace of Learning.
The evaluation system makes special provision for different paces of learning for different students.
Yet, it attempts to inculcate respect for deadlines. Thus, while specifying a time limit within which tutorial/practical work must be completed, there is scope to submit such work beyond the deadline.
However, there will be a small penalty for late submission. The faculty will notify of the penalty for late submission for each tutorial/practical session and also the time up to which late submissions will be accepted.
The curriculum is structured so that basic implementation skills and design skills are interwoven together. Thus, for example, a student of Programming Systems learns not only how to program but also how to design programs (The teaching- learning process structures a course in the two levels of implementation and design).
Students should be aware of the importance of continuous improvement, building zero-defect product sand doing quality work. All courses will emphasize on quality as an integral part of teaching. Students will be taught how to test and certify their laboratory work and how to evaluate the worth of theoretical results.
Given the complexity of technological problems of today, large teams work together to provide solutions. Thus, it is very important to learn group dynamics and to work in teams. Through cooperative work wherever possible, the Institute will encourage students to learn to select good teams,resolve leadership and group issues and in general, to make effective groups.
