Student Projects

Project-based learning is a teaching approach that engages students in sustained, collaborative real-world investigations. In this backdrop institution has initiated mini project concept as a part of teaching learning process for the undergraduate students to take up at least two mini projects prior to the final year compulsory project. Students of second and third year. Students also undertake Interdisciplinary and Multi-disciplinary Projects at the Final year. In addition, Problem-Based Learning (PBL) is initiated to be the part of innovative teaching-learning process.
