Dual Degree Programs
Two dual degree programs with a specialization in Automotive Engineering (2005 onwards) and Biomedical Design (2008 onwards) were initiated.
The curriculum was designed such that a combination of arts, science, engineering and practice was obtained. The first batch of dual-degree students with a specialization in Automotive Engineering was graduated in 2010 and that of with a specialization in Biomedical Design was graduated in 2013. Currently, 282 dual-degree students are on roll.
The unique features of this curriculum:
i) different teaching laboratories have been setup and importance is also given to laboratories connected with theory subjects and
ii) one semester long industrial project training.
To enhance the motivation of dual degree students following aspects are also noted:
i) To increase number of electives which can be offered by a guest faculty member from an industry, ii) To increase industry-student interaction by introducing industrial lectures from the third year, iii) To increase multidisciplinary group projects to provide experience of working in a team to solve
an engineering problem as in industry,
iv) To insist with the industries to provide challenging industrial projects to VIII semester students during their one-semester long industrial project
