COURSE STRUCTURE FOR SECTIONS 'A' AND 'B' EXAMINATIONS


DEVELOPMENT OF COURSE STRUCTURE


The generalized commonalities of the programme, which are prerequisite for developing scientific mind and engineering attitude, are first identified and classified as Basic Commonalities.
A global outline for developing professional expertise around a common theme is identified next. This is classified as Advanced Commonalities.
The discipline-wise commonalities are developed next, followed by specialization in each discipline.

BASIC COMMONALITIES

 

To develop the basic commonalities, it is essential to first identify the fields of activities. A student of engineering is required to have
Adequate knowledge of basic sciences,
Adequate knowledge and application of engineering sciences,
Appreciation of environment and society on engineering activities, and
Adequate communication skill to communicate with engineering process,people and machine.

 

 

The subjects to cover the above fields are broadly as under :



BASIC SCIENCE
Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics
ENGINEERING SCIENCE
Fundamentals of Design and Manufacturing, Electrical Science
Electronics and Instrumentation, Mechanical Science
Material Science and Engineering
SOCIAL SCIENCE
Societal Structures and Dynamics, Development Processes
Technology Assessment, Ecosystems, Environmental Degradation
Waste Management and Sustainable Development
COMMUNICATION
Engineering Drawing and Graphics, Computing and Informatics


A course structure identified as Section 'A', common for all disciplines and based on the above considerations, has been evolved.


 

ADVANCED COMMONALITIES


The course structure for each discipline in Section 'B' have one common subject -- Engineering Management -- except Marine Engineering discipline.



DISCIPLINE COMMONALITIES AND SPECIALIZATION


The various task groups of each discipline developed the course structure for that particular discipline, keeping the discipline commonalities confined to five papers and specialization to three papers from one of the optional groups.

The course structure and syllabi of 15 engineering disciplines have been divided into two parts -- engineering disciplines in which Section 'B' examination are being conducted at present, followed by engineering disciplines in which Section 'B' examinations are not being conducted.
