Teaching Methodology :

Teachers-student ratio on the University is close to what is followed in IITs Upgradation of
laboratories and workshops is carried out by removing obsolescence and implementing
modern trends . Enhancement of quality is also initiated by induction of teaching aids and
use of e-learning facilities. Remedial classes for weaker students are also arranged. Teachers
assessment is carried out throughout the semester through class tests, quitz, home
assignments mid-term examination etc. Development of teachers is done on a regular basis
through out the year.

The teaching load is as per UGC / AICTE rules. The balance of the hours for teachers is
spent through participation in research, development activities, project interactions,
assessment works and counseling of the students.
