Engg. Overview
Engineering and technology are two sides of the same coin. Technologies are the processes and products that people have developed to solve problems or meet human needs and desires. Engineering is the practice of modifying or creating new technologies. The term "engineering" has been selected for the title of this course rather than "technology" for the following reasons

A variety of teaching methods are used in this course, including textbook reading, small group and large class discussions, and both individual and team design challenges. These different methods are suggested with the understanding that not all students learn the same way. Some have a greater need to explore and invent on their own, while others need more structure. There is a guiding philosophy to this course.

First, we recognize the importance of the ideas and skills that students bring to the learning situation. Students are therefore encouraged to share their initial ideas and approaches to problems and to consider these initial ideas in light of new information and insights provided by the teacher, the course material, and other students. That is why small and large group discussions are essential.

Second, we recognize that conceptual change is not always easy or immediate. Sometimes students need to struggle with conflicting ideas so that they may construct a more meaningful and consistent understanding of the content. For example, it is often difficult for students to understand that engineers do not consider the "failure" of a model design to be a bad thing. Failures help engineers find weaknesses, so that their next design will provide a better solution to the problem.

Third, it is simply not possible for students to learn the engineering design process from the textbook alone. The activities are absolutely essential, in many cases high school students have no previous experience solving problems that require them to think "outside the box," while at the same time subjecting their designs to specific criteria and constraints. Finding an elegant solution to a problem can be immensely satisfying to your students, but it can also be very frustrating. That is why they are called "design challenges."

Fourth, the engineering design process is at the heart of what engineers do. Even though most engineers do not follow this cyclical process step-by-step, it nonetheless provides a pathway for thinking, just as the inquiry method does for scientists.

Finally, there is no substitute for a teacher who is sensitive to the various learning styles of their students and capable of modifying a lesson on the spot or taking advantage of a "teachable moment" to help students raise their understanding to a higher level.

The duration of the course is for four years and the course is divided into eight semesters, each of six months duration, of which the first two semesters are combined. Students will have to appear for the University examination at the end of the every semester. Thereafter, they will have to appear for a University theory and practical examination at the end of every semester.

Job Opportunities:

Engineering graduates are the pillars in the current and emerging information era. Opportunities include pursuing Master of Science programs in reputed Universities and taking up research assignments in Hardware, System Software, Computer Engineering, Multi media, and Net Working and Communications areas.

Job opportunities are ever increasing, and are varied in nature. System Study, Analysis, Design and Programming are the inherent phases in application development, and each one of them provides enormous potential to the Computer Science and Engineering graduates to shape themselves in their career. Hi-end profiles include Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Graphic Solutions and Simulations.
