GUIDELINES FOR MINOR CURRICULA

1.     

Minor in Engineering: A minor in engineering is an additional credential a student may earn, if he/she does additional learning for 20 credits in a discipline other than his/her major discipline of B.Tech programme. These additional credits shall be acquired through MOOCs from the list of courses for a Minor Engineering prescribed by the respective departments. On successful accumulation of these additional credits, at the time of graduation, it shall be mentioned in the degree certificate as “Bachelor of Technology in XXX Engineering/Technology, with Minor in YYY Engineering/Technology”

2.

A Minor in Engineering allows students to officially explore interested engineering programme other than their own and thus an opportunity to expand their breadth of study in engineering disciplines.

3.     

Student who has completed B.Tech. IV semester in his/ her regular B.Tech. programme without any standing backlogs and with a minimum CGPA of 8.0 shall be allowed to register for  Minor in Engineering.

4.     

Student who wants to register for Minor in Engineering shall opt for registration at the end of IV semester of his/ her B.Tech. programme, subject to the conditions prescribed by the AAC from time to time

5.   Student registered for Minor in Engineering shall ensure the following in his/her regular B.Tech programme

        iii.

student should maintain a minimum SGPA of 7.0 in every semester from V semester to VIII semester of regular B.Tech programme and

        iv.

student should maintain a CGPA of 8.0 at the end of VIII semester of regular B.Tech programme

        

If the student fails to meet the above criteria, his/her registration for Minor in Engineering shall stand cancelled and he/she will be awarded only regular B.Tech degree

6.   This facility for additional learning leading to Minor in Engineering is applicable for the batches admitted from AY 2018-19.

7.

A Minor in Engineering is advantageous to those who wish to augment their major engineering discipline with other engineering courses. Itcan add value to their academic background for higher studies, allows them to take up interdisciplinary research and throws good opportunities in industry.

8.     

The students of other departments opting to pursue a Minor Degree in Engineering, have to earn 20 credits by choosing six (6) to nine (9) theory courses and two (2) laboratory courses prescribed in the Minor Curriculum.

9.    The departments shall propose their Minor Curricula as per the following guidelines

       a.

Minor curriculum is composed of three components viz.,

        

i.

Minor compulsory courses,

        

ii.

Minor elective courses and

        

iii.

       d.

In exigency situations such as the student already completed any listed compulsory courses(s) or elective course(s) on his/her own interest during previous semesters through MOOCs etc, the HoD in consultation with Dean-AA shall offer an alternative course(s) for the specific scenario, after verification of relevant documents

       e.

Minor laboratory courses

        

i.

Three (3) to four (4) laboratory courses are to be listed

        

ii.

These labs shall mostly be on exposing student to core areas and also branch specific simulation software

        

iii.

Student has to choose two (2) laboratory courses and earn two (2) cred

       f.

Theory courses are of 2 or 3 or 4 credits each

       g.

Laboratory courses are of 1 credit each

11.    The student has to earn 20 credits from the list of courses proposed under Minor Curriculum.

   a.

Eighteen (18) credits for all the theory courses shall be acquired through MOOCs only

           i.

For this, by end of April of every academic year, the department shall

              1.    

notify the list of equivalent courses in SWAYAM-NPTEL MOOCs / other standard MOOCs against the list of courses notified under Minor curriculum

              2.    

propose a new course(s) in the place of any listed course(s) in the Minor curriculum, in case no equivalent course is found in MOOCs

  b.

For the credits identified under laboratory courses, the department shall offer the prescribed laboratory courses. Students shall have to register those courses and earn two (02) credits

12.

Student shall be permitted to take a maximum of 2 theory courses and one laboratory course during any semester for additional learning towards Minor in Engineering curricula

13.     

Student shall take laboratory courses, listed under Minor in Engineering curricula, in the minor-department during inter-semester break and complete the course with a course project
