The Vision of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) is to be renowned globally for imparting quality engineering education and research in interdisciplinary cutting edge technology. The mission of the FET is to produce morally conscious competent leaders and engineering professionals. It comprises of five departments viz Civil Engineering (CE), Computer Science & Engineering (CSE), Electronics & Communication Engineering (ECE), Mechanical Engineering (ME), and Applied Sciences & Humanities. The FET offers UG programmes leading to B.Tech. in CE, CSE, ECE, and ME. It also offers M.Tech. and Doctoral Degree Programs in Engineering disciplines of CSE, ECE, CE and ME, and an unique Masters in Technology Management (MTM) as an integrated B.Tech.-MBA program.
The programs are articulately designed to meet needs of industries and other employing sectors, and to prepare students for the national and global employment market.The FET is establishing the Learners’ Centric Academic Environment by adopting Flexible-Slot-Based Time-Table, and FRICS (Flexible Research Integrated Credit System) that empowers students to choose the subjects from the disciplines of their own interests. It also enables the students to not only build a sound knowledge base in particular discipline but also applications widened across the disciplines. The curriculum is carefully designed as per international standards by adopting the most advanced learning systems viz Project Based Learning (PBL), Research Based Learning (RBL), Cooperative Learning and other learning tools & emerging learning modes. Class-rooms and labs are well equipped with modern teaching aids to facilitate the latest teaching andragogy.
FET has established unique ‘Mentoring System’ through which each student is assigned a Faculty Adviser. Faculty Advisers closely and carefully mentor the students to achieve excellence in their endeavors.They play a strong role to ensure that students complete their degree program in a smooth and timely manner. Faculty advisers not only help students to achieve their professional goals but also at the same time act as anchors who provide emotional, ethical and moral support throughout their tenure at the University.All the advisers have a deep sense of devotion towards maximizing the opportunities of development available to students within the campus and beyond. Faculty Advisers are the contact point for parents/ guardians for performance and conduct related issues of their wards.
FET has scholars with expertise in their respected fields of study, and are brought on the board from `well reputed institutions like IITs. The faculty members have diverse experience of working in industry as well as academics and research. They are dedicated to pedagogical approaches which are student-centric and experiential. Students are given plethora of opportunities to work on live projects that provide a platform to put theoretical knowledge into practical application.
FET is equipped with all modern facilities that include state of art computer labs and WIFI enabled campus. The Library is not only well stocked with latest collections of text books, reference books and scientific journals but also offers e-learning tools for easier access to the knowledge. Additionally, it has a very unique feature of ‘Book-Bank System’ that allows the students to borrow the subject text books once for entire semester. In addition to the facilities mentioned above, students can also avail amenities like hostel, mess services, free medical services, sports complex, central library, and transportation etc.
Corporate Resource Center (CRC) takes care of all the training and placement related activities. Special credit courses have been developed to focus on campus to corporate movement of the students that includes soft skills and personality development sessions. Special focus is given to develop communication skills, Interview skills and group discussions as these are the basic pre-requisites for today’s professionals. Internship assistance, pre-placement workshops, focused industrial visits are organised to develop general awareness and readiness for successful transition to work environment.
Learner Centric Flexible Academic Environment
- FRICS (Flexible Research Integrated Credit System) FRICS is an in-house developed academic system that caters to the leaner’s creativity and provides an opportunity to showcase and explore research potential. Additionally, due to the provisions provided within the system, students can partially redesign the curriculum as per their interests.
- FSBT (Flexible Slot Based Time-Table) FSBT provides flexibility to students to make their own time-table depending upon their physiological clock.
- QCM (Quality Circle Meeting) The objective of QCM is to provide guidance to students related to specific subjects as well as to address any mid-semester concerns. QCM meetings of students and teachers are held after each CAT (Sessional exams) to evaluate students’ performances and resolve the problem(s) related to their respective subject(s) .
Advanced Curriculum and Syllabus
