Title of the Practice

Placement Based training in Engineering Education (CRT)

Goal
The main objective of this practice is to improve the academic standards and to provide all the academic facilities to the students based on today’s need of the Software industry/hardware Industry into which the students enter after they complete the course. The purpose of the Training and Placement is to guide students to choose right career and to give knowledge, & skilled manpower which requirements of the Industry standards.

The institute thrives to achieve the standards in both academic and administrative aspects in order to see that students may leave the campus with excellence in all constructive dimensions after completion of their course. CRT is found to be the best practice in most of the organizations to improve the placement of the students. Mostly the training programs start in the final year in many organizations; in our institute we train the students from pre-final year onwards which will help them to enhance their both technical & interpersonal skills for their placement drives. Companies no longer just look for academic excellence, aptitude and group discussion. Yes, they are the corner stone of an interview but more and more companies are looking at how well your students are prepared to work in an industry. Your training should be focused n real world problem and what the industry currently requires.
For an example, for computer science students the training should focus on programming languages such as Java, .Net the two prominent programming languages, and Mobile technologies Android and Objective-C, which is used to develop iPhone apps, are also in great demand. Having your students trained on this will differentiate your college from others and will certainly give you an edge.

Title of the Practice:

OUTCOME BASED EDUCATION

Objectives of the Practice:
  • To focus classroom instruction on the accomplishments i.e. skills/competencies those students must demonstrate when they exit.
  • To provide instruction in order to enable students to understand the interrelationships among the social and cultural bases of human behavior.
  • To equip students with knowledge of research methods appropriate to investigations in engineering and socio-cultural settings.
  • To provide students with sufficient opportunities to practice using the new knowledge and skills that they gain, so that, under the faculty’s guidance, they can explore and experiment with their new learning, correct errors, and adjust thinking.
The Context

The outcome based education model prescribes a core curriculum and other basic requirements. It defines the basic parameters for the outcomes of the program and more on specific outcomes and objectives.
It requires the measurement of outcomes, looking for evidence that these measurements have been used to foster a quality improvement process. It is student centric and focuses on the outcomes achieved by the students.
All stake holders are consulted prior to curriculum development: Faculty, Students, Industry, Management, Alumni, Parents, Government, Special interest groups.
It encourages continuous improvement in curriculum. It assesses graduates in knowledge, skills and attitudes to be industry ready.


The Practice

The JBREC has introduced Outcome Based Education which focuses on measuring student performance based on the resources that are available to the students. OBE gives recognition to the students for the knowledge, skills and attitudes they have acquired.

  • The college clearly defines vision, mission, objectives, outcomes and strategies.
  • The college implements OBE based learning in all the programs by defining respective program objectives, program outcomes and program specific outcomes.
  • All the courses in each program are defined with a set of course objectives and outcomes.
  • Each faculty will prepare  course file for each course which contains Department vision, mission, course syllabus, individual time table, program objectives, program outcomes, various mapping matrices, unit plan, lesson plan, course plan, unit wise material, direct and indirect assessments, student grading sheet, surveys/feedbacks collected from students and CO-PO attainment sheet.
  • Each faculty take responsibility as a mentor, counselor, facilitator, guide, assessor, evaluator, learner, and finally as a teacher in OBE system.
  • The college collects the feedback from the students on course structure, infrastructure, faculty, information resources, evaluation, and on the overall OBE system, to establish quality and continuously improve the program.

Vision & Mission

Correlation between vision, mission, PEOs, POs, CObs & COs


The assessment of student learning begins with educational values and is most effective in understanding of learning as multidimensional, integrated, and revealed in performance over time.
The course outcomes were prepared by the action verbs of blooms taxonomy. The assessment of course outcomes are as follows:

Direct assessment:

Internal Mid Examinations and Assignments

Two Mid Examinations are conducted for students as prescribed by the university norms. There shall be 2 midterm examinations (each for 25 marks), along with 2 assignments in a similar pattern as above [1st mid shall be from 2.5 units, 2nd shall be from remaining 2.5units], and the average marks of the two examinations secured (each evaluated for a total of 25 marks) in each subject shall be considered as final marks for the internals. Each question in the mid exam is mapped to the course outcomes. It is expected that a student should score at least 80% of Maximum marks of the course for the attainment.

End Semester Examination

For theory subjects the distribution shall be 25 marks for Internal Evaluation and 75 marks for the End Examination. It is expected that a student should score at least 40% of Maximum marks of the course for the attainment of course outcomes. The marks scored by the students in Internal Examinations, Assignments and End Semester exams are used to assess the attainment level of the whole course and the course outcome attainment level.

Labs

For Labs, there shall be a continuous evaluation during the year for 25 internal marks and 50 end examination marks. Out of 25 marks for the Internal, day to day work in the Laboratory shall be evaluated for 15 marks and internal examination shall be evaluated for 10 marks conducted by the concerned laboratory Faculty. The end examination shall be conducted with external examiner and laboratory teacher.

 Evidence of Success

The college has clearly stated all program outcomes, program specific outcomes and course outcomes for all programs.

  • The faculty, industry and alumni are actively involved in preparing program outcomes, program specific outcomes and course outcomes of all programs in the college.
  • The course outcomes of all the programs are made known to the students and staff by displaying in the website of the college.
  • Individual copies of the regulation book are distributed to all the students which contain details of the course outcomes.
  • Regulation books are also available in the library for student access.
  • Orientation program for all the new students is conducted every year at the beginning of the academic year to educate about all course outcomes.
  • At the beginning of the academic year all the faculty members will prepare the course files and laboratory manuals.
