    B.E with Minor degree program

    In tune with the guidelines of AICTE it is proposed to start Bachelor of Engineering (B. E) with Minor which focuses on the fundamental principles of multiple Engineering disciplines, critical & analytical thinking and the ability to develop a distinctive approach to the interdisciplinary problems.

    1. Objectives

    The key objectives of offering B.E. with Minor program are:

    • To provide an opportunity to students to pursue their under graduate programme in the inter-disciplinary  areas in addition to their own branch of study, facilitating them to expand their domain knowledge  in one of the other branches of engineering

    • To increase the employability of undergraduate students keeping in view of better opportunity in interdisciplinary areas of engineering & Technology

    • To provide an opportunity to students to pursue their higher studies in the inter-disciplinary areas in addition to their own branch of study.

    • To offer the knowledge in the areas which are identified as emerging technologies/thrustareas of Engineering.

    2. Proposed Academic Regulations for B.E. Degree with Minor programs
