 Yes. The courses are designed to judge the students’ attainment level for each course outcome. Therefore, there is a direct correlation between the content of the courses, the Question papers and the designated COs. Cos are in turn correlated to POs.
Considerable efforts are made by the Institute for Entrepreneurship Development. Many of our Alumni have become Entrepreneurs either directly after leaving the Institute or, more commonly, after serving a few years in the industry. An indicative list of such entrepreneurs is placed on the website. The Industry Institute Partnership Cell initially funded by AICTE is still active and organizes several courses and industry interaction regularly.  Several self help groups and ATMA, ADyNAM, AAMKARKHANA and DEI JUGAD are available for the students across the institute for entrepreneurial activities.
The DEI has a continuous evaluation system and the weak students are identified during this process. Remedial coaching is then made available for them by the staff. Academically bright students are provided with various opportunities to present papers and participate in National Competitions. Those students who wish to make some hardware item are provided sufficient lab support and funding for the same. Students are typically provided funding for such endeavours. Funding as a special Undergraduate Research Award is also made available to bright students who have some good project proposal. Special lab slots to repeat the experiments and tutorial classes are being organized for weak students. Bright students were also funded through MITAC scheme of TEQIP for internship and higher studies at Canada. A few student who got pre-placement offers during their internship are permitted to join the industry while completing their final year through online courses.
Training, Internship and Skill development programmes are compulsory part of the curriculum. After training they are evaluated jointly by the industry and the institute. Even sustenance allowance during training is provided either by the industry or the institute to every student.

An Institute industry, partnership cell is in place along with several MOU’s with the industry to meet the above requirement.
This is the strength of the institute wherein our students are mostly pursuing projects related to real life and industry problems. The students are getting PPOs for the excellent work done during their internship.  Several projects done by the students for solving societal problems includes development of RFID facility for Dairy, vehicle tracking system and assistance during Medical Camps.
The Institute has already implemented PBAS system as per UGC norms and the proof was shown. All promotions under CAS are done on the basis of recommendations of IQAC.

Yes, the institute has an innovative scheme and most of the students are satisfied with the introduction of a project course at this level. It is a Product Manufacturing Project based on workshop skills acquired at the first-year level and is not an R & D project. The institute has a very strong focus on skilling in line with various government schemes.
Sharing of evaluation scheme is necessary when there are multiple paper checkers for the same course and one wishes to ensure consistency in the level of evaluation. The examiner evaluates only one course and does so on the basis of instructions provided for the same and so there is no necessity to share the evaluation scheme.
Answer sheets are not shown as a policy unless there are compelling reasons to do the same. However, it is always ensured that no student ever suffers due to this policy.
The institute already had various Lab on Land concept and in fact in all the labs at all level in the Institute the engineering is integrated. All the students are exposed to all such living laboratories. All labs are available for their research and project work on a time-sharing basis and need basis.
As per AICTE all facilities across the Institute can be shared and utilized by the students. Several computers are available in the Faculty and at multiple locations are being used by the students. It is meaningless to insist on duplicating resources at the Department level when the same are already available as a shared resource at the Faculty level.

This mapping is done on a continuous basis. The COs are formulated based on the current curriculum and the perceived benefits of a particular course. These are improved along with the course structure or independently based on the feedback obtained in each year from the various stakeholders. Thus, it is ensured that the course structure as well as the mappings of COs and POs truly reflect the needs of the time.
In order to ensure that complete advantage of the Outcome Based Education (OBE) system is realized , it is important that the Question papers and Curriculum also reflect the Course outcomes distinctly. Several workshops have been organized in DEI for enabling the Faculty members to imbibe the concepts of OBE and follow the said approach for the evaluation carried out by them in their course. The efforts are beginning to bear fruit and the faculty members have started to design their evaluation components with due consideration of the COs.
The placements of DEI students is good. Many students get even two or more jobs before they graduate.  Several students opt for higher education every year.
