All Undergraduate & Postgraduate programs at SMVDU are semester based with two Semesters in each Academic Session. The Odd Semesters run during the August-December Semester while Even Semesters run during the January-May Semester. The Academic Calenderprepared at the beginning of each Academic Session is religiously followed and not deviated upon. Students have Summer Break for two months in June-July and a fortnight of Winter Break in December.
Each Program has a well defined Course Structure which indicates clearly the Courses to be taken in each semester of study and their weightage towards the process of acquiring the degree. The Courses may be offered by any School of Study besides the School where the Student is registered for the degree. Therefore a student registered with School of Computer Science & Engineering for the B.Tech(CSE) program may be required to take courses offered by School of Mechanical Engineering and vice versa. Similarly a student registered with School of Business may be required to take a course offered by the School of Business Economics.
E.g. Program Structure of B.Tech(CSE)-1st Semester
Solid State Physics
Calculus & Linear Algebra
English in Practice
Computer Fundamentals & Information Technology
Electrical Science and Engineering
Solid State Physics Lab
Basic Computer Lab
Basic Electrical Engineering Lab
As can be seen above the Course Solid State Physics is offered by School of Physics, Calculus & Linear Algebra by School of Maths, Engineering Graphics by School of Mechanical Engineering and so on. Each school offers its specialised faculty for the befit of the students.
Credits & L-T-P Structure
Each Course taken by the student has Credits associated with it e.g. Solid State Physics above is worth 4 Credits. The Credits are directly related to the weightage of the Course and the LTP Structure (Lecture-Tutorial-Practical) and is an indicator of the number of hours of teaching associated with that Course in one week.
E.g. Solid State Physics with LTP (3-1-3) indicates that 3 hours of Lectures, 1 Hour of Tutorial Work & 3 Hours of Lab Work are conducted for this course per week.
As each of these Courses are passed by the students the credits are deemed to be earned and when sufficient credits are earned then the degree is awarded subject to other conditions being met.
