Print

General

Teaching is done through lectures by faculty, on the topics in the curricula, practical demonstrations, guest lectures by eminent scientists.Group And Self-Learning are considered as an important aspect of teaching and learning. Students are given topics for self-learning and submission of assignments based on these topics. Group discussions are encouraged. Quiz competitions and presentations by students are done regularly.It is a very effective means towards preparing professionals who are proactive in seeking and acquiring knowledge. Students are encouraged to study a topic in a group and work as a team.
