Self-Learning is considered as an important aspect of teaching and learning.
Students are given topics for self learning and submission of assignments based

Exercises are given and assistance is given for information search and
processing. Students are encouraged to use web resources.
Industrial/research institute Internship
Every undergraduate student has to take one or two short tem projects either in

has six months project and MIT has two semesters project in Industry or research
institute. This exposes students to Industrial and research environment.
The Institute follows continuous evaluation approach. Multiple inputs are
obtained for evaluation of students performance through assignment,
