   Student Mini Projects

Project-based learning is a teaching approach that engages students in sustained, collaborative real-world investigations. In this backdrop institution has initiated mini project concept as a part of teaching learning process for the undergraduate students to take up at least two mini projects prior to the final year compulsory project. Students of second and third year BE have chosen 384 mini projects and completed successfully during the academic year 2014-15.
