4.4 Project Courses

Final-year students in the BS-MS programme are required to undertake two-semester projects under the supervision of a designated guide.

Students in the Integrated PhD programme must undertake a semester long project. They may extend the scope of this project by registering for additional credits in lieu of an elective course.

In each case, the project guide will serve as the instructor for the purpose of co-ordinating the evaluation process.

The evaluation of these projects will be carried out on a semester-by-semester basis. The manner of evaluation may vary between disciplines but should be consistent for all students within each discipline.

The evaluation for the final semester of the project course of a BS-MS student must be based on a detailed examination of the MS thesis by a committee of at least three faculty members (including the guide), a viva-voce examination and a public presentation of the work done.

Only one final bound copy is to be provided to the Dean Academics office to be placed in the library.6 An electronic copy of the thesis in PDF format must also be submitted. Evaluation of the student will not be considered complete in the absence of these submissions.

Evaluation for these courses should be completed before the start of the end-semester examination week.
