1. Preamble

B.Tech(Lateral Entry) Degree Program is of three academic years with each academic year

being divided into two consecutive (one odd + one even) semesters.

Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) is a flexible system of learning and provides choice

for students to select from the prescribed elective courses. A course defines learning

objectives and learning outcomes and comprises of lectures/tutorials/laboratory work/field

work/projectwork/viva/seminars/assignments/presentations/self-study etc. or a combination

of some of these.

Under the CBCS, the requirement for awarding a degree is prescribed in terms of number

of credits to be completed by the students.

The CBCS permits students to:

the Institute.

ii. undergo additional courses of interest

iii. adopt an inter-disciplinary approach in learning

iv. make the best use of expertise of the available faculty

2. Minimum Qualification

Engineering Diploma holders are admitted directly into B.Tech second year i.e. third

semester in their respective branches based on their ranks in A.P. Engineering Common

Entrance Test (APECET) conducted by Govt. of A.P. Admissions are made by the

Convener, APECET.

3. Branches of Study

The branches of study in B.Tech Degree Program are

i) Chemical Engineering ii) Civil Engineering iii) Computer Science and Engineering iv) Electrical and Electronics Engineering v) Electronics and Communication Engineering vi) Mechanical Engineering

Each test is of two hours duration carrying 40 marks. End-Semester

Examination is of 3 hours duration carrying 60 marks. Sessional marks for

a maximum of 40 shall be awarded based on the performance of the two

sessional tests.

13.2 For each practical course except project work, the sessional marks for a

maximum of 40 shall be awarded based on the continuous assessment of

practical work by the teacher concerned. An End-Semester Examination

of 3 hours duration carrying 60 marks shall be conducted by two

examiners, one external and one internal appointed by the Principal. The

Principal shall appoint the external examiner from among the panel of

examiners recommended by the Chairman, BoS concerned. He shall

appoint the internal examiner nominated by the Head of the Department

concerned.

15. Grading and Grade Points

Grade Point: It is a numerical weight allotted to each letter grade on a 10-point

scale

Letter Grade:It is an index of the performance of students in a said course.

Grades are denoted by letters O, A+, A, B+, B, C, P and F.

Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA): It is a measure of student’s performance

in a semester.

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA): It is a measure of overall

performance of a student over all semesters.

Letter Grades and Grade Points:

A 10-point grading system with the letter grades are as given below:

Grades and Grade Points

A student obtaining Grade F shall be considered failed and shall be required to

reappear in the Semester- end examination.

SGPA is the ratio of sum of the product of the number of credits with the grade

points scored by a student in all the courses and the sum of the number of credits

of all the courses in the semester.

15.2

In each semester, every student who satisfies the attendance requirements

has to register for the semester-end examination, failing which he/she shall
