Course Structure

The proposed Fellow course structure provides an opportunity for Fellow students to have the breadth of knowledge and flexibility in choosing their courses aligned to the interest of the research. However, the committee also opined that in due course of time, this could be modified and more courses may be added.

In the proposed structure the same 48 credits are proposed which can be covered with the following four-level of courses:

Level of course Type of courses Number of courses Nature of courses
Level – I Basic Courses covering all the basic level knowledge of different areas 9 (3 credit each) Compulsory
Level – II PGP approved Program Core courses 2 (3 credit each) Electives
Level – III PGP approved Program Elective/ Institute Electives 4 (3 credit each) Electives
Level – IV Approved Stream specific electives from Fellow courses - Seminar based course/ Specialized Online courses 1 (3 credit each) Electives
Total courses 16 48 credits

The following detailed list provides the level-wise courses that have been proposed in line with the existing approved PGP and Fellow stream specific elective courses.

Recommendation and Evaluation of Online courses

RPC may also consider recommending some online specialized courses equivalent to the full-time courses. The online courses can be identified from well-known and recognized platforms like MOOCS/NPTEL/ and active learning programs offered by IIT/IISc/IIM/IISER/AIIMS and top-tier international institutes. The credit requirement, as per the course outline, can be completed in the form of a project report and seminar (for continuous evaluation by RPC). For the final assessment, candidate shall appear for the end semester examinations (to be conducted by RPC) at NITIE, during the regular examination period of NITIE. The evaluation and grading system of such online course work will be done as per Fellow Policy grading rules.
