For all engineering colleges affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya, the papers will be set in both languages, Hindi and English from next academic session. Students will have freedom to write the papers in language of their choice. The decision was taken by Higher and Technical Education Minister Umashankar Gupta at a meeting of officers of private universities on Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) at RGPV.
Choice Based Credit System that has been implemented by Madhya Pradesh Technical Education department will give students a golden chance to choose courses as per their talent and academic capacities. It will also maintain the coordination of courses with liberalization and globalization. Students will get a chance to continue their studies in any institution throughout the world by transferring their credits. Not only students will be benefited, but also the institutes, in a way that they will have autonomy in selection of courses. Even open learning atmosphere on the choice of students has also been taken into consideration.
It seems soon Madhya Pradesh Education Department will completely shift its focus towards Hindi. Earlier it was decided to make medical syllabus books available in Hindi. Thereafter Atal Bihari Vajpayee Hindi Vishwavidyalaya located in Bhopal has urged the Medical Council of India to allow students to write MBBS course exam papers in Hindi. Now Madhya Pradesh Technical Education Department has decided to conduct examination of engineering papers too in Hindi.
Minister Gupta said, “implementation of CBCS in all private universities should be considered. He said that government and private universities should share their best practices. He also launched e-Thesis/Desertation Submission System.” Gupta said that old research papers should also be uploaded on website.
The examination system will be semester based but students will be required to score only total 180 credits for B.E degree. Out of the total 180 credits, 90 credits would be for basic elective course and remaining 90 credits for study of basic science, engineering science and other faculties. However, 180 credits will be divided into several parts so that students will have opportunity to study various subjects. All in all, a candidate needs to secure 16 credits in each subject. For getting promoted to next year, candidates should have earned minimum 22 credits in previous year.
Students are also required to attend classes regularly under this system. Credits will also be given on the basis of their attendance. Students should obtain prescribed credits in every subject paper. CPG grade will be given to students by multiplying credits earned through attendance with credit earned through exam. 5 main subjects including basic science core, department core, engineering science core, humanities core and under alternative, departmental alternative and open alternative will be taught under the new system.
Advantages of the new system
- If in case the student fell ill, they have the choice to study less and earn less credits provided they duly compensate the same in next year.
- As all major higher education institutions in the world are adopting uniform credit system in the same way, students can make right choice of credits and undertake constant evaluation so as to check their academic capability.
