22.1 CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT

1.   The Academic Council of the University, which is a blend of senior academia and industrial personnel, is
     the overall custodian of the academic rigour that is followed by the students and faculty. The Academic
     Council has constituted Board of Studies (BOS) (one for each Constituent School) to review the curricula
     which was developed by benchmarking it against similar programmes offered nationally and internationally
     The BOS meet and review the curricula for its academic content and industry relevance so as to fulfill the
     international standards, academic standards and the latest industry requirements. The recommendations of
     the BOS are then sent to Academic Council for approval.
2.   Basic theory and fundamentals of every course are imparted through experienced professors who have a
     wide exposure and have excelled in their respective teaching and research areas. The practical aspects are
     covered by inviting experienced / working professionals from the industry in specific areas to sharpen
     student’s grasp of the course.
3.   The industrial aspects are further strengthened by way of learning through actual field visits specific to
     programmes of study under the guidance of faculty members. In Addition, students are encouraged in
     preparation of assignments and presentation on critical aspects / areas of the course. This approach helps
     the students in developing better understanding and grasp of critical areas of the course and in-depth
     information on international operational and design standards. The students are also encouraged to
     understand practical aspects of theory through tutorials and assignments solving practical problems faced
     in the industry.
4.   With a view to upgrade the students on the latest developments, in specific areas highly placed professional
     speakers are invited from the industry to discuss developments taking place in their respective areas followed by
     visits to national research laboratories / institutions of national importance. This exposes the students to working
     scientists and provides them an opportunity to develop familiarity with the problems / areas which are being
     investigated for future technological needs.
5.   Another major step followed at UPES to make the learning process more practical for students is their
     summer internships for two months with the industry to work on well-defined projects under the direct
     guidance of hard-core professionals. The projects for this purpose are chosen in advance as per the
     requirement of the industry / organizations and the students are asked to apply the knowledge gained while
     on campus to find solution or develop applications which help the industry to improve operations /
     efficiency.
