CURRICULUM 2009 (C-09)


State Board of Technical Education & Training Andhra Pradesh HYDERABADCURRICULUM-2009 (C-09)


Salient features in proposedSpecial features:


1) The curriculum is restructured to have 2 years ( 5 semesters) in house training at the Institution and 6 months Industrial training in an Organization / Industry relevant to the field of specialization. This is mainly aimed to improve the practical skills in the students to make them ready to cater the needs of Industry with hands on experience and with a very good practical vision. 2) An effort has been made to improve the communication skills and personality development of the students, by restructuring the English Language / communication subjects and extending them to all the three years. i.e. I Year and III , ,IV, and V semesters. The main intention behind this is to improve their communication / presentation skills and to develop their personality to enable them to stand as an useful product in the global market. 3) Practicals on Information Technology is introduced itself. in the I year curriculum

This enables the student to have good acquaintance with computers ,internet, e-Mailing from First year onwards . It also enables the student to keep pace with latest trends of the present day technology. 4) Their knowledge and skills in computers are continued by introducing CADLaboratory from II year and continued in III year as well. Much emphasis has been given in imparting practical training in Computer Aided Design and Drafting such as Auto Cad and branch related CAD packages, so that the student will have hands on experience and confidence by the time he / she completes his / her diploma course. Imparting training in CAD related areas will surely improve the potentiality of the students in getting good employment. It is also felt that this knowledge is also the need of the hour for any technician or Engineer. 5) Every effort has been made while restructuring the curriculum to mould the students to become very good Technicians with more practical visualization. This has been done by deleting un necessary and extra information and regrouping the subjects to impart theoretical inputs to the students up to sufficient depth. This saving in time has been utilized in slightly improving on the practical inputs during in-house training itself. 6) Seminars also form a part of the curriculum in all the three years. This will surely improve the abilities of the students in communication / presentation skills.


Much emphasis has been given for practical subjects by dividing the combined practical subjects in the earlier curriculum in to individual subjects by allotment of separate subject codes. Also the examination time for all practical subjects is common and is fixed as 3 hrs duration. This allows the examiners (both internal and external ) to pay much attention towards the examinee during practical / laboratory evaluation.


Branch specific features: MINING ENGINEERINGMNG -105 ELEMENTS OF MINING The following mining topics are added which are highly needed for the mining students for developing their practical skill to become successful technicians in future by restructuring the syllabus 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
