The Institute adopts a student feed back practice. In this practice each faculty is
evaluated by each student at the end of each semester. The faculty is evaluated
through 10 questionnaires each carrying 5 points each. Thus the total point is 50.
The questions are framed to judge the teaching, knowledge, punctuality, sincerity,
and leadership skills. The points obtained by each faculty is made known to the
faculty and this gives an opportunity to every faculty to improve the area in which
he is week as judged by the student. The student feedback is also used as one of the
criteria for promotion of a faculty. The Institute has recently started the student
feed back system through on line to maintain Confidentiality.

expression of socio-cultural aspects, morphology and typology of
surrounding structure, imageability of public spaces, , communication
systems and network of open spaces, etc are understood through examples
or book reviews. Interdisciplinary role of sociology, economics,
administration and governance, conservation, etc. are understood for the
specific case and incorporate. Concept: Since urban design is a vast topic,
a focus on concept is essential. This stage is supported by book reviews,
case studies of trends in design. . Interpretive techniques and analyzing
methods like visual analysis, questionnaire techniques, recording devises,
mapping and vantage points, are reviewed and chosen. Observation, task-
list, questionnaires: Basic data collection is done in-groups in relation to the
various stands. Methods of public participation in design are also planned.
Charts, matrix, maps and overlays are planned and prepared for issues
discussed in aspects of design. Analyzing and deriving conclusions from

97
the same, design guidelines are formed. Design concept, programme and
strategies: Design proposal should consider all possibilities to achieve the
aims and objectives of design. It could be in the form of guidelines, bye-
laws, phasing of design, prototype, design, or detailed design. A
combination or singular mode of design can be done. Also the strategies of
implementation and working of design in terms of economies,
administration, public-private partnership, etc. must be worked out along
with the concept. Detailed design: As per the concept the design could be
the general prototype or demonstration of design as per the guidelines and
laws proposed or physical design of part of the whole.

immediately followed by about two weeks of end-semester examinations in the subjects of the current
semesters. After 3 to 4 weeks of vacation, there will be make-up (supplementary) examinations in the
same subjects, before the commencement of the next semester.

3. Educational Process:

3.1 Credit — Based System

3.1.1 The educational process at M.I.T., Manipal uses a Credit - Based System wherein the course content
is expressed in number of credits. M.I.T. is already using a Credit - Based System since the year 2001. The
present system, which is applicable to students admitted to the first year of the B.E/ B.Arch./M.Tech/
M.Arch. courses during the academic year 2007-2008 and later incorporates several modifications and
shall be known as ‘Revised Credit— based System’ or simply ‘Revised Credit System’.
3.1.2 The course content of individual subjects — theory as well as practicals — is expressed in terms of a
certain number of credits. The number of credits assigned to a subject depends on the number of contact
hours per week. Normally, in the case of theory subjects, the number of credits is equal to the number of
contact hours (lectures & tutorials) per week, while in the case of practicals, one credit is assigned for
every three contact hours per week.

3.1.3 The course content of each semester is expressed in terms of a specified number of credits. A
student is deemed to have successfully completed a particular semester’s programme of study when
he/she earns all the credits of that semester, i.e., he/she has no F grade in any subject of that semester.

111
3.1.4 Promotion of a student to higher semesters is based on his/her earning a prescribed minimum
number of credits, as detailed in 3.5.

3.1.5 When a student earns the specified number of credits in every one of the specified number of
semesters making up the course, he/she is deemed to have completed the requirements for graduation.
This also means, a student should have an E grade or better in every subject of every semester, in order to
be eligible to receive the degree

3.1.6 The programme of study during the first year (first two semesters) of the B.E. course is common to
students of all disciplines of engineering.

3.1.7 The final (eighth) semester of the BE. Course is earmarked entirely for project work.

3.1.8 The seventh semester of B.Arch. course is entirely devoted to professional training.

3.1.9 The second year (entire fourth semester) of the M.Arch. course and the final (sixth) semester of the
MCA course, are to be utilized for project work (and industrial training wherever applicable).

3.1.10 The first four semesters of the part-time M.Tech. course will comprise course work, while the entire
Third year (fifth and sixth semesters) is devoted to project work. During each of the first four semesters, a
candidate shall register for about 50% of the total number of subjects of a regular semester of the full-time
M.Tech. course. Seminar assignment can be taken in any of the first four semesters,

3.2 Outline of Evaluation

3.2.1 The academic performance of a student is evaluated totally internally, by the concerned
teachers/departments.

3.2.2 The student performance in each theory course (subject) is evaluated out of a maximum of 100
marks — of which 50 marks are for in-semester assessment and 50 marks for the end-semester
examination.

3.2.3 The in-semester assessment in theory subjects is based on sessional tests, assignments, quizzes,
case presentations, seminars etc. The students shall be informed, sufficiently early, of the procedure
followed for in-semester assessment.

3.2.4 The student performance in practicals is also evaluated out of a maximum of 100 marks, and is
based totally on in-semester assessment. There will be no end-semester examination in practicals, the in-
semester assessment is based on the work done by the student in the class, class tests, assignments, viva
voce etc. The students shall be informed, sufficiently early, of the exact methodology of in-semester
assessment.

3.2.5 Evaluation of Project Work Dissertation/Thesis

3.2.5.1 Eighth Semester B.E. — The full-semester project work can be carried out in the
institution/industry/research laboratory or any other institution where facilities exist. There will be a mid-
semester evaluation of the work done on the project after about 8-9 weeks. This evaluation will be done by
the concerned Department/Guide and will be out of 100 marks. The final evaluation and viva voce will be
after the completion of the project work and submission of the dissertation I thesis / report. The final
evaluation and viva voce will be conducted by a jury consisting of two internal examiners (one of whom,

112
preferably, should be the internal guide). The end-semester evaluation of the project work will be out of 200
marks, while 100 marks are for the viva voce. The grade awarded to the student will be on the basis of the
total marks obtained by him/her out of 400.
3.2.5.2 Fourth semester M. Arch. / Sixth Semester MCA - A student of M.Arch course is expected to work
on the project for a minimum of 16 weeks during the second year of the course, in the institution / industry /
research laboratory or any other institution where facilities exist. There will be a mid-semester evaluation of
the work after about 8-9 weeks by the concerned Department. In the case of the Sixth Semester MCA
students, there will be a mid-semester evaluation by the concerned Department after about 8-9 weeks.
These evaluations will be out of 100 marks. The final evaluation and viva voce will be after the completion
of the project work and submission of the dissertation/thesis. The final
evaluation and viva voce will be conducted by a jury consisting of an internal examiner (preferably the
internal guide) and an external examiner from a panel of examiners approved by the concerned
Department. The final evaluation will be out of 300 marks, the break-up of which is as follows:
Evaluation by internal examiner — 100 marks
Evaluation by external examiner — 100 marks
Viva Voce — 100 marks
Total marks for the Project Work — 400 marks
The Grade awarded to the student will be on the basis of the total marks obtained by him / her out of 400.
Calculation of GPA / CGPA for the second year of the M.Arch. course will be done only after the final
evaluation of the project work and dissertation. There will be no calculation of GPA / CGPA after the mid-
year evaluation.
3.2.6 Evaluation of Architectural Design Studio/Thesis Project for students of the M.Arch. Course.
3.2.6.1 The marks for the in-semester internal evaluation and viva-voce /end-semester evaluation in

subsequent grading.

3.6.3 The aggregate percentage of attendance of the student during the semester will be entered in his /
her grade sheet of that semester.

3.7 Evaluation Procedures

3.7.1 Continuous Assessment


All courses undertaken by students are evaluated during the semester using internal system of continuous
assessment. The student is evaluated on class! tutorial participation, assignment work, lab work, class
tests, midterm tests, quizzes, and end semester examinations, which contribute to the final grade awarded
for the subject. Students will be notified at the commencement of each course about the evaluation
methods being used for the course and weightages given to the different assignments and evaluated
activities. Practicals exams are eliminated.

3.7.2 Relative Grading


Marks obtained in the in-semester and end-semester examinations are added together and a 10-point
grading system will be used to award the student with an overall letter grade for the course (subject).

3.7.3 Letter Grading System


Final evaluation of course is carried out on a TEN POINT grading system. Performance Grades and
Grade Points are as shown below.

116
A student who earns a minimum of 5 grade points (E grade) in a course (subject) is declared to have
successfully completed the course, and is deemed to be have earned the credits assigned to that course. A
course successfully completed cannot be repeated.

A student should have appeared for the end-semester examination of the prescribed course of study (mere
appearance in the continuous assessment tests is not sufficient) to be eligible for the award of the grade in
the course.

If a student is eligible for but fails to appear in the end-semester examination, he/she will be awarded an ‘I’
grade (incomplete) on the grade sheet. For all practical purposes, an ‘I’ grade is treated as an ‘F’.

If a student is not eligible to appear in the end-semester examination owing to his/her not fulfilling the
minimum attendance requirements, he/she will be required to discontinue the programme temporarily till
such time he/she fulfils the minimum attendance requirements by re-registering for those courses in which
he/she had attendance shortage, at the next available opportunity.

3.7.4 Grade Point Average (GPA) & Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

Each course grade is converted into a specific number of points associated with the grade as in 3.7.3.
These points are weighted with the number of credits assigned to a course. The Grade Point Average
(GPA) is the weighted average of Grade Points awarded to a student. The grade point average for each
semester will be calculated only for those students who have passed all the courses of that semester. The
weighted average of GPA’s of all semesters that the student has completed at any point of time is the
cumulative grade point average (CGPA) at that point of time.

CGPA up to any semester will be calculated only for those students who have passed all the courses up to
that semester.

After the results are declared, grade cards will be issued to each student which will contain the list of
courses for that semester and the grades obtained by the student, as well as GPA of that semester and
CGPA upto that semester.

117
Calculation of GPA and CGPA:
Example:

3.7.5 Re-valuation of answer papers


In case any student feels aggrieved about the evaluation, he/she shall have access to his/her answer
paper in the end semester examination which may be shown to him/her by the teacher/s concerned, If the
teacher feels that the case is genuine he/she may re-examine the case and forward a revised grade, if any,
to the Associate Director (Academic) through the Chairman of the Class Committee with justification for the
revision, with intimation to the Head of the Department. No further revision is permitted once the results are
sent to the University for record.

3.7.6 Procedure for re-valuation of answer papers

1. The aggrieved student should submit an application, along with the prescribed fee, to the Academic
Section within 7 days of the announcement of results.

2. The Academic Section will send this information to the teachers concerned.

118
3. The teachers will collect the answer scripts of the said students and attend a meeting of the Class
Committee Chairman and teachers (& co-ordinator) fixed by the Associate Director (A) on a specified date.
The student will be permitted to go through his/her papers and verify the markings and make his/her case
before the committee. If the teacher feels that the case is genuine he/she may re-examine the case and
revise the marks / grade which is to be justified and approved by the Chairman of the Class Committee.

4. The minutes of the meeting will be submitted by the Chairman of the Class Committee to the Associate
Director (A) through the HODs who will regularise the final results incorporating the changes, if any.
Negligence or carelessness on the part of any teacher should be reported to the Associate Director (A)!
Director.

5. A note on the revisions and the nature of the same should be submitted to the Director by the Associate
Director (A) for each semester.

6. Re-valuation fee will be returned to the students if the case is found genuine.

7. Once the final results are declared and validated the information will be passed on to the University and
changes are not permitted thereafter.

3.7.7 Re-registration
Students can re-register in one or more subjects of the previous semester(s) (odd semester subjects in the
odd semester only, and even semester subjects in the even semester only), provided they have F grade(s)
in that subject/those subjects, by paying the prescribed fees.

Re-registration entitles the student to attend the classes where possible (however, there is no minimum
attendance requirement), appear for the sessional tests and the end semester examinations, in the
subject(s) in which they have re-registered. Re-registered candidates will have to appear for sessional
tests/end-semester examinations along with the regular students.

3.8 End-Semester Examination and Make-up (Supplementary) Examination


3.8.1 The examinations at the end of a particular semester will be conducted only in the subjects of the
current semester. That is, at the end of the odd semester, examinations in the subjects of the odd semester
will be conducted. Similarly at the end of the even semester, examinations will be conducted in the subjects
of the even semester.

3.8.2 In the case of First year B.E., examinations in most of the subjects are conducted at the end of the
odd as well as even semester. However, at the end of a particular semester, students belonging to the
Physics group are eligible to write examinations in subjects belonging to the Physics group only. Likewise,
the students belonging to the Chemistry group are eligible to write examinations in subjects belonging to
the Chemistry group only.

3.8.3 About 4 weeks after the conclusion of the regular examinations in the current semester subjects,
there will be make-up (supplementary) examinations, before the commencement of the next semester
classes. The make-up examinations will also be in the current semester subjects only. Students who have
F grades in one or more subjects and those who missed one or more examinations in the regular series
due to serious medical reasons are eligible to appear for the make-up examinations in the relevant
subjects.

119
3.8.4 The cut-off marks for conversion of marks into grades in the make-up examination will be same as
those in the regular end-semester examination, in a particular subject.

3.9 Withholding of Results

STUDIO I: EMERGING AREAS (AIRPORT) – ARC-601
Credits: 12
Contact hours / week: 12
Aim
Commercial aviation traffic has increased ten fold in the last five years in India, a trend that is expected to
continue in the future. This coupled with technological advances gives airport design a new dimension. The
aim of this studio is to learn how to design a world-class airport that responds to increased air traffic,
changing needs of passengers, and technological advances.
Content
The objective of the course is to precisely understand how an airport functions, what exactly has to be
taken care of in terms its various activities related to passengers, luggage, ground staff and flight
personnel. Security and convenience are the two major objectives that will have to be addressed here.
Apart from design of facilities like terminal buildings, control towers, hangers etc, site planning for the
airport will also be undertaken. Site planning would include complete understanding of the factors affecting
orientation of the runway as well as constraints that have to be imposed on the area immediately adjacent
to the airport regarding development rules. Case studies and literature studies will be done prior to
formulation of requirements so as to give the design the required basis. A study tour may also be
undertaken if permitted by airport authorities.
Learning Outcome
At the end of the course, the student shall be able to design the master plan, the terminal building, the
control tower, and other related facilities of an airport.

SYLLABUS – SEMESTER II
STUDIO II: EMERGING AREAS (HOSPITAL) – ARC-602
Credits: 12
Contact hours / week: 12
Aim
The Indian healthcare sector has been growing at a frenetic pace in the past few years. The windfall began
ever since the developed world discovered that it could get quality service for less than half the price in
India. The number of patients visiting India for medical treatment has risen from 10,000 in 2000 to about
100,000 in 2005. With an annual growth rate of 30 per cent, India is already inching closer to Singapore, an
established medicare hub that attracts 150,000 medical tourists a year. Not only that, diagnosis patterns
today increasingly rely on medical tests thus requiring specific instruments to do so. The aim of this studio
is to focus on design of hospitals with the latest health care processes and technologies and at the same
time impart comfort to its patients and their attendants through space design.
Content
Case studies and literature studies will be undertaken to formulate both the quantitative and the qualitative
requirements. Efficient provision of services is one of the most important factors in proper functioning of a
hospital. Emphasis will hence be given on services and not to mention on site planning too.
Learning Outcome

130
At the end of the course, the student shall be able to design a 1500 bed high end hospital with provision for
future expansion.

Research focus.
Recent development plans and policies in the country along with increased endorsement for environment
friendly design and better quality of life for all has brought certain areas of architectural design into the
limelight. Some such emerging fields are housing, IT office complexes, retail, hotels, airports, hospitals,
entertainment parks, and townships. It is not only true that there is a growing need for these facilities but
also that the design scope and approach for these emerging sectors have expanded substantially and
changed as well in recent years in response to national policies and technological advances.
The master of architecture program is designed to create professionals who can suitably respond and
adapt to the market needs. Fundamental to the curriculum are design studios in emerging fields. These
studios shall be enriched with supporting courses in newer building materials, advanced structural systems,
energy-efficient design, urban design, interior design, earthquake resistant design, entrepreneurship and
project planning and business communication.
