Reference material

Reading material will be provided in class if required

Name of reference books and other reference material will be provided time to time

Reference Material

Term project
Term Project

  • Main Project

    • Individual projects will be assigned to students based on weekly exercises (will start from week 3rd)

  • Project report due at the day of presentation

  • Mini Project

    • Kalabagh Dam: All good and Bads

  • Split the class into two groups

    • One will be the ‘pro’ group and the other will be the ‘against’ group

    • By mid semester there will be a debate between the two groups

    • Each group will be given 25min to talk about their views and support them with facts and figures (reliable references needed)

    • Then there will be a question/answer session between the two groups. Audience may also ask question

Homework project quiz exams

  • Homework: Students will be required to do homework and submit on the date mentioned on homework

  • Workshop Assignments: Each student will be assigned an exercise after each lab topic covered that will eventually be converted into term project

  • Quiz: Several in class Quiz (both surprise and informed)

  • OHT: 2 in class OHT (approximately 1/3 of the course coverage)

  • Lab Midterm: 1 Lab midterm (decide later)

  • Project Presentation: On week before Final Exam

  • Final Exam: Comprehensive coverage of the course during the last week of semester
