16 02 1. INTRODUCTION National Institute of Technology, Rourkela was established on 15th August, 1961 as Regional Engineering College jointly supported by Government of India and Government of Odisha. The college started with only three under-graduate programmes in the disciplines of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Civil Engineering and was affiliated to Utkal University in the beginning and later to Sambalpur University in The college had its natural growth over time and kept on adding programmes like Metallurgical & Materials Engineering (1963), Chemical Engineering (1963), Mining Engineering (1979), Computer Science & Engineering (1986), Applied Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering (1987), Ceramic Engineering (1994), Physics (1961), Chemistry (1962), and Mathematics (1965). The post graduate programmes and the research programmes in select branches were initiated. As it grew the college was made academically autonomous in 1992 but remained affiliated to Sambalpur University. However the turn-around came on 26th June, 2002 when the college was declared as National Institute of Technology and was completely taken to the fold of Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government India as a centrally funded institution and was made a Deemed University. The administrative structure, the source of finance and the status of the institute got reformed. The objective was redefined. National Institute of Technology, Rourkela prepared itself for a giant leap in every front. The culture and the ethos of the institute took contemporary turn to promote healthy and productive attitudes towards learning, life and work and to develop ambitions of achievements; striving for the maximum for every stakeholder. The NIT Act by Government of India came into force on 15th August, 2007 and the institute was declared as an Institute of National Importance. Working in the line of the Act, the institute went through a complete metamorphosis. The prime mover had been set to go through major transformation. The NIT era has so far been a great journey. New programmes like Communication Engineering (2005), Biotechnology and Medical Engineering (2007), Life Science (2009), Industrial Design (2010), MBA (2010), Development Studies (2010), Planning and Architecture (2013), Food Process Engineering (2013), Earth and Atmospheric Science (2013) and 27 different specializations in the post graduate programme of various disciplines have been added considering the market demand. In the coming academic session post graduate programmes in Polymers, Plastics and Wood Engineering under Mechanical Engineering and Business Intelligence and Analytics under Computer Science and Engineering Department will be started. Today NIT Rourkela stands to be the institute with the widest range of programmes among all NITs. New and innovative additions to the galaxy of curricula along-with increase in the intake capacity to every programme are attracting bright students from across the country. All academic programmes have been modified and expanded considering the present scenario of technological and scientific developments. The research programmes have been given grander emphasis. Sponsored research programmes are given a thrust and the highly motivated faculties are continuously trying to multiply it by manifold. The research programmes in all the Departments have seen phenomenal growth. The infrastructure, such as academic buildings, laboratory facilities, students hostels, faculty and staff residence, common facilities and conveniences have been created and are continuously scaled up to cater to the present as well as future needs. continues to be ranked as one of the top institutes of the country. The institute, now, is placed only amongst a few counted one. It attracts the best students from the country for its Bachelor s, Master s and Doctoral programmes, and in the 54 years of its existence, more than students have graduated from NIT Rourkela. The alumni of the institute have distinguished themselves through their achievements and contributions in diverse fields, and the engagement with the alumni continues to grow. Research is an increasing focus of activity of the institute coupled with strong efforts to see that the fruits of the research are translated into commerce through licensing or through startups. The institute continues to attract outstanding faculty members, and this is at the core of the growth of the institute. Presently, we have 275 faculty members the largest by far among all the NITs with many of them internationally reputed for their research contributions. It may be worth mentioning that NIT Rourkela is the first NIT to adopt IIT-like 4-Tier flexible faculty structure and has been attracting bright and reputed faculty into its fold. The Institute continues to build links with international and national peer universities to enhance research and educational programmes.

22 08 3. EDUCATION SYSTEM B. Tech. / M. Tech. Dual Degree / Integrated M. Sc. Degree i) Admission Procedure Admission to all Undergraduate courses and 5-year Dual Degree / Integrated Degree Programmes is made in the Autumn Semester at the first year level through the national JEE (main) examination and allocation of seats is made through the Central Seat Allocation Board (CSAB). Besides, a specified number of foreign nationals / NRI selected under the policy laid down by Government of India are admitted directly to the 1st year of any of the courses. ii) Programme Structure The duration of the programme leading to B. Tech. degree is four years and Dual Degree B. Tech. & M. Tech. and Integrated M. Sc. is five years. The curricula for the different degree programmes are proposed by the respective departments and recommended by the Undergraduate Programme Evaluation Committee (UGPEC) before being approved by the Senate. The departments also prepare the syllabus of each programme and constituent courses containing the scope of studies, detailed instructions to be imparted, course outcome and course objectives. The curricula and syllabi are approved by Senate. All subjects have a Lecture-Tutorial-Practical (L-T-P) component to indicate the contact hours. The Tutorial (T) or Practical (P) component may be absent in certain courses. Separate pure laboratory subjects (O-O-P) may exist in certain cases as decided by the Senate. All subjects have a credit count C. Teachings of subjects are reckoned in terms of credits. In each of the first two semesters, two credits are assigned for Extra Academic Activity (EAA) consisting of 3 hours activity per week. The EAA is chosen from N.S.S., N. C. C., or any other physical education approved by Senate. The curricula of B. Tech. programmes also includes compulsory Short-term Industrial or Research Experience (SIRE) of 8 weeks duration after 6th semester in any reputed industry, research organization or a reputed institute which is evaluated in the 7th semester. Research project carries a total of 10 credit distribution between 7th & 8th semester. The summary of credits assigned to research projects and seminar and technical writing is presented in Table-4. Course Structure of M. Tech. Dual Degree from 1st to 6th semester is similar to B. Tech. courses of the department. The 7th & 8th semester typically contains five theory courses and three laboratory courses. SIRE is evaluated at the end of 7th semester. The research project starts on completion of 8th semester (during Summer Vacation which is evaluated at the end of 9th semester) and continues till end of 10th semester. The curricula of 9th & 10th semester constitute two theory courses, research project and seminar and technical writing. Total project credit is 40. The summary of credits assigned to research projects, seminar and technical writing is presented in Table-4. iii) Registration Students are registered in 2nd year (3rd semester) at the end of 1st year on completion of following: (a) Completion at least 40 credits of courses out of the prescribed course for the first two semesters and secured P or higher grade. (b) Obtain a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of not lower than (c) (d) (e) If the CGPA at the end of the first year is between 5.00 and 5.69 (both inclusive), the student is permitted to suspend studies and resume it in the following year along with the next batch of students. The B. Tech. programme must then be completed within 6 years of the original admission. However, if the CGPA is less than 6.00 in the repeat year, the student needs to leave the Institute to pursue other academic avenues. While registering for 3rd, 5th or 7th semester, a student may register for backlog courses of 1st, 3rd or 5th semester and while registering for 4th, 6th or 8th semester, may register for backlog courses of 2nd, 4th or 6th semester. A student has to appear for both Mid-Semester and End-Semester examinations and the grades are awarded based on the marks of the examinations. The Teacher s assessment component is carried forward from the original evaluation. The registration for backlog papers is done at the time of semester registration. Backlog courses are awarded one grade lower than the secured grade. ( P grade remains as P as exception). A student may opt to repeat a course in which case he/she need to attend classes, and there is no reduction of grade awarded. In such case they are not eligible for awards / medals and prizes which are based on academic performance. If regulations and examination schedule otherwise permit, a student may register for spring semester elective in autumn semester and vice-versa. A student may change an elective course if the pre-requisites are satisfied. If a student has completed 8 semesters of study but has F grades in few course, he must register for them as full time courses and attend classes in term of 9th semester if time table permits. The time limit for completion of B. Tech. programme is 6 years.

23 09 (f) It is necessary for students to maintain a minimum CGPA of 6.00 at all times. If the CGPA falls below 6.00, he / she should enter into slow place programme in own interest. When a student of 1st semester gets a CGPA score below 6.00 or a student of any other semester scores CGPA below 6.00 for two consecutive semesters, parents are required to visit the Institute and are apprised of the position. Students of 3rd or higher semesters are permitted to register in the next semester only in slow pace, in such a manner that he has a possibility of improving his CGPA above Parents and students give an undertaking that they are aware of the possibility of leaving the Institute. If at the end of 3rd consecutive semester, CGPA remains below 6.00; the student will enroll only in backlog courses with P grade with no new course. If a student gets CGPA below 6.00 in the 4th consecutive semester, he / she must leave the Institute to pursue other avenues of study. In truly exceptional circumstances, if the arithmetic of the grade card dictate that the required improvement can only be achieved in at least 2 semesters, the Senate, at its discretion may sanction 2 semesters instead of one to improve CGPA with a maximum of 4 new courses spanning over two semesters.
