Our Education System

The degree is awarded under course credit system. Each course has a well-defined syllabus with specified number of credit hours for theory and practical classes. The research component also forms a part of the curriculum for postgraduate studies.
The credit hours are regulated as follows:
- One credit hour of theory is one hour of classroom teaching.

The system of examination is internal. Besides, each student has to appear/submit assignment, presentation, quiz, surprise test, terminal examination etc.
