    iii.  In case of any personal reasons that need a break in study.

    For break of  study due  to  illness,  student  should  submit all necessary medical  reports
    together with the recommendation of the doctor treating him giving definite reasons for
    break  of  study  and  its  duration.  Before  joining  back  the  student  should  submit  the
    fitness certificate from the doctor who treated him.
    Students who want  to  initiate  a  start-up  venture  or  a  product  development,  have  to
    submit  a  project  report,  clearly  indicating  the  purpose,  action  plan,  technical  details,
    funding details and future plans to the college Principal. The Principal will evaluate the
    proposal by constituting an expert team consisting of a technocrat and a bank executive
    and take an appropriate decision based on the team’s recommendation. In the semester
    system followed by the University, break of study for an academic year is preferred over
    a semester break.
     Students who want a break in study due to personal reasons shall convince the Principal
    on the genuine need for it by giving authentic evidence for the same.
    In  all  cases  of  break  of  study  the  maximum  duration  for  completing  the  B.Tech
    programme will be twelve semesters.

    17.  Revaluation and Grade Improvement :

    There is no provision for improving the grade.
    The students can apply for revaluation of answer scripts by remitting the requisite fee.
    The  final mark  awarded will  be  the best  of  the  two marks.  If  the  difference  in marks
    obtained  in  revaluation  and  the  original  valuation  is more  than  15%  of  the maximum
    marks,  it will be sent for third valuation. The final mark will then be the average of the
    closer  of  the  two  marks  obtained  in  the  three  valuations  to  the  advantage  of  the
    student.  If  this  average mark  is  less  than  the  original mark,  the  original mark will  be
    retained. If 15% or more improvement is there in the revaluation, the fee collected will
    be refunded.

    18.  Grade Cards :

    Students who have written the end semester examination will be given the grade cards
    for the registered courses, in every semester by the respective colleges. On earning the
    required credits for the degree, a consolidated grade sheet for the B. Tech programme
    will be given by the University.

    19.  Classification of B.Tech Degree :

    B.Tech degree will not have any classifications like distinction or first class. There will be
    no ranks awarded.

    20.  B. Tech. (Honours)  :

    Accredited departments  in  institutions, having at  least two post graduate programmes,
    may offer B. Tech (Honours).
    Students with a CGPA above 8 at  the end of  the  fourth semester and having no credit
    arrears  only  are  eligible  for  this  option.    As  only  selected  institutions may  have  this
     provision,  students  cannot  demand  this  or  move  later  to  an  institute  where  this  is
    available.

    Students have to earn 12 additional credits to get B. Tech (Honours). Furthermore their
    CGPA at the end of the programme should be 8 or higher.
    Those  who  opted  for  B.  Tech  (Honours)  but  unable  to  earn  the  required  additional
    credits in 8 semesters  or whose final CGPA is less than 8 shall automatically fall back to
    the B.  Tech. programme.   However,  additional  course  credits  and  the  grades  thus  far
    earned by them will be shown in the grade card but not included for the CGPA.

    21.   B.Tech with Minor :

    The  areas  for  Minor  specialization  have  to  be  outside  the  core  engineering  field  of
    specialization  and  should  allow  the  interested B.Tech  student  to  focus  on  his  specific
    interest  outside  the  core  curriculum.  Such minors  are  not  currently  available  for  the
    students. Hence  the way out  is only  through external assistance  from well  recognized
    establishments and organizations and by meeting the academic standards. For a Minor
    to be approved, the student should earn 12 credits by registering for courses, projects,
    and other well defined procedures giving specialized knowledge or experience enabling
    the student to be capable of integrating or supplementing the knowledge gained in the
    B.Tech program.
    One such Minor could be  in Technology Entrepreneurship. For this the courses offered
    by  government  recognized  TBI  and  certified  by  them  as  per  the  KTU  approved
    procedures  could  be  identified.  These  courses  are  to  be  offered  outside  the  normal
    academic timings and during vacations.
    Likewise minors in any other field like music, journalism, IPR etc could also be included if
    they are offered by other universities or institutions and there are takers for them.
    The University will consider the  inclusion of  the minor  in the B.Tech Degree Certificate
    with the approval of the UGC/AICTE. CGPA for the minor will be separately given for the
    minor specialization.

    22.   Academic Calendar.  :

    seriously  and  any  such  incident  observed  or  reported  by  a  faculty  member  or  an
    invigilator associated with the examinations will be reported to the Principal who in turn
    will refer  it to DAC. On the basis of the report and evidence available or gathered, DAC
    shall  immediately  initiate an enquiry giving  the concerned student a chance  to explain
    his/her case. Based on this  the committee will recommend  the course of action  in  line
     with  the  guidelines  formulated  for  this  by  the  Controller  of  Examination  of  the
    University and forward it to the Principal for action.

    The  student can appeal  to  the Grievances and Appeals Committee  for a  relook on  the
    matter. Based on the committee’s report, the Principal will take a final decision on the
    matter.
    DAC will be headed by a department head and will have  three other  faculty members
    drawn from different departments as members. In case of malpractices in end semester

     31.  Addendum :

    1.   Calculation of SGPA/CGPA
    Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA) and Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) are
    calculated as follows.
    SGPA  =  Σ(Ci×GPi)/ΣCiwhere  Ci  is  the  credit  assigned  for  a  course  and GPi  is  the  grade
    point for that course.  Summation is done for all courses registered by the student in the
    semester. Here the failed courses are also accounted.
    CGPA =Σ(Ci×GPi)/ΣCi     where Ci  is  the credit assigned  for a course and GPi  is  the grade
    point  for  that  course.    Summation  is  done  for  all  courses  registered  by  the  student
    during all the semesters for which the CGPA is needed. Here the failed courses are also
    accounted. CGPA of all courses passed may also be given.
    CGPA for the B. Tech programme  is arrived at by considering all course credits that are
    needed for the degree and their respective grade points.

    2.  Student Activity Points
    Apart  from  technical  knowledge  and  skills,  to  be  successful  as  professionals,  students
    should have excellent soft skills,  leadership qualities and  team spirit. They should have
    entrepreneurial  capabilities  and  societal  commitment.  In  order  to  nurture  these
    qualities, KTU has  introduced activity points  to be earned by  the students during  their
    academic stay at the University covering extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. All
    students have to earn a minimum of 100 activity points from various activity segments
    listed to qualify for the B.Tech degree. Two credits are given for this on a pass/ fail basis
    and  is mandatory  for  getting  the  B.Tech  Degree.  As  no  grade  is  given  for  these  two
    credits, they are not included in the CGPA calculation. For lateral entry students joining
    from  the  third  semester,  the  activity  point  requirement  is  75.  Points  earned  by  the
    student  will  be  indicated  in  the  consolidated  academic  statement.  Colleges  shall
    consolidate  the  activity  points  earned  by  students  on  a  semester  basis  and  enter  the
    consolidated points on an academic year basis in the KTU portal. In case of NSS and NCC,
    points can be entered after the completion of two-year Programme. The portal for this
    will  only  be  open  for  a  specific  time  period.  All  documental  proof  for  awarding  the
    activity points should be obtained and kept with the college authorities to be verified by
    the Academic Auditor. 

    THE MAIN ACTIVITY SEGMENTS ARE AS GIVEN BELOW:-
    1.   National Initiatives
    2.   Sports & Games
    3.   Cultural Activities
    4.   Professional Self Initiatives
    5.   Entrepreneurship and Innovation
    6.   Leadership & Management
    The following table gives the list of activities under each of these segments, the level of
    achievement  expected,  activity  points,  evidence  needed  to  assign  the  points  and  the
    minimum duration needed for certain activities. Additional activities falling under these
    segments can be considered,  if requested by the college with full details. However this
    has to be approved by the Academic Committee of the KTU.
