PREFACE
Thapar University (Formerly Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology) is a premier
educational and research Institute located in the 250-acre lush green campus,
known as Thapar Technology Campus (TTC), in the historic city of Patiala. It came
into existence in 1956 through an imaginative collaboration between the then State
of Patiala and the East Punjab States Union (PEPSU), the Central Government and
the Patiala Technical Education Trust (PTET) founded by the great captain of Indian
Industry, Late Lala Karam Chand Thapar. The goals of the University are embodied in
the Trust Deed inked on April 9, 1956. Thapar University is today recognized among
the leading privately managed engineering institutions of the country and the best
of its kind in the north-western region of India.
Thapar Polytechnic (TP) College established in 1956, Thapar Centre for Industrial
Research and Development (TCIRD) established in 1982, Centre of Relevance and
Excellence (CORE) and Science and Technology Entrepreneurs Park (STEP)
established by D.S.T., Government of India are other four institutions that exist on
Thapar Technology Campus.
As a fitting recognition of its laudable achievements and its pioneering role in
promoting the growth and development both at National and International levels,
we were granted full autonomy and the status of a Deemed University in 1985 by the
MHRD on the recommendations of the UGC.

From the Directors Desk

Thapar University has a tryst with excellence. We strive for excellence by ensuring a
trinity of superlatives- students, faculty and infrastructure; cohabit in a congenial and
conducive environment. Since its inception, the University has remained committed to
creation, archiving and dissemination of knowledge in Science, Engineering and
Technology for the service to the humanity. We aspire to carry out high quality research
in the frontiers of technology as well as develop professionals with sound knowledge
and skill, respect for profession, social and national values and ethics.

Our journey of 57 years through the horizon of technical education has culminated in
an inclusive expansion into all areas of engineering, science and business
management. From a beginning as an engineering college offering degrees Electrical,
Mechanical and Civil Engineering Thapar University has grown into a University with
eight departments, five schools and eight centres offering degrees at undergraduate,
postgraduate and doctoral levels. We have been given the highest ratings by the
accrediting agencies like the National Board of Accreditation and University Grants
Commission- NAAC and the surveys such as NASSCOM and India Today. However,
success of more than 18400 alumni of the University makes us feel more fulfilled. The
University shares a special bond with the industries through its unique project semester
program. As a result, the industries have happily rewarded our students by offering
higher compensation and hiring them in larger numbers.
Research has been a corner stone of the University. Major research projects supported
by the European Union, Naval Research Board, Department of Science and
Technology, Department of Biotechnology and others are underway. We encourage
students to fructify their research through entrepreneurship. For this purpose, Thapar
Centre for Industrial Research and Development, Science and Technology
Entrepreneurship Park, TIFAC-CORE on Agri-Industrial Biotechnology and L. M. Thapar
School of Management have been set up on campus. Our endeavour shall be to offer
the students of Thapar University a wholesome, enjoyable and fulfilling experience of
learning.

To foster all round development of students we have a large number of cultural, sports,
social and scientific activities. We regularly invite the leaders and motivators of all walks
of life and encourage the students to share time and space with them. I wish all
candidates success and look forward to a great time with them on Thapar Technology
Campus.

16.12 EVALUATION OF STUDENTS

The University strives to foster in the minds of engineering students the capacity for
continuous learning and critical appriasal courage and integrity, a strong sense of
service and professional ethos through an academic environment on the campus and
through curricular and co-curricular activities.

At the end of the semester the students are awarded a letter grade in each course
depending upon the overall performance. The evaluation is carried out through one
mid semester test, one End-Semester Examination, unannounced and announced
quizzes, laboratory exercises, tutorial work, home assignments, and seminars etc.

Letter grades will be awarded to the students as indicated below. Each letter grade
indicates the level of performance in a course and has a grade point for purposes of
computing the CGPA, as given below.
Letter Grade Performance Grade Point
A
+
Outstanding 10
A Excellent 10
B Good 8
C Average 6
D Marginal 4
E Exposed 2
F Fail 0
I Incomplete
X Inadequate Attendance /Dropped/Unregistered

A
+
, A, B, C & D grades: These grades are the pass grades.

A
+
grade shall be awarded in rare cases i.e award of this grade is not mandatory and
shall be awarded where performance of the student is exceptional among the students
getting A grade. Even the best student of any class needs to be good enough to be
awarded the A
+
grade.DoAA shall review all A
+
grade to be awarded.

E, F, I, X grades: If these grades are awarded in any course then that course shall be
termed as backlog course.

E grade: This grade is awarded when a student has attended at least 75% of the
Lectures, Tutorials and Practicals (as per the teaching load of the course) and fails in
the evaluation process.

F grade is a fail grade and student have to register for that course again when it is
offered next. A student, who even having 75% attendance and after appearing in end
semester exam scores very low marks shall be awarded F grade.

X grade: This grade is also a fail grade and is awarded as a result of detention(s) on the
basis of shortage of attendance. A student, who earns X grade in a course, shall
register for that course again when it is offered next. A student who is allowed to drop a
semester shall also be awarded X grade in the courses of dropped semester.
I grade: This grade is awarded when a student having good academic record is unable
to appear in the end semester exam due to compelling reasons justifiable to Instructor
in charge. The DoAA shall receive the application of the case alongwith relevant
evidence before the award of grades so that if found fit, the student shall be awarded I
grade by DoAA.

SGPA is the weighted average of all the grades awarded to a student in a particular
semester. SGPA is computed by dividing the total grade points earned with the total
number of credits registered in that semester.

SGPA = CjGj / Cj

where Cj denotes credit assigned to the jth course taken by the student in the
concerned semester and Gj indicates the grade point equivalent to the letter grade
obtained by the student in jth course.

CGPA is the weighted average of all the grades awarded to a student since his entry
into the University up to and including the latest semester and is computed as follows.

CGPA = (Ci Gi) / (Ci)

where Ci is the number of credits assigned to i
th
course and Gi is the grade point
equivalent to the letter grade obtained by the student in the i
th
course. When a student
repeats a course, the new grade will replace the earlier one in the calculation of the
CGPA.
While calculating CGPA , I or X grades secured by the student shall not be taken into
account.

Dean, Academic Affairs, will approve registration of students who have backlog
course(s) in each semester. However, the student may be allowed to study an
equivalent course (against the backlog course), if necessary, with the approval of
Dean of Academic Affairs. The decision of Dean of Academic Affairs with regard to
their registration of courses in each semester would be final and binding on such
students.
A student with E or I grade may opt for any of the following options.
(a) She/he may register for that course again when it is offered next in subsequent
semester(s).
OR
(b) The student may register and appear for a single examination i.e Auxiliary
Examination conducted immediately after the end semester exam in which he/she has
earned E or I grade, on a date notified by the DoAA office. The student will not
have to attend any classes. A course Instructor will, however, be designated to
conduct the examination and guide the student. The grades will be decided by the
concerned Instructor in consultation with the Head of the Department.
If a student who gets E grade misses the Auxiliary Exam conducted immediately after
the end semester exam in which he/she has earned E grade, he/she shall have to
register afresh for that course again when it is offered next i.e. she/he cannot appear in
the subsequent Auxiliary Exams.
For MBA program: In a year, auxiliary exams will be conducted after 2
nd
and 3
rd

trimester. Further, the auxiliary exam after 2
nd
trimester shall be for the backlogs of first
and second trimester and auxiliary exam after 3
rd
trimester shall be for the backlogs of
third trimester only.

Grading in the auxiliary exam shall be done as under:
- The Auxiliary exam shall be treated as reconduct of the end semester exam of
that course in just concluded semester.
- The grades shall be awarded by substituting the end semester marks with the
marks secured in Auxiliary Exam.
- Candidates appearing with E grade can be awarded D grade as the
maximum grade.
- The cut off limits of the exam conducted in just concluded semester shall be
taken into consideration for award of grades.

The student will have to pay an examination fee to be notified by DoAA.

a) Summer Term: In addition to above, students securing E or F or I or X grade
can be offered maximum of two backlog course(s) in summer term subject to
availability of faculty. The schedule of summer term, the fees to be deposited
and other relevant conditions will be subject to the approval of the Chairperson,
Senate on the recommendation of DoAA. During summer term, if found fit, DoAA
can allocate maximum of 3 courses to the final year students. Such relaxation
shall be given only in the cases where students are left with 3 backlogs for
completion of degree.
In the summer term, regular classes will be held if the number of students is 4 or more.
The course will be offered as a self-study course if the number of students is less than
four. The students with F or X grade will not be allowed to take a course in Summer
Term as a self-study course. An instructor will, however, be appointed and all the
components of evaluation will be completed in each case. The decision of
Chairperson, Senate in running these courses shall be binding on the students.
Semester examination results will be declared by Registrars Office after obtaining
approval from DoAA.

Registrar shall publish the result of the students indicating their grades and the CGPA
obtained, on the 10-point scale.

At the end of each semester (i.e., after End Semester Examination) students will be
supplied a grade card indicating the grades secured in each course and up to date
CGPA.

Once grades are submitted, any correction thereafter will only be made with the
approval of Director on the recommendation of the DoAA.


When a student repeats a course the new grade will replace the earlier one in the
calculation of the SGPA and CGPA.

If a student after obtaining pass grades (A/B/C/D) in all the courses at the end of the
programme obtains a CGPA less than minimum CGPA required for the award of
degree, he/she may be allowed by DOAA to improve the CGPA by studying the
course(s) in which he/she has earned D grade(s) provided the said courses are
offered in the semester under consideration .First preference will be given to the
professional course(s).This concession of additional semester (s) for improvement will be
counted within maximum duration permissible for the programme.
