Degree and Requirements

The University shall follow the choice-based credit system. The total credit requirement for the award of the B. Tech. degree shall be around 160.

A student will be eligible for a degree with B.Tech (Hons.) in Computer Science & Engineering with specializations in Digital Forensics and Cyber Security/Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning/Cloud Computing/Gaming Technology/Data Science .by earning additional 18-20 credits in the given particular domain as per provision prescribed by the AICTE.

Semester system and Choice Based Credit System (CBCS)

A credit-based system of study and students’ performance/progress is measured by the number of credits that he/she has earned, i.e. completed satisfactorily. Based on the course credits and grades obtained by the student, the grade point average is calculated.

  • Course credits assignment

    Each course has a certain number of credits assigned to it depending upon its duration in periods for a lecture, tutorial, and laboratory/clinical practice in a week. A few courses/activities are without credit (s) and are referred to as Audit Pass Courses (APC) but are mandatory to pass as partial fulfillment of the award of a degree.

  • Earning of Credits

    At the end of every course, a letter “Grade” shall be awarded in each course for which a student has registered. On obtaining a minimum Pass Grade, the student shall accumulate the course credits as Earned Credits. A student’s performance shall be measured by the number of credits that he/she has earned and by the weighted grade point average. Grades obtained in the audit courses shall not be counted for computation of grade point average, however, shall be mandatory to pass as partial fulfillment of the award of a degree.


For the Award of Degree of a Programme B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering in specialization, he/she has to earn a minimum of 180 credits during the 4-year duration of the programme in 8-semesters. The total credits required to be earned have been further classified under two baskets of courses: “Compulsory Courses Basket (CBB)”, and “Elective Courses Basket (ECB)”. A total of 144.5 credits are required to be earned under CBB and 35.5 credits under ECB.

All courses under CBB are required to be qualified and cleared/pass by every student enrolled under the programme and are semester-wise listed in the study scheme along with the credits assigned to each course.

Under Elective Courses Basket (ECB), there will be three types of courses:

  • Semester-wise courses offered by the department itself
  • Open/Inter-disciplinary courses offered at the Institute/University level notified from the office of Dean-Academics.
  • Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) available on Study Webs of Active-Learning for Young Aspiring Minds (SWAYAM)Platform or any other platform as recommended by UGC/AICTE and notified from the office of Dean-Academics.

Each course shall have credits assigned to it. The student shall be required to register courses every semester for as many courses/credits specified under the “Elective Courses Basket” depending upon his/her interest, capability/pace of learning, and availability of time slot (without any clash in time table) to earn all required total credits under the “Elective Courses Basket” during the entire programme duration.

However, for registration of courses [including courses under “Compulsory Courses Basket”, “Elective Courses Basket” and Previous Semester Courses (wherein he/she was declared ineligible based on attendance or he/she could not clear the course within permissible given chances)], if any, the maximum limit in a semester shall be 30 credits.
