Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University (MRS-PTU), Bathinda has rolled out new schemes and innovative degree level courses from the academic session 2019-20 to attract engineering aspirants.

For giving impetus to interdisciplinary needs of Industry and better job prospectus of its qualified engineers, MRSPTU in its 3rd standing academic council meeting under the chairmanship of Vice Chancellor Prof. Mohan Paul Singh Ishar has given approval to start B.Tech Honors and B.Tech Minor Engineering from the academic session starting w.e.f. July, 2019.

NEW COURSES IN AERONAUTICAL AND AEROSPACE ENGINEERING

University offers a wide array of World class courses including 75 under graduate, post graduate and Skill development courses in Science and Technology, Management, Architecture, Aeronautical, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Food Science and Technology, Computer Applications, Skill Certification courses, newer teaching and research programmers through its affiliated/ constituent colleges and Campus. MRSPTU also offer advanced research programme leading to Ph.D in all disciplines. 

Spokesman of the university said, a student will be eligible to get under graduate degree with Honors or additional Minor engineering if he/she completes an additional 20 credits. These could be acquired through MOOCS.

As per the Scheme a student earning 160 credits in particular stream shall be awarded B.Tech, and with 20 additional credits in the same stream he/she will be awarded B.Tech (Honours) in the branch.

These additional credits should preferably be earned through online mode using Government of India run platforms of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) and Study Webs of Active Learning for Young Aspiring Minds (SWAYAM).

It will be a boon for the students who wish to diversify in different domains and want value addition in their degrees,” said VC.

“All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), in its model curriculum for Undergraduate degree courses in engineering and technology 2018, had made provision for the same, " the spokesman added.

Giving more details, he said for B.Tech with minor engineering, a student studying a particular course (say Electronics Engg.) shall be able to earn a degree of B.Tech (ECE) with minor in Computer Science. A mechanical engineering student can diversify his/her domain with a minor in Computer Science or Electronics Engineering.

Dean Academics Affairs, MRSPTU, Dr. Savina Basal told that Board of Studies of different disciplines have been asked to formulate the procedures for the same and the programme shall be open from the upcoming session 2019-20. 

NEW COURSES: Keeping in view the rising demand in fastest growing Aviation industry, MRS-PTU also started new degree level courses B. Tech (Aeronautical Engineering) and B.Tech. Aerospace Engineering (Avionics) at Punjab State Aeronautical Engineering College, Patiala, from the current academic session 2019-20.

Aeronautical Engineering is branch of engineering that deals with the design, development, testing and production of aircraft and related systems. While Aerospace Engineering, generally known as ‘Rocket Science’, is a Specialized Field of Engineering that involves the science & engineering of aircrafts and spacecrafts including aeroplanes, helicopters, rockets, missiles, space stations, space-shuttles and many more such flying vehicles operating within and outside the earth’s atmosphere.

Avionics are the electronic systems used on aircraft, artificial satellites, and spacecraft. Avionic systems include communications, navigation, the display and management of multiple systems, and the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to perform individual functions.

The Mechanical department of the University also launched B. Tech. Mechatronics from the current session. Mechatronics, which is also called mechatronic engineering, is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the engineering of both electrical and mechanical systems, and also includes a combination of robotics, electronics, computer, telecommunications, systems, control, and product engineering.

The University offers a wide array of World class courses including 75 under graduate, post graduate and Skill development courses in Science and Technology, Management, Architecture, Aeronautical, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Food Science and Technology, Computer Applications, Skill Certification courses, newer teaching and research programmers through its affiliated/ constituent colleges and Campus. MRSPTU also offer advanced research programme leading to Ph.D in all disciplines.
