Chapter 1

GENERAL INFORMATION, RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMME




1.1 Introduction

National University pursues a policy of continuous updating and improving the new four-year course curricula having 8(eight) semesters carrying total credits 145 for bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering (B.Sc.Engg.). This is to take into account the modern developments in different disciplines of study, especially in the field of Computer Science and Engineering, where things move too fast. Detailed syllabuses for all the courses have been framed keeping in view the objectives of National University in this regard. Computer Science and Engineering being a major discipline has to be considered in a special way, as it has got a professional backing and a large employer group needing the services of its graduates.


1.2 Admission

Students will be admitted in the first semester, first year of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) in affiliated colleges / institutes as per rules of the National University.

Students passing HSC in the current year or one year ago with minimum GPA 2.0 in SSC and HSC (Science/Diploma in Engineering/Equivalent) examination having at least “C” grade in Physics and Mathematics can apply. Students passing General Certificate Examination (GCE) in at least 3 subjects in “O” level and 2 in “A” level having at least “C” grade in Physics and Mathematics can apply. One year break of study is acceptable.
1.3 Duration of Each Semester

The duration of each semester will be 18 weeks whose breakdown is as follows:

Classes 14 Weeks

Recess before Semester Final Examination 2 Weeks

Semester Final Examination (approximately) 2 Weeks

Total 18 weeks


1.4 Course Designation System

Each course is designated by a three letter code identifying the department offering it, followed by a three-digit number having the following interpretation:

 The first digit indicates Year.

 The second digit indicates Semester.

 The last digit indicates courses number.
1.5 Assignment of Credits

The assignment of credits to a theoretical course follows a different rule from that of a practical course.

Theoretical Courses: One lecture of 1-Hour duration per week per semester is equivalent to 1.0 credit.

Practical Courses: One lab session of 3-Hour duration per week per semester is equivalent to 1.5 credit. 1 credit is equivalent to two hours of lab work per semester per week.



  • The project must be initiated in 7th semester.


1.6 Types of Courses

In CSE, there are two types of courses, namely i) core courses, which form the nucleus of the bachelor's degree program and General Education (GED) courses, the study of which will be useful for the students to grow as a good citizen with social values and norms. A student has to complete the entire designated courses for the 0award of degree.


1.7 The Grading System

The total performance of a student in a given course is based on a scheme of continuous assessment. For theory courses this continuous assessment is made through a set of quizzes, class evaluation, class participation, homework assignment and a semester final examination. The assessment in laboratory / practical courses is made through observation of the student at work during the class, viva-voce during laboratory hours and quizzes.

Each course has a certain number of credits, which describes its corresponding weights. A letter grade with a specified number of grade points is awarded to each course for which a student is registered. A student's performance is measured both by the number of credits completed satisfactorily and by the weighted average of the grade point earned. A minimum grade point average (GPA) is essential for satisfactory progress. A minimum number of earned credits also have to be acquired in order to qualify for the degree.

Letter grades and corresponding grade points will be awarded in accordance with the provisions shown below:





Letter Grade

40% to less than 45%

F*

0.00

less than 40%

* Subject in which the student gets F grades shall not be counted towards credit hours requirements and for the calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA).


1.8 Examination Rules

There will be at least two in-course examinations to be conducted by the college/institutes for each course and marks along with the grade be submitted to the Examination Controller of NU. Semester final examination will be conducted by the National University on six months basis for each semester. Semester final examination of each theoretical course will be held for 3 hours and there will have 6 questions in which 4 questions must be answered. Each question carrying 20 marks should contain two or more parts (e.g 1.(a), 1(b),1(c), …).Two examiners will evaluate the semester final examination scripts separately. If the variation of marks of two examiners is 20% or more, the third examiner will be appointed to reexamine the scripts. The marks will be finalized by averaging of minimum variation of two examiners.


1.9 Distribution of Marks for Theoretical Courses

Twenty percent (20%) of marks of all theoretical courses shall be allotted to two in-course examinations. The answer scripts of in-course examinations are sent to the Controller of Examination of National University if required. The rest of the marks (80%) for each theoretical course will be allotted to the Semester Final Examination, which will be conducted centrally by the National University. There are internal and external examiners for each course in the Semester Final Examination of three hours duration. Distribution of marks for a given theoretical course is as follows:

In-course examinations 10%+10% = 20%

Semester Final Examination (3-Hour Duration) 80%

Total Marks 100%

1.10 Distribution of Marks for Practical Courses

The practical semester final examinations have to be conducted by internal and external examiners. Practical Final Examination that is conducted centrally by the National University will be held on 60 marks for each course. Marks distribution of each practical course is stated below.

In-course examination (Practical) 40%

Semester Final Examination (3 hours) 60%

Total 100%
Distribution of 60% Practical Marks:


Electronics/ Hardware/ Communication/ Equivalent others lab

1.11 Evaluation of Project Work
The evaluation of the project work, for grading will be as follows

1. Project Defense 40% of marks

2. Project Report 60% of marks

A panel of examines prepared by exam control appointed by NU, will conduct the project defense and also examine the project report. The project evaluation can be conducted by one, or more centers, selected by authority of NU. At least two members for the panel of examines must be present for project defense and evaluation.




1.12 Calculation of GPA

Grade Point Average (GPA) is the weighted average of the grade points obtained in all the courses passed / completed by a student. For example, if a student passes / completes n courses in a semester having credits of C1, C2, ......, Cn and his/her grade points in these courses are G1, G2, ......, Gn respectively then



GPA =

The Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is the weighted average of the GPA obtained in all the semesters passed / completed by a student. For example, if a student passes / completes n semesters having total credits of TC1, TC2,… TCn and his/her GPA in these semesters are GPA1, GPA2, ...., GPAn respectively then
