SALUBRIOUS CAMPUS

The College is noted for it’s leafy green campus. The unique Art Installations (both contemporary & antique), the rich flora & fauna also, give an attractive ambience.

A multi-purpose Auditorium and A-V Hall, facilitate the conduction of inter-departmental events. The tasteful heritage doors of the Hall of Books, open into an expansive high-roofed library. Books and journals on every facet of Vocational Studies and more, are displayed. Studios, Laboratories and Exhibition Gallery 2000, apart from the regular class rooms, create an important alcove for training, discovery and adventure.

COUNSELLING

A Vocation should not be selected by you, on the basis of its popularity. There are various factors one needs to consider, before selecting your Course. These include your talent, interest and other pointers to your future Employment and Career.

A Counsellor not only helps you to decide your Vocation, but helps you to be inspired & face the contemporary challenges, effectively. Therefore, Counselling Facilities are available throughout the year and also at the time of Admissions.

OVERSEAS & FOREIGN STUDENTS

The Polytechnic shall grant admission to Overseas and Foreign Students (apart from Nepal and Bhutan), if they have a valid visa for the stipulated period. The Government of India shall give provisional admission to Foreign Students, subject to confirmation by Foreigners Registration Office.

CHANGE OF COURSE

All the courses are job-oriented. Therefore, it is important for the students to be sure about the kind of work that would interest her. She can then do well and be successful.
If she has made a wrong choice, or is in two minds she can think of migrating to another department, within 4weeks of opening the college.

LOSS AND DAMAGE TO PERSONAL PROPERTY

The Students are advised not to keep large amount of cash or valuables. The Polytechnic does not undertake
any responsibility for the safekeeping or loss of any personal property. There is however, a ‘Lost and Found’ desk in the Office. Misplaced articles are often deposited there, by honest souls.

UPGRADING & UPDATING CURRICULUM

Upgrading and updating of curriculum, is an integral part of Polytechnic. Innovative ideas, new techniques, familiarisation and practical handling of latest equipment (in Studios and Labs), are given special emphasis. This enables the students to imbibe the best and meet the changing needs of the Industry.

IDENTITY CARDS

All Students are issued Identity Cards. They are advised to keep it carefully upon them, at all times and produce them, whenever required. Please note:
1) The ID cards must be renewed, every Term. It is the Student’s responsibility, to do so.
2) Any Student on completion of the Course or on leaving the Polytechnic, is required to return them.

SAFETY & FIRST-AID

There is an in-house Doctor during college hours, evenings and available on-call , otherwise. We have a First-Aid Box both at the Office and the Hostel. Teachers and Senior Students of Holistic Health & Fitness also offer Health Care and Healing with Alternate Natural Therapies, whenever required.

SELF-EVALUATION

The College has numerous noted renowned awards, as mentioned. Vocational Teachers however, also espouse and laud the personal best, a student invests in. The fulfillment and worth felt by an individual student’s personal best, even if it may be meagre (in the Class Mean), is something to be always encouraged.

EXAMINATION ELIGIBILITY

No candidate shall be admitted to any Examination, unless the Head of the Department certifies that the candidate has met certain ascertained parameters. (E.g : Assignments, Sessional tests, Projects, Field work, Workshop module, etc.)

Since, Vocational Studies prioritize Practical Modules. A minimum of 75% attendance is mandatory, for eligibility to appear for Examinations. There is no exemption therefore,for any genuine unfortunate reason, including that of the medical or maternity. We do have a carry-over system though, and hold Supplementary Exams in September, to help such Students.

Candidate to appear for the Annual/Final Examination must obtain a minimum of 40% in Theory Papers and 50% in all the Practicals.
During the Examination, any candidate found guilty of misconduct or responsible for breach of rules and regulations. Or, she has copied / used / attempted to use, any unfair means. She shall be barred from appearing for that particular exam.

PROMOTION

A student-friendly ‘carry-over’ system, automatically allows Students to join the next class. (First Year to Second Yr/Second Yr to Third Yr).
She has to however, complete her Sessional, Submissions and Attendance, by staying back in the afternoon (12.30 p.m. - 2.30 p.m.). Rs. 3000/- must be paid before, for that. On completion of those, she can sit for the Examination, in September or April.

SUBMISSIONS

Work / file / project / assignment assigned to the Student has to be submitted on the date or deadline decided. The Teachers have the right not to accept on any account, work beyond the fixed date of submission. The onus of knowing about deadlines, submissions, tests, sessionals, attendance percentages - lie with the student, even if she is absent. No communication whatsoever, will be sent to Parents / Guardians.

PLAGIARISM

Plagiarism is to claim, the creative efforts of somebody else, as your own. The material stolen may be written, verbal, visual or auditory. Some students get in the habit of copying work from anywhere and inserting / pasting it, somewhere.
Never assume, that you can lift a part of Design / Art Work/Phrases/ Sentences and no one shall notice. Faculty are quick to recognise such misuse. Most teachers are familiar with almost anything published, in the field. Assume, they must know it well.
Therefore, if you are quoting someone, acknowledge the source and mention their name. Better still, create your own work! Even if it may not be up to the mark. It will be genuine and original. It will be yours.

GRADING SYSTEM

In many modules (esp. those of Art and Team Work), it is more objective, to allot Grades. This eliminates a subjective bias, in marking and assessment. These grades, at the time of final / annual results, get converted though, into marks.

This is in approximate accordance, to the following table:
A +       80%          B +       65%           C +         50%
A -        75%          B -       60%            C -         45%
A - -      70%          B- -      55%           C - -       40%
