6. PROJECT

NICT curriculum has a project as an important component of ‘B’ Level course. There are three projects at ‘B’ Level. The Project is carried out by the student under guidance and support of faculty and management of the respective institute.

It is felt that such a project provides an opportunity to the student to apply his/her knowledge and skills to real life problems (including oral and written communication skills), and as such the project should be given utmost importance and priority both by the students as well as institution faculty / management in respect of its identification, planning and implementation

. Objective of the Project

The aim of the project is to give the students an integrated experience in solving a real life problem by applying knowledge and skills gained on completion of theory papers in a course at a given Level. It provides an occasion for students to develop written and communication skills; Project also helps the students to realize the importance of resource and time management, ownership of task towards deliverables, innovation and efficiency in task management apart from presentation

B Level First project :- Every candidate should do a project individually and no grouping is allowed. The project will be carried out under the guidance of the institute, if he/she is through the institute conducting an accredited course. The direct candidate will do the project in an organization where he/she is working. In that case, he/she will carry out the project under the guidance of experts/professionals from his organization.

Who could be a Supervisor / Guide :- A guide for ‘B’ Level should be a person with NICT ‘B’ level / MCA / B.Tech / equivalent / higher qualification and adequate experience (minimum 3 years) in the area in which the student has chosen the Project. In the case of a candidate from an accredited institute, the institute concerned will render all help including the nomination of the Supervisor.

Time of Submission of First ‘B’ Level Project :- ‘B’ Level student can submit the project only after clearing 5 papers from the first two semesters and appearing in remaining papers of these two semesters in the next examinations.

Credits The first Project would be approximately 350 man-hours and carries a total of 100 marks (80% for the project evaluation and 20% for the viva-voce).

Some important notes while preparing the project proposal

The following suggested guidelines may be followed in preparing the Final Project Report:

Good quality white executive bond paper A4 size should be used for typing and duplication. Care should be taken to avoid smudging while duplicating the copies. Page Specification: (Written paper and source code)

EXAMINATION PATTERN :- The theory examination for each module under the fourth revised syllabus would be for duration of three hours and the total marks for each subject would be 100. Four Practical examinations of three hours duration and 100 marks each have been introduced

. Dates for the various activities connected with examinations will be announced on NICT website, well in advance of the examinations.

Pass percentage :- To qualify for a pass in a module, a candidate must have obtained at least 50% in each theory and practical examination each

. The marks will be translated into grades, while communicating results to the candidates. The gradation structure is as below:

- Pass percentage                    Grade

Failed (<50)                                  F

50%-54%                                      D

55%-64%                                      C

65%-74%                                      B

75%-84%                                      A

85% and over                               S
