CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaon is approved by A.I.C.T.E. in June 1998, was started to meet the increasing demand for competent engineers and technocrats for executing projects in both private and public sector. The college goals are clearly stated with emphasis on imparting quality education for employability as excellent technocrats and entrepreneurs. The objectives are defined in specific terms as: to be top ranked engineering college in the state, secure 10% ranks in the University every semester, secure 100% result in University exams, arrange 100% placement, and enhance resources to achieve these objectives.
The College offers B.E. degree in four disciplines : Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Information Technology and Electronics and communication.
One of this member of Management Trust in collaboration with Registrar looks after the quality aspects of this institution. Some attempts on the part of the management are visible for continuous improvement in the learning environment. There is an enhancement in the facilities and encouragement is given to the students so that they can achieve better results.
The design of the academic programme and revision of the curriculum is the responsibility of the MD University, and the College has not much role to play. The College has no representative in the academic bodies of the University. Nevertheless they communicate their view to various authorities regarding the review of Syllabus. The curriculum of some programmes need urgent updating to include latest developments and removal of obsolete topics. The curriculum pertaining to laboratory classes are of particular attention.
CRITERION II: TEACHING - LEARNING AND EVALUATION
Nearly seventy five percent of seats are filled on the basis of merit of students in CET, and the remaining seats are filled by the management. The students admitted through so called management quota are, in general, weak in studies. The differences among learners are individual. Taken care of by the College by conducting extra classes for the weaker students after the normal college hours. Identification of weaker students in a class is made from the mid-term evaluation of the students. Generally two class tests are held in each subject. The result of the College is very good. Of the 2000-04 batch, 11 students secured University ranks and 184 students got first class amongst the 261 who passed out of 268 appearing in the final. For class room teaching the use of OHP is a regular features and occasionally uses a LCD and multimedia facilities.
The College has well laid out procedure for recruitment of qualified faculty and nearly 60% of them hold Bachelor's degree in engg/technology. The evaluation of teaching is carried out by means of students feedback. Feedback is also taken from students at the time of their passing out of the College. Attempt is made to compile the feedback and draw inferences from the data.
Two faculty members have been given study leave to improve their academic qualifications. The College may have scheme for sponsoring teachers for the higher degree programmes in institutions of higher learning like IITs, NITS and Universities.
CRITERION III: RESEARCH, CONSULTANCY AND EXTENSION
The College is presently offering undergraduates programmes and the main emphasis is on teaching. The faculty members are not actively involved in research and consultancy activities. Eight teachers are Ph.D. holders and 3 have M.Phil. A few teachers have registered for Ph.D. as part time research scholars in different Institutions. Final year students are assigned project work as part-fulfillment of their course.
The faculty members may be encouraged to take up research, to publish papers in research journals and to attend national and international conferences to enable them to taken abreast with latest development in the field of teaching. The College support extension activities in area like social work, health and hygiene adult education and literacy environment. The N.S.S. undertakes community development works in the neighboring villages.
CRITERION IV: INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCES
The College has 32 class rooms and also an auditorium of 250 seats capacity. Each Class Room has been provided an OHP mounted in a rack for easy use by instructors. A room is also available with LCD projection facility. Each department has well laid out laboratory space for various laboratories. The Campus is very neat and clean.
The College has a backup 250 KVA + 62.5 KVA generator facility which is used for the various laboratories and the class rooms. In-house maintenance facility exists in the College.
The computing facilities are provided to the students by their own departments as well as by the CSE/IT department. There is a scope to increase the time for which the facilities are made available both to faculty and students. Internet facilities are available in the college and also in the boys hostel in the campus. The CAD Centre is equipped with PRO/E and AUTOCAD software packages. There is a proposal to provide MATLAB and SPICE software to students. It would be desirable to effectively use all the software packages and computer systems as the rate of obsolescence is very high in these area. Although the number of computer are adequate, some of the computer are old and need up-gradation/replacement. Budget should provide for replacement of the old computers on a policy basis every year.
The library has been shifted to the new premises and software developed by NIC (E-granthalya) is being used for library operations. It would be desirable to Bar-Code the books and also the students ID cards so that with the help of a scanner the books can be issued to the users and there will not be any manual entry required. The number of books titles need to be increased. There is a need to increase the number of research periodicals in the library. The provision of E-journals may also be beneficial to students and faculty members.
The boys hostel in the campus has recreation room where 2 TT tables, a billiard table and other indoor games facilities are provided. The hostel has mess facilities which is run on a contract basis. There is a canteen in the College premises which provides snacks and lunch to students. There is an open air theatre in the college and many cultural events are organized in the college. Students organize cultural festival in which students of nearby colleges also participate. It may be a good idea to start of TECH-FEST displaying academic projects of students. It may being out the creativity amongst students.
The college workshop has basic facilities, including a CNC lathe machine. Many jobs can be fabricated by students in the workshop.
There are college buses which bring students from nearby places to College Campus. A doctor attends to the medical needs of the students for one hour an working days.
CRITERION V: STUDENTS SUPPORT AND PROGRESSION
The College has a Training and Placement cell. The training cell helps the students in fixing summer training in industries. There is a scope to make the training cell more effective in organizing students summer training. The industries need to be contacted in advance and enough seats to be obtained so that the college places the students for summer training. On-site faculty supervision of summer trainees also needs further strengthening which will not only benefit the students but also the faculty members in becoming familiar with the current industrial practices.
For placement, the college is making efforts. The industries should be regularly approached giving them the eligible students' academic profile, project details, etc. so that the industries find the College attractive to come for Campus Placement.
Many students take GATE Examination. Arrangement for special lessons for GATE, GRE, TOEFL examination may be explored. Similarly for the students opting for MBA, CAT examinations training may be provided.
Employment Cell should make the students aware of entrepreneurship opportunities. This is the need of the hour. An elective course on 'Entrepreneurship' may be introduced for students of all disciplines.
CRITERION VI: ORGANIZATION & MANAGEMENT
The college has obtained the ISO 2001 certification for quality and all concerned deserve congratulations for this achievement. However, quality improvement is a continuous phenomenon. In all spheres of organization, consciousness about quality has to be created. For example, there is an intense effort by the departments to collect students feedback on teaching. Perhaps by online computerization of feed back forms and assignment of a performance index to a particular teacher, the data can be neatly sorted, analyzed and presented.
Faculty of the college may be involved in various administrative support tasks which can be categorized as below in a broad manner.
(a) Instruction - All teaching and evaluation related activities Time Table planning etc.
(b) Research & Extension - All research and other students projects, community outreach programmes and services
(c) Educational Development - Up-gradation of curriculum; development of new courses; organization of programmes for industries. Laboratory development, etc.
(d) Students Welfare - Admissions, Placement, Training etc.
(e) Educational Hardware - Procurement of educational hardware, S & M of instruments etc.
The above is only an indicative list. The College Organization and Management may become more effective by reorganizing on the above pattern. In addition to the above, there is a need to have a 'Computerized Data Service' for the entire College.
