There is good news for the students taking admission in Rajasthan technical university (RTU) Kota. The RTU is going to make a little change in the syllabus of BTech first semester from the next academic session 2012-13.
Engineering mechanics, which is being taught currently in the first semester, will be taught in second semester and environmental engineering will take its place in first semester. An additional subject to polish English language will be introduced by the name of communication technique (CT).
It has been observed in the last few years that several first semester students found engineering mechanics difficult to understand and failed in it.
Now, the students will have physics, chemistry, mathematics, environmental engineering and communication technique in the first semester.
The change has been done in RTU for the first time. The admission process in RTU completes by October and semester exams are usually held in February. It was a pending demand of students since long as they would not get enough time to prepare for the semester examinations.
Giving information, dean of faculty of engineering H D Charan said, “Students found engineering mechanics difficult, so we have introduced it in the second semester.
Also, it was noted that spoken English and communication skills of the students needed improvement. Therefore, CT has been introduced in the first semester.”
The RTU over the past few months has been changing its procedures to make it more student-friendly.
Recently, after the inspection, the RTU had found seven colleges to be deficient for the renewal of their affiliation and kept their affiliation pending.
