B.Tech (R07) Regulations 1st Year Subjects – Exemption from Compulsory Subjects for award of degree
As per B.Tech. (R07) regulations, one of the academic requirements to award degree is that the student should secure 216 credits (out of 224 credits registered) with the compulsory subjects as listed below;
1. All the first year subjects
2. All the practical subjects
3. Industry oriented mini-project
5. Project work
Many representations from the students of R07 regulations are received, requesting the University not to consider the first year subjects as compulsory, in the calculation of 216 credits, required for the award of Degree. Also they represented that in spite of their hard work and effort made to pass the first year subjects, they are unable to pass one or two subjects which are compulsory subjects to become eligible for the award of degree. In addition some of the students could not get 50% of marks in Seminar to pass that course which is evaluated internally. As it is internal evaluation a Supplementary examination cannot be conducted and as the candidate has got the attendance in that semester he/she cannot register for a single subject. Several students were not able to get the degree awarded for want of this simple lapse. Hence the students have represented to make this seminar credits also to consider for waiver with total 8 credits.
Considering the Directors’ meeting minutes, the Hon’ble Vice Chancellor is pleased to exempt all the first year subjects and seminar from the compulsory subjects.
The clause No. 1 of R07 regulations is hereby amended as follows:
A Student will be declared eligible for the award of the B.Tech. Degree if he/ she fulfills the following academic regulations.

1. All the practical subjects
2. Industry oriented mini- Project
