                                                ME- 805 Major Project

Objectives of the course Minor/Major Project are:

 To provide students with a comprehensive experience for applying the knowledge gained
so far by studying various courses.

 To develop an inquiring aptitude and build confidence among students by working on
solutions of small industrial problems.

 To give students an opportunity to do some thing creative and to assimilate real life work
situation in institution.

 To adapt students for latest development and to handle independently new situations.

 To develop good expressions power and presentation abilities in students.
The focus of the Major Project is on preparing a working system or some design or
understanding of a complex system using system analysis tools and submit it the same in the
form of a write up i.e. detail project report. The student should select some real life problems for
their project and maintain proper documentation of different stages of project such as need
analysis market analysis, concept evaluation, requirement specification, objectives, work plan,
analysis, design, implementation and test plan. Each student is required to prepare a project
report and present the same at the final examination with a demonstration of the working system
(if any)

Working schedule The faculty and student should work according to following schedule:
Each student undertakes substantial and individual project in an approved area of the subject and
supervised by a member of staff.The student must submit outline and action plan for the project
execution (time schedule) and the same be approved by the concerned faculty.
