Highlights

  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor. 

    These mentors offer guidance, support, and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query. 

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors.

  • Innovation Centre
