Ready to crack the problems

Comfortably Placed

Students have also been working hard to get their notes ready, complete assignments and submit their projects. Though the same mood prevails on the campus of BNM Institute of Technology, the students are at ease and preparing for the exam in an organised manner.

Out of the eight units, almost all the branches have completed around six to seven chapters already and are left with only a small portion. As prescribed by the VTU, the college conducts three internal tests along with solving old question papers, giving comprehensive notes and conducting practice tests to aid the students in cracking the exams.

“The best part of our college is the entire syllabus is covered on time without leaving out any chapter. It helps us a lot while preparing for the exams. So, there is no need to take external coaching. The library has all the required books and study materials for reference. We get around 15-20 days of study vacation before the theory exams which is enough for me. Another advantage is a lot of professors and lecturers in our college are rank holders in their respective subjects, so they are the best people to help us in facing the exam,” says Deepak Srivatsa, a fifth semester Electrical Engineering student.

Deepak prefers to get a hands-on experience of his subject rather than just reading books. “I have done a few projects relating to my subject. On the basis of that, I try to understand my syllabus. I refer textbooks and make important notes. And I also take the help of my seniors in compiling my study notes,” he adds.

N Shesha Prasad, an assistant professor with the Electronics and Communications Department, says that he tries his best to make learning an enjoyable exercise so that students can listen to the lectures with rapt attention.

“On the first day of my class itself, I tell my students that their effort and commitment can make EC ‘easy’. Since its inception, the college has been securing top ranks every year at the university level. As we cover the entire syllabus, our students can prepare well. During their study vacations, we suggest that they contact us through e-mails rather than coming to college so that they can utilise their time to study. I advice my student to eat, sleep and play well so that they are able to study well,” he says.

Neha N K, a sixth semester student, says that she finds no difficulty in preparing for the exams thanks to the friendly faculty and helpful seniors. “At times, I prefer combined study as it helps in clearing our doubts instantly. After completing the portions, the lecturers take revision classes. But I feel the study vacation could be longer.”
Mathematics is one of the most important subjects in engineering which many students consider difficult.

“Interestingly, in our college, we give more prizes to students who score cent per cent result in mathematics than in any other subject. All the branches in engineering have mathematics as one of the subjects till the fifth semester. We also have many lateral students, who have joined the third semester directly after their diploma courses. We take extra care of such students who sometimes need a little more effort to get acquainted with the mathematical equations at the engineering level,” says Professor Shrinivasa G from the Department of Mathematics.
