Curriculum Design and Development
Since the inception of the JNTUK, the University has been in the forefront for the Curricula development and implementation as per the local, national, regional and global demand, aspirations of the stake holders and societal needs which are reviewed periodically for their continued suitability and effectiveness. The University is moving forward with mission of promoting excellence, access, inclusion and relevance in quality education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Management, namely
JNTUK has designed the Revised Regulation Curriculum2020 (R20) In tune with the National Education Policy (NEP-2020) to equip the students of constituent and affiliated engineering colleges of University with the required skills and make them industry ready. The students are also given the option of choosing between skill courses 3 offered by the respective college and a certificate course offered by industry, a professional body, APSSDC or any other accredited body. Another major change brought in the curriculum is the introduction of B.Tech. with Honours or a B. Tech with a Minor. Open Elective subjects are being offered to students of all branches.
To suit to the local needs, the university is offering B.Tech in petrochemical and petroleum engineering and M. Tech in Petroleum Engineering and Pipeline Engineering.
To suit to the national needs, the university has introduced the programme of B. Tech in Food Engineering in the year 2020 and also M. Tech in Food Processing Technology since 2010-11 which are being run by the School of Food Technology.
The University has also established Nano Technology, Avionics and need based interdisciplinary programmes to suit to the global needs. The local industrial needs are taken into account from the feedback of various stakeholders of the University and industry relevant courses are included in the curriculum.
Curriculum Enrichment is attained by designing core courses to improve employability through skill- oriented courses, communication skills and IT and logical reasoning skills. skill-oriented courses will be offered and students must register and pass the courses successfully. An exclusive Directorate named Empowerment of Women & Grievances in the university to promote gender sensitivity in the University and conduct diverse programmes to educate, sensitize female members, and produce harmonious atmosphere on the campus. The university offers value based education through Courses like Ethics, Universal Human Values, Environmental Sciences, Indian Constitution, Essence of Indian Traditional Knowledge etc., by including them in curriculum as mandatory courses
The University conducts workshops regularly on IPR and Research Methodology. While conducting Board of Studies meeting, Feedback from students, faculty, alumni and experts from industry and Higher Learning institutes is taken in to consideration which will improve the quality of curriculum.
