The fundamental objective of the course is to provide students an opportunity to study an area of special interest which is greater in depth than the general curriculum and conduct a design project in that particular field. This aim is going to be fulfilled in two phases. The first phase involves the preparation of a “Project Proposal”. The second phase, however, requires submitting regular “Progress Reports” at least once a month. The reports are going to be evaluated on the basis of presentations that will be done in the class time along with discussions.
