Major Technical Projects (MTP)

About the SCEE major technical project

The major technical project (MTP) is a year-long project taken by B.Tech. students in their fourth year. The MTP is a capstone task which builds upon the previous three years of study taken by a B.Tech. student. It provides an opportunity to students

  • to apply the knowledge gained during coursework studies,
  • to learn and apply organizational and collaborative skills essential for successfully carrying out project goals
  • to learn about advanced concepts and cutting-edge technologies and
  • to contribute in terms of theoretical work, analysis or system development before they embark upon their professional careers.

The MTP can be taken by an individual student or by a team of students. Every MTP has faculty mentors who supervise progress throughout the duration of the project.


MTP evaluation

The overall evaluation scheme is divided into four stages with two stages in each semester, a mid-semester evaluation and an end-semester evaluation.
