Now, engineering examination will be held in Hindi medium also. The decision comes in the wake of the CM’s announcement made in the World Hindi Conference last month to promote Hindi in Madhya Pradesh.

Higher and technical education minister Umashankar Gupta said students could be able to write the papers either in English or Hindi as per their choice. The announcement was made by Gupta in a meeting of officers of private universities on Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) held at Rajeev Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidhyalaya (RGPV) on Wednesday. He said that government and private universities should share their best practices.

He also launched e-Thesis/ Dessertation Submission System. Gupta said old research papers should also be uploaded on website. Vice chancellor Piyush Trivedi informed that through CBCS, students will be free to choose courses as per their talent and academic capacities. It provides mobility to students to continue their studies in any institution throughout the world by transferring their credits.

The system will be semester-based but students will need only total 180 credits for BE degree. These 180 credits will be divided into several parts due to which students will have opportunity to study various subjects. A student will have to take minimum 16 credits in each subject.

For studying next year, he/ she should earn minimum 22 credits in previous year. In this way, 90 credits out of 180 would be for basic elective course and remaining 90 credits for study of basic science, engineering science and other faculties.

In this system, students must attend classes regularly. Credits will be counted on the basis of students’ attendance and constant evaluation. The CBCS system will have five main subjects including basic science core.
