This includes project based courses like Python, CAD with rapid prototyping, Making with Electronics and case study based courses like Control Engineering and Entrepreneurship.
At CMRU, a unique component of student assessment criteria is the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). The CCE measures students’ abilities through their contribution to various activities, team projects and case studies. These modules are structured in ways that make peer learning an integral part of every course. Each student is an active participant in the learning process and the role of a professor is that of a facilitator. Instruction is designed to engage students in learning experiences that enable them to not only learn concepts but also to develop greater insights towards practical application.
