(Out of 150 marks, 50 marks are to be given for Problem Definition. The college, through internal evaluation, will assess the Industry Defined problems, submitted by students during the first week of the seventh semester. The remaining 100 marks are for the practical exam, to be conducted by the University.)

Note:

  • The format for problem definition may be specified by dept. /college. The common form for the problem definition can be downloaded from GTU website. (Click here)
  • In the 8th Semester out of 400 marks 300 marks are for the practical exam by the University and 100 marks are for Internal Practical exam.

3.  Each final year Project will be a Major Project. It will be divided into two Semesters of work.

Procedure

  1. Each defined project needs to be from Industry/Research organization/Govt.organization/socio-technical issues.
  2. Project identification should be based on “Shodh-Yatra” carried out by the students after completion of B.E Semester 6th Examination but before starting of the 7thSemester.
  3. Problem definition for the project needs to be submitted by every student in the first week of the 7th Semester to his/her college.
  4. Each definition will be evaluated in the beginning of the 7th semester itself by the College.
  5. Every College should send all the Problem Definitions in the specified format to GTU before 15th August, 2011.

Facilitation:

You may contact your Udisha Club Co-ordinator/Faculty /Department/Principal or Chairman of your Sankul for arranging “Shodh-Yatra” to the industries.

Guidelines for the students

FAQ for Final Year Project

  • The final year project is divided into two semesters(7th & 8th) which should be based upon a real-life problem of an industry1.
  • If a faculty member, using his experience, gives a problem to a student for his/ her final year project, the student can use the problem to write the IDP. However the IDPproposal, will have to be submitted in the required format.
  • The students will scout for the Industry Defined Project(IDP) before commencement of the first semester of the final academic year. Within two weeks of commencement of academic session, the student will take review inputs from the faculty member, who is to be his Guide for the project. He will then submit a report on the problem to the HOD. The IDP is mandatory for all branches.
  • The final year project will be designed to develop a better product or a better process.
  • The number of students per group for a project has to be decided by the colleges.
  • Any student can go to any industry in or outside his Sankul. (25 GTU InnovationSankuls have been established across the State).
  • The students can take inter-disciplinary projects during the final year after consultation with the corresponding Guide in respective colleges.
  • The pre-final year students may seek the help of Udisha Club Patrons / Co-ordinatorsfor assignment to an appropriate industry.
  • The pre-final year students have to contact the corresponding Udisha Club Members and Departmental Coordinators of their college for any necessary assistance for scouting IDP. The Principals of the colleges are required to coordinate with SankulCo-Chairman(Academic) for any assistance. The Sankul Co-Chairmen of eachSankul may have established linked with the industry clusters in the region.
  • The students can choose an industry not mentioned in the list provided for reference by GTU Innovation Council .
  • The students have to mention the name of the industry / source of the industry defined project while submitting the project definition immediately after commencement of the academic session during the first semester of the Final Year. (In some cases, the industry may jointly mentor and evaluate the progress of the project during the academic year).
  • GTU Innovation Council will award for the best 3000 (1000 each in degree Engineering, Dip Engg and Masters) problems/project definitions.
  • Those students who have already undergone the training or industrial visit can define a project definition from the respective industries, based on the training or industrial visit.

The detailed format for industry defined project scouting is posted at the GTU website. A Department may modify the format for all its students. The students will have to submit the problem / project definition to the concerned college in soft copy. The problem definition should have content as per the given guidelines including details of previous attempt to solve such problems / projects and the proposed ways to solve the problem / process by the concerned student or the team of students in particular college while developing it in his/her final year.

Electrical Engineering

7th Semester = 4 credit

8th Semester = 8 credit

The project consists of two parts. The stage-I and stage-II. The student is supposed to carry out stage-I in 7th semester and stage-II in 8th semester. The stage-I has two parts. The first part is pre-project and the other part electrical product survey. The electrical product survey is to be carried out only in 7th semester.

PART-I (Pre-project) (1 hour per week)

This is the main project of students. This part of the project is to be continued in 7th and 8th semester. In the 7th semester, the preliminary work of the project is to be carried out. Group of students will work for the project assigned or selected by the students, under the guidance of some faculty member.

PART-II (Electrical Product Survey) (1 hour per week)
(Only in 7th Semester)

AIM: To make students understand and have exposure to various electrical items/goods/materials which are available in the market. Students should acquire the knowledge of available standard ratings of the materials/goods/items etc as the case may be.

At department level the group of 4-5 students will survey the market by personal visit to vendors, dealers, manufactures etc. as the case may be. Preferably the same group members will work for both parts of project. So that it is easier at the time of evaluation by external examiners. Students are expected to do survey of any one category of items/materials out of the following suggested but not limited to list of categories of electrical items/goods/materials.

  • Types of fuses
  • Insulating materials and insulators
  • Cables
  • Switches (all types of switches, changeover switch)
  • Switchgears (ELCB, MCB, MCCB, ACB etc)
  • Rotating machines for industrial purpose
  • Electrical home appliances and rotating machines for residential purpose
  • Batteries (all types)
  • Transformers
  • Semi-conductor devices
  • Luminaries and light sources
  • Electrical components like resistors, inductors and capacitors
  • Capacitors (DC and AC capacitors, capacitors for power factor corrections, capacitors for induction furnaces etc)
  • Electrical connectors
  • Grounding grid elements like grounding rod, grounding pipe, etc
  • Instruments sensors and transducers
  • Electrical meters
  • Electrical machines accessories

The group of students so formed is supposed to study/survey the total range of the electrical items/goods/material assigned to them. And prepare a report for the same. Students can take help of internet if required but it is discouraged that the complete report is prepared from the various resource material available on the internet.

At the department level, co-ordination of all groups should be done. The group/groups of students can select the category of electrical material/goods of their own choice.

The report of electrical product survey must include:

  • Catalogues
  • Pictures of the concerned items
  • Working principle if applicable
  • Some of the basic information viz. prices, specifications etc.

Finally, a presentation should be given by the concerned group of students in front of the faculty members of the department. Duration of the presentation should be half-hour per group. The report electrical product survey and pre- project should be merged to prepare a comprehensive report.
