GUIDELINES
PRACTICAL TRAINING GUIDELINES
1. INTRODUCTION
The practical training program can best be described as an attempt to institutionalize efforts to bridge the gap
between the professional world and academic institutions. Entire effort in practical training is in terms of
extending the program of education and evaluation beyond the classrooms/laboratory’s/field of the University
or Institution.

The Practical Training, of 2 credit units, is of 3-4 weeks duration and is implemented during the summer
break after the second year of the 4 year B.Tech programme.

The Practical Training is exposure oriented and aims at experiential learning outside classroom through self
exploration, practical experience, Industry, field experience, live experience, research, design projects etc. The
educational process in the internship course seeks out and focuses attention on many latent attributes, which do
not surface in the normal classroom situations. These Latent attributes includes intellectual ability, professional
judgment and decision-making ability, inter-disciplinary approach, skills for data handling, ability in written
and oral presentation, sense of responsibility etc.

Most of the students will be undertaking the practical training using Labs/Library of the AUUP coupled with
industry visits. How-ever few students may get opportunity to work in the Government labs/industry, which
will be an excellent opportunity, and should not be missed by students. Students must discuss the opportunity
with faculty guide for formulating the topic/ problems which student can undertake. Due approval of HOI is
mandatory before proceeding for the Practical Training in the industry.

In order to achieve these objectives, a set of guidelines are formulated for conducting practical training program
and assessing the students’ performance. These guidelines are prepared within the broad frame work of
academic regulations applicable at AUUP.

2. COURSE OBJECTIVES
• To provide students with a comprehensive experience for applying the knowledge gained so far by studying
various courses.
• To develop an inquiring aptitude and build confidence among students by working on solutions of small
problems.
• To give students an opportunity to do something creative and to assimilate real life work situation in
institution.
• To adapt students for latest developments and to handle independently new situations.
• To develop good expression power and presentation abilities in students.

3. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

Following are the student learning outcomes from the minor and major projects:
a. Team working and team management.
b. How to develop components & systems in isolation which meets a common goal.
c. Practical application of engineering principles for designing, fabrication and testing of working models.
d. An ability to design a system, model, component or a process to meet desired/industrial/R&D needs.

e. Technique to present balanced, concise written arguments about a technical research.


4. GUIDELINES FOR CONDUCT OF In House Practical Training
The guidelines give a methodical approach to projects to be done under In house training that will ensure
effective supervision and manage student expectations to improve student learning experience. It aims:
• To provide a systematic approach to projects across the university.
• To provide students taking projects with a valuable learning experience.
• To enable students to develop as independent learners
• To promote the dissemination of effective practice.
• To support faculty guides in the supervision, progress monitoring and assessment of projects
• To enable students to follow prescribed guidelines for the course.
The prime responsibility for managing the project lies with the student and the faculty guide. A faculty guide
will be identified for each student.

4.1 ALLOCATION OF FACULTY GUIDE


Each student shall be assigned a faculty guide for the practical training well in advance in a formal manner
depending on the number of students per faculty member, the available specialization among the faculty guides
by HOD / Institution Project Committee.

List of the faculty guides will be available on AMIZONE. The orientation programme will be organized by the
department. The students will finalize the problem title in consultation with their faculty guide assigned by the
HOD. Overall Coordination will be done by the Programme Leader.

Incase a student is undertaking practical training outside in an industry or research lab or other university, the
students will have two guides – a faculty guide from the institution and an external guide from the concerned
organization. In such cases of joint guidance, the main guide will be faculty guide.

The faculty guide from Amity University must closely interact with the external guide and monitor the progress
of the student in practical training at the host institution/ industry/ research lab etc. Faculty guide must also
strengthen the relationship with the host organization of the student for future collaborative research and
placement of the student in that organization.

4.2 BRIEFING SESSION BY FACULTY GUIDE

Briefing Sessions are very important for undertaking the Practical Training. Therefore, it is mandatory for the
students to attend the same whenever institution/faculty guide have scheduled the same: During such sessions
students should expect to:

• discuss ideas and concerns.


• be guided on resources and the development of a topic / area,
• be provided with direction to help them to manage the process,
• to be provided with advice on academic style, format and the scope of NTCC.
• be provided with general feedback,
• be provided with feedback on their NTCC and apply the comments they receive through processes of
reflection and action-planning to other parts of their development work.

4.3 REGISTRATION
For practical training, a student registers for the course “Practical Training” in their respective department.

Students can do the practical training in a group of 4 students same section.


The Registration will take place at the institute just after or during the End-Term practical examinations of the
4th Semester. Programme Leader in Consultation with HOD will announce the venue for registration. Therefore
check on Amizone for announcements.

4.4 APPROVAL OF TOPIC, SYNOPSIS


Student will finalize the broad area /topic, synopsis of his / her practical training in consultation with the faculty
guide. If the student is undertaking the practical training outside Amity, he/she will provide broad area of
practical training course at the time of Registration. However, within ten days after the registration / joining the
organization, whichever is earlier, the student will work on the topic, synopsis of his/her training under the
guidance of external supervisor and faculty guide. The student will submit the synopsis duly approved and
signed by external guide to his faculty guide as per the following format:
• Student Details (Name, Enrollment Number, Programme, Section)
• Faculty Guide
• Topic/Problem
• Objective(s)
• Description
• Proposed Methodology
• Resources Required
• Work schedule (in consultation with faculty guide)
• References

The Synopsis must be submitted by the student duly approved by faculty guide within one week
of the last day of end semester examination to the Programme Leader.

4.5 ATTENDANCE
The students are required to follow the timings given by their respective Department. Student must be present in
all activities (such as gap lectures, quizzes, lectures by experts etc,) announced by faculty guide/HOD. Students
who have planned to do their practical training in the industry, they must workout weekly schedule of
reporting with the concerned faculty guide. Duly approved schedule must be submitted in the office of
HOD.

4.6 GAP LECTURES


If there are specific areas of interest to the students, which can help, in their educational process, gap lectures
for students by the faculty guide covering different areas can be arranged at different time intervals. The faculty
may chalk out (depending on the students’ needs) the detailed program in this regard after identifying the gap
areas. Faculty can also conduct quizzes and group discussions on the basis of these gap lectures.

5. FACULTY GUIDE - STUDENT INTERACTION


The regular periodic interaction of the faculty guide with the students is necessary. This interaction helps in
continuous monitoring and guiding the students in his/her project and assignment work. In this meeting the
summer internship guide will tell the students about their performance and progress in the project and
assignment task undertaken by them.

6 PRACTICAL TRAINING SCHEDULE


The practical training is 3-4 weeks lab/field oriented training course. For clarity and better monitoring a
structured schedule will be followed with an inbuilt flexibility for the faculty members. Following schedule will
be followed:

a. Commencement of Practical training (Registration) : Next Working day after the Last
End Semester Examination
b. Submission of Synopsis : Within one week after the Last End
Semester Examination
c. Periodic Reporting, quizzes, gap lectures etc : Schedule to be announced by
Concerned Faculty Guide/Deptt.
d. Submission of Draft Report to Faculty Guide: : One Week before the end of the
Practical Training
e. Submission of Final report : Last day of the Practical Training
f. Presentation and VIVA : First week of August (Schedule
to be issued by concerned
Department)

• Students who fail to be in regular touch with faculty guide and whose performance
during the practical training is not satisfactory, will not be permitted to appear for final
Presentation / VIVA.

• The students who fail in Practical Training will be required to repeat the year.

7. FORMAT AND GUIDELINES FOR INTERNSHIP REPORT


The Practical Training Report is the research report that the student has to prepare on the topic /problem
chosen by student in consultation with faculty guide. The report layout should include following components in
the report:

Ø Title or Cover Page


The title page should contain Project Title; Student’s Name; Programme; Year and Semester and Name
of the Faculty Guide.

Ø Acknowledgements
Acknowledgement to any advisory or financial assistance received in the course of work may be given.
It is incomplete without student’s signature.

Ø Abstract
A good “Abstract” should be straight to the point; not too descriptive but fully informative, First
paragraph should state what was accomplished with regard to the objectives. The abstract does not
have to be an entire summary of the project, but rather a concise summary of the scope and results of
the project. It should not exceed more than 1000 words.

Ø Table of Contents
Titles and subtitles are to correspond exactly with those in the text.

Ø Introduction
Here a brief introduction to the problem that is central to the project and an outline of the structure of
the rest of the report should be provided. The introduction should aim to catch the imagination of the
reader, so excessive details should be avoided.

Ø Materials and Methods


This section should aim at experimental designs, materials/software used (wherever applicable).
Methodology should be mentioned in details including modifications undertaken, if any. It includes
organization site(s), sample, instruments used with in its validation, procedures followed and
precautions.

Ø Results and Discussion


Present results, discuss and compare these with those from other workers, etc. in writing this section,
emphasis should be laid on what has been performed and achieved in the course of the work, rather than
discuss in detail what is readily available in text books. Avoid abrupt changes in contents from section
to section and maintain a lucid flow throughout the report. An opening and closing paragraph in every
chapter could be included to aid in smooth flow.

Note that in writing the various sections, all figures and tables should be next to the associated text, in
the same orientation as the main text, numbered, and given appropriate titles or captions. All major
equations should also be numbered and unless it is really necessary, do not write in “point” form. This
data interpretation should be congruence with the written objectives and the inferences should be drawn
on data and not on impression. Avoid writing straight forward conclusion rather, it should lead to
generalization of data on the chosen sample.

Ø Conclusion(s) & Recommendations


A conclusion should be the final section in which the outcome of the work is mentioned briefly.
Check that your work answers the following questions:
§ Did the research project meet its aims (check back to introduction for stated aims)?
§ What are the main findings of the research?
§ Are there any recommendations?
§ Do you have any conclusion on the research process itself?

Ø Implications for Future Research


This should bring out further prospects for the study either thrown open by the present work or with the
purpose of making it more comprehensive.

Ø References
References should include papers, books etc. referred to in the body of the report. These should be
written in the alphabetical order of the author’s surname. The titles of journals preferably should not be
abbreviated; if they are, abbreviations must comply with an internationally recognized system.

8. ASSESSMENT AND GRADING

8.1 Introduction
The practical training is a vehicle through which one can effect meaningful innovations in methods of student
learning and evaluation to bring them closer to real-life situations. The concept of continuous evaluation is
followed since the courses seek out and focuses attention on many latent attributes that do not surface in the
normal classroom situations. These are intellectual ability, professional judgment and decision-making ability,
inter-disciplinary approach, skills for data handling, ability in written and oral presentation, sense of
responsibility etc. and are judged by the faculty though various instruments of evaluation, namely, quiz,
seminar, viva, project report, observation of the student’s performance, and project diary.

9. PLAGIARISM
The practical training report must be written in student’s own words. However, if required to cite the words of
others, all the debts (for words, data, arguments and ideas) have to be appropriately acknowledged.

It is mandatory that each project report shall be checked for plagiarism through Turnitin or similar software
before submission. The content which is based on existing published work must come from properly quoted
material and from the references cited section. After checking the accuracy of the citations and references of
such content the plagiarism report should not return similarity index of more than 15% in any circumstance.
However, if the matching text is one continuous block, the index of 15% could still be considered plagiarism.
Any report with higher than this percentage matching must be explained by the student. The details of copy
rights, professional ethics are given in Plagiarism Prevention Policy of the University.

10. SUBMISSION OF FINAL REPORT


The following points must be ensured for producing quality report:
§ The student will start the project report while doing his/her practical training as per the prescribed
guidelines.
§ The students will submit 1st draft of the report to the guide for guidance. Followed by the submission of
second draft of report after making necessary changes as suggested by the guide.
§ The final report shall be submitted after checking plagiarism through Turnitin or any other format
subscribed by University. Copying material should not be more than 10% provided source is
mentioned in the report along with proper acknowledgement and referencing as per plagiarism policy
of the university.
§ Following will be submitted along with final report:
o WPR
