UGC Approval

BITS Pilani is an Institution of Eminence under UGC (Institution of Eminence Deemed to be Universities) Regulations, 2017. The Work Integrated Learning Programmes (WILP) of BITS Pilani constitutes a unique set of educational offerings for working professionals. WILP are an extension of programmes offered at the BITS Pilani Campuses and are comparable to our regular programmes both in terms of unit/credit requirements as well as academic rigour. In addition, it capitalises and further builds on practical experience of students through high degree of integration, which results not only in upgradation of knowledge, but also in up skilling, and productivity increase. The programme may lead to award of degree, diploma, and certificate in science, technology/engineering, management, and humanities and social sciences. On the recommendation of the Empowered Expert Committee, UGC in its 548th Meeting held on 09.09.20 has approved the continued offering of BITS Pilani’s Work Integrated Learning programmes.

Learning Methodology

CLASSROOM SESSIONS

  • Classroom sessions in this programme will be conducted through live online sessions which can be accessed by the learners from any location using a computer and a high-speed internet connection.

  • Classes will be conducted by BITS Pilani faculty over weekends. A typical weekend classroom session per subject is of 1.5-2 hours duration. Since students typically pursue 4 courses in a semester, they will be expected to attend approximately 4 classroom sessions over a weekend.

  • These classroom sessions will be typically scheduled over 16 weekends per semester.

  • The schedule of the classroom sessions, will be announced at the beginning of each semester.

DIGITAL LEARNING

Learners can access engaging learning material at their own pace which lecture videos, student notes, curated content etc. for select courses, through a learning management platform that is engaging and mobile-friendly.

PROJECT WORK

During the final semester participants carryout a semester-long intensive project work applying the various concepts learnt throughout the program guided by the organisation mentor and supervisor. Participants are provided access to virtual labs where applicable, and faculty expertise to support the project work.

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING & LABS

The programme emphasises on Experiential Learning that allows learners to apply concepts learnt in classroom in simulated and real work situations. This is achieved through Simulations, Online Labs, Case Studies, Group Discussions, and Assignments, etc.

The remote labs provide you with remote access to hardware and software tools that are used for designing and testing embedded systems on various platforms such as MultiCore STM32, Raspberry Pi, Ardunio, Xilinix FPGA

Examinations & CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT

The learners’ performance is assessed continuously throughout the semester using various tools such as quiz, assignments, mid-semester and comprehensive exams. The assessment results are shared with the learners to improve their performance.

Each course will entail a minimum of 1 Assignment/ Quiz, a Mid-semester exam and a final Comprehensive exam. Your semester calendar will clearly indicate the dates of the Mid-semester and Comprehensive exam. Typically, a Mid-semester or Comprehensive examination for a course is for 2-3 hours duration. The examinations are typically conducted over a weekend, i.e. Saturday and Sunday.
