We will be dealing with the NBA committee during this semester. We must thoroughly comprehend the NBA ideology and conduct our day to day tasks properly. Students should be familiar with OBE philosophy and the terminologies like COs and POs-PSOs. I urge everyone to give their best in the current and upcoming semesters in order to promote the NBA culture in the department and the institute. Wish you all the Best!!!
Thank you…
