Course Files and Lab Manuals

Course Files

Compiling course files is a concept which had been there for many years in professional college. Geethanjali takes the concept of course file to a new level altogether.

Efforts have been made to prepare course files on every subject taught in all branches altogether. This huge stack of information is specially prepared by the respective faculty members with examinations in mind. A wide variety of questions are compiled catering to the comprehension of the weakest student to challenge the mind of the brightest student.

Not only are the efforts of Geethanjali towards compiling the best material but efforts of the same level are put into ensuring that the students access the information. Group ids are created for each class and the class representative receives this information which he/she passes it on to his/her classmates. All of them can access the information with the help of their username & password generated individually per student.

Along with important questions and answers generated unit wise there are nearly 50 multiple choice questions per unit which will aid the student in their online internal examinations. Not just this academic matter but our faculty also includes website addresses resourceful for their subjects, references and all possible lab viva questions.

The course files are updated every year and versions of it are released.

The course files are updated every year and versions of it are released.

  • Lab Manuals

    The laboratory manuals for each lab are generated with utmost care because at Geethanjali we understand the importance of applied knowledge. We realize that labs are real nests for acquiring knowledge and hence stringent measures are followed while designing them and scrutinized by the HODs before they reach the student. Along with the prescribed number of experiments, more number of experiments are added after consulting the industry requirements. The lab manuals help the student prepare their record and also come prepared for their lab sessions.

The College gives utmost importance to improving the quality of the graduate student as this is an important aspect of the mission of the college. To that end, we spend considerable amount of time talking with students about their career and professional goals, concerns, and suggestions for improving their learning experience. Since its inception, the college has been continuously striving its best in working towards enhancing the professional culture to serve the needs of an ever-changing and dynamic learning community in an exemplary manner. The college has a Training & Placement cell (T&P cell) which guides the students on all aspects of career planning, job searching, and post-graduate studies. The objective of the cell, inter alia, are:

  1. To offer career guidance programs and to provide assistance and resources to support students in making real life connections to academic learning.
  2. To enable students to gain the skills, ability and confidence to transit successfully to further studies/work/self-employment or any other activity in which he/she lands deliberately or unwittingly.
  3. To provide services which expose students to infinite possibilities available in their future; to equip them with the tools they need to plan for future endeavors and to provide continued support and encouragement that they need to be successful in career as well as life.
  4. To enable students to evaluate various career options and embark on their career path to meet their interests by showing them how to assess their interests and talents.
  5. To help find answers to the following questions which pester students:
    • What am I going to do when I leave college?
    • Do I meet the entrance requirements of places of higher education?
    • Can I afford to study further?
    • Will I find a job in my chosen field and place?
    • Should I take a gap/break after college?
    • Are some places better to study than others?
    • Is my degree internationally recognized?
    • Will my job earn me the money to live the lifestyle I desire?

Finding answers to these questions is easy if one has a good understanding of himself/herself and his/her choice of careers. It is possible to find a career path for each individual which draws on their strengths and builds on areas requiring improvement.
