The curriculum and syllabus of B.Sc. Food Processing Technology is also developed in consultation with the Department of Commerce and Industries, Govt. of Manipur and Association of Food Scientists and Technologist, India (Manipur Chapter). Similarly, the curriculum of B.C.A. is developed in consultation with DOEACC Centre, Imphal, Department of Computer Science of Manipur University and M/S, Computer Gallery, a partner of IBM taking reference the syllabi of other Universities.

Finally, the curricula so developed are submitted to the Manipur University for rectification and approval. And thus, the curriculum of the academic programmes taken up by the college are able to meet the need of the society and have relevance to the regional, national and global trends and developmental needs.

  • High drop-out rate owing to a rising trend of parallel admissions to other courses (in other institutions as well) by students in search of easy options; more vigorous student counseling pre-and post-admission needs to be done to tackle this issue.


Title of the practice: Use of ICT Tools to enhance quality teaching and Learning

Objective of the practice:

  • To enhance the teaching-learning experience with proper usage of ICT tools.
  • To train teachers on online teaching so that they are able to improvise and adapt to the new normal of teaching-learning.
  • To engage students effectively using ICT tools in the classrooms as well as in virtual classrooms

The Context:

In current times, traditional teaching methods have become redundant. Teachers need to train and acquire new skill sets as regards using computer-assisted ICT tools and other audio-visual teaching aids so that the quality of their teaching is enhanced. Further, teachers and students alike are able to keep pace with the recent developments in their respective subjects.

The Practice:

  • Computer-assisted teaching-learning process by using SMART Board, LCD Projector, Laptop Computers, Audio-Visual Aids, Internets etc.
  • Access to e-resources (e-books and e-journals) under the N-List of NMEICT by both the teachers and students. All the staff and students have their own e-mail ID to access e-resources (e-books and e-journals) available under the N-List of NMEICT.
  • Distribution of Hard Copies and Soft Copies of Study Materials.
  • Tutorial and Remedial classes for slow learners, SC/ST/OBC/Minority students and additional teaching-learning inputs for advanced learners.
  • All the Departments are provided with Desktop Computers and Laptop Computers.
  • All the classrooms and laboratories are provided with online UPS for power back up.
  • The campus has networking with Local Area Network and 1:1 dedicated Connectivity from Bharti Airtel and BroadBand Connection from BSNL.
  • Audio-Visual Equipment are also made available.
  • Multi-media Language Laboratory is made available for learning Spoken and Communicative English
  • The library and computer center are equipped with the latest configuration of Computers and Internet Connectivity.
  • Hands-on training of teachers on how to use the ICT tools and incorporate them in classroom teaching conducted within the college.

The above mechanisms are significant practices in the teaching-learning and evaluation process of the college.

Evidence of Success:

  • Student’s Classroom experience is improved and more interest is generated in their subject of study.
  • Completion of syllabi on time since illustrations are better explained using smartboards and audio-visual aids than the old chalk and blackboard method; thus lectures could be completed in lesser time.

  • • Teachers are able to upgrade their teaching methodologies through in-house hands-on training programmes and are thus able to expand their teaching repertoire.

Problems Encountered and Resources Required:

  • Routine Maintenance of the ICT tools in the classrooms is found wanting leading to frustration to teachers; a full-time maintenance personnel needs to be recruited.
  • Some teachers prefer the old-school teaching methods and find it technically difficult to incorporate ICT tools to update their teaching methodologies; more teacher training in this regard is required
