Campus Wide Quality Improvement Program
The Campus Wide Quality Improvement Program (CWQIP), is about optimizing teaching and learning methods across campus. CWQIP works on three distinct fronts. First, it sets up systems for accountability and continuous improvement in the classroom. Next, it creates an environment where each student is constantly motivated to excel and reach higher. Finally, it provides proactive career management facilities that help students find internships and permanent jobs through a variety of channels.
All published course materials is given to students before the start of the term. This ensures that they are aware of course coverage and requirements in advance. We find this helps them to plan their research activities and study schedules better and maximizes the benefit from their curriculum.
We periodically provide detailed student progress reports that help students and their families monitor academic performance throughout the year. These reports can also be accessed online on our website by parents/guardians in any part of the world. Students with learning difficulties are supported by the Weak Students Development Program (WSDP).
We believe that teachers must be evaluated by the students they teach. This ensures that there is no discontinuity between the delivery of education and students needs. Each teacher is evaluated on a wide range of parameters that range from expertise in their subject to contribution to campus life.
Students who are ranked amongst the first ten in the university are given these prestigious awards at an annual ceremony. The award comprises a citation, a gold medal and a cash award. This encourages the competitive spirit and rewards students who constantly strive to do better.
Exceptional students are awarded student assistantships. This provides them with the opportunity to work closely with their teachers, assisting them with their research and coaching students who need extra help. This experience on the ‘other side’ always helps students perform better themselves.
Students who get ‘distinctions’ (more than 70%) in any year, are given a citation and a book coupon. This small but significant gesture of recognition goes a long way towards boosting student morale.
Industry Institution Interaction
We are firmly focused on helping our students find rewarding careers. Our active placement department stays in constant touch with leading firms, organizes campus interviews and coordinates placements. Today, PES alumni can be found at premier companies across the world.
Students on campus are given the opportunities to hone what they have learnt with ‘hands-on’ internship programs at leading organizations. These include Coca Cola, Ranbaxy, IBM, Oracle, Xerox, HSBC, HDFC and Hewlett Packard amongst others.
Gaps in curriculum in each semester/ year are identified and bridged through short-term courses, industrial visits, seminars, workshops and conferences. Going beyond the classroom, these programs provide students with a “university plus” experience.
