Evaluation Scheme:

Chapter Hours Mark Distribution
1,2 4 8
3,4 5 8
5 6 10
6 4 8
7 6 10
8 4 8
9 4 8
10 4 8
11 8 12
Total 45 80

There may be minor deviation in marks distribution.


Laboratory – Minimum 6 sets of computer programs in C (from Unit 4 to Unit 10) and

2 sets in FORTRAN (from unit 11) should be done individually. (30 marks out of 50 marks) –

Student (maximum 4 persons in a group) should submit mini project at the end of course.

(20 marks out of 50 marks)
