Academic Freedom

The Autonomous Status accords an institution with the freedom to frame the syllabus and customize it as per the needs of the Industry. Students are taught the latest and relevant technologies to make them competent in the market. Experts from various industries and experienced academicians from reputed institutes are consulted in the process of framing the syllabus. Dedicated efforts are made to ensure that the syllabus framed is “Employment Centric” and potentially lucrative.

Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS)

New Horizon College of Engineering follows the ‘Choice Based Credit System’. CBCS has numerous advantages over the conventional system. Rather than evaluating student-performance using marks and percentages, which many a time can be very inconsistent and unfair, CBCS uses Grades and Grade Point Averages(GPA) to evaluate student-performance. Using Grades and GPAs instead of marks and percentages provides a more holistic metric to measure student-performance.

Better Subject Choice and Electives

The earmarking feature of CBCS is that students in addition to studying the core subjects from their branch can also choose from a wide range of elective subjects from other branches as well. i.e students from non circuit branches (Mechanical, Automobile, Biotechnology and Civil) can opt for electives offered by the circuit branches (Computer Science, Information Science, Electronics & Communication and Electrical & Electronics) and vice versa. This way the CBCS seamlessly incorporates and encourages an interdisciplinary approach towards higher education which is adopted by top Universities across the world.

Employability Becomes Easier

In today’s competitive marketplace, there is a huge demand for proficient technical and management professionals. Practical training and a curriculum meticulously framed to meet the requirements of the job market are imparted to the students to make them readily employable. The overall syllabus is framed in such a way that students get to study more than 2 labs per semester, which in turn helps them gain more practical knowledge. In addition to this, hands-on project which is an important part of the curriculum plays a vital role in making students ‘employment ready’.


Equal weightage is accorded to both internal and final exams. Both the Internal and the final exams are conducted by the college.

Make-up Examination

Students who fail to attend the final examination due to justifiable reasons, have a provision to take ‘The Make-Up Examination’ immediately after the semester results are declared. This feature of autonomy is extremely beneficial to students since they can clear their back-logs immediately rather than carry it forward to the next year.

Fast Track Semester & Examination

This facility is provided to assist slow-learners and students who have failed in one or more subjects to help them avoid losing a whole academic year. Fast Track classes are conducted and Examination is held at the end of each academic year.


Students are provided with multiple opportunities to intern at various Industries and MNC R&D Laboratories, during their vacation time to groom them for the Industry.


Students graduating from New Horizon College of Engineering (Autonomous) are awarded ‘degree’ from Visvesvaraya Technological University(VTU), Karnataka.
