Gujarat Technological University (GTU) will implement the evaluation system in 100 – Activity Points that has already been launched in the beginning of the current Academic Year i.e. 2015-16 for earning the GTU’s Engineering Degree. Any B.E. Student of GTU will be honoured the B.E. Degree once s/he earns the Minimum 100 Activity Points during his total academic tenure.

Benefits from the 100-points
Globally, engineering education systems have continuously evolved, in order to address the needs of the industry and the society. Industry needs professionals who can work successfully in teams, who have leadership qualities, who are alive to social and community needs and who can bring innovation and creativity to their work. Hence, in order to prepare its students to match these multifarious requirements, GTU has created the unique mechanism. GTU will be able to reap benefits from these activities at their own pace and comfort. It is expected that by the time GTU’s students reach their Final Year, they would have developed themselves so well both through their studies in the respective technological field and through their active participation in the co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that they would be well-prepared for contributing to building the India and the world of their dreams.
