About

Students Code of Discipline

The advisory system in the College is coordinated by the Chief Advisor. Immediately on admission, each student will be assigned to a faculty member called Senior advisor for that batch. The senior advisor will maintain a student file for the personal and academic details of the student. This faculty member would act as a mentor and provide suitable guidance to the students during the course of study. There will be a team of advisors to help the senior advisor to carry out his responsibilities.

The parents can have regular interaction with the senior advisor to obtain information regarding progress of their wards. The advisors would have updated information regarding academic progress of the student at any time. The results of examinations, outstanding performance records, misbehavior, disciplinary action etc. will be recorded in the student’s file.

During every semester, the parents would be provided with detailed information regarding progress of their wards and, if needed, parents may be invited to the College to have interactions with the faculty members, HOD and Principal along with their wards. Such discussions would lead to the steps to be taken to support the student to improve his academic performance.

Note: The Academic Advisory Committee may make exception to these policies under extraordinary circumstances. In some cases, students on Final Probation who are not making satisfactory progress at mid-semester, will be asked to leave the College at that time.

The Committee notifies parents or guardians and advisers when a student is placed on any of these academic categories and when probation is continued or changed.

In the modern era, where professional education has reached the doorstep of every individual, it is mandatory that an institution has to develop a Quality Conscious System of Technical Education where excellence, relevance to market needs and participation by all stake holders are prime and major determinants.

ISO 9001:2015 certification has special significance in designing and documentation of procedures for establishing processes and implementing quality systems. This helps to streamline the processes and procedures, which facilitates the strengthening of the system internally. The new ISO 9001:2015 version envisages reduction in the amount of documentation with greater orientation towards continual improvement and customer satisfaction.

In order to get assured quality conformance to good practices and benchmarks of global requirements, Vel Tech Multi Tech Engineering College, has taken a leap forward, by getting ISO 9001:2015 certification for the institution. All the faculty members and staff with the guidance of the Heads of the departments, Principal and Management constantly ensure that we always adhere ourselves to ISO standards.
