INTRODUCTION The academic philosophy of Amity University revolves around student centric learning. OBJECTIVES OF NON TEACHING CREDIT COURSE: There are certain phases of every student’s professional development that cannot be effectively taught in the academic environment. which takes into consideration their varied learning needs and significantly accelerates their retention of both knowledge and skills. creative and through independent study The courses are conducted either at institution. The internship programme can best be described as an attempt to institutionalize efforts to bridge the gap between the professional world and the academic institutions. Following are attributes of Non-Teaching Credit Courses (NTCCs): NTCCs are part of Programme Structure and are compulsory have credit units assigned to them not conducted as regular class lecture. It inspires and gives the chance to the student to operate. other research labs or universities in India and abroad. Entire effort in NTCCs is in terms of extending the program of education and evaluation beyond the classroom/laboratory of a university or institution. lab practical or tutorial are self exploratory / application oriented /field work oriented in nature are done under the supervision/guidance of faculty guide and/or external guide depending upon the place of course being undertaken conducted during the summer break or during the semester allows students to pursue their area of interest to greater depth help students to relate theory to actual practice in the industry help students to be innovative. on-the-job experience working with successful professionals and experts in the field. manage and monitor his/her own learning process under the supervision and the guidance of a faculty supervisor.

Field Work: Fieldwork provides an opportunity to students to integrate theory and practice from courses to an organizational context. a concept. field experience.The objectives of the NTCCs are To provide an opportunity to students to demonstrate the ability to devise. practical experience. concepts in given industry /practical / field scenario TYPES OF NON TEACHING CREDIT COURSES Various types of NTCCs include Term Paper: A 'term paper' is a research paper written by students during a specified semester or summer break. a topic. Sense of responsibility Developing professional Skills Application of theory. The learning process in the NTCC seeks out and focuses attention on many latent attributes. These experiential learning attributes through NTCC include: – – – – – – – – 3. applying the theoretical knowledge to a real life situation. research. Research and its importance in experiential learning through NTCC. Intellectual ability. It aims at widening the student's perspective by providing an exposure to real life organisational and environmental situations. Seminar: A Seminar is an important component of learning in a programme where the student learns to prepare a report and presentation on a particular topic. participate.

Research can generally be classified by Purpose or by Method or by Source of Data. clear and concise written argument. The objective of this training is to provide the students with sufficient skills to meet the practical requirements of the course in-house (within Department/Institution/Faculty) and to develop design and experimental skills. Research by Method: – deductive research and – inductive research. sustained and independent exercise in research or scholarship produced by an individual student involving substantial data collection in the field and/or the laboratory with the work presented as a written report. The internship also provides invaluable knowledge and networking experience to the students. Research: Research is an integral part of any NTCC. Dissertation provides an opportunity to the students to demonstrate the ability to devise. or simply enhance their skills in a familiar field. However. In-house Practical Training: In-house Practical training is mainly for technical programme. to show the application of skills of data collection. Research by source of Data: – Primary research – Secondary research . Ideally the duration of the Industry internship is six to eight weeks. Research by purpose: – Basic Research – Applied Research. in some cases this period could be extended. Dissertation: A substantial. critical analysis and concept synthesis necessary for formation of defensible conclusions. It also provides a platform to demonstrate ability to draw appropriate conclusions argued from the evidence presented and also a forum to demonstrate the skills of structuring and present a balanced informed. but not more than 18 weeks.prospective employer.
