Project Guidelines for Post Graduate Programs and Certificate courses 1. Understanding the significance of a Project Report Many learners underestimate the significance of a project report and make a mistake of thinking that excellent marks can be scored by simply producing a good lay-out. This is fundamentally not the case as many projects are graded well below their potential because of an indifferent or poor write-up. In order to acquire the right balance, a learner should consider the aim behind making a good project. It provides the opportunity for a learner to demonstrate independence and originality, to plan and organize the project work, and to put into practice some of the techniques a learner has been taught throughout the program. 2. Meaning of a Project The word project actually means something that comes before anything else is done. A project can be defined as a temporary endeavour undertaken to achieve a particular aim or it is a study of factual information for comprehending and applying the various concepts of the course into practice. In simple words, a project can be understood as mentioned under: It is a practice of verification or demonstration of concepts or hypotheses or processes learnt. It is also a technique of self-learning, learning by doing. It has a practical value. The purpose of project is not to generalize but to study the situation with a practical orientation. 3. Application of Research Methodology to Project Work SCDL allows learners to take up any topic of their interest and choice for project work. However, learners should bear in mind that project topic should be relevant in their area of specialization. For example, the learners of PGDBA (Marketing) should carry out their project work only in the functional areas of Marketing or PGDIT learners should select topics from their area of choice. Although an illustrative list of the topics is being given at the end in order to give an idea about project topics or titles of the project, learners are nevertheless advised not to restrict themselves only to the topics specified. SCDL gives liberty to choose any topic relevant to a learner’s specialization.
