Teaching Philosophy


I believe that learning takes place in a positive safe environment filled with a lot of laughter.
As a teacher, I prefer a practical approach and often treat my each and every lecture as a thought process with student.
The objective is to grow a zeal for knowledge and a habit of understanding the subject matter. Something which an average GTU student is lagging desperately lagging.

Attendance Policy


As per the rules of Gujarat Technological University and policies of Babaria Institute of Technology, a minimum of 80% attendance is mandatory in Lectures and Labs.

In event of sickness, you should let me know on/before the day of class and make arrangements to complete any missed work.I also make allowances for family issues / emergencies where your presence is needed.
If you are a student athlete or some integral part of a sports event, your absence will also be considered accordingly.

Please do not ... ...
- Sleep in class;- Do homework in class (unless instructed to do so!!)- Be disrespectful!

Grading Policy


Your best work will always come from development of greater understanding and intelligent ideas presented in an engaging manner.Your production work will be evaluated based on these criteria:
  • Concept, Creativity, and Design – 40%
  • Understanding and Execution of the project – 25%
  • Craftsmanship / Usability / Effort – 35%
