PES University, located in Bangalore, India is one of the country’s leading teaching and research universities. The University is committed to providing “education for the real world” that inspires students to realize their potential. Our students graduate with the ability to adapt to an intellectually and technologically changing environment. Over the years, we have accomplished this with the participative efforts of the management, staff, students and parents.
We realize that our students represent the future of our society and we take our responsibility seriously. We ensure that the rock-solid foundation we help them build here – both, in terms of skills and values – will stand them in good stead no matter which career they choose
Our faculty is our most precious resource and one of the three pillars on which PES rests (the other two are students and infrastructure). Our faculty members develop and deliver the educational programs that bring excellent students to PES in the first place.
All our campuses incorporate infrastructure that matches the best in the country – ensuring that students have everything they need for a stimulating campus life. The classrooms are planned to maximize light and space and students have access to the latest computing and research facilities.
Course content and grading
All the courses which have been conferred autonomous status have their departments set their own course content and grading system. The college follows the credit-based system of performance evaluation, with proportional weighting of courses based on their importance. The total marks (usually out of 100) form the basis of grades, with a grade value (out of 10) assigned to a range of marks. For each semester, the students are graded by taking a weighted average of all the subject grades with their respective credit points. Each semester’s evaluation is done independently with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) reflecting the overall performance across semesters. Till June 2012, the grading system being followed was relative grading, but the college switched to an absolute grading system after consultations with the university
