Appendix ‘E’





            Most of the Student Members of the IETE are working engineers/ technicians/science graduates or under graduates.  Thus, due to occupational reasons and other factors these students are deprived of a formal education and therefore have to learn the subjects through self-study only.


Review of Syllabus

2.         IETE periodically reviews the syllabi of DIPIETE and the aim of these reviews is not only to renovate and modernize the contents but also to make them contemporary.  The syllabi for both Electronics & Telecommunications (ET) and Computer Science & Engineering (CS) streams have been reviewed recently.


3.         Keeping the above aspects in view and based on feed backs/suggestions received from the students, this syllabus has been formulated to meet the following criteria:-

·         The Syllabus should cater to the technological advancements.

·         The textbooks should be available and affordable to the students.

·         In the absence of a formal coaching to the students, there should be a reasonable correlation between the topics in a subject and the textbooks.


Salient Features

4.         Some salient features of the syllabus are:-

·         Each subject has a code preceding it (viz DE51 and DC51 are codes for Mathematics-I in ET & CS streams respectively).

·         In order to guide the student and to enable him/her to prepare well for an examination, each subject is divided into 8 units and each unit has the course contents to be covered in 7 or 8 hours.

·         The textbooks have been numbered in Roman Numerical (viz  I, II, III)

·         The chapters and sections are mentioned inside the bracket e.g. I (2.1) would indicates chapter 2 and section 1 of textbook-I.


Scheme of the Examination

5.         For all theory subjects the Question Paper contains

·         10 objective questions for 20 marks covering the complete syllabus

·         8 questions are from each unit and each question carries 16 marks.


6.         Regular feed back from the students, academicians, corporate members and professionals is requested to keep this syllabus updated, so that our students keep abreast of latest technological changes.  Though every effort has been made to identify standard and best textbooks for each subject, we welcome suggestions on availability of better and cheaper textbooks.
