Fluid Mechanics is an inter-disciplinary course covering the basic principles and its applications in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering The students will have new problem-solving approaches like control volume concept and streamline patterns which are nowadays required to solve the real-life complex problems. The visualization of the fluid-flow problems will be demonstrated to enhance student’s interest on the subject.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Prof. Subashisa Dutta, Having more than 15 years experience of teaching in IIT Guwahati for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The Fluid Mechanics course in undergraduate level was instructed five times by the Subject Matter Expert. Bcsides this, he developed a NPTEL web course on Fluid Mechanics for undergraduate students. ln the research and consultancies work of mathematical modeling of different rivers like the Brahmaputra, he has been exposed to real life challenging works. In this course, some of the real life problems will be discussed.
1. Join the course
Learners may pay the applicable fees and enrol to a course on offer in the portal and get access to all of its contents including assignments. Validity of enrolment, which includes access to the videos and other learning material and attempting the assignments, will be mentioned on the course. Learner has to complete the assignments and get the minimum required marks to be eligible for the certification exam within this period.
COURSE ENROLMENT FEE: The Fee for Enrolment is Rs. 3000 + GST
2. Watch Videos+Submit Assignments
After enrolling, learners can watch lectures and learn and follow it up with attempting/answering the assignments given.
3. Get qualified to register for exams
A learner can earn a certificate in the self paced course only by appearing for the online remote proctored exam and to register for this, the learner should get minimum required marks in the assignments as given below:
CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE
Assignment score = Score more than 50% in at least 9/12 assignments.
Exam score = 50% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.”
4. Register for exams
The certification exam is conducted online with remote proctoring. Once a learner has become eligible to register for the certification exam, they can choose a slot convenient to them from what is available and pay the exam fee. Schedule of available slot dates/timings for these remote-proctored online examinations will be published and made available to the learners.
EXAM FEE: The remote proctoring exam is optional for a fee of Rs.1500 + GST. An additional fee of Rs.1500 will apply for a non-standard time slot.
5. Results and Certification
After the exam, based on the certification criteria of the course, results will be declared and learners will be notified of the same. A link to download the e-certificate will be shared with learners who pass the certification exam.
