The Certificate Programme in Textile Designing and Printing is to be offered under the umbrella of the Distance Education Cell (DEC) of the Dayalbagh Educational Institute. The programme is presently run by the Women’s Polytechnic. The mode and sequence of presentation of the course material for the certificate programme presently offered on-campus and the one offered in distance mode will be the same.

Broad Mode of Execution

Keeping in view the objectives of Distance Education, the Certificate programmein Textile Designing and Printing will be offered at several locations within the country.

In the planned mode of execution, DEI provides academic guidelines; supervision and vetting of all course material, and maintains academic and administrative control over the course. All course material are developed, reviewed and vetted by a team headed by the Course Coordinator of the Certificate programme presently running at DEI Women’s Polytechnic. It would be desirable that the Mentor for the programme spends 7-10 days on the DEI Campus to observe the day to day running of the programme before the commencement of the programme.

The primary content of the Certificate programmein Textile Designing and Printing in video DVD/CD (VCD) format has been prepared at DEI. Other course material including Reading Material, Question Banks, have also been prepared by the DEI team. This course will initially run in asynchronous mode as specified below.

º VCD’s of lessons along with the requisite course material will be provided to the study centre, to be viewed on a large screen television.

º Theory and practical work will go together (pl. see the proposed schedule on p.3).

(Video) BA Textile Design student tour | Screen printing part 2

º The course will run at the study centers under the supervision of one to two qualified, trained and competent Mentors.

º The Mentors will be responsible for:

o Course administration, conduct of examinations, and continuous evaluation.

o Conduct of daily practicals, and clearing of all doubts of the students.

o Operating the electronic systems necessary to display the audio-visual material for lectures.

o Arranging and supervising project work and reading assignments.

o Setting of quiz and class tests.

o Performing the role of a facilitator/liaison between the students and the Course Coordinator at D.E.I.

In particular, students successfully completing the programme should be able to:

º Select suitable techniques for different styles and types of Textile designs according to the latest trends.

º Illustrate various types of designs and techniques in different colour media

º Implement craft based work for fabrics

º Collect and record Traditional designs

º Manage the production of different types of textiles on the shop floor

º Set up an entrepreneurial unit

º Acquire knowledge of interpersonal relations and skills in communication and development of presentation skills

º Acquire skill in Computer Aided Textile Design

The Certificate holder will acquire the required skills over a period of two semesters. The teaching will be divided into a 80% practical component and 20% theory lecture component. Mentors should note that the Certificate programme is to lay full stress on practical aspects as reflected in the ratio mentioned above. The primary purpose of the programmeis to enable the students to focus on a particular set of working skills which should lead to a vocation or employment. The evaluation will be done by external as well as internal experts.

Semester System:

This programme is of one year duration consisting of two semesters. The first semester is the odd semester while the second semester is the even semester. An academic session means both the semesters of the session taken together.


Each course is identified by a course number, which contains three letters and three integers. The syllabus of each subject is divided into a convenient number of courses spread over the various semesters.

Continuous Evaluation:

This is the soul of our innovative programme and radically alters the learning process to the benefit of the students. The result of a single examination does not determine the fate of the students. Examination and evaluation is a continuous and an unburdened exercise. Seventy five per cent weightage is assigned to continuous evaluation while 25% weightage is assigned to external end semester examination in each course.

(1) The syllabus is distributed over two semesters. Grasp and knowledge of the subject is evaluated in bits continuously and periodically thereby putting lesser burden on the student as compared to evaluation by one examination at the end of the session. The End Semester examination papers will be set by D.E.I. & evaluated by the examiners appointed by D.E.I.

(2) The courses allotted for a particular semester are completed by the end of the semester and also examined and evaluated simultaneously, thereby reducing the amount of material to be studied at one time.

(3) The mode of evaluation is also varied, depending upon the nature of the subjects and topics. In general, the following components of evaluation are adopted:

Theory Course

(i) Class Tests

(ii) Quiz Tests

(iii) Assignments

(iv) Seminars & Group Discussions

(v) Attendance

(vi) End-semester Examination

Practical Course

(i) Records

(ii) Experiments

(iii) Viva-voce

(iv) Attendance

(v) End-semester Examination

Quiz and Class Test will be set, administrated and evaluated by the Mentor / facilitator.

(4) The student's performance is assessed throughout the semester by continuous evaluation followed by an end-semester examination, which covers the entire syllabus.

(5) The number of credits allotted to each course depends on the relative time a student is expected to devote for the respective course,

(6) Each component of evaluation is assigned a certain weightage towards the computation of over-all performance in each course.

(7) A Progress Report is issued after each odd semester (first semester of an academic session) and the declaration of the result of each academic session is based on student's performance over both the semesters of the session.

(8) The student's performance for a session is indicated through a result card issued to the student after each even end-semester examination of a session, which shows his achievements in each of the courses registered for.

(9) The Institute follows the credit-system of education and as such the marks obtained by the students and the maximum marks assigned for the different courses, in a semester or in all the semesters of a programme of study, are not mentioned in the result cards of the students in absolute terms. Instead, the students in all the courses are evaluated out of a uniform value of 200 and credits are assigned to all the courses in accordance with their relative weightages, and based thereon weighted percentage (%) in the progress (result) card of the odd (even) semester is mentioned.

Thus, the obtained marks and the maximum marks for the different courses of a semester or all the semesters of a programme of the institute are not mentioned in absolute terms in the result cards of students as these do not serve any purpose, as the students are graded in absolute percentage terms which are mentioned in their result cards. However, the person desirous to know the absolute value of the obtained marks and the maximum marks in the different courses of a student can calculate these from his result cards by simple arithmetic process.

(10) In evaluating performance, weightage will be given to: (a) the marks obtained in a course, and (b) course credits. The percent marks obtained overall at the end of the second semesters will be taken to be equivalent to:

Σ (course credits x percent marks)

(Video) Creative careers: What can you do with a Textile Design degree?



Σ (course credits)


Where the marks are obtained out of 200 in the nth course and are the credits assigned to the nth course.

In the final semester result card, the cumulative %, showing the overall performance of a student in a programme is also shown. The cumulative % is calculated by simple averaging of the weighted % of all the semesters.

(11) The final result card issued to a student on completion of all the semesters is computed from the progress/result cards of the two semesters and his/her overall performance is indicated as under:

Percentage of Marks obtained


75% & above

First with distinction

60% & above but below 75%


45% & above but below 60%


35% & above but below 45%


Below 35%


(12) Minimum percentage of marks for a- pass is 35% in each individual course. Securing less than 35% marks in any course will be treated as having failed in that course. If a candidate fails in three or less than three courses in one academic session, he may opt for Summer Remedial Course(s).

(13) Failure in a course due to non-appearance in studies and/or examination(s) on medical or any other ground, whatsoever, will he treated as failure in that course.

(14) If a candidate fails in more than three courses in one academic session or if he fails to pass all the courses after the summer remedial courses or if he misses one/both the semesters of an academic session in part or whole, he will get only one more chance to repeat all the courses of the said session in the next succeeding session as per rules framed on the subject, but he shall not be enrolled as a regular student.

(15) During the repeat session also, if a candidate:

(i) Fails in three or less than three courses, he may opt for summer remedial course(s); and/or

(ii) Fails in more than three courses or fails to pass all the courses after the summer remedial courses or if he misses one/both semesters, he will be required to leave the Institute and he will not be re-admitted.

(16) A student will be allowed to remain on the rolls of the Institute for Certificate course for a period up to Two years only.

P.T./Games will be compulsory in both the semesters; regularity & performance of the student shall be evaluated under Co-curricular activities.

Specific Administrative Points

º There are five professional courses and two institute core courses per semester.

º Each theory course is divided into five units.

º Each unit of each course will be taught through:

o Three video sessions (30 mts each)

o Three theory / practical sessions (2 hours each)

º The practical sessions are based on a set of exercises to be carried out by the students in the class, or at home if they are unable to complete the work, or on Saturdays during extra optional working hours.

º For each course, in each week, there will, therefore, be one contact session of 2.5 hours duration which will have two parts: a 30 minute video session covering salient aspects of the exercises planned for the day, followed by a practical session of two hours.

º Every unit of a paper thus gets covered in 3 weeks, and every course in 15 weeks.

º The video module will be screened and explained, and doubts cleared by the Mentor. Video re-screening in parts may be done during the practical session if felt necessary by the mentor.

º The lesson content of each module will be provided on a separate VCD along with

o A detailed script of the lecture

o Quiz with key (for the Instructor)

º Assuming a Semester of 18 weeks, 15 x 2.5 hours contact sessions per course are planned as outlined above. Three additional contact weeks are for two Series tests and one End Semester Examinations. Continuous evaluation quizzes as per the DEI pattern will be scheduled only on Saturdays.

º In addition, any optional videos not part of the syllabus may be screened on Saturdays.

A suggested weekly screening schedule is given below. The actual schedule may be adjusted according to local holidays. Quiz and test weeks can be planned, as is done in DEI. A schedule for these will be worked out on a Semester-wise basis and notified in advance to the students.
