1. Selection of Topic

Selection of topic is a huge and important task in a Mini Project. One should have a clear idea about one's subject strengths and the selected topic should be relevant to it. Always select the project that has value addition.

As a graduate you should select a project which is either advantageous to a lot of people or enhance your technical and managerial skills. Your project must play its role towards a positive growth/development in that specific field.

2. Research about the selected topic online

Do some online research about the selected topic. Go through the research papers from different researchers around the world on the topics related to Mini Project. Find some websites containing the information about the materials used for Mini Project.

3. Suggestions from subject experts

Go to the subject experts in your college and interact with them about the Mini Project topic. You can also meet many subject experts from various parts of India through social media and some discussion forums. This helps you in getting suggestions in different possible ways, through which you can get a clear idea on your Mini Project topic.

4. Planning

After getting a clear idea about the topic, prepare a rough plan about procurement of resources, experimentation and fabrication along with your teammates. Make a rough schedule, adapt to it and distribute the work among your teammates. This will keep your Mini Project on track and individuals will come to know about their part in the Mini Project rather than any individual (leader) taking full responsibilities.

5. Execution of plans

Make sure that the materials will be ready for the experimentation/fabrication by the scheduled time. Follow the schedule during experimentation/fabrication to get accurate and efficient results.

The title should be followed by the name of the candidates who have carried out the project with their registered numbers in font size 14 and center aligned. Also the details of their branch of study, college name, affiliated university, dates should be furnished at the footer of the page in font size 14 and 1.5 line spacing.

  • Table of contents: The table of contents should provide the details of all the headings and sub headings with their numberings and page numbers. Title page and bonafide certificate will not bear any page numbers and will not be included in the table of contents. One and a half spacing should be adopted for typing the table of contents.
  • List of Tables: The list of tables should be provided with the exact titles which you will be giving as a reference in the chapters. Also it should include captions and reference numbers wherever necessary. For this the fonts should follow one and a half spacing.
  • List of Figures: All the figures should be represented by the proper captions and reference numbers as you have mentioned in the chapters. For this the fonts should follow one and a half spacing.
  • List of Symbols, Abbreviations and Nomenclature: This should have the list of all the symbols and abbreviations that you have used in the project report with clear explanations. Only standard symbols, abbreviations should be used and they need to be formatted with one and a half line spacing.
  • Chapters: The number of chapters varies based on the type of project done and the methodology followed to do the project. Each chapter may be further divided into several divisions and sub-divisions. But make sure that you provide an appropriate title to each chapter. Tables and figures should be placed immediately after citing the reference in the project text. Also footnotes can be included to explain the reference materials used in the chapters at each and every page.
    In general the chapters will be broadly divided into three parts,
    1. Introductory Chapter
    2. Chapters explaining the project work
    3. Concluding Chapter
  • Appendices: Appendices are provided to give supplementary and additional information to the reader to facilitate better understanding of the project work. Providing this within the main text in the above chapters will make it length and may confuse certain readers. Some general guidelines are,
    1. Appendices should be numbered with Arabic numerals (Appendix 1, Appendix 2 etc)
    2. Tables and references that you provide in the appendices should be numbered and referred to the appropriate chapters
    3. Appendices should carry unique titles and same should be used as the reference in the chapters
  • References: The list of references should be typed 4 spaces below the heading and should have all the reference titles (project reports, research papers & journals) in the sequential order. The author/ authors name should be mentioned clearly next to the title and year of publishing should follow it.
  • General typing instructions: The font should be in black colour. One and a half spacing should be used for typing the general text. Also the general text shall be typed in the Times New Roman font style with font size 14.
