   * "...courses tagged as CSE-Minors cannot be taken by CSE students. Only exception is if they fail the corresponding core course, in which case they need facad approval." [[private:fac:2012-02-01-minutes|2012-02-01 FM]]   * "...courses tagged as CSE-Minors cannot be taken by CSE students.

   * "Non-cse students cannot register for core CSE courses via the student ASC interface. This does not preclude these students from crediting these courses, except they now need to take instructor approval and submit the approval to ASC. This rule ensures that faculty are aware of which other department students are currently enrolled in their core courses."

 +  * Those with CS 215 (Data Analysis and Interpretation) as backlog, can complete the requirement by registering for any equivalent course such as EE 223 or CL 202.
 +  * Students in the ARP can complete up to 4 courses through NPTEL, as approved in Senate: https://www.iitb.ac.in/newacadhome/ugrulebook202017July.pdf (page 15, item 4.4). The DUGC page gives the feedback that was sent to the institute. A change that happened in the recent Senate meeting is that these courses will only count for credit requirements, and the grades will not be used for SPI/CPI calculations. The main point is if the student is in ARP this is allowed, otherwise no for core courses.
  
-==== CSE electives related ==== 
  
-  * "Out of the 36 elective-based credits, a maximum of 18 credits can be though electives outside the department. The minimum number of credits through lecture based courses that must be tagged as department electives is 24. "\\ The white list mentioned above includes CSE courses (of course) as well as the [[cse-courses-preapproved-list | pre-approved list here]].\\ References: [[private:dugc:2014-10-09-minutes|2014-10-09 DUGC]], [[private:fac:2014-08-20-minutes|2014-08-20 FM]]\\ Note: This overrides an earlier DUGC decision [[private:dugc:2014-06-09-minutes|2014-06-09 DUGC]], as well as [[private:fac:2012-02-01-minutes|2012-02-01 FM]] +==== CSE electives related ====
-  * Pre-approved list of courses allowed under the "CSE" bucket of size-3 above: +
-    * CSE courses +
-    * Non-departmental courses pre-approved by DUGC, as being allowed to be tagged as CSE courses. This pre-approved list is [[cse-courses-preapproved-list | here]]. +
-    * "In addition, if a student can convince the FacAd that a course has sufficient CSE content, the FacAd looks at the course contents to be convinced of the same. Then the FacAd can permit that course to be tagged as a CSE elective. The FacAd may also choose to propose to DUGC to add that course to the white-list."\\ Reference: [[private:dugc:2014-06-09-minutes|2014-06-09 DUGC]] +
-  * "...upto 2 electives can be replaced by R&D projects with mutual consent between the student and a faculty guide" [[private:fac:2007-07-18-minutes|2007-07-18 FM]].  Instead of R&D projects, BTP I or BTP II can also be used to replace upto 2 electives (Clarification after DUGC e-mail discussion, 4-12-2015). +
-  * "On non-hons electives:\\- Any course as allowed by the institute, with instructor consent can be taken. This may include minors courses from other departments (but not CSE) as per rules." [[private:dugc:2012-07-25-minutes|2012-jul DUGC]] +
-  * "Courses with overlapping content should not be taken as electives. As and when this comes to the notice of the DUGC it will send a letter to this effect to ASC. Faculty are requested to alert the DUGC of courses elsewhere in the institute with overlapping content with departmental courses." [[private:dugc:2012-07-25-minutes|2012-jul DUGC]] +
-  * Electives, R&D:\\ "...upto 2 R&D projects can be taken as a taken as an elective. Further, out of the 7 required electives, at least 4 should be from CSE." [[private:dugc:2007-07-03-minutes|2007-07-03 DUGC]]+
  
 +  * Out of the 36 department elective credits, a minimum of 18 credits must be obtained through CSE courses. The minimum number of credits through lecture based courses that must be tagged as department electives is 24.\\ Courses from other departments that are blacklisted cannot be taken as department electives. Courses from other departments must be officially cross-listed as CSE electives, for them to be considered CSE electives.\\ The current (as decided in April 2020 meeting) list of blacklisted courses and suggested courses from other departments is available at [[:public:dugc:blacklist|Blacklisted courses]] \\ There are no cross-listed courses currently.  This will be applicable starting from Academic year 2020-21.
 +  * Faculty may send proposals for cross-listing outside department courses to DUGC.
 +  * Upto 2 department electives can be replaced by R&D projects, or BTP I or BTP II. 
 +  * Any course as allowed by the institute, with instructor consent,  can be taken as department elective, subject to above restrictions. This may include minors courses from other departments (but not CSE) as per rules.
 +  * Students with an active backlog may complete at most two department electives through NPTEL, as approved by Senate.

-  * **EE112 in place of EE101 as institute core**\\ "Branch change students can substitute EE112 in place of EE101 as an institute core course. This is because EE112 already covers the necessary background material for the Digital Logic Design course. They CANNOT choose to do both courses (EE112 and EE101) though, due to the overlapping content."

The deficit of 2 credits in the core resulting from this substitution can be fulfilled by any other valid CSE course ([[private:dugc:2017-01-11_meeting_minutes|2017-01-11 DUGC]]).
