There are several studies on evaluation of teaching & learning in the classroom situations, which are normally confined to languages, social sciences & humanities. The technical institutions need such evaluation critically. The global scenario and Indian conditions are matching on most of the counts. Indian situation has been given emphasis by selecting two technical institutes of different nature with varied years of establishment and areas of studies in the present contributions. The one Institute (UG-1) was established in 21st century having singular discipline whereas the other (UG-2) was established in 20th century with multidiscipline. Five critical parameters measuring objectively the teaching and learning in the two institutes have been identified in this work. The opinion of budding students was collected on identified parameters as the students particularly at the age of 17-21 years have highest creativity and analytical minds. On the count of most of the parameters UG-2 was assessed better than UG-1.

Study reflects that faculty members of UG-1 require pedagogical training. The most important parameter of communication aspect through electronic system was assessed whether it is entertaining. This is also very closely linked with delivery & clarity. In this case also UG-2 was found better than first one in using such entertaining technologies. The other important issue is face to face interaction and availability of faculty members. In this case the two institutes have similar results. There is a lot of scope of improvements in delivery system in both institutes to make the teaching & learning quite effective, students oriented and using latest technical tools of delivery system.
