A revolutionary curricular reform: V-C

TIRUCHI: Bharathidasan University has permitted regular under-graduate / post-graduate students of affiliated colleges to simultaneously choose additional correspondence degrees, offered by the Centre for Distance Education, from the coming academic year.

Terming it a `revolutionary curricular reform,' the Vice-Chancellor, C. Thangamuthu, said the university was the first to offer the option to brighten job prospects of students. Chairing a Senate meeting here on Saturday, he said the CDE was poised to reach out to New Delhi, Mumbai and Calcutta by offering MBA and MCA courses from the next academic year.

The Syndicate had cleared a proposal to offer B.Ed. through the CDE in due course. With an intake of 500 candidates a year, the course would cater to thousands of untrained teachers in bona fide schools in the State. The process of appointing full time faculty as per the norms of National Council for Teacher Education had been set in motion, he said.

As the silver jubilee celebration of the university was set to begin from February 4, 2006, members of the university's reconstituted Planning Board comprising educationists A. Gnanam, M. Anandakrishnan and VR. Muthukaruppan, in their perspective plan for the next 25 years, had suggested introduction of more five-year M.Sc. integrated courses to accommodate 500 faculty and 10,000 students by the end of tenth year.

They had also recommended prioritisation of integrated courses in Materials Sciences, Engineering Economics, and Media and Communication.

Online PG Diploma

The School of Engineering and Technology would offer an online PG Diploma programme in Autocad, said the Vice-Chancellor.

The university had forwarded a loan of Rs.75 lakh to its Business Development Centre for establishing a Bio-Medical Diagnostic Centre on the premises. To be manned by experts in Microbiology, Immunology and Histopathology, it would undertake epidemiological survey and carry out clinical consultancy work.

Students in university departments and affiliated colleges would be permitted to undertake their practical/project work involving Medical Microbiology, Molecular Epidemiology, Immunology and DNA Diagnostics.
