Pathan.

Mr. Pathan, accompanied by Special Officer Chandrasekhar, inspected the infrastructure in the main campus of Gulbarga University and also land in the Kadaganchi-Sunkanur villages on Monday. He told presspersons here that to begin with the Central University will offer at least five courses in different disciplines from August.

The vice-chancellor said the university proposes to offer courses in Environment, Indian Culture and Sufism, Integrated Programme in Psychology, MBA, Nano Technology, Bio-Technology and M.A., in English Language teaching. He added that the selection of courses would be made in consultation with senior academicians.

. He said care would be taken to ensure that courses offered by Gulbarga University would not be offered by the Central University.

Prof. Pathan said that the university has been given the mandate to start courses in humanities, sciences, social sciences, medical, IT and engineering. In reply to a question, he said the university need not necessarily offer specialised courses in the Engineering or Medicine but can offer even the undergraduate courses based on the recommendations of the senior academicians.

He said the varsity cannot establish its study centres or post-graduate centres outside the State.

To another question, Mr. Pathan said the university does not propose to provide affiliation to colleges immediately and it will consider it after a few years.

Mr. Pathan said the State Government had handed over 285 acres of land to the university already and another 334 acres of land would be handed over within two or three months. He said he had requested the State Government to ask the chief architect of the State to prepare the master plan of buildings for the university. The work of construction would be handed over to the Central Public Works Department or any other agency selected by the Union Government.
