NORTH INDIA, DON’T BE SURPRISED TO THEIR REFERENCE TO YOUR REGIONAL IDENTITY AS MADRASI OR EVEN A DRAVIDIAN, IF THE PERSON CALLING SO, RELATES HIS REGIONAL IDENTITY AS AN ARYAN. IF ONE ACCEPTS THESE FACTS, THEN THE LATTER COULD BE MORE PRECISE. AND THERE ARE REASONS TO PRIDE IN IT TOO! DRAVIDIANS ARE SAID TO BE THE FIRST ORIGINAL SETTLERS OF ANCIENT INDIA. THEY WERE A VERY ADVANCED CULTURE. EXTENSIVE EXCAVATIONS INDICATE THAT THE DRAVIDIAN CULTURE WAS WELL ESTABLISHED BY ABOUT 2500 B.C., AND MORE RECENT STUDIES REVEALED THAT IT COVERED NEARLY ALL OF THE LOWER INDUS VALLEY. THE DRAVIDIANS EVEN HAD A VERY COMPLEX WRITING SYSTEM. EDUCATION HAD A PROFOUND PLACE IN THE DRAVIDIAN YOU ARE A

T

hanks to their affinity with the old culture, South Indians not only have a distinct language system, their history, literature, architecture, music, spiritual inclination, dress, cuisine and a world view all are way different from the rest of India. 4

It is probably because of their strong attachment to the age old culture and tradition that the discipline levels, alacrity, commitment, innovation…have found value even in the most contemporary of times.

South India has an independent literary tradition going back over 2500 years. Dravidians were the ancient dwellers in India, and in fact, their culture had developed a highly sophisticated way of life. The existence of the Brahui tribe in Baluchistan, to the west of the April-2009


Indus, who speak a Dravidian language like South Indian Tamil, gives evidence that a migration of people or culture did occur. Also the Harappa religion shows many similarities with those elements of Hinduism, especially popular in the present Dravidian culture. Archaeological evidence shows that the Indus Valley culture moved from west to east, with sites towards central and southern India flourishing after Harappa and Mohenjodaro had declined. This civilization is one of the three great early civilizations that arose in the late fourth and third millennia BC around the three large alluvial systems of the Tigris-Euphrates, Nile and Indus rivers. The first known literature of South India is the poetic Sangams, which were written in Tamil between 2500 to 2100 years ago. The 850 CE Kannada classic Kavirajamarga written by King Amoghavarsha I make references to Kannada literature of King Durvinita in the early sixth century CE. Tamil Buddhist commentators of the tenth century CE Nemrinatham make references to Kannada literature of the fourth century CE. Distinct Malayalam and Telugu literary traditions developed in the following centuries. But those were days of yore. Today, there are bitter facts engulfing not just the South but the entire country.

Challenge Today India entered the 20th century with minimal education and awareness and unfortunately it continues. Though there are measures taken by the successive governments to

April-2009

amend this lack, the huge population, the diverse economic conditions, geographical intricacies and more have caused immense delay in the achieving a standard to education. South India has been a part of this huge challenge. With its population of about 233 million and a diverse geography encompassing states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu as well as the union territories of Lakshadweep and Pondicherry, occupying 19.31% of area, the education movement has not been particularly satisfactory. But given these conditions, manmade as well as natural, the region seems to have done a better job in education equality and spread in comparison to most other regions of the country.

Towards Triumph There could be numerous factors which resulted in South India’s success as a regional contributor of top quality intellectuals, products, returns, investment choice and living. Of course many have been tuned with the test of time. These include better land distribution, enforcement of property rights, the mobilization for education, the structure of part competition, perhaps even the private college revolution that swept through many states in the region. The average literacy rate of South India is approximately 73%, considerably higher than the Indian national average of 60%. Traditionally, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka have been home to large, public sector industries (referred to as Public Sector Undertakings, or

PSUs), with both states posting above average growth rates in this sector following economic liberalisation. Chennai, The Detroit of South Asia accounts for about 35% of India’s overall automotive components while the registered headquarters of 42% of all Central PSUs in South India are located in Karnataka. Additionally, the growth of information technology (IT) hubs in the region have spurred economic growth and attracted foreign investments and job seekers from other parts of the country. Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India, is India’s IT hub, and is home to over 200 software companies. Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu figure on the top five states which attracted large share of FDI in the country along with Maharashtra and Gujarat. It comes as no surprise that most Indian software engineers around the globe are either from Karnataka or Andhra Pradesh. And with the state of Kerala having nearly 100% literacy, it is safe to assume that

that the best education options are available in South India.

The Southern Budget The outlay for education during the 11th Five Year Plan, which runs from 2007 to 2012, represents a four-fold increase over the previous plan and stands at Rs 2500 billion. India’s University Grants Commission, the system’s regulator, has been allocated $1.32-billion, up from $1-billion last year, a 28percent increase. The funds are aimed at kick-starting as many new higher-education institutions as possible before national elections that are scheduled for April and May. The South Indian states have its share of allocation in their individual state budget 2009-2010, towards higher education.

Tamil Nadu Budget Considering the need for space requirements of the students, the state government in its 2009-2010 budget has announced to build 1,142 class rooms at a cost of Rs.65 crores in government arts and science colleges. For these works, a sum of Rs.27 crores has been allocated in this Budget. In educationally backward districts lacking adequate facilities for higher education, new government arts and science colleges will be established, with the financial assistance of Union Government in the coming years.

With a view to enabling students from poor families pursue higher education without any impediment, the government has abolished tuition fees to all undergraduate students of government and aided arts and science colleges and has also converted all the self-financing courses in the governments colleges to general courses. In addition, by abolishing the common entrance examination, which was an unnecessary burden to the students, the Government has enabled larger number of students from rural and poor families to get professional education. Besides establishing three new Anna Universities at Trichy, Coimbatore and Tirunelveli, six new engineering colleges have been started in backward places of the State like Tindivanam, Villupuram, Panruti, Thirukkuvalai, Ramanathapuram and Ariyalur. In the coming financial year, new engineering colleges will be started through Anna Universities in the districts of Tiruvannamalai, Thanjavur, Dindigul, Thoothukudi and Kanyakumari districts which do not have government engineering colleges. In addition, the infrastructure facilities in the existing government engineering colleges and polytechnics will be improved under the second phase of the Technical Education Quality Improvement Project with the financial assistance of the World Bank. The provision for Higher education, which was Rs.745 crores in 2005-2006, has been enhanced to Rs.1,463 crores in the coming financial year.

Also, technical education will be expanded by allowing evening polytechnic courses in existing engineering colleges so as to double the diploma seats in the State and by increasing the Industrial Training Institutes (ITI) with the objective of ensuring one per each constituency in a phased manner. In addition, significant quality upgradation of graduate education will brought about by enabling broadband connectivity to all graduate colleges in the State and encouraging them to live broadcast/ web-cast of popular lectures across all colleges.

Karnataka Budget In its 2009-2010 budget, the Karnataka government provided Rs.10 Crore for infrastructure to Tumkur University and Bijapur Women’s University. The government has also provisioned Rs.2 crore for starting a postgraduate study centre at Kushalnagar in Kodagu district and establishment of separate Ayurveda Vaidya University. It has also allocated Rs.10 Crore for the establishment of a new university at Davanagere, Rs.10 Crore for establishment of an Engineering college at Gangavathi and Rs.5 Crore for the establishment of Sanskrit-Veda University at Bangalore, Music and Fine Arts University at Mysore and development of Sanskrit Research and Academy Centre at Melkote.

Andhra Pradesh Budget

education, the government has promoted as many as 18 new universities including one Horticulture University and one Veterinary University in the last four years besides several medical and engineering colleges. The Government started eleven 21st century Gurukulam centres, three IIITs besides expanding the Jawahar knowledge centres substantially. The government also announced that it will enhance employability of people by introducing “Community College” concept through starting evening courses leading to diploma/degree for working people in the existing government colleges/universities. The admission to the courses will be based on affordability and flexibility in terms of prior qualifications, age and course load.

Many other institutions of repute like BITS Pilani and IIT have come up in the State. The total expenditure on higher education increased from Rs.991 crores in 2003-04 to Rs.1501 crores in 2008-09, with the budget for the next year at Rs.2383 crores.

Kerala Budget The fact that Universities in Kerala are not able to invest significantly in higher education is affecting the growth of Kerala as an educated society. The government is aware that Universities require more funds for salaries and other day to day expenses than what is provided now. During 2008-09 the seven Universities were together given a non-plan grant of Rs.228 crore. This is now enhanced to Rs.273 crore with the Agriculture University and Kannur University each getting a 30% increase and others a 15% increase.

During the last budget the government had announced that it would provide a matching grant for the additional resources mobilised by the Universities but no one produced the necessary accounts or claimed this assistance. The government has stressed that the additional resource mobilization would be an important criterion in determining the non-plan assistance from the next year onwards. In order to study the present financial situation of Universities and make recommendations for solving the financial problems in a phased manner the finance department has planned to set up a Committee. A time-bound programme for financial reforms of Universities is planned to be formulated. The government has also increased the total plan assistance to Universities from Rs.61 crore to Rs.70 crore. In addition Rs. 10 crore is set apart for stepping up inter-state study centres – Centre for Environment and Sustainable Development in Mahatma Gandhi University, Centre for Nano Material Devices in Kochi University and Centre for Bio Informatics in Kerala University. The government has also set apart Rs.3 crore for the Centre for Intellectual Property Rights Studies in the School of Legal Studies, Cochin University of Science and Technology. To encourage research and coordinate research works in Engineering Colleges in Kerala, a Centre for Engineering research and development will be set up in

In the Right place, At the Right time

WITH THE GLOBAL RECESSION AFFECTING INDIAN JOB SITUATIONS, THE PRESENT SCENARIO OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY IS MAKING CORPORATIONS STINGY WITH THEIR HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT; SALARY INCREMENTS WENT OUT THE WINDOW AND HIRING OF NEW EMPLOYEES BECAME AN ALIEN CONCEPT. KEEPING THESE ISSUES IN MIND, FRESH OR SOON-TO-BE GRADUATES SHOULD KEEP THEIR OPTIONS OPEN, WHETHER TO GET JOBS OR TO CONTINUE THEIR STUDIES; THE SITUATION DEMANDS THE INDIVIDUAL TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE, AT THE RIGHT TIME.

T

hough this recession hit job market might be discouraging for most students, fresh graduates who find placements might be better off than experienced candidates – they won’t face the problem of being moved down to lower pay-scales and companies will prefer to train these graduates according to their requirements. In 10

a bid to get suitably trained graduates for entry-level positions, certain private banks, insurance companies and sectors like IT and retail, partner with professional institutions to customise focussed training programs for new employees, thus giving them the opportunity to acquire professional qualifications on the job.

If a job seeker feels they are overqualified and under-paid for job offers coming their way, the best option is to enhance their resume and professional worth by pursuing further studies or professional courses, while waiting for the temporary recession period to wade away.

Nevertheless, a number of industrial sectors will remain somewhat isolated: verticals like healthcare, retail, telecommunication, insurance, pharmaceuticals, hospitality and food & beverages. Students should keep in mind that organisations will be strict in terms of hiring, will focus on the right attitude, sincerity and realistic career goals while hiring new graduates. Therefore to effectively market one’s professional self, it would be a good idea to gain some training in soft skills, computer skills, communication skills and personal grooming. Irrespective of the career one decides to choose, certain skills are needed in any workplace. Apart from honing one’s speaking, reading, listening, writing and numerical skills; problem solving, multi-tasking, organisational and tech-savvy skills are of utmost importance. As work processes are increasingly becoming computerised, and with mobile technology becoming the operational norm, it would be advisable to develop and maintain oneself as up-to-date as possible.

sectors of IT and BPOs, making headlines for the past decade, employ approximately 1 million people which is less than 1% of the total workforce established in the nation. The other 99% of the workforce is valid proof that there are many other career options available. Though there has been extensive development in the major cities in the country, the infrastructure has not been able to keep pace with the growth. This has shifted focus on to smaller cities and towns, from where the original talent had emerged in the

first place. This new shift has opened avenues for career choices that still hold significance in the job market of today.

Sales Professionals Career Choices During Recessed Times India has been a services driven economy for ages, with more than 50% of its GDP coming from the public services sector. Showing a steady double digit growth in the past few years, this sector may well continue to be the highest job generator in the nation, regardless of the economic slowdown. The biggest newsmakers were not really the biggest job makers; the

Even in times such as these, the sales function is an area that companies will invest in. The sales force is a vital component of any corporation and a good salesperson is always an asset to an organisation. Successful and experienced sales professionals will always be in high demand. A company stays connected with the market and its customers through sales, while continuously identifying new opportunities, making it an essential skill for every senior

executive to have in their professional portfolio. Salary and growth are almost directly proportional to success in the global market place and can be very rewarding personally.

Telecom and Internet Having one of the largest telecom subscribers base, India with nearly 300 million mobile phone users is rapidly growing in the telecommunications industry. With broadband connections and the availability of the latest communication devices ensuring increased connectivity, this industry does not

show signs of slowing down. The job opportunities created will continue to grow, with several opportunities in this sector available across the spectrum of technology, marketing, management, operations etc.

Analytical Services Global enterprises, in search of investment opportunities and qualified talent from professional and academic backgrounds, have shown immense interest in procuring analytical services from India. Over recent years, India has spawned several specialist service providers and global third party services providers, setting up analytical teams to service the growing market demand. This sector is hampered by

Actuary An actuary or an insurance industry professional assesses risks in the areas of investments, business, life, health, pensions and property to name a few. To become a fullfledged actuary, one needs to write qualifying exams, attend courses and become a member/fellow of the recognised professional body, the Actuarial Society of India. Insurance has a strong domestic as well as global demand, and with a limited supply of professionals in this area the nature of the job suggests a rewarding career with rapid growth, intellectually stimulating work and handsome compensation packages. Apart from these options, one can always show inclination towards the sectors of Education, Healthcare 12

International Business Management International business comprises managing trade or investments in foreign countries, while offering new opportunities in the foreign markets; it differs from business conducted within national borders as it deals with custom’s regulations, export duties etc. In addition to their regular MBA programs, many business schools are now offering MBA International Business or Master of International Business programs in keeping up with the growing internationalisation of business, enhancing the relevance of the existing postgraduate international business management programs in the country.

MIB or MBA (IB) programs are offered as a two-year postgraduate course. It provides an advanced introduction to a wide range of business and management subjects from an international perspective. Courses mostly cover basic aspects of business administration - accounting, finance, management and marketing, but their main focus is subjects like international governmental policies, international financial services, cross-cultural management, unique customs and attitudes, and other factors that affect operations across international borders including the study of the laws and organisations that affect global business and trade. Most international business management professionals begin their careers in their own country in domestic operations, and move to positions abroad after demonstrating their capabilities. Campus placements from prominent business schools offer a wide range of business management careers in global corporations, MNCs, management consultancies and management training, in the areas of international finance, marketing, management, importing/exporting or sales.

Films and Television Cinema and television production combines together the expertise of directors, writers and technical personnel like cinematographers and editors. To bring life into the production, art directors are required to design the sets. Film and TV productions also require professionals to manage lighting, sound, costumes and make up; actors make up an essential part of April-2009


the production also. Cinematography, editing, sound recording and animation, are some typical courses

offered in film training institutes. Scriptwriting courses are usually integrated into direction courses in film schools, but may be offered separately as well. Most actors attend theatre or acting courses to make themselves industry ready. Feature films are not the only area within filmmaking; productions also include documentaries, advertising films, publicity films and educational films. The advent of numerous television channels and advertising has created openings for film industry professionals. Though the competition in this industry is cutthroat, those with flair and the right connections, continue to get opportunities to prove their talent.

Medical Science and Technology The latest advancements in medical technology, imaging and analysis, and telemedicine and procedures have made it vital for medical professionals to acquire the technical skills required for enhanced medical technologies so as to utilise science for better medical care and

services. Medical professionals apart, programs like clinical engineering and medical imaging can train engineering graduates for careers in the medical science and technology sector. Medical science and technology professionals may provide necessary technical inputs to various hospitals, medical industries and research institutes that are working on innovative techniques in medicine. They may also take up challenging techno-medical management tasks. Research, consulting and teaching opportunities are the major focus areas of clinical engineering and biotechnology, and there is also excellent scope for innovation and entrepreneurship in these fields. The School of Medical Science and Technology at IIT Kharagpur, offers many programs related to medical science and technology: a 3 years Master’s in Medical Science and Technology (MMST) for MBBS graduates, along with MS and PhD programs in medical science and technology, and a 2 years MTech in medical imaging analysis. IIT - Chennai and Christian Medical College - Vellore have jointly initiated a two-and-half-year MTech in clinical engineering and a PhD programme in biomedical devices and technology.

Environment Friendly Professionals A report commissioned and funded by the United Nations Environment Program towards decent work in a sustainable, low carbon world, states that the pursuit of green jobs will likely be a key economic driver in the 21st century. With many

companies opting to go the ‘environment friendly’ way, huge amounts are being invested into clean and green spaces – green energy, clean water, clean waste etc. According to the report, greening the economy will involve large-scale investments in new technologies, equipment, buildings and infrastructure and could thus be a major stimulus for much needed employment. The employers in this field originally included academic institutions, laboratories, government and non-profit organisations as well as consulting and research firms. Now, private and public companies will become sources of employment for professionals in this field, as the scale of investment increases and adoption of green technology, regulations and practices becomes more widespread.

Work Permit - Eligible students can apply for up to 20 hours a week of part time work. International students, who have graduated from a course in New Zealand, may apply for a twelvemonth graduate job search visa and are eligible for a 2 year work permit if they find a job relevant to their course of study.

Study Abroad: At What Stage? The most important topic of discussion now remaining would be ‘when to go abroad for higher studies’? Whether a student should pursue a bachelor’s or master’s education in an overseas destination depends largely on the candidate’s long term plans. G

Reasons to choose Singapore as a destination:

Lower Costs - Singapore is a cheaper destination when compared to other countries. The close proximity with India reduces travel expenses by 50% as compared to major destinations like USA, UK, Canada or Australia.

G

If a student is considering working in the selected destination, then pursuing post-graduate studies is a better idea since gaining employment and a workvisa become that much easier if one completes their master’s degree. Getting a student visa for master’s programs and scholarships through GRE, GMAT etc. are a much smoother process with post-graduate education. For a student wanting to complete studies and return to the India, pursuing an undergraduate degree will see them gainfully employed here. The student visa process becomes more stringent and the scholarships offered to students on basis of SAT examinations are lesser in the case of undergraduate education. K 17

UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH SCIENCES IS MEMBER OF ASSOCIATION OF INDIAN UNIVERSITIES AND COMMON WEALTH UNIVERSITIES ENGLAND.

At the relevant point of time there were 210 colleges teaching Health Sciences scattered over entire state but affiliated to 6 different Universities with six different Head Quarters. Closely on similar lines as that of the Agricultural University, Legislature of Karnataka with sagacity passed an Act called ‘Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences Act, 1994’ that unified these colleges tantamount to transition of affiliation and monitoring powers from six different Universities to ONE University under one roof. (Exclusivity of this University took its birth here and distinctiveness is not only visible but touchable).

Unique Features Unlike other Universities a person who has distinguished himself in Health Sciences can alone become the Vice-chancellor to this new set up. The reason behind this action is, while planning the Development of the state, health was considered as fundamental necessity for national progress and rightly so. Rajiv Gandhi University is the biggest among the Health Universities in the country with over 622 colleges

spread over entire State of Karnataka.

Curriculum The general objectives and goals of the curriculum include national goals, institutional goals with liberty to suitable improvement as per the regional requirements in the interest of standards. To put it in a nut shell the curriculum is so oriented towards educating the students; in a manner the graduates coming out of the portal of the University affiliated colleges after training will be capable of functioning independently in their respective assignments.

Notable Achievements G The first task the new University undertook is to revise the curriculum to provide for uniformity and standard all over the state. The Curriculum and Syllabi is periodically updated to meet the changing needs and also conform to the standards fixed by Apex Bodies.

G Online transmission of question papers to the centers of examination a few minutes before the commencement of the examination. This has put to an end to the possibility of leakage of question papers. Bar code answer scripts are given for evaluation. Perhaps this is the first University that took radical fool proof methods of examination to eliminate malpractices.

G Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences has developed a Digital Library Network with necessary infrastructure of computer hardware, software and databases for dissemination and document delivery of health science information resources to the affiliated institutions under its jurisdiction.

HELINET

Dr. S. Ramananda Shetty, VC, RGUHS ing to Under graduate courses is subjected for double valuation and that of Post Graduate courses is subjected for four valuations independently and the marks are transferred to the OMR sheet against the code. The results are announced within 15 days of the completion of Practical examination. Provision for challenge valuation has been incorporated to bestow justice on the aggrieved students. Our examination system and evaluation is through out the course. Internal Assessment is being carried out in fixed periodicity as per Apex Bodies regulations. Our evaluation is simply not memory testing after a given duration.

HELINET stands for Health Science Library and Information Network conceived by the University and successfully implemented which is first of its kind in the country. The consortium was started with a vision to improve the quality of education and research in the Health Science

institutions of the state through enhanced access to high quality medical information. HELINET‘s goal is to deliver information to user’s desk-top, with round-the clock access. The major benefit of this consortium was expanded access to core international e-journals. Before the launch of the consortium, access to foreign medical journals by each college was limited to around 100. HELINET has made it possible for each college to access and share the contents in more than 600 journals, in effect increasing the access provision by 6 times. HELINET also provides access to 940+ international reference e-books for the

benefit of under graduate and post graduate students all over the State under RGUHS jurisdiction. Digital Library also provides access to 7000+ Online Bibliographic Database of PG Dissertations, 4500 + Digitized UG & PG courses Previous Years Examination Question Papers and 141 Current Print Foreign and Indian journals. Digital Library offers academic degree programs of one year Post Graduate Diploma in Health Librarianship (PGDHL) and Ph.D Program in Health Science Librarianship. Digital Library also designed and developed tools for digitization and hosting of Post Graduate Dissertations and Ph.D Thesis, which forms the basis for providing access to the future digitized content. The future plans of the Digital Library are to expand and establish its operations and services in much more bigger dimensions at its new campus in acquiring the world class e-literature and reach out to every student, teacher, researcher of health science community not only in the State of Karnataka but also in the whole country. In addition to this, in recent years there is a paradigm shift in the concepts of Post Graduate programme by giving more emphasis to “Training” than “Teaching”. With this revised concept and with enhanced commitment to offer the best possible training, there is a definite need to look beyond the limitations of any institution offering PG programs to explore possibilities of ‘external postings’ and also ensuring the best available training– with exposure to newer technology, equipment and skilled human resource. Hence, the

University has plans to post PG, Super Specialty students in the Centers of Excellence such as NIMHANS, Bangalore, Sankara Nethralaya - Chennai, Adiyar Cancer Institute– Chennai, Tata Memorial Hospital – Mumbai etc.

Research To encourage research activities in affiliated colleges the University is providing funds, travel grants for research activities, who attend national and International seminar, presentation of scientific papers. The University is committed to bring together and dissipate the latest research developments amongst scientist / research scholars through many activities like, organizing lectures by eminent scholars, seminar symposium.

Growth In the year of inception, colleges affiliated were 210. Now there are 622 affiliated colleges. The first convocation was held during March 1999 and 316 graduates were awarded degree. During March 2009 in the eleventh Annual Convocation 23,839 graduates were awarded degrees.

Future Plans The University is planning to shift to its own campus soon. The campus will create an ambience for collaborative hands on training effective learning with adequate clinical facilities. This dominance derives advantages of the campus with superspeciality and multi speciality hospitals around it. The University is planning to start its own departments for conducting M.Sc programme in clinical research to

provide growing need of human resources in this field. A Lecture on “Clinical Research” was arranged at RGUHS by Dr. George Chandy, Founder, ARMID, IRVIN, USA during January 2009. Dr. George Chandy is interested to have collaborative programmes with RGUHS and the University is in constant touch with ARMID, IRVIN, USA to explore means to strengthen the field of clinical research at RGUHS. The University is also planning to develop infinite class rooms. In order to inculcate a scientific temperament and create interest in research among the faculty and the students University has planned to establish grants and contract office to facilitate the affiliated colleges in getting financial assistance from national and international funding agencies. Gulf Medical University, UAE has come forward for an MOU with the University to exchange faculty and students and to have this University students posted to International famous institutions.

Fight against HIV & TB The university has considered it important to be able to support research to understand HIV & TB. It has taken the initiative to begin a Post MBBS 12 months residential certificate course in HIV Fellowship in at least two institutions in the State with a maximum of 10 participants from July 1st 2009. The University is also keen on developing collaborations with Manitova University and University of Washington and other international and national agencies engaged in combating HIV and TB. K

Andhra’s Critical Aspects of Higher Education

AS FAR AS HIGHER EDUCATION IS CONCERNED , A NDHRA PRADESH IS PLACED AMONG THE TOP 3 STATES IN THE COUNTRY. IN TERMS OF EXPANSION I.E. NUMBER OF ENGINEERING COLLEGES OR PROFESSIONAL COLLEGES , THE STATE HOLDS THE TOP RANK IN THE COUNTRY BUT IN TERMS OF QUALITY AND INFRASTRUCTURE PROBABLY

eferring to the various programmes and initiatives of Higher education in Andhra Pradesh, there are three critical aspects that are being taken into account; Expansion of higher education, Equity and the third most important aspect - Quality in higher education. Given the present global scenario, the relevance of higher education and the need to bring changes in it with regard to curriculum, programmes and infrastructure are very much considered to address the

April-2009

emerging concerns of the national and global economy. Much like any other state or a developing country, the enrolment scenario and the occupational strength of higher education in Andhra Pradesh resemble a pyramidal structure i.e. 9 lakh students are enrolled every year at 10+2 or secondary school level also considered as base level, 4 lakh at graduate level, one lakh at Post Graduate level and only few thousand at the PhD level or the top level. 21


present day job requirements and changing needs of global and domestic economy. Conventionally, during the 1950’s and 1960’s the educational wisdom was looked from the view point of generating intellectual empowerment, enlightenment and creating responsible citizens, as these were the prime concern then.

Dr. K.C. Reddy, Chairman, AP State Council for Higher Education

Dominance of Private Sector The critical characteristic of higher education in Andhra Pradesh is the dominance of the Private sector, particularly in the field of professional education. Therefore it is obvious that concerns always exist with regard to quality, equity and access. To meet some of these concerns the Government has taken up constructive steps during the last five years to regularly monitor and gauge the performance of private player in professional education and ensure that they live up to the stipulated and laid out standards. Another strategy of the government to counter the private sector is through creating new Universities, Engineering Colleges, Junior Colleges and undergraduate colleges in every district of the state that are exclusively run by the government. Adding to this, the government has also introduced new programmes and courses by revamping the curriculum in the existing as well as in the newly formed universities and colleges. These courses are well modeled in accordance to contemporary situations of the 22

But today, with the beginning of 21st century, the era of globalization and liberalization has enabled the private sector to become a critical player in the new economy. This has lessened the presence of Government in the production sector making it the least employer. As the private sector has become the major employer, it seeks the best talent and the onus is on the education system to churn out the best possible talented pool.

New Universities India is a young country, as more than 50% of the Indian population is below 25 years of age, now the task of the educational system is to translate these numbers in to qualified human resources. Moving towards achieving its educational objective, the government in the last five years has created 10 new Universities in the conventional sectors. We have created new University in Telangana, Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema. We have also created 3 more Technological universities under the frame work of JNTU, and 2 agricultural universities under the frame work of N.G.Ranga Agricultural University. We have also created a Veterinary and Horticulture university along with a Law university at Vizag.

Overall, during the last 5 years Andhra Pradesh has witnessed a historic feat of creation of as many as 17 universities both in the private and government domains. As the number of universities increased in the state obviously the concerns of faculty availability are always there. The government has also taken commendable steps in this direction and has restored adequate teaching staff. We also feel that merely creating universities won’t serve the purpose if adequate faculty is not available. To make available adequate faculty, we have done rationalization as far as the old universities are concerned and recruited enough new faculty in all the newly established Universities and college. As of now we have successfully addressed the faculty component.

Accessibility With the success of equity and quality aspects in the higher education, the government is

destined to accomplish the third component of accessibility of higher education to the lower rung of the society. In this regard the government has implemented an innovate scheme called ‘Fee reimbursement scheme, for OBC’s and Minorities whose parental annual income is less than one lakh. Under this scheme the student need not pay any fee for his education. Instead the government will pay the entire tuition fee on his behalf directly to the institutions. Adding to this, the government has also promised to reimburse the tuition fee of the economically weaker sections of the forward caste. This would definitely give a boost to the deserving candidates. Moreover, the government has taken up the task of revising the curriculum for all the under graduate programmes to make higher education more multidimensional and inter disciplined. However, this task has been given to the universities to take care. We want the engineering programmes to bring in the element

of Management, geography, and economics apart from engineering and basic sciences in their curriculum. Similarly in Humanities and basic sciences we want the element of engineering subjects and even law studies which would make the higher education multidimensional and inter disciplined. Despite doing all these, still there exists a wide gap in the availability of quality teaching faculty. To bridge this gap the government has taken up the faculty training as a major initiative to improve the teaching capabilities of the existing faculty and the new recruits. The curriculum of higher education in the state is designed in such a way that, besides taking care of short term goals of employment, it also addresses the considerations of medium term and long term requirements of R&D simultaneously. In order to achieve this initiative the Government has launched 5 year integrated programme. After 10+2, a student is eligible to join in a 5

year integrated programme where an undergraduate and post graduation education is integrated together. For example a student who is admitted into 5 year integrated M. Sc chemistry, Physics, economics, MBA, will be trained in both the under graduate and postgraduate elements of study. But a varied and large number of components are brought into this programme. The government has allocated special grants to all universities that have started the 5 year integrated programme. Almost every university has launched the 5 year integrated programme. This dimension of education would definitely address the problem of quality human resources in the industry and would also enable the research and development activity in the country. As employability is a major concern of the government, it has introduced finishing schools to train the outgoing batches in the colleges and universities so that the students can

develop some of the soft skills which are very much essential for freshers. Employment opportunities in the new economy are not just in IT. They are there in Retail, Hospitality, tourism, aviation, medical transcription and health sector. So we have identified these sectors and have planned the exploit the potential by conceptualizing a concrete strategy wherein we are involving the industry to developed the curriculum and train the students in the finishing schools. Another major initiative of the Government is establishment of Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies which has come into existence since 2008-09 with an initial intake of 6000 students in 3 campuses through the state—one at Basara in Adilabad district, another Nuzivedu in Krishna district and the third Headquartered at Rajiv knowledge valley in Kadapa district.

in these colleges is a 6 year integrated engineering programme. Every student who completes his 10th grade is eligible to get admitted in to these colleges provided he stands top among the students of his mandal. The selection process is based on mandal best rather than district best or state best. The idea is to empower the rural youth through providing them the state of art educational facilities. The government is subsidizing to a tune Rs 1 lakh per student who are being admitted in to the Rajeev Gandhi Knowledge Technological University. Initially each student is being asked to pay only Rs 36000 towards boarding and tuition fee. In case of SC, ST, OBC and minorities a large part of this amount is being reimbursed by the state government. Last year about 6200 student have been admitted in the 3 campuses through out the state. During 200910 it is estimated that another 6000 students would be admitted. With

all these achievements the UGC and the National Knowledge commission have taken Andhra Pradesh as model state for higher education and they have recommended establishing more such universities and educational institutes in the state.

Future Plans We have just started working on the status on policy and strategy for higher education in the state for Andhra Pradesh. We need to define and design an appropriate strategy because expansion is some thing that needs to be sustained, quality is something needs to be sustained and taken care. Similarly the equity dimensions also need to be sustained, continuously supervised and checked every year. These are not the things that you do for a year and leave them. There should be a focused sustainability in all areas of this sector.

University Science Instrumentation Centre For the training of experimental scientists of high caliber and for sustaining the continuous interest of students in the environment of rapid advances of science and technology, the university departments and colleges need to be continuously provided with highly reliable sophisticated instruments for teaching and advanced research. To fulfill these aspects, there is a requirement of well planned structure with appropriate facilities and personnel in all aspects of instrumentation, the UGC has thought about the new scheme University Science Instrumentation Centers. This special scheme of UGC i.e., University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC) was established in the year 1993 in Gulbarga University with the financial support of UGC & it is under Level-I. This provides various centralized instrumentation facilities for academic & research community in this region.

S

cience is nothing but a reason-based analysis of sensation up on our awareness. It’s an effort to discover and increase human understanding of

28

how reality works. Its purview is the portion of reality which is independent of religious, political, cultural, or philosophical outlook. Knowledge in science is gained through research. The methods of scientific research include the generation of hypotheses about how phenomena work, and experimentation that tests these hypotheses under controlled conditions. The outcome or product of this empirical scientific process is the formulation of theory that describes human understanding of physical processes and facilitates prediction.

The development of science and technology in any country will be a key factor in determining its status and power in an open economy, and we cannot afford to be left behind. While it is a matter of concern to see a fall in the number of youngsters seeking careers in science, it is disturbing to have a situation where scientists of excellence are hard to find. Mediocrity cannot challenge the impact of globalization on our economy. We need to realize that students and their parents are also decision makers in the scientific

April-2009


future of our country and they appear to be more practical-minded decision makers. Of late we have been seeing that, the IT sector and engineering courses have been drawing students away from basic sciences. However, another reason is that students of basic sciences have few job opportunities in our country. We have failed to find a remedy to this situation. We have not assessed the requirements of scientific manpower in our country and have failed to train/educate our students accordingly. Students have been over-produced, accompanied by a failure in standards. The demand for trained manpower in science is variable. It is therefore essential to ensure that we have a clear view about our requirements. A major outlet for the cream of our trained scientists has been the West, more so the US. This outlet appears to be narrowing down due to the US visa policies. It is therefore urgent that policy decisions and steps are taken to ensure that we train youngsters based on our national requirements and also keep the global opportunities in mind. It would be fruitful to attract foreign investments in the country, whereby our scientific manpower, which is competent, is utilized. Nobody does science for fun any more. In India Science has moved from being just a subject to more extensive entity and is now used heavily in constructive innovation. Same goes with students and freshers passing out from colleges with an open mind to explore the scientific domain. And science immaculately has intrinsic but great options to choose from. April-2009

It’s hard enough to wade through the endless stream of information at college without having to decide what type of degree you want. After all, shouldn’t you just have to pick a major and be done with it? Not only do college students have to pick a primary area of interest, they have to decide HOW they want to spend their academic years in that area. And, with college costs soaring, this decision is commonly based on what careers can be had with the different degrees. Typical professions, be it being a Doctor, an Engineer, or an Architect, all have their roots grounded to Science. Without having the basic knowledge of science i.e. Mathematics, Biology, chemistry and physics there is no question that these professions would exist. Therefore a bachelor’s degree in science gives perspective to one’s career. With the sciences broadening by the day there are plenty of new avenues opened up as its widening horizons are exceptionally enormous. Few of the conventional and the new lot are mentioned here below. Usually career options of a science graduate depend on the subject that one has taken in B.Sc. A bachelor’s degree in science gives a lot of flexibility to students to choose a subject of their own interest from range of subjects such as Maths, Physics, Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Horticulture, Veterinary science, Sericulture, Architecture and Agriculuture. The career opportunities available to the students depend on their respective specialization at the graduation level. For instance, if you are a Mathematics student, you have the option of choosing M.Sc (Maths) or can also go for

MBA (IT) and MCA. In case you don’t want to study MBA (IT), the other option probably will be Production Management or Marketing.

Agriculture Work in agricultural sectors ranges from the totally academic pursuits of research and teaching to inspection and other supervisory work to commercial activities of establishing farms, plantations, orchards and carrying on exports of produce from them. Agriculture is no longer practiced by rule of thumb, instead it has become highly scientific, sophisticated and mechanized and consequently, very profitable too. Horticulture, dairying and poultry farming are allied agricultural activities that have become economically viable opportunities today. Career opportunities: Basic training in agriculture is offered as a Bachelor’s degree course of three to four years duration at all the

agricultural universities in the country. The minimum eligibility required for admission to B.Sc. (Ag.) course is a pass in the plus two or equivalent examination with science or agriculture. Many universities fix a minimum aggregate of 50% marks to be obtained in the qualifying examination. The agricultural education system in the country offers degree programmes in 11 specific disciplines viz. agriculture, veterinary science, agricultural engineering, forestry, home science, dairy technology, fisheries, sericulture, marketing, banking and co-operation, horticulture and food science. It also offers postgraduate programmes in more than 55 fields of specialization. Career opportunities cover the whole spectrum of the agricultural industries from farmer to consumer, plough to plate. Choosing the right course is therefore essential. Due to global changes Career opportunities have become unlimited for agricultural and agri-based graduates in recent years. Marketled agriculture, technology-led agriculture, consumer driven agriculture, trade liberalization, futures marketing, intellectual property rights, agri-business, preci-

sion farming, bio-fuel crops, micro irrigation, fertigation, and market intelligence are few areas which shape the agriculture of the future. The spurt in government support for export of agri-products has evoked considerable interest among the large business houses which have worked out agreements for technology transfer, marketing tie-ups, and management and trading contacts with leading foreign counterparts. In the field of fruits and vegetables too, India has tremendous export potential. With the commercialization of agriculture and horticulture there are varied opportunities for salaried jobs as well as entrepreneurship. Landscapers and horticulturists are hired by hotels, health farms, and holiday resorts to beautify their surroundings. Florists and nurseries are doing lucrative business especially in the metropolitan cities. Suburban farmhouses have become important suppliers for the domestic market. Research openings are also increasing as research institutions gear up to accept the challenge of the export market with the combined support of the government and the corporate sector.

Astronomy While most astronomy graduates work in a related occupation and eventually obtain an advanced degree, others choose another direction. In recent years, both undergraduate and graduate students have been getting jobs in programming and in operation or support, especially of UNIX-based systems. Many careers do not require a specific major, but rather a wide range of demonstrated skills and accomplishments. Regardless of your career choices, increase your marketability to employers through internships, responsible work experience, good grades, and college activities. Career Options to Consider: Astronomy majors possess skills applicable to numerous work settings. While education beyond the bachelor’s degree—usually the Ph.D.—is generally required for placement in professional astronomy positions. Graduates may be found in such diverse settings as research, education, government, and industry. In the private sector, astronomers are employed by scientific supply houses and astronomical magazines. More apply their training in computers, electronics, equipment design, and data analysis to non-astronomical research, for the astronomer’s training is general enough and technical enough to open up many satisfying, challenging careers.

Job Prospects: Job opportunities for postgraduates in biotechnology are increasing in India. Students can explore job options in the following fields: Drug and pharmaceutical research, Public funded laboratories, Chemicals, Environment control, Waste management, Energy, Food processing & Bioprocessing industries. The Government of India provides large-scale April-2009

employment to most biotechnologists in its research laboratories.

Botany/Plant Science Botanists study the origin, development, structure, physiology, distribution, environment, interrelationship, classification and every other aspect of plant life and relate their findings of possible solutions to agricultural, horticultural and forestry problems. This means that there is an enormous amount of studying involved before you could make a difference in the world.

Career opportunities: with Botany at B.Sc, there are host of opportunities available. One can go for teaching after doing B.Ed. The better option is to go for NET (National eligibility Test) for a lecturer job. After B.Sc, doing M.Sc with a specialization in Genetics and tissue culture could lead to a much better career. With Botany as background one can also go for a course in Bio informatics and can try for a job in agro-product producing companies. An MPhil in microbiology or biotechnology would definitely place you in a good job in pharma companies. Among other careers available to a person who enjoys the outdoors are positions as an ecologist, conservationist, forester, or plant explorer. A person with a mathematical background might find biophysics, developmental botany, genetics, modeling, or systems ecology to be exciting fields.

Chemistry Chemistry is the scientific study of interaction of chemical substances that are constituted of atoms or the

Educational qualification: A degree in botany provides a solid scientific foundation to make you more employable in other fields as well. A college degree, preferably in botany, plant science or biology, is necessary for most careers in botany. For an undergraduate degree, most colleges and universities have a biology department with courses in botany. Usually who is inclined to do a course in Botany should study biology at intermediate 10+2 level. 33


subatomic particles: protons, electrons and neutrons. Atoms combine to produce molecules or crystals. Chemistry is often called “the central science” because it connects the other natural sciences such as astronomy, physics, material science, biology, and geology. There are endless career options in chemistry. However, the employment options depend on how far one has taken education. A 2-year degree in chemistry won’t get you very far. You could work in some labs washing glassware or assist at a school with lab preparation, but you wouldn’t have much advancement potential and you could expect a high level of supervision. A college bachelor’s degree in chemistry (B.A., B.Sc.) opens up more opportunities. A 4-year college degree can be used to gain admittance to advanced degree programs (e.g., graduate school, medical school, law school). With the bachelor’s degree, you can get a bench job, which would allow you to run equipment and prepare chemicals. A Master’s degree in chemistry or chemical engineering, or other field opens up far more job options. A terminal degree, such as a Ph.D. or M.D., leaves the field wide open.

process industries such as fertilizer, pesticides, specialty chemicals, dyes, dyestuff, paint and lubricants. Candidates with an additional management degree are sought by private industries. In the government sector, chemical engineers are employed to solve environmental problems such as waste and water treatment, on energy sector such as energy conservation and research on alternate energy sources and healthrelated research projects, defense establishments and atomic power plants. They are also employed in service industries such as scientific research and development services, particularly in energy and the developing fields of biotechnology and nanotechnology. They are also employed in a variety of manufacturing industries other than chemical manufacturing, such as those producing electronics, photographic equipment, clothing, pulp and paper and even in the development of aircrafts. Besides these, Chemical Engineers can opt for teaching as a remunerative option.

Clinical Research A growing demand for clinical trial professionals has led to an increasing number of institutions offering academic programmes in the same. Delhi, at present, has over 15 hospitals, medical colleges and institutions conducting clinical trials. Pharmacy as a career option has always been in demand. India being a huge nation of about a billion populations, diseases both minor and major have been a curse upon the weak and the poor. In the previous centuries and almost till the middle of the 20th century killer diseases such as acute respiratory infections, diarrhea, depression, tuberculosis, measles, anaemia etc have been affecting thousands every year. With the advancements in medical science most of these diseases have been brought under control, with the help of high powerful antibiotics and other life saving drugs. This is where pharmacy steps in to fill the void.

Career Prospects: Wide employment opportunities await chemical engineers both in the public sector as well as the private sector. They can seek jobs in areas such as manufacturing industries, food processing industries, chemical

Branches of Engineering are categorized as Aerospace Engineering - The design of aircraft, spacecraft and related topics. Chemical Engineering - The conversion of raw materials into usable commodities. Civil Engineering - The design and construction of public and private works, such as infrastructure, bridges and buildings. Electrical Engineering - The design of electrical systems, such as transformers, as well as electronic goods. Mechanical Engineering - The design of physical or mechanical systems, such as engines, powertrains, kinematic chains and vibration isolation equipment. With the rapid advancement of Technology many new fields are gaining prominence and new branches are developing such as Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Nanotechnology, Molecular engineering, Mechatronics etc. These new April-2009


specialties sometimes combine with the traditional fields and form new branches such as Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics and Electrical and Computer Engineering. For each of these fields there exists considerable overlap, especially in the areas of the application of sciences to their disciplines such as physics, chemistry and mathematics. Eligibility for Engineering Education: Candidates having completed class XII with physics, chemistry and mathematics are eligible to apply for admission to the various engineering colleges. Students can compete on an all-India basis for admission to the prominent colleges like IITs. State colleges of engineering take in students with state domicile, but provide some seats for students from other states. In some colleges selection is based on the percentage of marks got in class XII (in physics, chemistry and mathematics), while some other colleges give admission based on some common test. The duration of B.E/B.Tech courses lasts for 4 years with compulsory project work in the final year. After completion of engineering graduation the student is eligible to get an admission into M.E/M.Tech course which will last for two more years.

that could be used to cure the deadly diseases. Genetic Engineering (GE) is a highly complicated and advanced branch of science which involves a wide range of techniques used in changing the genetic material in the DNA code in a living organism. ‘Genetic Engineering’ means the deliberate modification of the characters of an organism by the manipulation of its genetic material. Genetic engineering comes under the broad heading of Biotechnology. There is a great scope in this field as the demand for genetic engineers are growing in India as well as abroad. The basic eligibility criteria for a graduate degree (BE / B.Tech) is 10+2 or equivalent examination, with Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics as well as genetics as part of the biology OR a bachelors degree in science or molecular biology. Genetic engineers are mainly absorbed in medical and pharmaceutical industries, the agricultural sector, and the research and development departments of the government and private sectors. They can also take up teaching as an option.

Genomics The Genomics focuses on developing technologies to understand and use

the diverse capabilities of plants and microbes for innovative solutions to DOE energy and environmental mission challenges. If you are attracted to a career in the broad field of genomics, then there are some things you can do to better prepare yourself. First, as an undergraduate, make sure you take a range of sciences and math, not just biology. The types of math courses that will be especially helpful include probability and statistics, linear algebra, and a programming language such as C++ or perl. Physics is helpful since physical properties govern all aspects of biological activities. Chemistry will prove advantageous since chemical reactions drive biological systems and genomic methods. Of course, biology classes will prove useful with genetics, molecular biology and cell biology topping the list, though a firm understanding of evolution will be advantageous as well. Being able to access information and analyze data will prove more useful than memorizing endless lists of facts since the rate of new information is accelerating and thus has become too expansive. Make sure you get hands-on experiences. Work in a laboratory

37


or in the field with someone at your school who is conducting research. Get a summer research job either on your home campus or at other institutions. Research experiences will be advantageous in any job search regardless of which aspect of genomics you choose. You do not have to go to graduate school to find a job in a genomics field, but If graduate school sounds appealing, think about getting a job in a lab for a year or two before going to graduate school. By the time you graduate, you will have been in school for at least 16 years and you deserve a break where you don’t have homework or test. Plus, one or two years of practical experience will make you more appealing to graduate schools and you will be better informed about which school is best for you. During this time, you can reevaluate if graduate school is appropriate for you or not. What kind of job do you want and what degree does it require - bachelors, masters or doctorate? Finally, what kind of skills do you need? Again, there are many skills needed to perform genomics. Useful skills include computer programming, bench laboratory skills, engineering expertise, and chemical synthesis. The more you know the better off

you’ll be in a rapidly changing work environment. But more than just technical skills, you will need to have some other abilities such as an ability to communicate in written and oral formats. It is important to know how to work well as a member of a team where the common objective takes priority over individual ones. Finally, appreciate challenges which require new ways of looking at problems and new types of collaborations with a diverse range of people.

Healthcare Combining medical technology and the human touch, the health care industry administers care around the clock, responding to the needs of millions of people—from newborns to the critically ill. Positions in health care require specialized knowledge that can best be gained through a quality educational program. In fact, most employers in the allied healthcare industry prefer to hire people with a degree or certificate. Plus, with a degree, you’ll be able to advance in your career faster than if you relied on on-the-job training. Some of the training programs available in the healthcare field

include Cardiovascular Technology, Counseling, Dental Assistant and Hygienist, Emergency Medi- cal Technician, Fitness Trainer, Healthcare

Indian Science in a Downward Spiral

“Unfortunately India’s scientific research capability — whether measured in the number of research papers published in journals or the number of patents registered — is slipping. This bodes ill for Indian society because without the constant development of science and technology capability through original research, there can’t be meaningful development,” said Mehta, director of IISc, interviewed in EducationWorld (September 2001).

I

t’s hardly surprising that college and university gradu ates don’t pursue careers — in effect research careers — in science. The Indian economy’s investment in research and development (R&D) is much too low to

42

afford intellectual, creative or monetary satisfaction. According to the Human Development Report 2001, India’s annual outlay on R&D (government and industry combined) aggregates to a mere 0.7 percent of GNP or Rs.2,800 crore annually, much less than the one percent benchmark recommended by the National Committee on Science & Technology way back in 1973.

scientists and Technologist in the world, there is also a flip side existing to this notion. An ill east wind originating in China has blown over the Indian subcontinent, shattering the self-esteem and comfortable assumptions of Indian academics that pride themselves upon having developed the world’s second largest pool of qualified professionals.

Even the recommended one percent benchmark is too modest by current international standards, given that the industrialised nations spend 22.5 percent of their GNP on R&D.

Stanford universities and the California Institute of Technology are the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), ranked in the 251-300 slot, and the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) of Delhi and Kharagpur in the 451-500 slot. There is hardly any surprise in indigenous groves of academia that none of the mainstream Indian universities - dumbed down by decades of interference and intervention by populist politicians and pliant bureaucrats - have made it into Shanghai Jiao Tong’s list of the world’s top 500. But the lowly ratings of the IISc and India’s much-trumpeted IITs which have prompted cover stories in American business media - have surprised many. In particular, within IISc - which sprawls over 440 acres of prime real estate in Bangalore, has an annual budget estimated at Rs.120 crore and prides itself on being rated one of the top 20 research universities globally according to a UNESCO survey (1997) - there is considerable, though well-disguised, dismay that the SJTU survey accords it an Asia-Pacific ranking slot of 27-36. Prof N. Mukunda, an alumnus of St. Stephen’s, Delhi and the University of Rochester and currently director of the Centre for Theoretical Studies at IISc, is somewhat dismissive of SJTU’s assessment and ranking methodologies. “Too much weightage is given to the number of science Nobel Laureates produced by universities. This questionable assessment methodology works against Indian scientists

and institutions. Nevertheless, having said that, there’s no doubt that in recent years the quality of science education dispensed in undergrad institutions is of poor quality. College labs are generally under-equipped, overcrowded and poorly staffed. Questions from students are often discouraged and experiments and demonstrations are few. Due to lack of laboratory facilities, science is taught unimaginatively and learnt by rote. All this has had a snowball effect: low standards at the undergrad level are reflected among entrants

into postgraduate education and research,” says Mukunda who over a decade ago chaired a committee constituted by the Indian Academy of Sciences (estb. 1934) which suggested immediate reforms in undergraduate and postgraduate science education. Unfortunately for Indian science educators and researchers, other surveys tend to support the broad conclusions of SJTU’s survey, which indicates that India’s once highlyrated science and technology

capability is caught in a downward spiral. Three years ago the UNDP’s Human Development Report 2001, which pioneered a Technology Achievement Index (TAI), ranking some 150 nations according to their proven ability to absorb new and old technologies, offered hard evidence that India’s much vaunted pool of trained scientists and technical personnel is shrinking. According to the TAI, the gross tertiary science enrollment ratio (i.e percentage of school leavers entering the science stream) in India during the period 1995-97 was a mere 1.7 — cf. 23 percent in South Korea, 27.4 percent in Finland (ranked No.1 in TAI), 13.9 percent in the US, 5.9 percent in China and 3.3 percent in Malaysia. Moreover, the Human Development Report 2004 indicates that only 25 percent of all students enrolled in tertiary institutions are studying maths, science and engineering programmes (cf. China’s 53 percent) while the number of researchers engaged in R&D in the country is a mere 157 per million of the population (cf. China’s 587). Between 1980-2000 the number of scientific papers from India included in the Science Citation Index fell from 14,987 to 12,227, whereas China’s grew from 924 to 22,061. Another warning to the effect that Indian science - if not technology education was heading for the rocks, and should have been heeded but wasn’t, was delivered almost three years ago by Dr. Goverdhan Mehta, an alumnus of Michigan and Ohio universities and currently director of IISc, interviewed in

43


EducationWorld (September 2001). “Unfortunately India’s scientific research capability — whether measured in the number of research papers published in journals or the number of patents registered — is slipping. This bodes ill for Indian society because without the constant development of science and technology capability through original research, there can’t be meaningful development,” said Mehta, in a prediction of the SJTU’s damning indictment of India’s over-respected higher education system. “There is an acute shortage of funds for all science courses. The annual budget of Lucknow Christian College is a mere Rs.2 crore. Ideally student tuition fees should be capable of meeting at least lab maintenance expenditure requirements. However the state government has ordered that the tuition fees remain frozen at the 1995 level. The sciences are practical and capital intensive subjects. What kind of practical demonstrations

and experiments are possible if labs are without modern equipment? Obviously in these circumstances there will be no worthwhile research. The other problem is outdated syllabi. If not every second year, science syllabi must be revised every five years. But we continue to teach what we learnt in our college days,” says Benjamin Pratap Masih, principal of Lucknow Christian College, which has 4,000 students on its rolls and was ranked No. 9 in the country by India Today (June 2, 2003) for the quality of science education it offers. And if science education across India is in the doldrums, policy failures in government - which has a monopolistic stranglehold over the higher education system - is the cause, rather than falling student interest. Several reputable colleges report that student enrollments in science faculties continue to rise. For instance, in Mumbai’s highlyrated St. Xavier’s College, for the first year of the bachelor’s degree in science, the number of applications received for just 360 seats this year was 1,917. “Over the past two years we have seen an increase in the number of students applying for

science degrees in this college. However there is a shift in the choice of science subjects. While earlier computer science and information technology were popular, now the focus is on life sciences, biochemistry and microbiology,” says Dr. Dionysia Coutinho, vice principal of the science faculty of St. Xavier’s, which boasts seven relatively wellequipped labs for undergrad and six for postgrad and doctoral students. Presidency College, Chennai, ranked India’s No.1 science college by India Today, also reports an increase in the number of applicants for enrollment in its science programmes. According to principal Dr. Ramanarayanan, an alumnus of IITMadras and Annamalai University, this year Presidency College received 250 applications for 40 seats in geology while 739 students contended for 48 seats in zoology. However some academics tend to be wary about according too much importance to rising enrollment statistics, given that increasing year-on-year enrollment is inevitable in all colleges and faculties because only 10.5 percent of India’s 18-24 years of age population is enrolled

April-2009


in institutions of higher education (cf. 72.6 percent in the US). “While we receive an overload of applications for our science programmes, the academic quality of applicants is declining. Most applicants enroll for the BSc programme only if they fail to secure admission into professional study programmes like engineering, medicine and business studies. Unfortunately the brightest and best are steering clear of science subjects which require long and arduous years of study, and at the end offer few job opportunities, most of which don’t pay well.” Comments, Fr. Ambrose Pinto, S.J, principal of Bangalore’s highlyrated St. Joseph’s College of Arts & Science, which has 2,500 undergrad and 200 postgrad students on its muster rolls.

the attitude of entitlement that currently prevails,” opines Dr. S. Bhattacharya, an alumnus of Delhi and Chicago universities, and currently director of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai, widely regarded as one of the country’s premier R&D institutions.

It’s also important to note that a greater proportion of India’s spending on R&D is concentrated in the high-end space, atomic energy and defence sectors while Indian industry is heavily dependent upon imported technologies.

In this India can take a cue from Russia, which is ending the divide between its prestigious academies of science, research institutes and classical universities where teaching is often considered more important than research, by merging the two into “centres of innovation”.

With the scientific community in India rarely involved in utilitarian ‘low-end’ research which could bring scientists fame, and with the profits from commercialisation of inventions and patents, careers in science are unattractive. “In India utilitarian research is almost non-existent. Hence unlike advanced nations, scientific research rarely benefits society. Indian R&D is ‘brahmanical’ research because nobody questions the relevance of high-end research. It’s time the scientific community began thinking about giving something back to society, instead of

April-2009

According to Bhattacharya, one of the major causes of science education losing its sheen is the artificial division between science research and teaching, which obstructs automatic contemporisation of syllabi. Indeed, most universities in India are just teaching shops with the faculty rarely engaged in any research work, unlike academics in the US, UK and Australia.

Fortunately the bells and whistles being sounded by academic leaders about declining research output and the diminishing interest of generation next in science education seems to have had some impact on bureaucrats and policy makers in the Central government’s department of science and technology. The department has designated 2004 as the ‘Year of scientific awareness’ and initiated several activities including inter-school debates, exhibitions, and seminars to attract the student community to science and research.

Likewise the Bangalore-based Indian Academy of Sciences (estb. 1934 by India’s sole science Nobel Laureate Sir C.V. Raman) which boasts 800 of the country’s top scientists and technologists as its members, has initiated various programmes to enhance the appeal of science education. They include publishing Resonance: Journal of Science Education; awarding summer fellowships to Plus Two students to work with fellows of the academy on research-oriented projects (150 fellowships are awarded every year); conducting refresher courses for school and

university science teachers, and organising guest lectures and seminars. Even the University Grants Commission — the country’s premier higher education funding agency (disbursement: Rs.3,000 crore in 2003-04) — has got into the act. Earlier this year the commission announced the setting up of four National Institutes

of Science (NISc) in Pune, Bhubaneshwar, Allahabad and Chennai to address the growing concern expressed by educationists, administrators, scientists and industrialists on the continuing decline of science education standards at all levels and the urgency to make available for the country an adequate number of well-qualified and motivated scientists and technologists. The proposal has generated considerable enthusiasm in Indian academia. “NISc, Chennai functions as an autonomous institute. But its steering committee will include the directors of Anna and Madras universities, besides agencies such as the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research and IIT-Madras. NISc, Chennai will integrate the roles of a teaching organisation and research establishment in frontier areas of science and cutting-edge technology. The institute will make an adequate number of highlyqualified scientists and technologists available for national development,” vows

TERPRETATION OF SCIENCE EDUCATION.”

Dr. E. Balaguru-swamy, vicechancellor of Anna University, Chennai. “It is unfortunate that the majority of schools across the country teach science in a boring and mechanical style allowing little room for original thinking and innovation. Most of the time of science students is spent on searching for ‘correct’ answers. This is a false interpretation of science education. Science is all about doing and learning even through mistakes. It’s vital that interest in science is kindled and nurtured through the school years because it’s from the school system that our future scientists and technologists will emerge. We must catch them

The major thrust to frontier science education and research has to come from the nation’s 317 universities and 14,000 plus colleges. With the Central government having set about fulfilling its three-decade old promise of increasing its annual education outlay from 3.2 to 6 percent of GDP, it needs to initiate a national drive to increase R&D spending from 0.7 to 1 percent of GDP as recommended by the National Committee on Science and Technology in 1973. Quite obviously this national drive requires the participation and cooperation of the corporate sector and industry which have hitherto tended to be averse to investing in science and technology research on a meaningful scale. The self-evident proposition that Indian industry will be the greatest beneficiary of investing in science and technology research, needs to be absorbed by the captains of Indian industry even as they get battle-ready in the rapidly crystallizing post-WTO global marketplace.

tudying computer program ming will most likely make you a computer programmer. And it’s pretty common knowledge that studying business qualifies you to work in the business world. But what does having a Bachelor of Science degree mean in relation to it all? And what are the career possibilities with a Bachelor of Science? To answer these questions, one must first understand exactly what a Bachelor of Science is: “The Bachelor of Science degree (BS) is distinguished by its scientific emphasis. Students who complete a BS may satisfy the degree requirements by taking courses that advance their understanding of the

use of scientific analysis, experimentation and the application of scientific principles and facts in solving problems; understanding of the crucial role of mathematical reasoning; analysis and techniques in comprehending problems in the natural or social sciences.” To put it simply, students who pursue a Bachelor of Science degree will spend much more time learning the mechanics of their trade, while those who pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree will spend much more time questioning why the science exists in the first place. Overall, a Bachelor of Science degree is designed to provide the strongest foundation

47


possible for a science-based career. Technical knowledge, problem solving, critical analysis, and computing are all common themes in earning a Bachelor of Science degree. Bear in mind, however, that a Bachelor of Science degree, while thorough, provides a very narrow scope of training. Whereas a Bachelor of Arts major may study a wide range of topics, a Bachelor of Science Major will typically pick one particular field—like mathematics, forensics, or chemistry— and study it at length. If you find yourself drawn to a certain area of study, and want to understand it on a tangible, literal level, then a Bachelor of Science degree is the best route. But what does this mean career-wise? Are Bachelor of Science degrees marketable? Overall, a Bachelor of Science degree opens up a large range of career possibilities. Large business, small industry, government, teaching, and research all offer career opportunities for those holding a

A DEGREE PROGRAM THAT BEST SUITS YOU IS DETERMINED BY MANY FACTORS. CAREER POSSIBILITIES , INTERESTS , AND

Bachelor of Science degree. In addition, Bachelor of Science graduates are also finding employment opportunities in non-science areas such as business, marketing, and writing. Whereas these areas were once limited to philosophical Bachelor of Arts majors, employers are now starting to hire Bachelor of Science majors to provide specific, technical insight into broad markets. In an age that values tangible, verifiable information, Bachelor of Science majors are becoming more and more valuable—and diverse. The key, then, is to decide what field interests you and THEN deciding what type of degree to pursue. Interested in becoming a doctor? Pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in biology—or some other acceptable field—is imperative. Failure to do so would leave a potential medical student ill prepared for medical school. Want to be a teacher? A Bachelor of Science degree would serve you well. Some other career positions that often require Bachelor of Science degrees are: Nurses, Doctors, Anesthesiologists, Biologists, Chemists, Forensic Scientists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Engineers, Academic Administrators, Criminologists, Computer Programmers, Lawyers and Teachers.

GOALS ALL PLAY STRONG ROLES . WHAT

ENCE DEGREE MEANS AND WHAT DOORS IT CAN OPEN, ONE CAN MAKE A MORE EDUCATED AND RELIABLE DECISION.

Obviously the amounts of jobs that can—or do—require a Bachelor of Science degree are almost limitless. The best way to determine what type of degree best fits your goals is to focus on what you want to do and in what capacity you want to do it. Then, talk to an academic advisor or a professional in that field to

determine what type of degree would serve your career goals best. But what if you are an aspiring artist with a passion for science? Does getting a Bachelor of Science degree hinder your chances at getting a job, say, as a writer? It depends. Say, for example, that your passion is biology. While getting a Bachelor of Science degree in biology isn’t the prime method to earning your way into the writing world, it can open doors into the ever-growing world of technical writing. By simply taking your passion—biology—and combining it with a talent—writing—you can sometimes prove yourself to be more marketable that someone with a Bachelor of Arts degree in writing, and no scientific experience. In the long run, choosing a degree program that best suits you is determined by many factors. Career possibilities, interests, and goals all play strong roles in the decision. By understanding what a Bachelor of Science degree means and what doors it can open, one can make a more educated and reliable decision. No matter what the case, choosing to get a Bachelor of Science degree guarantees that you will have a strong scientific understanding in whatever field you choose. And, with a world that is constantly evolving scientifically, the demand for workers with extensive knowledge in particular fields will only increase. From the sciences to computers to healthcare, career opportunities for Bachelor of Science degree-holders abound. The only hard part is deciding what to do!  (Sourced from www.exforsys.com)

Private sector/ Foreign Banks prefer to take MBAs, CAs, CFAs etc at junior positions through Campus recruitment and interviews. However, at the senior positions they opt for experienced bankers.

Professionals like MBAs, CAs and CFAs recruited by public sector banks can have higher salary. But same professionals recruited by private and foreign banks are given pay packages to the extent of about Rs 25000-30000 a month.

HOW TO PLAN YOUR CAREER? Choosing a career is a difficult matter, in the best of times. Add to this opinions of friends and parents, and the young person is caught up in a confusing situation where making a decision is almost impossible. We give here a model that can help young people to choose a career. Self-Assessment: The first step, involves gathering information about you. You should develop an understanding of yourself, including your values, interests, aptitudes, abilities, personal traits and desired life style. You must also become aware of the relationship between self and occupational choice. Academic and Career Options: In the second step, after you have completed your self-assessment, you must identify academic and career options available. This step allows you to investigate the world of work, narrow a general occupational direction into a specific one through an informed decision-making process. You will begin to identify potential careers, gather information about those careers, and match the career information with the results from your self-assessment. Competency Areas: In the third step, individuals evaluate occupational choices and gain practical experience through internships, co-operative education, relevant summer employment, volunteer work and campus activities. Occupational Choice: An initial occupational choice is made in Step four. Individuals prepare for and begin a job search, or apply to graduate or professional schools.
