Thumbs up PG medical course seats to go up

http://www.hindu.com/2010/03/27/stor...2765120400.htm

CHENNAI: The State government is planning to increase the number of seats in the postgraduate specialist medical courses this year, Health Secretary V.K. Subburaj said here on Thursday.

Speaking at a function organised to mark the 75th anniversary of the Barnard Institute of Radiology and Oncology at the Government General Hospital, he said that in the coming academic year medical colleges would admit 300 students in various specialty postgraduate courses.

The Health Department has also purchased Rs.10 crore worth digital X-rays for 10 medical institutions, including some taluka hospitals.

The delay in getting new equipment for the hospitals was not due to fund constraint but was a procedural issue, he said.

New equipment need suitable buildings and technicians had to be trained to adhere to proper safety procedures.

These procedural details had to be handled before the equipment is provided for use, Mr. Subburaj said, unveiling the statue of Captain T.W. Barnard. (Capt. Barnard had been chosen by the British government to set up the Institute of Radiology at the GH.)

His daughter Barbara King handed over the silver salver presented to her father on his retirement in 1940 from the hospital.

The salver has the signatures of doctors who worked in the Institute at that time. Ms.King recalled her father's work in India and returned the salver to Hospital Dean J. Mohanasundaram, saying the memento should remain with the hospital where her father had served for six years.

Books, souvenir

released

On the occasion, two books, Diagnostic Atlas of Paediatric Imaging and Radiology Physics, a textbook on radiology safety, and a souvenir of the department were launched.

Director of the Institute M. Prabakaran traced the history of the Institute and said the salver and the statue would be installed at the Institute building. Dr. Mohanasundaram and Tamil Nadu Medical Service Corporation's Managing Director Sandeep Saxena spoke.

Thumbs up Push for higher education

http://www.blonnet.com/2010/03/20/st...2052861700.htm

Chennai, March 19

The Tamil Nadu Government has come out with a clutch of Budget proposals for 2010-11 to provide a fillip to higher education.

The measures include plans to launch a number of new institutions and free education at the post-graduate level in Government arts and science colleges. The State Government has allocated Rs 1,751 crore to the Higher Education Department.

The Finance Minister, Mr K Anbazhagan, addressing the Assembly, said a new university for technology, the Anna University of Technology, will be set up with its headquarters in Madurai for engineering colleges in Madurai, Dindigul, Theni, Ramanathapuram and Sivaganga districts.

Four new Government arts and science colleges will come up in Pudukottai, Theni, Tiruvannamalai and Villupuram Districts and seven new polytechnic colleges will also be set up with Centre's assistance.

The Government will waive the tuition fees for all students of government arts and science colleges in postgraduate courses starting from the next academic year. A new medical college is to come up in Tiruvannamalai, he said.

The Minister also announced plans to upgrade infrastructure at a cost of Rs 93 crore for the new engineering colleges started in the last two years under the Anna Universities of Technology.

Facilities would also be upgraded in Government engineering and polytechnic colleges and government arts and science colleges, he said.

Chennai-born scientist honoured

http://www.hindu.com/2010/03/27/stor...2764242000.htm

Chennai-born Shankar Balasubramanian of Cambridge University has been named Innovator of the Year by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), Britain's leading agency for academic research and training in non-clinical life sciences.

He has been awarded £10,000 in recognition of his work on Solexa sequencing, the high speed genome sequencing technology. The award, now in its second year, is meant to encourage research that has practical impact on quality of life.

Professor Balasubramanian, who is also the winner of the Commercial Innovator of the Year category, said he was “delighted.”

“None of this would have happened without the support of the BBSRC. Their backing was essential for the blue skies research that gave rise to our original inventions. The continued funding of fundamental science by the BBSRC will be an essential part of future enterprises and ultimately, wealth creation.”

Professor Douglas Kell, BBSRC chief executive, said: “The BBSRC is pleased to be able to recognise and reward researchers who are making extraordinary progress in translating their research into applications that are of benefit socially and for UK Plc.”

Science and Innovation Minister Lord Drayson said turning research into innovation was crucial for future prosperity. “Finding practical applications for scientific discoveries is part of the joy of science. Today's winners make science exciting and relevant, with the potential to generate great benefits for our economy and society.”

Professor Balasubramanian, whose parents moved to Britain a year after he was born, graduated in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University and went on to do a PhD. He worked with David Klenerman of the department of chemistry, to invent low-cost and high-speed genome sequencing technology.

Thumbs up Madras univ to offer dual ranking system in colleges

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...ow/5733336.cms

CHENNAI: The University of Madras is planning to introduce two separate categories of ranks and medals — one for autonomous colleges and another for non-autonomous colleges from next academic year — to eliminate disparity between students.

Currently, students of both autonomous colleges and non-autonomous colleges are considered together to determine ranks and gold medals. Separate ranks and medals are being introduced because students of autonomous colleges and non-autonomous colleges were evaluated differently. “As evaluation is not common, we will ensure that ranks and medals are also separate for these type of institutions,” said University of Madras vice-chancellor of G Thiruvasagam at the senate meeting that was held on Saturday.

The university is also planning to eliminate the practice of handing out certificates to students by classifying them as first class holders and second class holders during convocation.

“Some of the colleges give away certificates to first class holders in a batch and second class holders in another batch during convocation. This is discriminatory and parents and students feel uncomfortable,” he added.

Thiruvasagam said : “The university will send out circulars in the first week of next month to all colleges urging them not to discriminate students based on their marks while distributing certificates.”

In another student-friendly measure, the senate approved Madras University Free Education Scheme and laid down the guidelines for selecting students. Thiruvasagam informed the Senate that the 10 students per college would be eligible for the scheme and beneficiaries would be selected in a centralised manner as colleges are not allowed to select. “We will ensure that women candidates are also selected to benefit from the free education scheme. A detailed guideline to select the students will be announced in the first week of next month.”

Detailing the future plans Thiruvasagam told the Senate that adequate and required faculty would be recruited within six months, two professors would be sent to recognised universities of USA to attain orientation about designing curriculum, each department of the university will get at least one smart class room, counselling centre will be made compulsory in all colleges and others. The senate also passed the budget of the university for 2010-11 in which charges exceeds receipts by a margin of Rs 16.32 crore.

Thumbs up VIT comes up with MTech course for IT co executives

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...ow/5724956.cms

VELLORE: In a first of its kind industry-academia tie-up in the country, information technology major Cognizant has joined hands with VIT University to offer an MTech degree programme in software development and management exclusively for its executives.

“A special curriculum appropriate to IT with emphasis on software engineering, particularly software programme management, has been developed jointly by faculty at Cognizant Academy and the VIT. Although Cognizant has worked with academic institutions, this is the first time we are sending our staff to attend a course specifically tailor-made by a university,” Cognizant vice-chairman Lakshmi Narayanan told TOI on Saturday.

The course will be a two-year full-time traditional master’s degree programme for managerial staff of the company. “I don’t believe there is any other course that combines development engineering and management aspects,” Lakshmi Narayanan said after participating in the VIT’s 10th University Day celebrations.

“We took a very long time to design the curriculum,” VIT University chancellor G Viswanathan said. According to VIT University pro-chancellor Sekar Viswanathan, the first batch of 25 students would get an opportunity to interact with experienced faculty at both VIT as well as Cognizant Academy.

Huge investments needed for education, says VIT Chancellor

http://www.hindu.com/2010/03/29/stor...2953970300.htm

VILLUPURAM: For achieving the ambitious target of raising the rate of access to higher education from 12 per cent to 30 per cent, as against the world average of 23 per cent, large investments are needed.

It can be accomplished only through joint efforts by the Centre, State governments and the private participants, said G. Viswanathan, Founder and Chancellor of VIT University, Vellore.

He was delivering the convocation address at the 10th Graduation Day of Theivanai Ammal College for Women here on Sunday. Mr. Viswanathan said the State governments were shying away from setting up new universities because it would take huge investment and vast stretches of land.

The State governments simply did not have the kind of funds required for starting new universities because all their resources were exhausted in promoting primary and school education, he said.

In 2007, the National Knowledge Commission headed by Sam Pitroda had suggested setting up of 1,500 new universities, but in the past three years only 50 had come up.

For the proposed three Central universities, the government had earmarked an amount of Rs.3,300 crore, but comparing with the scale of investments being made by China on education it would pale into insignificance. In China, even a university of moderate size would have tens of thousands of students on its rolls, with an annual budget of Rs.2,000 crore to Rs.3,000 crore.

Mr. Viswanathan pointed out that five decades ago the Dr. Radhakrishnan Committee recommended 6 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product to be invested on education but even now it stood at only 3.5 per cent.

If the avowed objectives of “expansion, inclusion and excellence” were to be achieved, the so-called “mushrooming” of colleges was important, with stress on adequate laboratory facilities and qualified faculty.

Mr. Viswanathan lauded the college management for providing women access to higher education in an educationally and economically backward area.

The Chancellor said that from the next academic year VIT University would award a gold medal to the best outgoing student of Theivanai Ammal College for Women.

S. Senthil Kumar, College Secretary, and Principal Kasturibai Dhanasekaran, also spoke. On the occasion, 481 graduates received their scrolls, including three university gold medallists.

Empowering youth through entrepreneurship


HARNESSING POTENTIAL: The Institute of Entrepreneurship and Career Development building on Bharathidasan University campus in Tiruchi.

Starting from scratch since its inception during mid-2004, the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (IECD), Bharathidasan University, has come a long way, filling the serious gap in the university educational system by organising entrepreneurship and career development programmes/courses and entrepreneurship sensitisation camps for various target groups.

It has been designing and operating various skills-based and career-oriented short-term certificate courses, diploma, advanced diploma and PG diploma courses for student and non-student school dropouts and unemployed youth. So far, the institute has trained 14,567 candidates: 7,187 through EDPs; 4,398 through short-term courses at the campus; and 2,982 through the off-campus mode. Of them, 2,576 candidates availed themselves of the benefit of scholarship.

Employment opportunities were created for 2,339 students of affiliated colleges, including 1,448 girl students, through campus interviews; 2,476 non-student youths through the on-campus programmes, and 2,561 youths through the off-campus programme. Currently, 1,007 students, including 557 girls, are undergoing the various certificate and diploma programmes. As many as 6,778 students have been enrolled under the SUITS programme. The institute has trained 7,187 persons, mostly belonging to weaker sections of the society, in entrepreneurship development, and has shaped 64 trainees as young entrepreneurs in service sector.

Among the unique programmes are the trainings offered in basic computer operations to deaf and dumb, and instrumental music (keyboard and guitar) to the visually-impaired. Roping in MNCs, the IECD has been at the helm of organising campus interviews for undergraduate and postgraduate students of the university and affiliated colleges.

Alongside offering Skill-based and Career Oriented Continuing Education Programmes through industrial/ institutional tie-ups, leading to Certificate /Diploma / Advanced Diploma / PG Diploma, the IECD has established 87 Entrepreneurship Development Cells (EDC) at college level, conducted coaching classes to Group I and II aspirants among rural youths, evolved skill-based electives (41 Credit Courses under CBCS) to UG Students of Tamil Nadu, initiated the School - University - Industry - Tie-ups Scheme (SUITS) for school children in Tamil Nadu, and offered specialised Skill /Vocation Based Certificate Programme to Rural Artisans.

The IECD has received through the university Rs. 14 lakh from the University Grants Commission for conducting certificate / Diploma /Advanced Diploma in e-Commerce and Entrepreneurship and Career Development during XI Plan period. At present, 85 UG Students of affiliated colleges are undergoing the courses.

The institute has extended its reach to Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh as well. Over 7,700 students are benefited by the IECD's courses. The institute has been acting both as entrepreneurial training and consultancy institute for empowering the youth, according to K. Parthasarathy, Professor and Head, Department of Life-Long Learning, who has been holding full-additional charge of the IECD since its inception.

The IECD was conceptualised and established as per the UGC's X Plan guidelines on Adult, Continuing Education, Extension and Field Outreach, with the philosophy of continuing education as part of the total education programme of the institution; integration between formal and non-formal education and out-of-school learning process; reaching out to the larger sections of adults through the university system and specially deprived groups for the purpose of equalisation of educational opportunities; and introduction of courses offered on campus, off-campus, online and through e-learning.

With an initial university funding of Rs. 10 lakh, the institute, functioning as an autonomous entity, has so far returned a whopping amount exceeding Rs. 2 crore to the university by operating the plethora of programmes. The target group for various courses includes student and non-student youth, current students of schools and colleges, school dropouts, employees, SHG members, senior citizens and junior citizens of the society and physically-challenged persons above the age of 5 years to over 80 years, said Dr. Parthasarathy.

K. Subburaj, Chairman and Executive Director, Cethar Vessels Private Limited, has agreed in principle to provide grant-in-aid of Rs.2.5 crore at an average of Rs. 25 lakh per annum for 10 years continuously for training and making the youth skilled in service sector and also making them as entrepreneurs through the establishment of Lab for Innovation / Skill Development at the Khajamalai Campus. The preparatory work is in progress, Dr. Parthasarathy said.

The institute has been empanelled by the Ministry of Micro and Small Enterprises, Government of India, under Rajiv Gandhi Udyami Mitra Yojana Scheme, for imparting training and playing a lead role for the socio-economic development of youth in general and unemployed youth in particular for making them entrepreneurs with the financial support of the Government of India.

Thumbs up Centre nod to knowledge network

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/chenn...ge-network-544

April 4: The Union cabinet has cleared a proposal to interlink all medical and agricultural universities, technical institutions and research libraries under the national knowledge network at a cost of Rs 6,000 crore over a period of five years, Union minister for communications and IT, A Raja said.
Laying the foundation stone of the Software Technology Park of India at Kalapet at a cost of Rs 20 crore on Sunday, Mr Raja said the national knowledge network would enable students of universities and research institutions to have interaction, share knowledge, collaborative research and augment their skills. The STPI at Puducherry would also be linked with the national knowledge network.
“Although the country has policies for telecom and water, we don't have a separate policy in the information technology sector. There is a need for evolving such a network. The Union government had implemented a semiconductor investment policy and a MoU was signed at a cost of Rs 2.60 crore,” Mr Raja said. He also said that Ta-mil Nadu was the first state in the country to have come out with an IT policy.

Thumbs up Facebook links varsity, students

Slowly and steadily, Indian higher education campuses are upgrading their facilities to world standards.

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/chenn...y-students-542

April 4: From being a platform for interaction and sharing views, social networking sites are transforming the way of communication between the administration and students at VIT University.
The VIT administration has been using social networking site Facebook to establish a friendly atmosphere among students, parents, alumni and faculties, besides encouraging students to come up with new ideas to run the administration effectively.
Launched on February 7, the VIT page on Facebook got 9,000 users in two months. “We have created our own page in the social network site to reach the students,” said university pro-chancellor Sekar Visw-anathan, who spends an hour everyday to go through the page.
The university has provided BlackBerry phones to 35 faculty members. “Nearly 15 students a day post their problems and also solutions for them on the site. The faculties also respond to the queries in two seconds using the modern gadget," said Mr Sekar.
The university has also created a channel, VIT Social, on YouTube. Important lectures are uploaded on the channel. It also plans to register on Twitter soon. “One of our students posted his problem in getting visa to China on Facebook. Within five minutes, I was able to solve the problem while I was travelling in a high-speed train in China on March 18,” he recollects.
Besides this, the social networking site helps students to update the happenings inside and outside the university campus. “I posted the idea of having an exclusive page for the university on Facebook. The pro-chancellor immediately asked me to go ahead with it,” said second-year B.Tech (Computer Science) student Rohit Mishra who is administering the VIT page. It also helps get redressal quickly, said III-year Mechanical and Energy department student Saurabh Jain.

TN education outlay goes up

Source: Hindu
http://www.hindu.com/2010/04/17/stor...1762980500.htm

Quote:
School education infrastructure in the State will get a huge fillip with the allocation of over Rs.10,000 crore for the school education sector.
Detailing the schemes and plans for the last year of the five-year term of the DMK government, School Education Minister Thangam Thennarasu said this was the highest allocation ever for school education. The government was committed to providing an equitable system of education to all in the State.

“We want to make available the same kind of education to all…Rome was not built in a day. We are working on the infrastructure in all schools so that a few years down the line all schools will have good infrastructure.”

......................
In all, the government allocated Rs.39,643 crore for school education from 2006 to 2011. This was 88 per cent more than the allocation in the previous five years, he said. Between 2006-2010, as many as 341 primary schools were opened, 2,408 were upgraded middle schools, 445 middle schools were upgraded high schools and 435 high schools upgraded higher secondary schools. The Minister said the first step towards an equitable system of education was making uniform syllabus. This would be done at Class 1 and 6 this coming academic year. In all other classes, it would be introduced the next year.

...... The Minister said that at the primary level, dropout rate had come down from 3.81 per cent in 2005-06 to 1.02 per cent in 2008-09. At the upper primary level, the dropout rate declined from 7.58 per cent in 2005-06 to 1.88 per cent in 2008-09. Tamil Nadu is in the fifth place in the education development index as per the research findings by the National University of Educational Planning and Administration.

Foreign degree still edges home draw

http://www.deccanchronicle.com/chenn...-home-draw-664

April 19: Several deemed universities in Tamil Nadu claim they have come of age, in the global perspective — offering state-of-the-art facilities in classrooms, libraries and laboratories. Besides, their campus-interviews for jobs in MNCs and top-class corporates have been fruitful for students. Has all this slowed down the traffic of students seeking education abroad?
No, say foreign missions and Indian students, citing various reasons.

Speaking to the Deccan Chronicle on Monday, Ms Padmavathi Chandramouli, student counsellor, DAAD-German Academic Exchange Service, said we can positively say as far as student visa in the southern region is concerned, compared to 2007, 2008 saw a near 10 per cent increase; compared to 2008, there was about 40 per cent increase in student visas issued from the southern region to Germany in 2009.

Based on these factors, we can definitely say that more Indian students are going to Germany for higher studies and research in the past two years and also that interest to pursue higher studies and research in German universities is increasing sharply, she added.

Except for a few deemed universities which were doing good even before they were deemed, I don't think most of them have improved even in recent times.
