Deputy chief minister and education minister Kadiyam Srihari has urged vice-chancellors of universities to take steps to improve educational standards and ensure that TS universities find place in top 100 universities globally in the near future.
“The government is planning to address infrastructure gap and staff crunch in all universities soon. All VCs should come up with a detailed report about the funds and other support needed from the government to address the problems of universities. Universities have been severely neglected in the past. Now the onus is on the new VCs to streamline them and turn them into portals of knowledge,” said Srihari speaking at the VCs conference held here on Tuesday.
Srihari took stock of the affairs of the 11 universities in the state at the conference and the meeting assumed significance as it is being held for the first time after full time VCs have appointed to all universities recently.
“There is a need to completely overhaul of the university education. They are teaching same courses for the past 60-70 years. There is need for introduction of new courses keeping in view the requirements of job market. What is the use, if universities are producing graduates and post-graduates, without any employability skills?” he asked.The minister was particularly disappointed the way universities are introducing new courses, with permutations and combinations of old subjects and passing them as restructured and new courses.
Srihari also stressed on bringing reforms in Ph.D admission process and improving quality of research in the universities.Evolving a common admission procedure for all universities in conventional courses, introduction of executive councils, setting up of surveillance cameras and biometric attendance system in all universities were also discussed.
