The Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education is contemplating a major restructuring of under graduate and postgraduate courses in tune with the changing dynamics of the education sector and the competitive job market.
During a seminar ‘Restructuring of Undergraduate Courses and Combinations’ held at Acharya Nagarjuna University, Chairman of APSCHE, P. Jaya Prakash Rao cited the recent initiatives of APSCHE, such as developing a model curriculum at the UG courses during 2007-08.
“Educations should strike a balance between the basic subjects and applied courses,” Prof. Rao said.
He also emphasised on providing firm foundation in core subjects like Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, etc.
Vice-Chancellor of the University K.Viyanna Rao said that the main objective of the workshop was to identify the need to restructure the existing courses and combinations for the UG student, keeping in mind the advancements in Science & Technology and changing demands from the industry.
The Vice-Chancellor also recalled earlier attempts made by the UGC, APSCHE and other institutions towards making modifications to the common core structures introduced in the State of Andhra Pradesh.
Registrar of the University RRL Kantahm, Dean, CDC G.V. Chalam, Managing Director Effrontrics, Rama Krishna were also present.
