As of now the university has 18 schools in different disciplines
Madurai Kamaraj University proposes to start three more schools to meet the growing educational needs of students, said Vice-Chancellor Kalyani Mathivanan on Saturday.
Talking to the press after taking part in a constituent college function at Kottur village near here, she said that a school each for youth empowerment, information technology and linguistic communication would be established soon.
The university now has 18 schools in different disciplines.
Two five-year integrated courses — post graduate courses in electronic media and in tourism and hotel management — were introduced in its constituent colleges this year. Students who have completed plus two could join these job-oriented courses directly, the Vice-Chancellor said.
The university was now focusing on reforming its distance education courses to enhance quality and to make them job-oriented. Work on formulating course structure and syllabus was at the final stage. On completion of the process, the university would send a report to the government for approval, Ms. Mathivanan added.
The university had also proposed to improve infrastructure facilities at its constituent colleges. The Madurai Kamaraj University Arts and Science College at Kottur in Theni district would have its own building soon.
At present, the college functioned from rented buildings in three places.
They would be brought under one roof after construction of a new building, the Vice-Chancellor said.
