Sambalpur university starts three new PG courses

Following report is from TOI:

BHUBANESWAR: Sambalpur University has experienced a mixed bag this academic year as far as new courses are concerned. While its post graduate course on rural management, introduced this year, failed to appeal to students, forcing the authorities to put the course in abeyance, two new courses on masters in Hindi and masters in performing art (MPA) have found ready takers.

The University had introduced rural management, a self-finance course in this education year with a sanctioned strength of 20 students. There were only 14 applicants of which 11 took admission. Since this is a self-financing course, the University declined to run it with only 11 students. “We had to put the course in abeyance for this education year because of poor response from students. However, we will release advertisements again for the course in the coming year,” said Sukadeb Naik, chairman of PG council. He said that the 11 students were asked either to take admission in sociology or take back the admission fee.

University registrar Sudhansu Sekhar Rath said the rural management course was designed as per Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) and it is not known why there were so few applications. “The course modules were of good standard. We kept the course under sociology department to maintain quality,” said Rath. He suspected less publicity about the course could be the reason of low student interest.

Other two new courses by the university — masters in Hindi and masters in performing art (MPA) – have, however, received good response from students. These two courses are regular ones. “This education year while for Hindi we received 54 applications against sanctioned strength of 16 students, for MPA, we received 23 forms against strength of 16 each for dance and drama section. So the ratio between number of application and students strength is quite high in Hindi department. We are hopeful that MPA will also pick up,” said Naik.

He said because of MPA the university won’t have to hire artistes from outside for participating in different cultural shows on the campus. “Earlier we were required to hire performers by paying them good money for participating in various cultural shows. Not anymore, thanks to MPA,” Naik said.

Following report is from TOI:

BHUBANESWAR: The draft plan for transforming VSS Medical College and Hospital,Burla, into a unitary university through an actof the state assembly is almost final.

The local MP, two MLAs, seven persons of eminence having special knowledge in technical education, principals of two other medical colleges and two medical teachers would be nominated members of the governing body.

The draft proposes that the institute director would be the chief administrative authority of the institute and chairman of its academic board. The board will be responsible to ensure standard of education and research in the university.

Established in 1959, the 850-bed state-owned medical college offers undergraduate and postgraduate education in medicine and surgery, besides pharmacy and nursing courses. It has 22 clinical departments and caters to 12 districts of western Orissa, four districts of Chhattisgarhand two districts of Jharkhand for tertiary patient care.
