In Karnataka, Visvesvaraya Technological University will provide a BSc course in 66 engineering colleges

Visvesvaraya Technological Institution (VTU), the state’s only technological university, has opted to offer general Bsc science degree courses beginning this academic year in an effort to rekindle interest in basic science.

Based on the infrastructure and availability of faculty, the university has already identified 66 affiliated institutions, both public and private, that will provide BSc courses. The plan is currently being considered by the state government.

According to Prof Karisiddappa, Vice Chancellor of the University, it is a four-year BSc (Honours) curriculum with an exit option that follows the National Education Policy (NEP) requirements. Following the suggestion of Higher Education Minister Dr. C N Ashwath Narayan, the university has decided to begin the courses.

“During a meeting a few months back, the minister proposed this notion. We’ve presented it to the executive council as well as the academic senate. Following the approval, we have requested applications from interested colleges,’ Karisiddappa explained.

The university, on the other hand, has chosen the colleges to offer BSc degrees based on facilities availability, among other factors. ‘Our engineering colleges have the best physics and maths faculties.’ We will be able to make better use of their knowledge and experience as a result of this. This year, we’ve picked 66 colleges and are awaiting government approval,’ said Prof Karisiddappa.

As a result, engineering colleges will become multi-disciplinary, and students pursuing BSc degrees at these institutions will be able to pursue open electives such as computer science and artificial intelligence (AI).

The University has also requested that the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) begin the admissions process based on the Karnataka Common Entrance Test 2021 results. ‘Those who have written the KCET will be given preference, and seat allocation will be done through KEA.’ We will let non-KCET students if seats remain vacant…,’ said the vice chancellor.

VTU will give the certificate as an allied science degree course, with a 60-person intake per college.
