VTU adopts online evaluation of PhD thesis

Raju Gavali, Belgaum, April 8, 2013, DHNS: 2:29 IST
The Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) has become the first varsity in the country to utilise technological advancements in sending doctoral thesis (PhD) for evaluation to jurists, foreign as well as Indian, and give results in two to three months.

The VTU Vice Chancellor H Maheshappa told Deccan Herald that evaluating thesis and awarding doctorates to research scholars had always been a cumbersome job. But lately, the varsity has been using advanced technology to evaluate thesis of scholars.

Thesis submitted by research scholars are judged by their guide, Indian jury and foreign jury. Now, soft copies of thesis are uploaded and sent to jury directly. It has put an end to the age-old and time consuming practice of sending the hardcopies for evaluation, he said.
“To ensure quality of research works, the VTU is getting thesis evaluated by foreign jury. It is the first varsity in the country to go for evaluation of thesis by foreign jury. Their concurrence is taken before awarding doctorate to the scholars,” Dr Maheshappa stated.

The new system has brought down the time required to complete the evaluation process. Results of doctorates are now being declared in two to three months, he said. Along with doctorates, VTU has also adopted online evaluation for the thesis of Master of Technology (MTech) and Master of Science (Engineering) courses, he said.

“VTU is the first to adopt digital evaluation system of answer scripts for undergraduate and postgraduate courses and online question paper delivery to all 194 engineering colleges across the state. It has adopted end-to-end solution in its examination process,” he said.

Automation would be adopted from the stage of admission of the candidate to the announcement of results. Attendance and internal assessment marks could be obtained online. Eligible candidates will get hall tickets printed online in the college itself, Dr Maheshappa said.
