Reorientation programme for chemistry assistant professors begin in city

In his address at the 5th Refresher Course in Materials Science organised at the UGC-Academic Staff College here, he opined the country lagged behind the developed countries in the research and educational standards.

The Indian students and scientists are yet to unleash their potential to come out with quality research which gets worldwide acclaim through international awards. “The research in western countries are more advanced and will have impact worldwide,” he remarked.

The United States ranked first in the world in having a pool of talent, according to a survey. The survey report says India ranked 40th in the list, while China was in the 29th position in the list of 60 countries. A majority of world’s talented researchers, including Indians are in United States as the western country has provided a good environment and infrastructure required for the researchers.

“Chandrashekar was the first to win the Nobel for Physics for United States for his research. Indian scientists and researchers have excelled in various parts of the World. The teachers have a responsibility to raise the education standards in the universities and colleges. The academicians should update their knowledge on the latest research and technologies and impart it to students. The internet and online media provides information on new research done worldwide,” he said.

Technology

The teachers should make use of the technology and read new publications. The country has the capability to achieve bigger targets provided the countrymen do some original thinking,” he added.

About 80 assistant professors from various colleges and universities are attending the course.  D Channegowda, Chairman, Department of Chemistry, University of Mysore, Prof G Venkatesh Kumar, Director, UGC-Academic Staff College and others were present.
