Issue blown out of proportion, says BU V-C

Issue blown out of proportion, says BU V-C

“More people die of cancer or dengue, than swine flu. I am not asking people to ignore the outbreak. But give it the importance that is needed, and not more,” said the Vice-chancellor, who is also a noted cardiologist.

The V-C was addressing a seminar organised by the Political Science Evaluators’ Association to look into examination reforms at the Maharani Lakshmi Ammanni (MLA) Ladies’ college in the city. “We have been trying to address issues of providing a foolproof examination system. In its first phase, the results have been excellent,” said Prabhu Dev.

Pointing towards the recent announcement of BU course results in 21 days, the V-C added that it was a collective effort by BU and the evaluators that needs to be congratulated.

He added that the University has already initiated a few programmes to better the quality of education in the City by mooting some ideas, including that of a four-year course in pure sciences. “Currently, we have got the permission to begin courses on Aerospace and Avionics at the University Vishveshwaraya College of Engineering (UVCE) and we have already approached a few industry players for the placements, apart from introducing two foreign language courses in the fourth year,” he said.
