Equipped to reach the goals

The CMR group of institutions will soon be accorded the University status. The management of the group has been working towards realising this dream and chalking out plans to revamp the curriculum and spruce up the infrastructure. The management has also joined hands with the best IT companies to rope in industry personnel to hold sessions and contribute their knowledge to the curriculum.

The institution has been abiding by the motto ‘Create the Future’. KR Jaydeep,
pro-chancellor of the University, says, “The faculty will go by the continuous and diverse evaluation criteria with embedded programmes in creativity and innovation. We hope to nurture and tap into all facets of a student’s personality.”

He adds, “Through our collaborative programmes with international universities and industries, we want to churn out product leaders and people who can contribute productively to the economy.”

Jaydeep says that the curriculum will be structured in such a way that it eliminates the knowledge gap in the market.

   “The students affiliated to our university will be ready to take on any task
in the job market and the employer won’t have to train them again to adapt to the latest market trends,” he adds.

He also informs that the new campus will have world class facilities, including
digital screens.

   “We also hope to design the classrooms in such a way that they are more interactive and not the traditional way where the teacher faces the students,” he says.

The symbol of CMR University is a swan and KC Ramamurthy, chairman, CMR Group of Institutions explains, “The swan is the vehicle of goddess Saraswathi. It has the ability to distinguish good from bad and takes only what is good.

This is what we want to do. We want to absorb only the good,” he says.

He says that their vision is to have a curriculum that prepares young boys and girls for the real world.

   “We want to use technology to provide students with the best of industry knowledge, stray away from the conventional mode of learning and give them an exposure
to national and international standards in education,” he adds.

KC Sabitha Ramamurthy, chancellor of the University, says that she is prepared to take on all the challenges. “The Indian educational system has stood the test of time. The need of the hour is to provide hands-on knowledge to students and we hope to bring in programmes and structure our syllabi in a way that it caters to this need,” she states.

Sharing his perspective, Anand K Joshi, the vice-chancellor of the University, feels that the curriculum will tap the full potential of the students.

   “We have already been collaborated with a couple of leading multi-national companies to contribute their knowledge to the curriculum. We will soon sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with a few foreign universities. Our primary focus is to draw up a programme that is skill-based and application-oriented,” he adds.
