He said that the university is mulling over constructing a pond on a land abutting the administrative building.


The convocation will be held on February 26. Subhra Suresh, president, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, will deliver the convocation address, he added.

Theses in Kannada

Mangalore University Vice Chancellor Prof K Byrappa said that several research scholars in Humanities and Management faculties are showing keen interest in submitting their theses in Kannada.

He felt that the reason may be inability of an anti-plagiarism software installed by the university to scan through theses in Kannada language. The university has received hundreds of requests from research scholars to present their research findings in Kannada, he stated.

Earlier, UGC and the Karnataka State Higher Education Council had taken note of plagiarism in research work. They had directed all the universities to install anti-plagiarism software.

In the meeting, Nandini Bharath Patel, an MEd student and a member of the Academic Council, said that the quality of research work has been affected due to plagiarism.
