The Univer­sity Grants Com­mis­sion (UGC) has asked uni­ver­si­ties to re­vise their syl­labus of all the pro­grammes at least once in three years.

This move will com­ple­ment the in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary na­ture of de­gree pro­grams avail­able in many uni­ver­si­ties across the coun­try and also keep stu­dents abreast with the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in their field of ed­u­ca­tion.

“In a world chang­ing at break­neck speed, any con­cep­tual in­no­va­tions and tech­no­log­i­cal break­throughs are sub­jected to fur­ther al­ter­ca­tions and upgra­da­tion. Reg­u­lar re­vi­sion of aca­demic cur­ric­ula is the only ef­fi­cient way to ad­dress the grow­ing in­dus­try de­mands,” states the cir­cu­lar re­leased by UGC ear­lier this week. It fur­ther stresses on the fact that the ul­ti­mate goal of all uni­ver­si­ties and col­leges should be to make their stu­dents more em­ploy­able af­ter ed­u­ca­tion.

The de­ci­sion to ask uni­ver­si­ties to re­vise syl­labi more of­ten comes af­ter a meet­ing of se­nior of­fi­cials from the ed­u­ca­tion and so­cial de­vel­op­ment de­part­ments with PM Naren­dra Modi.
