Note: At U.G. level for I and II year students (a) English is compulsory and (b) They have to choose one of the languages as their second language out of the six languages available : Additional English, Marathi, Hindi, Sanskrit, Russian and Pali.


  1. To what extent are the programme options career oriented?


52%
B.A. – Functional English and Geography are specially carrier oriented.

B.Sc – Microbiology, Fishery science, Analytical Chemistry, Electronics and Computer Science are also career oriented.

B.C.A. and B.C.S. are totally career oriented courses, so also B.Com.

Traditional courses are also useful as minimum requirement for getting jobs now-a-days is graduation. Those who want to study further are also benefited. Thus, almost all the courses run by our college create job opportunities in their fields.


  1. Do students have flexibility to pursue a programme with reference to :

i. Time frame


This is decided by the University.
ii. Horizontal mobility
This is also decided by the University.
iii. Elective options
Yes

Students are permitted to opt for any combination of subjects as mentioned in point number 01 above.
iv. Non-core options
No


  1. How are the college mission and goals, if any (other than the general transmission and generation of knowledge), reflected through the curricula?




      1. College mission and goals are reflected through curricula. Such courses are available in all the faculties e.g. in the Arts Faculty subjects such as Sociology, History, Political Science make students aware of our traditional values / contemporary problems. In the Commerce Faculty, subjects like Enterepreneurship, Taxation, Secretarial Practice etc. can give students confidence to start their own business / enterprise. In the Science Faculty, one of the objectives of the institution viz. Development of Scientific Temper is clearly reflected through the curricula. Another of the objective of the institution – to create / have job oriented courses is clearly reflected through BCA / BCS curricula. It is, therefore, safe to say that many of the aims and objectives of the institution are reflected through the curricula designed by the University.




  1. Is there any mechanism to obtain feedback from academic peers and employers on the teaching programmes?

Yes No


If yes, how is the feedback used in the initiation, review and redesigning of teaching programmes? Give details.
We have informal feedback mechanism in which suggestions made by our teachers are discussed with the seventeen teaches from our college, who represent various academic / managerial bodies of the university. The informal suggestions made by our teachers centre on the needs of the student community and changing times. These suggestions are communicated to the university through these seventeen members, so as to make teaching / learning process more meaningful and useful to the students of this region. (For a list of these seventeen members kindly refer to Criterion II: Teaching-Learning and Evaluation, Point No. 20)


  1. How long does it take for the college to introduce a new programme within the present university system?


About one year.


  1. Has the college introduced any new courses inspite of delay in university processes?

Yes No


If yes, give details.
     


  1. Give details of college-industry-neighbourhood networking, if any.


Functional English as well as B.Sc / B.Com / B.A. / B.C.A. / B.C.S. students sometimes visit, with their teachers, industries, newspaper offices, T.V. Centre (EMRC Hyderabad), Hotels, Hospitals in and outside Latur. For some of the courses at U.G. level and for P.G. courses one project is compulsory as partial fulfilment of their studies. As a result, our students visit above mentioned places and develope good rapport with the industrial and business establishment and prepare their project reports. Some of our former teachers and students also have industries in the Industrial Area of Latur. They whole heartedly cooperated with us. In addition to this, our NSS and two NCC units, over the years, are maintaining cordial relations with the neighbouring villages. This has helped to maintain a favourable equation with the industry / business establishment and the common masses.


  1. Furnish details on the following aspects of curriculum design :

i. Innovation such as modular curricula:


Through participation and organisation in workshop for curricular development. For example, we organised Workshop on Emerging Trends and Problems in Higher Education on 29, 30 November, 1997 and State Level Conference on Curriculum Development in Physics on 2,3 May 2002. The teachers of Microbiology, Botany, Physics, Russian Language and Mathematics participated in the Workshop / Seminar on curriculum development. Many of our teachers, as mentioned earlier, serve as Chairman / Member / Expert of BOS in various subjects.
ii. Interdisciplinary/ multidisciplinary approach :
Courses such as B.Sc, B.Com, B.C.A. B.C.S. are basically interdisciplinary. So, teachers of the Departments of Mathematics, Electronics, Languages, Economics engage classes for various courses. In addition to this, teachers belonging to different Departments are invited to deliver lectures.


  1. Any other highlights :




  1. There is harmony among all the teaching and non-teaching staff. For all functions of the college, staff and students work in a team spirit. From time to time the Staff Academy arranges lectures by our teachers to inculcate the spirit of interdisciplinary approach.


The College has also organised Seminar / Symposium on

    1. Uses of Microorganism in Biotechnology” on December 9, 1990.

    2. Recent trends in Biotechnology for rural and industrial development” on March 20,21, 1999.

    3. Assessment of Environmental Pollution due to Industrialisation and Urbanisation” on February 10,11, 2001.

    4. Review of constitution of India” on 10,11,12 February, 2001.
