The University of Pune (UoP) has decided to introduce post-std XII integrated degree and postgraduate courses in science and arts streams from the academic year 2013-14. The UoP management council, which is the top decision-making body in the university, passed a resolution to this effect at its meeting earlier this week, for introducing these courses on the varsity campus. UoP vice-chancellor Wasudev Gade told TOI on Thursday, 12th July, 2012 The move forms part of the universitys initiatives under the 12th Five Year Plan of the University Grants Commission (UGC). We are sending a proposal for these new courses to the UGC.
Gade said, the post-std XII degree course in science will be known as Bachelor of Science (BS) integrated and it will be of four-year duration. The first three years will be for science studies and the fourth year for projects. It will also have interdisciplinary elements. He added: The post-std XII postgraduate course in science will be known as Master of Science (MS) integrated and it will be of five year duration, he said. The first three years of this course will involve both physical and biological science studies while the last two years will involve specialisation in different branches of science.
The courses for arts (BA / MA integrated) will also operate along the similar lines and will also involve inter-disciplinary elements. The new courses will be offered through the faculty of science and arts respectively, Gade said. The varsitys plan assumes significance considering that the UoP campus has, so far, remained confined to departments and institutions offering only postgraduate studies. Barely any integrated course leading to a postgraduate qualification after std XII is being offered on the campus. The notable exception being the five-year M.Tech biotechnology integrated course offered by the UoPs Institute of Bioinformatics and Biotechnology.
