Boards of Study of 28 Departments held at KMV-A Historic Moment

Jalandhar 23 February (Gurkirat Singh)- In KMV-The Autonomous and Heritage Institution, meetings of Boards of Study of 28 departments were conducted with the objective formation of new syllabi as well as revision of the syllabi of various courses for the upcoming academic session. Autonomy has enabled Kanya Maha Vidyalaya to redesign, reframe, restructure and revamp the syllabi keeping in view the needs of the 21st century and its requirements. Throwing light on this, Prof. Atima Sharma Dwivedi, Principal KMV averred that the Board of Studies of each subject comprised erudite scholars from the acclaimed universities and institutes across the nation. Being the first women institution of Punjab to attain Autonomy, KMV has also taken lead in restructuring and revising the syllabi and introducing new programmes of contemporary and global relevance. Practical training of students and suitability of syllabi of International Universities was kept in focus while designing these syllabi. KMV has redesigned the courses to provide wider choice with innovative job-oriented programmes. As many as 90 highly erudite and experienced academicians provided expert guidance in redesigning the syllabi of all faculties. Professors from Jawahar Lal Nehru University, Delhi, SRCC, Delhi, Kurukshetra University, Punjab University, Punjabi University, Guru Nanak Dev University & Delhi University among others provided their valuable opinions and inputs after giving the syllabus of each subject, class and course a keen perusal. International syllabi was kept in mind so that it becomes easy for students to shift to foreign countries and jobs. Autonomy has also empowered KMV to provide wider choice in courses. The need of the hour is to have job-oriented and skill development courses. It is for this reason that Kanya Maha Vidyalaya has not only revised old syllabi but has also taken the colossal and unprecedented initiative of introducing as many as 22 new courses which include 9 PG courses. Prof. Atima Sharma Dwivedi also congratulated all the faculty members of KMV for having contributed to the noble cause of higher education through their consistent and concrete endeavour of including sustainable, substantial and value-oriented areas of study in the syllabi of various subjects. She also expressed her gratitude to the intelligentsia-‘the veritable think tanks’ for having spared their valuable time to act as beacon lights for KMV at this historic juncture.
