Message From The Vice-Chancellor, Bharathidasan University
Established by the Tamil Nadu Government by Act No. 2 of 1982, Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, has grown with an excellent research base, offering PG and research programmes through 35 and odd Schools, Departments and Research Centres. The University is accredited with "A" Grade by NAAC and is a member of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) and Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU). During the past 25 years, the University has made tremendous contribution towards teaching and research.
The faculty of the University includes winners of prestigious honors like, Bhatnagar Award, Hari Om Trust Award, Meghnad Saha Award, UNESCO Award, Sahitya Akademi Award, TANSA Award, National Environmental Science Academy award and Indian National Science Congress Award.
Many members of the faculty have received fellowships like FNA, FNASc, FASc, FIAT, FPTCA, FLS, FAEB and PRES. The University has acquired SAP-DR8 Level ll for Chemistry Department, DST-FIST for Animal Science, Chemistry, Physics, Plant Science Departments and DST-IRHPA for the Centre for Non-linear Dynamics. The University offers a wide range of contemporary, emerging and career oriented programs through the 1 20 affiliated colleges.
In consonance with the current view that Institutions of Higher Learning should open out to global competition and move towards self-sustenance through external cash flow; an independent unit called Bharathidasan University Business Development Centre (BDU-BDC) was established.
In the last three decades, significant changes have been brought into Research and Development in Universities of India. Not only did the Universities look for greater generation of funding resources to sustain their research activities as funding from Government sources have become significantly dwindled, but also the Universities have been motivated towards the service of the society around them. Consequently, the researchers have been forced to "sell" their knowledge and research outputs through consultancy and transfer of technologies, which they have developed, to the needy industries. At the same time, this provided an avenue for taking scientific developments to the society. Since the individual scientists did not have the required time and expertise to facilitate the above activities, an organizational set-up was mandatorily required. In Bharathidasan University this was taken care by the Business Development Centre (BDU-BDC) since 2002.
The Centre has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with several specialized institutions / Hospitals / Colleges to offer various off-campus courses
I extend my best wishes to all students studying through this Centre of Bharathidasan University and hope that the education they acquire will help them in their profession to achieve their goals.
Dr. K. MEENA.
Vice-Chancellor, Bharathidasan University
