New Delhi: Laudingthe successful launch of Chandrayaan-2, the HRD Ministry on Monday encouraged students to take up careers in aerospace engineering and said its 'Swayam' portal will offer online courses on the subject from July 29. “ISRO will go 'back to the moon' today. Learn Aerospace Engineering with Swayam, who knows, if you are a part of the journey the next time,” the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry tweeted.
The Ministry's 'Swayam' portal will offer six online courses in aerospace engineering and these will help students acquire skills and knowledge on designing, manufacturing and maintenance of spacecraft, aircraft, missiles and weapons systems. The courses being offered on the portal include the 12-week 'Aircraft stability and control' course and 'Design of fixed wing unmanned aerial vehicles' course of eight weeks. Both the courses will be conducted by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur.
IIT Kanpur is conducting two more courses 'Introduction to ancient Indian technology' (8 weeks) and 'Introduction to rocket propulsion' (12 weeks). While IIT Bombay is offering a 12-week course in 'Introduction to aerospace engineering/flight', IIT Kharagpur is offering a eight-week course in 'Vibration and structural dynamics'. Launched in 2016, the HRD Ministry's 'Swayam' platform hosts Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
New Delhi: Students might soon be able to pursue multiple degrees simultaneously from different universities or the same university, with the University Grants Commission (UGC) studying the feasibility of the idea.
The UGC has set up a panel headed by its Vice Chairman Bhushan Patwardhan to examine the issue of pursuing two degree programmes simultaneously from the same university or different universities either through distance mode, online mode or part time mode.
However, this is not the first time the commission is examining the issue. The UGC had set up a committee in 2012 as well and consultations were held on the same but ultimately the idea was junked.
"The panel was set up late last month and has already met once. Now consultations are being held with different stakeholders to explore the feasibility of the idea," a senior UGC official told PTI.
The 2012 committee headed by then Vice Chancellor of Hyderabad University, Furqan Qamar, had recommended that a student enrolled in a degree programme under regular mode may be allowed to pursue a maximum of one additional degree programme simultaneously under open or distance mode from the same or a different university.
"However, two degree programmes under regular mode may not be allowed simultaneously as it may create logistic, administrative and academic problems. A student pursuing a degree programme under regular mode may be allowed to pursue a maximum of one certificate, diploma, advanced diploma, PG diploma programme simultaneously either in regular or open and distance mode in the same university or from other institutions," the panel report had said.
According to UGC officials,"the commission had then sought comments of the statutory councils on the committees report and the responses received did not endorse the idea of allowing students to pursue multiple degree programmes simultaneously. Hence the plan did not take off".
"It has now been decided to revisit the idea because technology has brought in lot of changes. There are vast majority of people who want to pursue specialised courses besides their regular degree programmes," the official said.

New Delhi: In a relief to medical students wanting to pursue post-graduate courses, the Union Health Ministry has proposed to do away with NEET-PG and instead the final MBBS examination would be enough for admission to MD and MS programmes.
The amendment has been incorporated in the revised draft National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill which would be sent to the Cabinet soon, official sources told PTI.
According to them, the changes have been incorporated in the bill on the directions of the Prime Ministers Office (PMO).
"According to the amendments made in the fresh NMC Bill, entry into the PG programmes will be on the basis of the results of the National Exit Test (NEXT), which would be held as a common exam across the country. So the candidates would not have to appear in a separate exam after clearing the MBBS final exam for admission to PG courses," the source explained.
The students would also not be required to appear in a separate exam after MBBS to obtain a license to practice.
However, for admission to PG programmes at AIIMS, clearing a separate exam will remain mandatory. Also, the NEET Super Speciality, which is a national-level entrance exam for admission in DM/MCh courses, will continue, sources said.
Every year 80,000 students take admission into MBBS courses in about 480 medical colleges in the country, while 1.5 lakh students appear for entrance exams for admission to around 50,000 PG seats.
The NMC Bill was introduced in Parliament in December 2017, but it lapsed with the dissolution of the 16th Lok Sabha.
After its introduction in the lower house in 2017, the Bill, which aims to replace the Medical Council of India Act, 1956 and included the contentious provision of a "bridge course" to allow practitioners of alternative medicines to pursue allopathy, was referred to a Department-Related Parliamentary Standing Committee following massive protests from the medical fraternity.
The first version of the Bill also proposed a national-level licentiate exam for all MBBS graduates for getting licence to practice in India.
But it was removed following strong protests by several doctor bodies.
The provision of the bridge course was also strongly opposed by health bodies, including the Indian Medical Association, which claimed that allowing AYUSH doctors to practice modern medicine would promote "quackery", although the ministry had argued that the provision seeks to address the "acute shortage" of doctors in the country.
The parliamentary panel gave its recommendations in March 2018, following which the Health Ministry scrapped the provision of bridge course and also made some other changes as suggested by the committee before moving the official amendments in the Lok Sabha.
"It has been left to state governments to take necessary measures for addressing and promoting primary healthcare in rural areas," the amendment stated and also made the punishment for unauthorised practice of medicine more severe with imprisonment of up to one year along with a fine of up to Rs 5 lakh.
New Delhi: There is no proposal at present to recognise one year postgraduate degree obtained from foreign countries, the HRD Ministry said Monday.
The information was shared by Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank in response to a written question in Lok Sabha.
"As per the current policy, equivalence is accorded by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) only for those Masters degree awarded by approved, recognised or accredited foreign universities that are of two-year duration," he said.
The minister said a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on mutual recognition of qualifications at multilateral basis is not practicable due to variation in higher education system worldwide.
"No such panel specifically to recognise one year Masters degree from foreign university, has been set up. However, a committee under the chairpersonship of chairman, University Grants Commission (UGC), was set up to look into the problems of equivalence of qualifications, obtained in a foreign country, at various stages of education system. The committee gave its recommendations, which were centred around the principle of mutual respect for the academic sovereignty of each country," Nishank added.
He said as per the recommendations of the UGC committee, India may enter into an agreement with such countries where there is a difference between recognition of degrees and they have put in place a rigorous system of approval, accreditation or quality assurance of their higher educational institutions.
