BK Birla College gets autonomous status

PUBLISH DATE 27th July 2018

BK Birla College in Kalyan is among 13 colleges under the University of Mumbai (MU) that have received autonomous status by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

With its inclusion, BK Birla has become the first such college in Thane district to receive the status.

The institute now possesses the freedom to reconstruct and design the course or syllabus from time to time, making it viable to students within Thane. Apart from the professional and vocational courses, they can also include skill-oriented courses that will offer higher employability.

“With the autonomy, we have the freedom to include modern education techniques and tools that make the education process more attractive and effective. We will soon begin courses like photography and animation for which, until now, students had to travel to Mumbai. Based on the demands of the job market and the recent trends, we will be able to include more courses every year,” said OR Chitlange, chairman, governing council.

Naresh Chandra, director, Birla College, said, “We will work towards enhancing the syllabus and ditching the traditional teaching methods.”

Vaibhav Singh, an educationalist from Thane explained that autonomy would be beneficial for the students. “For an institute in Thane district, this is a boon as students can choose their preferred subjects and avoid traveling to far-off colleges,” he said.

Mahadev Jagtap, senate member, University of Mumbai, said the change will still be controlled by the MU. “The only benefit students get is a unique or technology-based syllabus. The motive to reduce the workload of the university is not served as there will be more subjects and courses to handle,” he said.
