Brief History of Department

Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University (BAMU) proposes to offer a two-year Master programme in Science (M. Sc.) in Electronics established in 2016-17 The curriculum design of this program is undertaken in the following framework (assumptions).

a)Although there has been remarkable progress in all sectors of education in last couple of decades, there has been increasing crisis for truly able manpower to address the growing demands for work sectors. This has led to the widening gap between the supply and demand for skilled manpower across teaching institutions, R&D organizations and industries. Such inadequacy of knowledge acquisition and dissemination has translated directly into unemployment among an increasing number of post-graduates who pass-out every year and are forced to bare-trained in order to become marketable.

A scientifically designed framework, which will enable students at post graduate level to be ready to face the challenges of the demand driven socio-economic profile is therefore, a call of the day. Such a course should not be occupation specific and should enable students to choose from a variety of options for their career.

This programme is designed to produce a skilled manpower in Electronics with Industrial Automations specialized sector of training to improve the opportunities for the unemployed youths in both the private and public sectors.

b) According to a study conducted by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM), there will be a deficit of 40 million working professionals by the year 2020 and the employers would face the difficulty of filling positions because of the dearth of suitable talent and skilled person all in their industry. This programme aims to provide some solution for this problem and this would facilitate to improve.

  1. Quality of training
  2. High drop-out rates
  3. Linkages with Universities and industry)
  4. Inadequacy of resources.

c) This programme is intended to offer practical training and skills needed to pursue an occupation straight away. It will provide options to the students to be trained in directions which are directly aligned to land a job in a chosen profession or a skilled trade.

d) The RUSA Centre for Advanced and Sensor Technology is housed in the same building. This centre have state-of-the-art Infrastructure right from material preparations, testing, device fabrication to device characterizations. This has provided an opportunity for the students to opt for the research-oriented career. The curriculum has been designed in such way that the students will have options to choose research oriented or industry-oriented courses Special courses which start from research methodology to development sensors devices have been incorporated in the curriculum.

e) This program is intended to offer students with Ide-long independent and reflective learning skills in their career.
