In order to steer the local youth of Arunachal, the Arunachal University of Studies (AUS), has announced plans to establish a multi-specialty hospital and also introduce degree courses in nursing education, mass communication and medical education.
At the first convocation of the University, Chancellor-cum-WEM Chairman, Aswini Lochan, while delivering his speech, disclosed the proposed planning of the course that aims at bringing the youth of the state to the national mainstream so that they can carve a niche and can show their performance globally.
Professor V K Kawatra, acting Vice Chancellor said that AUS has pragmatic plans for expansion. The University will introduce a course in Buddhist studies from next year where learned monks will participate.
Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein said the growth of human resources in the state under the supervision of the World Education Mission (WEM) would definitely help to meet avowed objectives. The skilled workforce in large number is the need of the hour. He also suggested the introduction of new and latest technologies in the agricultural sector.
He also sought a proposal for setting up a mobile agriculture laboratory for the speedy growth of Arunachal's huge agri-horticulture sector. State's Education Minister, Honchun Ngandam said that students are free to decide what to do. Learning and upholding quality education is a must as there is no other scope in this competitive world. Life is a great challenge and students should learn to face it without making any excuses.
