Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune will allow BS-MS integrated student to opt for the intensive courses of Humanities along with their Basic Sciences regular course curriculum. The integration of the courses with the main undergraduate course will be done after the syllabus gets managed accordingly. The change is expected to come into effect in August 2019.
IISER Pune was founded in 2006 by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and this is going to be the first time since its inception that IISER is going to revise its syllabus. This dual degree course, spread over eight semesters offers students streams in chemistry, math, physics, and biology. Apart from this, students can also choose courses in earth and atmospheric sciences, and humanities. Two semesters are focused mainly on the Master's research project.
Jayant Udgaonkar, Director of IISER Pune has confirmed the development and said that the next academic batch starting from August 2019 will have the revised syllabus. It is also expected that the courses will have a more flexible structure than the previous curriculum.
Udgaonkar informed the media that the students get a Master of Science (MS) degree in general even if they choose subjects of their specialisation. This won't be the case anymore. Subjects such as Computer Science and Machine Learning are expected to be a part of it. Students who opt for their specialisation or super-specialisation will have their course specialisation mentioned.
IISER Pune has plans for expansion of its humanities wing and the academicians at IISER believe that this will benefit students and help them strike a balance between their focused study and the real world. It will also enable the students to enhance their skills and knowledge.
