VICE-CHANCELLOR

From Vice-Chancellors DeskMaharshi Dayanand University was established in 1976 with the aim to promote higher studies and research in the field of environmental, ecological and life sciences. During the span of last 30 years, the University has made, remarkable progress in different spheres. Academic upliftment, especially introduction of professional job oriented courses has been a priority. In the session 2006-07, new courses, like M.Sc.(Medical Biotechnology), M.Sc. (Food Processing and Technology), M.Sc. (Mathematics with Computer Science), MBA (International Business) at ILMS, Gurgaon, MBA (Business Economics), Diploma in French, Certificate course in French and Spanish have been

introduced. A new department of Business Economics has been established in the Faculty of Management Sciences. A separate Institute of Hotel & Tourism Management has been established. A new faculty of Visual and Performing Arts has been created. Other new departments created include-Advanced Centre for Bio-technology and department of Biochemistry & Genetics. In the academic session 2005-06, a new department of Engineering and Technology was established on the campus with engineering courses in the discipline of Computer Science & Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering and Biotechnology Engineering. As a matter of fact, M. D. University has undergone a paradigm shift vis-a-vis introduction of new academic courses, various academic reforms and new academic initiatives including linkages at National and international level for collaborative and participative research and higher studies. It is a great pride that University has already signed MoUs with some of the leading foreign universities and are in the process of finalizing more MoUs with other foreign universities of Canada and U.S.A. It is our endeavour to introduce more highly specialized job oriented courses, so that our students get better employment opportunities. Distance Education is an established and recognized mode of education, which is in consonance with changing socio-economic needs and emerging demands of the knowledge era. Keeping in view the Open University system and long standing demand of heterogeneous group of students community, the Directorate of Distance Education has started a wide spectrum of Courses. This mode of education is becoming more and more popular these days, particularly for those in service and the girl students. The students are able to enhance their academic qualifications at their door step without disturbing their daily routine. The Directorate is housed in a spacious building and is manned by experienced staff. Over the years, DDE has expanded tremendously in terms of programmes, enrolment and study centres. All the 20 Courses run by the Directorate are well received. It is our earnest desire to provide the best quality of education to the students. We not only facilitate our students to acquire best knowledge of their subjects but also foster in them the important and vital attributes of a civilized human being. As M.D.U. evolves into a Centre of Excellence, young minds will bloom and spread their branches in all direction. I welcome the students of the new academic session and wish them all a great future.

(RAJ S. DHANKAR)

From the Directors DeskEducation is a liberating force. It plays a crucial role in the promotion of individual excellence and development process. Growing realization of this has led to the emergence of Open and Distance Learning (ODL) as an alternative to democratize education. Now ODL, propelled by the new Information (ICT), has and been over , Communication Liberalization, Technologies Globalization

expanding at a faster than ever before. More and

Privatization have brought about a total change in the role and characteristics of learners. In order to make higher education extensive in reach and flexible in accordance with learners pace, Open Universities (OU) and Distance Learning Institutes (DLIS) are working with a missionary zeal so as to convert the vision of `reaching the unreached into a reality. The Directorate of Distance Education M.D.University has played a pioneering role in this regard. In order to meet the ever-increasing demand of the students living in remote areas, MDU established DDE in the year 1988. As of now, about 54,000 students are pursuing their studies through its programmes. General programmes have been proved beneficial for an aware citizenry, whereas, specialized and skill oriented courses prepare them for professional jobs and careers. With a view to attain excellence and to gain a sustainable competitive advantage, we make use of technology in imparting the best to our students. A lot of care is taken while designing and updating curriculum. The updating of curriculum is done by respective post-graduate departments from time-to-time. These are endowed with well qualified faculty and other infrastructural facilities necessary to support distance education programmes. The Directorate has opened study centers in Haryana and its adjoining states in order to provide learning at the door steps of students. Teaching in these study centers is tuned to the needs and capabilities of the learners so as to enable them to equip them with necessary skills and understand the study material. I am sure, the Directorate programmes will provide students not only education for living and livelihood but also education for life as our focus is on the inculcation of values through the curriculum.
