Lucknow University sets pace to develop the 4-year UG Programme with new course subjects.
Lucknow University and its various department have gathered momentum to develop and refine their programmes and courses under the banner of the National Education Policy-2020. This new scheme will introduce the concept of a 4-year undergraduate degree, resulting in an overall expansion in the scope of the syllabus. In this light, the Physics Department at the varsity has decided to include 4 new papers to proffer the contribution of ancient Indian texts and scientists into this field of science.
Lucknow University programmes to now include new subjects & courses
Professor Poonam Tandon, the Head of the Department of Physics, Lucknow Unversity, has proposed to include the subjects of Ancient Indian Science, Introduction to Ancient and Modern Indian Scientists and Texts, Ancient Indian Geometry in the World, India Born Theorem (Pythagoras) in the first question paper of the degree.
Besides, comprehensive education regarding the principle of the sun regarding gravity, the motion of the planets, the pure value of pi, up to eleven decimal places, will also be included. The rationale behind this expansion of course in the first year itself will enable the students to attain a certificate credit in 'introduction to Indian tests and science', even if they study for only one year.
Meanwhile, four new branched subjects will be also be rolled out by LU's Physics Department. These include nanotechnology, fibre optics, computer simulation, plasma and space science. Accordingly, 4 new coordinators were deployed by the University on Tuesday, to look into the logistics and operations of the new departments. These heads have been assigned on duty, as per the directives of the LU Registrar, Dr. Vinod Khanna,
