IIT, JNU join hands for common course

New Delhi: Nearly a year after Delhi University and Jamia Millia Islamia embarked on the Master of Mathematics Education programme under the meta university concept, Jawaharlal Nehru University and Indian Institute of Technology (Delhi) are gear­ing up to set up a programme of their own.
While IIT Delhi said the initial formula required all four uni­versities to participate together, the concept got divided after DU and Jamia embarked upon the Masters course.
"The meta university con­cept was supposed to have all four universities on board. But then, DU and Jamia went ahead and started their own mathematics course. We are now working out the modalities with JNU to launch the programme and will sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by this month," said RK Shevgaonkar, director, IIT Delhi.
While the Finer nuances of the programme are yet to be worked out, officials said the programme would be meant for post-gradu­ate students in humanities. At the same time, they claimed they were looking at tapping JNU's science streams as well.
"Humanities students from both JNU and IIT will get to select courses from the institutes and there will be an arrange­ment for calculating credits. The modalities are still being worked out, but the stress is on facili­tating this programme for PhD students, research scholars and master's students," he added.
