“The approval and recognition of the new ME program in mining will ensure the AICTE scholarship to the tune of Rs 13,000 for GATE-qualified students,” OUCE principal Dr. Sriram Venkatesh said.

From 2022-23, ten out of thirty seats in the Bio-Medical Engineering program will be reserved for TS EAMCET-qualified students who completed BiPC in Intermediate. Such students will be admitted under the self-finance category and will be required to take a mathematics bridge course. Until now, admission to this program was limited to candidates who completed MPC in Intermediate.

Meanwhile, the OUCE is preparing to launch a revised curriculum for undergraduate and postgraduate courses this year. In response to industry demands and to improve students’ employability, the college has revamped 40% of the curriculum. Experts from industry and R&D organizations, in addition to college alumni, will cover at least 40% of the course curriculum in both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
