Purpose Of This Scheme
According to DU Vice-Chancellor Professor Yogesh Singh, the purpose of this scheme is to increase the efficiency of individuals by providing them with new information. He said that under this scheme, entrepreneurs will be able to increase their business by acquiring new skills/technology.
Likewise, the study of management courses will improve the managerial skills of the lower/middle-level management personnel. Those who could not acquire the requisite qualification earlier due to socio-economic conditions or any shortage during that time will be able to fulfil their dreams of getting higher education from this scheme.
According to the Vice Chancellor, under this scheme, senior citizens would continue to play important roles by enhancing their qualifications/knowledge/skills.
Traditional artisans, craftsmen or workers will improve their skills by learning to use the latest technology/machines under this scheme and will upgrade themselves by using modern tools instead of traditional systems.
Learning with young and energetic students will instil confidence, enthusiasm and a sense of purpose in them. This scheme will lead to the effective utilisation of the resources of the university for the benefit of the people in a big way.
The objective of this scheme is also to increase the mobility of students by giving the opportunity to students admitted to other Universities/Institutions to study one to two courses in a semester without enrolling in any course at delhi university.
He said that the objective of this scheme is to enable society at large to meet the ever-evolving needs of the business/workplace.
