GGSIPU to Start Three New Regular Courses

New Delhi: Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU), New Delhi, is all set to start three new regular courses, from this academic session 2012-13. The yet-to-be introduced courses are M Tech (Master of Technology) in Food Processing Technology, PG (Post Graduate) Diploma in Radiological Physics and PG Diploma in Educational Management.
 
As per sources, all the three programmes are being launched in view of the increasing demand in these fields. Similarly, the M Tech programme has been launched and designed focusing on the growing demand for skilled and technologically equipped manpower in the sector.
 
Discussing about the M Tech programme, RK Gupta, faculty, School of Biotechnology, said that the entry of big brands in the food retail market has increased the momentum of growth in the fruit and vegetable processing sector. The course aims at providing knowledge into the recent technology relevant to the current food processing sector. In addition, the course deals in-depth with the nutraceuticals, health and diet foods.
 
Gupta also informed that the course deals with how to design a product in labs to its market launch in various sectors of food processing. Students with a BE, B Tech, MS and M Sc background can apply for the course. As to job prospects, he said that students can go in for food processing sectors, nutraceutical industries, regulatory bodies, food standards and analysis companies, or can look for a career in food research institutes in India and abroad.
 
Moreover, for PG Diploma in Radiological Physics, Avinash Sharma, faculty, School of Sciences, explained that till now, radiological physics as a discipline, was offered only at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai. But now GGSIPU will be offering a PG Diploma in the subject on the same pattern as taught at BARC.
 
Sharma added that after completing the course, students can opt for jobs like radiation safety officers in research institutes, in health care centres, specialty hospitals, cancer research institutes, etc. He also informed that the University has already tied up with a few hospitals for hands-on-training as well as for future placements. Students from M Sc in physics, biophysics with mathematics, as a must at the UG level, can apply for this course.
 
Furthermore, the third course - PG diploma in Educational Management, is designed to cater to the needs of leadership in the education sector. Discussing about the same, Saroj Sharma, faculty, School of Education, said that the course deals with creating leaders in the field of education.
