Haryana is getting economically developed day by day and is also becoming an educational hub as many universities are being set up in the state. As the state is in proximity to Delhi, many students from nearby states and cities come to study in Haryana. Haryana has many government, private and deemed universities. If we discuss specifically about the government universities in the state, there are central, state and deemed universities. They offer under graduate, post graduate and professional courses.
These government universities in Haryana offer courses in various fields such as arts, science, commerce, management, law and technology, etc. The government colleges/universities in haryyana face competition from the flourishing private colleges/universities which are popular for the quality education they offer to the students.
The prime question here is - are these government colleges/universities in Haryana capable enough to compete and meet today's challenges? In the present scenario and the competitive environment in the market, there are lots of expectations from the students and aspiring job seekers. Let us have a look at some of the related aspects.
The biggest point of consideration in any college and university is of presence of qualified and experienced teachers or professors. As per recent reports, the High Court of Punjab and Haryana has instructed the Haryana Public Service Commission (HPSC) to fill in the high number of vacant positions in the colleges. This proves that the government universities are not well equipped with the number of teachers required in the colleges.
Lack of faculty in the colleges obviously puts a question on the quality of education these universities impart. There is an urgent need of well qualified faculties, who are aware of the current trends and demands in the market regarding the knowledge, skills and education expected from the students.
Another important challenge that the government universities face in Haryana is to offer placement and job opportunities to the students. Some private or the deemed universities offer 100% placement opportunities, which attract the students to take admission in such universities. The government universities of the state are generally considered lacking in infrastructure, imparting professional skills, education and courses to the students. There is a need to improve the standard of education and to include more professional education in these universities, so as to compete with today's challenges.
Haryana, which is known as the IT and education hub, is in the need to provide qualified and skilled manpower which can face and compete with the challenges of the society. The education department of Haryana is required to make changes in the curriculum as well, so that they can include the subjects which are in high demand and are trending in the competitive market. The government of Haryana should provide some financial aid to these universities, so that they can overcome their flaws. Naya Haryana, a dream that we envision, always looks forward for the development of the state.
