Quality of higher education in Coimbatore city
Dr. G Vengatesan and U Kaviarasu
Higher education is generally understood to cover teaching, research and extension. If we critically analyze the different concepts of higher education, we can list the various roles higher education plays in the society. Higher education is the source or feeder system in all walks of life and therefore supplies the much-needed human resources in management, planning, design, teaching and research. Scientific and technological advancement and economic growth of a country are as dependent on the higher education system as they are on the working class.
Therefore, the Higher Education should prepare students with global competencies to successfully face the Changing global scenario. This requires the Higher Education to be innovative, creative and entrepreneurial in their approach to skills development among students. This may involve collaborating with industries, networking with the neighborhoods and fostering a closer relationship between the worlds of work and learning. In calculating a value system in students although skills development is critical to the success of students in the job market, skills are of no value in the absence of an appropriate value system.
