BENGALURU: A year after offering courses at its post-graduate centre in Ramanagara, Bangalore University finally hopes to get the requisite infrastructure.
A delegation, led by in-charge Vice-Chancellor Prof Ramesh, on Saturday met local MP D K Suresh and the district administration and requested them for a temporary building to operate the PG centre. And they agreed to provide a building for this academic year.
“As a temporary arrangement, they are giving us a building which is under the district administration and also assured us of providing land to build our own infrastructure. A team of syndicate members has gone for inspection,” said Prof Ramesh. At least 25 students have got admissions at the centre for 2017-18. If the university does not get the infrastructure, the students have to come to Jnana Bharathi campus in Bengaluru.
Those who have got admissions to Ramanagara PG centre in 2016-17 travelled to Bengaluru to attend the classes. Due to lack of infrastructure, the university is offering only one course — MA in Economics — at Ramanagara centre.
