Amritsar, October 8

Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) has started short- term courses to boost career opportunities for students.

One such course is drug and pollution testing laboratory (DPTL). Dr Preet Mohinder Singh Bedi, who is the coordinator of the courses, said a large number of students passing the intermediate examination were looking for short courses. “On the demand of students, we started short-term programmes, including water and waste water analysis, air monitoring and analysis and instrumental methods of analysis. Short- term courses are like career-boosting opportunities for students,” he said.

Dr Bedi said, “These courses help students in enhancing their skills and acquire more knowledge on core subjects. In a way, it helps the students in gaining more information, different perspectives and an in-depth understanding of vital subjects or topics which a student is willing to know more about.”

He informed that the DPTL had been established as per the decision of the Syndicate. “It was set up for providing a wide range of testing services independently. It’s main objective is to carry out high-end testing, consultancy and research,” he said.

Dr Bedi said these courses have been designed to aid in understanding operation, daily working, analysis, calibration, troubleshooting and software handling. On-site training programmes may also be offered as per the specific requirement. The university will provide a certificate after evaluating performance of each student in every module.
