What do they think of Indian Education System:
As for fact, I may be one of the oldest education system but if we compare us with that time there has been loss in human value in education. However, serious concern is being voiced about poor employability and credibility of research and its relevance to solving the pressing problems of the society and industry. Further, there has been a loss of human values in the education system.
Education is not just imparting knowledge but developing capabilities, competence and character together transforming the students into industry ready responsible citizens who shall devote to the service of society and Mother Nature. I must not hesitate to add that India of our dream cannot be created without giving top priority to the quality, relevance and credibility of our education system. Amity University not just making professionals who are oriented to the job but also individuals who are focused in making a better planet, humans and country.
