AU likely to get Central varsity status, says VC

‘There will be ample scope for taking up developmental activities’

Union Ministry of Human Resources Development is actively considering the proposal to upgrade the Andhra University to a Central University, Vice Chancellor G.S.N. Raju said.

The Andhra University has gained international reputation for its quality research work and its students are in position of eminence in research establishments across the world, but the university today is struggling under a resource crunch as the State government is unable to allocate funds to it.

The State government funds barely meet the expenditures like salaries and maintenance and there are no resources for development of the university or funding research work, he said addressing students at a one-day ‘Workshop on Microelectronics at Department of Systems Design’.

Once the university comes under Central government there would be ample scope and funds for taking up developmental activities, he said.

In all likelihood the university would get the Central University status by the end of this academic year, the Vice Chancellor said.


Further, there was also a proposal to upgrade the AU College of Engineering (Autonomous) into an Indian Institute of Technology. The government was considering upgrading of a few engineering colleges across the country and the AUCE(A) was among them, he said.

Both the moves show the respect the university has gained in the country and abroad for its quality of teaching and the capabilities of its students, Prof Raju said.
