July 2007 - July 2010 Vice-Chancellor, Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu, India.
       
    Activities  
       
      At Bharathidasan University, as the Vice-Chancellor in July 2007, he introduced the following innovative programs for the benefit of the Students  and Researchers and Academic Services to the rural based school dropouts and handicapped persons.
         
      1) Introduction of Skill based Curriculum under an innovative CBCS Scheme, introduced in all the Universities in Tamil Nadu.:
           
          He noted that the undergraduate curriculum offered by the University through the affiliated colleges are theoretical and the Graduates are not employable on graduation and that the Degrees of this kind do not really help the students coming from the economically backward rural areas. He further noted that the curriculum did not include a course on Tamil, the Regional language of this land, as a compulsory component of the curriculum.  He, therefore, believed  strongly that the curriculum of the undergraduate degree programs of all disciplines should include skill based components and a compulsory course on Tamil for all the students with a provision to study their mother tongue too. Accordingly he revised the curriculum of all the undergraduate degree programs, introducing practical oriented Skill based courses and study of Tamil as  compulsory components of the curriculum under Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). Appreciating this curriculum the Government of Tamil Nadu  advised all other universities in Tamil Nadu to follow the same curriculum introduced by the Bharathidasan University.
           
      2) Introducing an innovative concept for Early Graduation  by the Fast learners :
           
          He has also introduced a unique 6-year integrated M.Tech. programs in Computer Science and Engineering, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, and Geo-technology in the University Departments for the 12th Standard pass students, integrating B.Tech. and M.Tech. degrees under CBCS, incorporating an  innovative concept of  early graduation for the fast learners. Bharathidasan University is the first to offer such an innovative concept in the country.
           
      3) Empowerment Rural Men and Women through Skill based Training :
           
          He believes that the University system should not stop its activities only with offering academic programs and awarding Degrees. The University system should serve the community in spreading educational awareness among the people and ensure that the Scientific and Technological developments reach the society and help them for their economical development. To achieve this goal he has introduced an excellent scheme to benefit  the people in the eight districts served by the  Bharathidasan University. He has introduced a program to establish “Counselling  and Career Development  Centre(CCDC)” to provide the following services :
           
          i) Career Guidance through Touch Screen based information resource for Educational opportunities, Employment   opportunities, Adult Education, Health Awareness, E-governance and guidance to the farmers, supported by a Senior Academician placed at the Centre.
             
          ii) Empowerment Men and Women for Entrepreneurship/Employment  through Skill based training and placement with the help of  Industries and Service Sector.
             
          iii) Formal training to the artisans, like self made Electricians, Plumbers, Masons, Mechanics, Welders, etc. and awarding University Certificates through appropriate testing.
             
          iv) Offering Academic programs of the University under Distance Education mode in the  (CCDC).
           
      4) Introducing Cluster College Concept :
           
          The undergraduate curriculum introduced by him also provided for opting for interdisciplinary courses as non-major electives. These courses can be studied by the students in any other department or College. To facilitate this he has introduced Cluster College Concept for Resource sharing.
           
      5) Introducing facilities for Academic Excellence :
           
          He has established a Nanotechnology Research Centre, and proposed to establish a Lab for innovation for creative research by the students and a Technical Skill development and testing laboratory in the University campus for training and certification of the Artisans.
           
      6) Creating a platform for publishing Research contributions in the Regional language and English :
           
          He has introduced a bi-annual journal in the name of “Bharathidasan University Journal of Science Technology”  for publication by the University in Bi-lingual, English and Tamil, the first issue having been released in March 2008. He believes that the technological advancements in the world should reach all the technocrats of all levels including technicians who are not very familiar with English language and therefore he has initiated publication of the English based  technical journals in Tamil. As the  first initiative IEEE Spectrum was translated in Tamil and the first issue was released in March 2008.
           
      7) Academic Service to the visually impaired :
           
          To promote educational services to the visually handicapped persons with the help of computers, a Software development cell has been established and a visually impaired  Professor with adequate experience in software like Braille has been identified for posting in the cell.
           
      8) Enhancement of the University campus facilities :
           
          Actions are initiated to improve the University campus as an excellent campus for the living of the students and staff  to provide the following facilities: Construction of a five-bedded hospital  in the campus, a shopping  complex, an indoor stadium with gymnasium,  a married student apartment , an auditorium, a modern sports field , and a school for the children of staff members of the university  have been planned, included in the 11th plan proposals of the UGC and necessary approval from the concerned authorities of the University has been obtained.
           
      9) Waste water recycling  and water management system for the University campus :
           
          An expert was assigned with a project work to study the water resources in the campus and submit a scheme for implementation. The Expert has submitted his Report with a plan for implementation,  covering the aspects like rain water  harvesting, ground water recharging, waste water recycling, and water requirements for drinking and for plantation on a long term basis. The report has been taken for implementation.
           
      10) Establishment of Grievance cell for Students :
           
          A Grievance cell for students, headed by a senior academician as the Director,  has been established. The cell is  provided with computer and internet facilities for direct access to the university information system.
           
      11) Introducing Virtual Education Programs :
           
          Virtual Education program is planned to be introduced from this academic year for the MCA, MBA,  M.A.(Tamil), and M.Phil.(Tamil) courses.
