CCSU to offer seven new subjects
Guwahati: The newly formed Cotton College State University (CCSU) here will offer seven new subjects in its academic programme to teach students job oriented modern courses.
The state-run university will also continue to teach 23 existing subjects of its constituent 112-year old Cotton College, CCSU Vice Chancellor Dhruba J Saikia said.
Some of the new subjects are Environmental Biology and Wildlife Management, Archeology, Psychology, Atmospheric and Climate Science, and Sociology, Saikia said.
Talking about the faculty of CCSU, Saikia said "I have proposed to the government to have around 200 teachers for the university once it is fully operational. We`ll start appointing them gradually."
He said willing and eligible Cotton college teachers would be taken on board. The rest would be appointed afresh.
On infrastructure of CCSU, Saikia said "the government is looking for land. We cannot go far away from the College campus as it`s our constituent. In the new land parcel, we can develop some specialised centres for doing research.
CCSU was created in 2011 through an act of Assam government.
Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is the first Chancellor of the CCSU with Cotton College as its constituent college.
Cotton College was set up with the support of the then Chief Commissioner of the then Assam Province from 1896 to 1902, Sir Henry John Stedman Cotton. The college is named after him.
