Welcome to Equal Opportunity Cell Cusat !
Cochin University of Science & Technology has been conducting Remedial Coaching classes for the UG courses for SC/ST from 20.07.08 as per the UGC guidelines for XIth plan period. From 2009 onwards this facility has been extended to the OBC(Non-creamy layer) and other minority students of UG/PG courses also. The Remedial Coaching aims at improving the academic skills and linguistic proficiency of the students in the various subjects and raising their level of comprehension in such subjects where quantitative, technical and laboratory work are involved. The guidance and training provided under the programme may enable the students to come up the level necessary for pursuing higher studies efficiently and to reduce failure and drop out rates.
An Advisory Committee has been constituted as per the UGC guidelines with Vice Chancellor as Chairman and five Senior Professors of the University as members for monitoring and guiding the Remedial Coaching Programme.
The other two schemes of UGC for SC/ST/OBC(non-creamylayer) and other minorities are (1) Coaching Scheme for entry in services and (2) Coaching Scheme to prepare NET and SET which are being conducted by the University Guidance Bureau
