U V Khadke, Sangshetty Kalyane

Abstract


It is indeed true that science provides the fundamentals for the development of new technology. It should also be admitted that no technology can prosper unless scientific methods are understood and adopted in professional manner. On the contrary, science plays only a small part in technical curriculum which might hinder the development of any country. The science faculty is only a humble unit in the science & Engineering curriculum that is engaged on the formal fulfillment of the technical courses. This paper shed a light on present scenario of applied sciences in top technical institutions of India. An attempt has been made to analyse the applied science curricula of autonomous, affiliated and deemed institutions based on the comparison of quality, quantity, its adaptability. Also, proposes an alternative curriculum model to facilitate the budding engineer and technologists to meet the global standards.
