Profile of PES College of Science

P.E.S. College of Science, the dream child of late Sri K.V.Shankara Gowda, an educationist, politician, artist, entrepreneur, social worker has completed 38 years in the field of Education, under the able leadership of the present President Sri H.D.Chowdaiah, General Secretary Sri K.S.Sachidananda, Joint Secretary Sri H.Honnappa and Vice Presidents Sriyuths Basavaiah and M.Ramegowda. The Institutional development should also be attributed to our Principals Sriyuths B.A.Krishnaswamy Rao, Riyaz Ahmed, Kappanna, Muthaiah, N.Ramegowda and Dr.D.Srinivasa from 1966-67 to 1998-99. Each of them has contributed for the development of the Institution in one way or the other. The College admits all students who fulfill the minimum qualification requirements for admission to any course, of course subject to the limitation on strength imposed by the University authorities. We are satisfied with the results we get which average to about 45 to 50% in Arts, 50 to 60% in Science and up to 80% in Commerce and Management Courses. Thus we feel that we are a mixture of positive and negative factors. Our goal is to move towards becoming positive in course of time. We feel as assessment by NAAC will help us to know where we stand and in which direction we should proceed.

NAAC report of PES College of Science

Section-I : Introduction
Mandya is a district headquarters in south Karnataka and is on Bangalore-Mysore highway. Once educationally and economically backward district, it progressed after the construction of Krishnaraj Sagar dam. It gave new lease of life to the people of Mandya.

People's Education Society's Science College was established in 1966 to spread education in and around Mandya. P.E.S. Science college is one of the several other institutions run by P.E.T (People's Education Trust). At the time of establishment the college had 128 students. It is spread over an area of 3 acres. It is also recognized by the UGC under 2f and 12B. Located in a semi-urban area, it attracts a significant percentage of students from rural areas with economically disadvantaged background. The college is covered under Grant-in-aid scheme of Government of Karnataka. P.E.S. College of Science, Mandya, volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, Bangalore by submitting their self-study report. National Assessment and Accreditation council constituted a Peer Team to visit the college and validate its self-study report. The Peer Team comprised of :

Prof. V.Shivakumar (Chairman)
Professor and Director,
Centre for Latin American Studies,
Goa University, Taleigaon Plateau-403203.

Prof. N.Varaprasad Rao (Member)
Nagarjuna Govt. College,
Andra Pradesh.

Prof. S.C.Dhuttargaon (Member Coordinator)
Shriman Bhausaheb Zadbake Mahavidyalaya
Barshi-413401 (Maharashtra).

The Peer Team visited the institution for two days, i.e., on 1st September and 2nd September 2004. The Peer Team carefully perused and analysed the self study report submitted by the institution. During the visit, Peer Team went through relevant documents, visited the departments and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra curricular, sports and other facilities of the institution were assessed. The Peer Team also interacted at length with the Principal, Faculty, Students, Non-teaching staff, Parents and Alumni of the institution. Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the criteria identified by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, the Peer Team submits this report to the NAAC for their perusal.

Section-II - Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion-I : Curricular aspects :

The stated goals of the institution are indeed noble. They are :

To develop the sprit of learning, research, creativity and challenges among the rural students and

To create a sense of civic consciousness and there by contributing to the growth and development of the community.

In order to achieve the goals set by the founding fathers, the Management with the college authorities have taken strides to provide the facilities of higher education to the students of this region by offering different courses in the faculty of Arts, Science and Commerce. The Functional English and Journalism are new and innovative courses introduced by the college. Further College is providing a platform for the students in various curricular activities with a view to develop an all-round personality of the students.

In the faculty of Arts the subjects such as History, Economics, Political Science, Sociology, Folklore, English and Kannada are taught. In the faculty of Science, the traditional subjects like Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Electronics, Computer Science, Botany and Zoology are taught. In the faculty of Commerce and Management the subjects taught as per the Mysore University curricula with Computer Science as an additional component.

There is a provision of horizontal mobility in the college. It is noteworthy that varied elective options are made available to the students. University academic bodies decide the courses and curriculum of various undergraduate programmes wherein the college has little say. Some teachers who are members on the Board of Studies however, do take part in the meetings and contribute to the framing of course curricula.

The college has already made a mark in this area as an institution known for maintaining its standards and imparting quality education to the underprivileged and to the rural students.

Criterion-II : Teaching, Learning and Evaluation :
The institution admits the students on the basis of their academic record. Considering the fact that the students are drawn from the neighbouring villages, the institution had been admitting students with 35% marks and above, and at the same time securing good pass percentage for these students at various levels of the undergraduate examination. The Peer Team noted that the institution had been adopting transparent admission policy.

The annual examinations are conducted by the University on the basis of syllabi conveyed to the college every year. The degrees are awarded by the University.

Meritorious students are identified and their merit is recognized by giving prizes and mementoes at the annual functions. Vacant posts are filled by the management. Part-time teachers expressed their concern about low salaries that are being paid by the Management. However, the Peer Team discussed the matter with the chairman of People's Education Trust (PET), and the Chairman assured that he would sympathetically consider the matter.

Students voice their grievances directly or through complaint box. Issues raised by the students are discussed with heads of the departments and through them conveyed to the staff members.

The college has strong faculty of 55 permanent teachers and 12 temporary teachers. The number of administrative and technical staff is 33. The ratio between teaching and non-teaching staff is 3:1. The number of students in the college is 1118. Special classes are held for educationally disadvantaged and rural poor students. Lecture method is supplemented by organising seminars, holding group discussions, arranging study tours, making use of Over Head Projector (OHP), slides, charts, maps etc. Audio visual aids are used for effective teaching. Teachers are appointed on the basis of merit according to the Government of Karnataka norms. The College organizes periodically refresher courses/seminars/conferences/symposia/workshops for the benefit of teachers. 12 temporary teachers are appointed and paid by the Management. Two teachers presented research papers at international conferences. Three teachers presented papers at national conferences. Four teachers are benefited by UGC's Faculty Improvement Programme (FIP) for doing their Ph.D.

Efforts have been made to impart training in Total Quality Management (TQM) to all permanent teachers. Self-appraisal reports prepared by the staff members and student evaluation of teachers conducted twice a year go a long way in bettering the efficiency of the teachers and building better relationship with students.

Criterion-III : Research, Consultancy and extension :
The college has recognized the importance of research and teaching. The college authorities encourage teachers to acquire advance qualifications. The college had been able to sanction study leave for teachers by making adjustments in the teaching schedule. One teacher has applied for UGC minor research project and the teacher was encouraged to prepare and present research papers in International conferences at U.K. and in Japan. Yet another, who completed his Ph.D. from University of Mysore is at present pursuing his Post Doctoral Research in Pensylvania State University, USA. Being an undergraduate college, the faculty has been pursuing qualitative research, which need to be appreciated. The college does not provide any kind of consultancy services both at honorary and at special level, as the concept had not percolated to them as yet.

The extension activities of the college are carried out under the banner of NSS and NCC. The NSS units of the college are active. Besides weekly Shramadan, the units have conducted several special camps. During these camps surveys about literacy, cattle wealth, AIDs awareness programmes, Dental checkups, fight against blind beliefs and promotion of scientific temper among the villagers are conducted. Objective of these units is to inculcate discipline and make the students as responsible citizens.

Criterion-IV : Infrastructure and learning resources :
The college is spread over an area of 3 acres of land on Bangalore-Mysore state highway. Vakkaligara Sarvajanika Vidyarthi Mandira (VSVM) occupies 50% of the land. This is the oldest college in the district started way back in 1966, initially conducting Pre-University courses, and later expanding to offer undergraduate courses. The college needs to have better class room facility. Class rooms are not sufficient to run the college in a single session. Majority of class rooms are having Asbestos roof. Laboratories are provided for Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Electronics, and Computer Science. Proposal is under way to setup a commerce laboratory and Biology museum. The college has adequate infrastructure for offering the undergraduate courses as per the University norms.

Folklore department is very active. This is second department in the jurisdiction of Mysore University. Management is kind enough to invest Rs.30,000/- to 40,000/- every year for purchasing of equipment, costumes, instruments etc. The department has been able to bag many prizes at regional and national level.

The college has a well equipped and ideal sports complex, with compatible facilities. It has an indoor shuttle Badminton stadium and a multi-gym facility. There is an Aquatic Center where two national level short course swimming competitions are held. College also has a decent cricket stadium where Ranaji Trophy cricket match was held. Besides, college also has Tennis court, Basket ball court and play grounds for Khokho, Volley-ball Kabaddi etc for the use of students. One girl student is winner of Ekalavya award for her distinguished performance in Kho-kho. Future plan is to build an athletic stadium.

The college library caters to the needs of about 1100 students. There are 26000 books in the Library. Computerisation of Library is yet to take place. Management has plans to construct new library building in near future. An auditorium named Swami Vivekanda Vidyarthi Sabhangana Mandir with a seating capacity of 600 had been constructed. There are cultural organizations like 'Geleyara Balaga' and 'Janadani'. The institution faces certain hardships because of the lack of required man power to conduct various courses. The adequate replacement of Grant-in-aid teachers proceeding on retirement is not forth coming. It is of serious concern to the stake-holders, to the Management and to the community at large. The management appointed part-time and temporary teachers are not adequately compensated. This would hamper the teaching-learning process in the long run. The matter had to be addressed seriously by the Government of Karnataka, by the Management and by the community.

Criterion-V : Student support and Progression :
The college publishes its updated prospectus every year. It contains details about courses, rules and regulations of admission, the details of the fee structure, availability of scholarships, various services available on the college campus and guidelines for admissions. The details of the financial aid and concessions available as per rules of central government and state government are mentioned. Management has printed and distributed free calendars to each student. There is KSF-PET employment information, competitive exams training center. This center gives training to those who want to take up the common entrance test for medical and engineering. It also gives training to aspirants who want to take up civil service examinations of Karnataka. The center prepares the students for Bank examinations, CET for B.Ed., TCH, and National Talent Search Examination. However, the college does not seem to be maintaining a record on the students progression. This needs to be rectified.

The college has one NCC Company and two units of NSS. Four NCC cadets have been selected to participate in Republic Day Parade in New Delhi. For NSS, apart from weekly Shramadan, special camps are conducted. During special camps survey about literacy and cattle wealth are conducted. AIDS awareness, dental checkups, fight against blind beliefs etc are taken up.

Management provides scholarships to poor and meritorious students. SC and ST scholarships are given as per rules. Besides, the management announces and awards prizes to students who stand first in the final examination. 'Dollu Drum' dance and one-act play 'Ooru Bhanga' had bagged prizes at national level. The students attendance is strictly monitored. The Peer Team in its interactions with the students and teachers found that the college has the support system well established. The students are given practical training in certain subjects like jourlisim and field trips for students are being organized by the departments of Botany, Economics, History, Sociology and Zoology, to name a few. The Peer Team also verified a project work done by the students.

The college has adequate sports and training facilities for the students with the sports instructors. It is heartening to note one girl student is a recipient of prestigious Ekalavya award for her outstanding achievement in Kho-Kho.

The Chairman of the Governing council had assured the Peer Team that he would look into the matter and would do the needful. The Peer Team found a positive approach being adopted by the governing body in resolving matters related to the academic community. It is hoped that the governing body would sympathetically consider to enhance the consolidated pay of temporary and part-time teachers at least to the modest amount of Rs.5000/- per month. It is also suggested that only qualified teachers with experience must be recruited in the interest of quality assurance.
