Don Bosco University launches first Online degree courses

(Nov.02,2010) Don Bosco University - DBU, in India’s north-eastern Assam State, is all set to launch its first online degree programmes. The Guwahati-based University, already in its third year, plans to offer global access to its degree courses in seven programmes in three disciplines. “We hope to target thousands of working-class young people across the globe,” said Vice-Chancellor Dr. Stephen Mavely SDB. He said students will be able to have access to the best professors from around the country.
Currently, DBU conducts regular degree courses in Management, Engineering, Information Technology and Computer Applications from Don Bosco College of Engineering and Technology at Azara, and Don Bosco Institute of Management at Kharguli, Guwahati. Construction work on the 272-acre main campus at Tapesia, ( 16 km from state capital Dispur,) is to commence shortly. Within three to five years, the DBU main campus residential complex is expected to house some six thousand students and staff. Besides the academic and administrative complex, the campus will also have a tea plantation, orange grove, sports complex, chapel, convention centre, hospital facilities, bio-diversity park, as well as a free high school for one thousand poor students.
