Encyclopaedia of Higher Education (5 Volumes)
The Progress of higher Education in a society shapes the advancement of technology and enhances the skill of human resources to scale the peak of human development. Undoubtedly, universities, now-a-days, are confronting challenges which are multi-dimensional and multi-faceted. The 21st century has rightly been epitomized as the ?Century of Knowledge? as there will be an explosion of information. Higher education, over the years, has made substantial contribution to the socio-economic developmental needs of our country. The present work-Encyclopaedia of Higher Education: The Indian Perspective-has been categorised in the following manner: Vol.1 Historical Survey-Pre-Independence Period, Vol.2 Historical Survey-Post-Independence Period, Vol.3 Committees and Commissions, Vol.4 Convocation Addresses, Vol. 5 Scientific and Technical Education.
