CHENNAI: The Madras high court has made it clear that completion of probation for professors appointed to state universities is not automatic, and that in the event of non-confirmation of their service after the expiry of probation period, such candidates cannot claim regularisation as a right.

Justice V Anand Venkatesh made the observation while concurring with the submissions of advocate P Sanjai Gandhi, who represented Tamil Nadu Open University and dismissing pleas moved by professors E Ravi and S Prabakaran.
According to the petitioners, they were originally working as lecturers in Annamalai University. In 2014, Tamil Nadu Open University called for applications for the posts of professor and associate professors. The petitioners applied for the posts and got selected. On November 28, 2015, they were appointed to their respective posts with twoyear probation with a lien for the same period in Annamalai University. However, even after the expiry of the probation period they were not absorbed permanently for the posts. The lien provided for them in Annamalai University also expired. Therefore, they made a representation to the open university to regularise their service. To their shock, the open university refused to absorb them permanently and passed an order dated February 1, 2018. Aggrieved, they moved the present plea challenging their removal.

Anna University
CHENNAI: To reverse the droopy admission trend of engineering courses, colleges in Tamil Nadu have turned their eyes towards emerging areas such as artificial intelligence, data science and machine learning. More than 35 engineering colleges have applied to Anna University expressing interest to start BTech courses in artificial intelligence and data science, and computer science and business systems for the next academic year.

All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has announced that engineering colleges would be allowed to start new courses in artificial intelligence, data science, cyber security, machine learning and block chain. Anna University had invited application for starting a course in artificial intelligence and data science. It has also began to frame syllabus for the course.

“Colleges must get AICTE’s approval to offer the new programme. The council may allow fresh intake for BTech courses in National Board of Accreditation (NBA)-accredited departments,” officials from Anna University said.
“Artificial intelligence and data analyticshold great future. Information technology will be used in every stream. Students who study these courses will have a bright future,” said K Maran, director of Sairam Institutions.
B Chidambararajan, principal of Valliammai Engineering College, urged the university to work with AICTE to enable colleges to offer these courses from the next academic year.
The university will check whether the colleges have necessary infrastructure to offer the courses and accord permission. “We have to train our engineering graduates in all emerging streams such as artificial intelligence, internt of things (IoT) and block chain to make them employable. Even cyber security has a good demand for engineers. After proper inspection, the university will allow colleges to start such courses,” said M K Surappa, vice-chancellor of Anna University.

But university professors also cautioned against offering the specialised course at undergraduate level saying courses such as agriculture engineering, geo informatics and mining, which had initial attraction, have lost steam. They said specialised courses should be offered only at the postgraduate level.
Meanwhile, many engineering colleges have sought to discontinue traditional courses such as civil engineering and electrical and electronics engineering due to poor enrolment.
