At long last, the Odisha Legislative Assembly has passed the IIIT Bhubaneswar Bill. Here is a short FAQ regarding this bill.

Q: Have we become a University
A: Wait. Not yet. The Governor has the give accent to the Bill. The Government have to notify that the Act comes to effect on a particular date. That's when the Institute will become a University.

Q: What will this mean for the Institute
A: The Institute will have Academic Autonomy for floating new courses, design curriculum, adopt pedagogy, evaluation methods etc.

Q: How will the Institute use University status.
A. To start with the Institute will offer Doctoral Programmes, and more Masters programmes. The B.Tech. Programme will be made more rigorous.

It have been a long, winding and arduous journey so far.

The University status will eliminate one stumbling block and a big excuse for not achieving our potential. The Institute has to buck up and race ahead to achieve its mission.

PS: My blog on University status in 2010 was the most watched and commented one.
