Higher ed links ...

Are we (finally) ready for four-year BS programs in the sciences? [I like the idea!].

A curious twist to Valson Thampu's PhD saga. Here's some background, and you might be interested in this story too.

Just a few days before it enters its centenary year, IISc names four new IISc Fellows: Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Mr. Ratan Tata, Prof. Roddam Narasimha and Prof. M.S. Swaminathan. The press release is here.

Prof. P. Balaram, Director, IISc, devotes his most recent Current Science to remembering the contributions of Prof. Morris Travers, the institution's first Director.

    The link onthe 4 year BS program says:The Bangalore-based Indian Institute of Science and the Indian Institutes of Technology could be the first ones to introduce the four-year programme.

    Is IISc now opening undergraduate courses too? Sounds good.
