The courses are designed keeping in view the demand for the subject, scope for the intellectual development of the student within the disciplinary boundaries, the relevance of the course broadly for the region and the nation, employability of the student, and his ability to contribute, through the skills and practical training acquired at the University, to regional and national development and to national wealth. That Nellore is fast metamorphosing itself into an industrial city with a concentration of major industries around a twenty kilometer zone of the area where the University is going to be located and that the district administration is gearing itself up to prepare a HR Atlas for the purpose are also factors taken into the reckoning in the matter of course design. Thus the perspective is futuristic. Further, a student should evolve himself into a useful citizen contributing not only to the productivity of the nation but also to the promotion and upholding of citizenship values. Hence the focus is on holistic training.
