Union Education Minister Urges IITs and IIMs to Embrace Multidisciplinary Approach

Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Education Minister, stated on Sunday that the Centre has advised IITs and IIMs to become multi-disciplinary in order to travel outside their particular areas of specialization.

While addressing at the opening of the Odisha Research Centre, Pradhan stated that the National Education Policy, 2020 prioritizes multidisciplinary education, and that IITs and IIMs will follow suit.

At an occasion here, Odisha Governor Raghubar Das, his Chhattisgarh counterpart Biswa Bhusan Harichandan, and Pradhan jointly inaugurated the center.
The center will conduct research in the fields of art, culture, archaeology, tradition and literature, Odisha sociology, political process and political culture, agriculture, commerce, business and industry, contemporary Odisha development trends, science and technology, healthcare, and future technology.

It will also work on smart cities, climate change, protection of the environment, sustainable development, semiconductors, rare earths and advanced minerals, the minister said.

In 2036, when Odisha will celebrate the centenary of its formation, and in 2047, when the country will celebrate the centenary of India’s independence, the ORC will prepare a roadmap for the development of Odisha and Odia language, he said.

The center was founded in partnership with the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), the Ministry of Education’s Indian Knowledge Systems Division, IIM Sambalpur, IIT Kharagpur, and IIT Bhubaneswar.

The Centre’s goal is to create creative epistemological frameworks for investigating diverse and nuanced aspects of Odisha’s history, culture, economics, and society.
