Aspirants urge varsity to clarify whether PG electronics can apply for CRC posts
Srinagar, Aug 16 (KNO): Students who have already completed their masters in electronics have requested the education department to clarify if they are eligible for posts of ‘cluster resource coordinator for teaching support ‘.
Last week, the education department advertised posts of Cluster Resource Coordinators for teaching support and 55 posts for physics subjects.
Scores of PG electronics aspirants said the department has not clarified whether they can apply or not and if they will be treated at par with PG physics.
They told news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), that as education evolves, “interdisciplinary knowledge becomes increasingly important and the field of Electronics shares fundamental principles with Physics and is fundamentally the applied branch of Physics, MSc Electronics students possess a solid foundation in scientific principles, mathematics, and analytical thinking – all of which are essential qualities for a Physics lecturer”.
“By opening the eligibility criteria to MSc Electronics graduates, we can tap into a pool of potential educators who can bring a fresh perspective and valuable insights to the Physics department,” aspirants added.
The CSIR conducts NET in Physical sciences in which all applied branches of Physics including electronics are eligible to appear.
“Their diverse backgrounds can enrich classroom discussions, foster cross-disciplinary collaboration, and bring real-world applications to traditional Physics concepts,” they said.
They requested the School Education Department to review and consider amending the eligibility criteria for lecturer positions in the Physics department and include MSc Electronics post graduates.
“This change can not only enhance the quality of education but also encourage cross-pollination of ideas between different scientific disciplines,” they said.
They requested the higher ups to look into the matter at the earliest—(KNO)
