Bangalore university is one of the biggest university in Karnataka. This university offers many degree courses.Now it is planning to offer B Tech/BE through distance education.In this article you will come to know more about it.

If you think only private institutes starting new engineering collegs in Karnataka, Then it is wrong.Even Bangalore University is also going to offering BE or BTech through distance education.We know in Karnataka there are several private engineering colleges are there.We have also some government colleges.Some of the engineering colleges controlled under VTU and some are autonomous.

For now Bangalore University has only one engineering college in it's directory.It has also taken a leaf out of the book of the Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) and the Karnataka State Women's University (KSWU).by offering Bachelor of Engineering (BE) and Bachelor of Technology (B Tech) courses through distance learning.

Bangalore university is thinking that high number of students are like to do engineering through distance mode. Especially who are in rural and semi-rural areas.So, the university is going to fulfill their dream by offering distance education.

The potential has been successfully tapped by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) which offers technical as well as medical courses. KSOU and KSWU also offer BE/B Tech and M Tech courses.

To begin with, the courses will be offered in civil and mechanical engineering—two streams which have been facing acute shortage of professionals as private colleges, especially in rural areas, have shunned them. The varsity will start the courses at top 50 colleges for four years, on an experimental basis. The programmes would be reviewed later. The BU says it will start the courses from the academic year 2011-12, if all approvals are in place in a month. It hopes to make a whopping Rs 100 crore in four years by offering the courses.

The blueprint for revenue generation from these courses is ready. Each college will admit at least 400 students. That is to say, 20,000 students will study at 50 colleges. The annual fee will be Rs 20,000 (IGNOU, KSOU, and other universities charge the same).Thus, in the fourth year, the BU can make Rs 40 crore from first-year students, Rs 30 crore from the second-year students, Rs 20 crore from the third-year students, and Rs 10 crore from the final year students.
